The entire cardio and strength workout areas of the first floor will receive new flooring, including an expansion of the popular turf area. Multi-functional Life Fitness Synergy is coming to Old Town the first week in July, and new entrance area landscaping was recently completed.
FFC Gold Coast: In addition to our brand new turf training and group fitness class area on the rooftop, we created additional training space by moving the basketball court end fence sections. Seven new Free Motion DS strength training units have been installed this month, replacing the former line of Free Motion. The free weight area will be expanding this month with the addition of four olympic benches, several additional adjustable benches, and adding three additional dumbbell racks with dumbbells from 5-110 lbs. Some relocation of several pieces of equipment will allow expanded space on the fitness floor. Many new pieces of cardio equipment are arriving later this summer as well!
