Stax Cycle Club is the brand new feature of the CitiFit Professional Training state-of-the-art facility, which provides professional instruction in the fields of exercise, nutritional expertise and therapy services, located in Calgary’s community of Inglewood.
The Ryan Murphy Team was enlisted to be on the project to enrich the space to feature the proposed new spin class chamber.
These are some glimpses into what CitiFit clients were enjoying on their daily pursuit of body and mind perfection.
The space features floor to ceiling windows, allowing for natural light in lieu of an artificial fluorescent cast, and had originally offered food services to accompany CitiFit’s patrons their typical workout routines.
The plan was to take things to the next level and add an enhancing element to the facility. This would be the Stax Cycle Club. Collaborators included Within Design and Ryan Murphy Construction to bring the client’s vision into reality.
And so it begins…
Tarps were secured to maintain the construction area.
Demolition of existing reception desk and coffee bar with café seating area involved removal of all fixtures.
Subsequently, the concrete floor had to be cored, filled and finished prior to the framing and walls.
Framing goes up
Next up: a gypsum ceiling was created to serve as a sound barrier, followed by installation of the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning systems (HVAC).
Bird’s eye view from outside the spin class unit cell. The painting and caption as seen here in the distance was about to become a piece of the past.
Black figurative murals and quotes are primed to prepare the walls for a uniform coat of paint.
Foil-backed insulation was then installed as part of the sound-rated ceiling assembly.
…and a progress shot of the space nearing completion.
Rubber flooring is complete here, protected by cardboard sheets as the Instructor Stage is prepared for flooring installation.
The new rubber floor’s unveiling concludes the final clean-up!
Behold: the brand new reception area, as seen here. The concept, courtesy of the masterminds from Within Design, is finalized by some white splashes of beautifully hardy orchids and classically lined Gladioli floral arrangements to welcome regulars and new clients.
Another angle of the beautiful harmony of clean lines and textures, with splashes of lovely accents that pop with just a touch of attitude.
