Macomb Athletic Club (“MAC”) acquired Metro Family Fitness in the fall of 2014 with big plans. Metro Family Fitness was already a superbly equipped gym but lacked in quality. The locker rooms were run down, the lighting was dark, the daycare was dated, and there was not enough open space. MAC management saw that expanding the facility would open up new possibilities for additional services while enabling the equipment to be rearranged and spread out.
To bring a level of service and professionalism unlike any other while recognizing the importance of offering an affordable upscale fitness experience.
Women’s Locker room
The project focus was to design a separate facility exclusively for women. Of the 10,000 square foot expansion almost 2,000 square feet is dedicated to build a brand new women’s locker room with all the amenities expected in an upscale day spa. The elegant ladies locker-room boasts granite counter tops, new lockers, and five private dressing rooms in a spacious well lit setting. Combining elegance and function separates MAC from the rest. The janitorial staff weighed in on the design making cleaning a breeze with high pressure power washer hookups throughout the locker room and scalding hot steam cleaner adapters. The focus on women does not end with an elegant new locker room.
Women’s Only Facility
A 3,000 square foot private women’s only gym with a 2,000 square foot aerobics studio and 1,000 square foot stadium style spin studio is slated to open in December 2014 making the MAC for women the largest and nicest fitness center for women in Michigan. At the MAC women can work out in privacy or use the coed facilities.
The remaining 4,000 square feet of the expansion will relocate and expand the size of the childcare. It will offer fun and activities for children from 6 months – 12 years old.
Men’s Locker room
Men were not left out in the design as the existing women’s locker room will be combined and remodeled and made into one giant locker room.
Functional Training, Boxing & MMA
A brand new functional training and boot camp studio will be built. Macomb Boxing and MMA is locating their facility right next to the functional training and conditioning room.
The new basketball courts are scheduled to open in the winter of 2015.
