4 Ways to Customize your Fitness Facility

In a fitness industry that is forever improving and evolving, the design of your fitness center can have a huge impact on the people who use it. With more schools, apartment & multi-family complexes, country clubs, and corporate offices building and maintaining fitness centers, the little details matter more and more in retaining and growing your clientele. Customizing a fitness experience is more than just painting the walls a certain color, it is continuous cohesion between many of the moving parts, from your equipment to your interior design. Here are a few ways that you can customize your fitness center and some examples of facilities to inspire your next project!

1. Branding Your Equipment

The most widespread effect of customization in your facility can be felt in the equipment itself. From color options to custom graphics and logos, there are many choices available to you when designing your space.


2. Interior Design + Wall Decals

What your space looks like impacts the people who use it - with the right interior design strategies, people will be drawn to use your space to it’s highest potential!


3. Flooring for Form + Function

Flooring is a very important aspect in the fitness experience - with the right flooring, your equipment and space can be allowed to shine without excess noise or high-impact stress without compromising aesthetics.


4. Customized Free Weights

If all these other options aren’t enough, plates and dumbbells can be customized to pull every aspect together or brighten up older equipment.

The 2018 Fall Frenzy is Almost Here!

In last year’s edition of Expresso’s Fall Frenzy, 2,074 riders from 186 college and university teams across the U.S. rode for an incredible 52,691 miles and burned over 1.75 million calories. Over the course of 10 days of tournament play, a total 148 days of riding were accumulated.

The Fall Frenzy has proven to be one of Expresso’s biggest annual competitions over the last 5 years, as schools and riders across North America compete head-to-head to log the most miles on their Expresso bikes. Often times each round of competition goes right up until the last minute, with just a few miles between eliminated teams and those moving on.

Binghamton University wins the 2017 Fall Frenzy!

Binghamton University wins the 2017 Fall Frenzy!

Last year, Binghamton University pushed to win the finals, edging out the runners-up in the championship by just 23.8 miles. Binghamton originally partnered with Advantage to install six Expresso S3 bikes in 2011, increased to eight Expresso HD bikes after engagement grew, and secured eight newly-released Expresso GO bikes in the last few months.

The 2018 Fall Frenzy’s qualifying round will begin at midnight (EST) on Wednesday, September 26th and run for 48 hours. Out of a pool of 218 registered college and university teams across the country, the top 16 teams with the most miles will advance to knockout play in the Sweet 16, Super 8, and Fearsome 4 rounds on their road to the Championship on October 24th and 25th.

For full details on this intense competition, check out Expresso’s website and the live leaderboard here.
