Changing rooms: Time for a change

Great changing rooms are one of the main reasons people join a gym. Get inspired by HCM’s roundup of the latest high-end installations

Published in Health Club Management 2020 issue 3
Lincombe Hall Hotel
Supplier: Crown Sports Lockers
Sam Palmer

Lincombe Hall Hotel, an AA 4-star boutique destination in Torquay, UK, opened a new £2m luxury gym and spa, for guests and members, last November.

Changing room specialists, Crown Sports Lockers, worked on the design, construction and fit-out of the spa, alongside interior designers, Ashton House Design and members of the Powis family, the hotel’s owners.

Crown manufactured and installed bespoke male and female changing areas to chime with the facility’s coastal theme. The spa interiors include etched glass graphics and graduated blue pool tiling.

Lockers have solid-timber shaker doors with a painted finish in contemporary pastel shades to create a “warm, cosy and relaxing environment”, according to Crown’s project manager, Sam Palmer, who worked with the team from the first meeting to the final signoff.

"The feature column delivers a memorable first-view on entering the changing room" - Sam Palmer

Cork locker key fobs overcame an operational challenge, as they float if lost in the pool, making retrieval straightforward. An unusual feature within the women’s changing area is the central seating area, with integral upholstered bench seating and an iridescent mosaic column.

“This feature was a first for us,” says Palmer. “The column delivers a memorable first-view on entering the changing room. Its creation was only made possible because we have the manufacturing specialisms to deliver.”

Harbour Club Chelsea
Supplier: Keyless Co
Wiktoria Korzeniewicz

David Lloyd’s Harbour Club, Chelsea was refurbished in 2019, with Keyless1 locks from Keyless Co specified in custom gold finish to match the golden-brass modern hardware and gold panelled lockers in the changing rooms.

Keyless Co – a US custom lock manufacturer with global reach – provides sustainable lock solutions that also offer advanced locker room security.

"Ease-of-use makes these locks a favorite in the fitness industry, while a reprogrammable master-key system makes day-to-day operations more straightforward" - Wiktoria Korzeniewicz

“Locks are battery-free, substantially reducing operating costs,” says Keyless Co’s Wiktoria Korzeniewicz. “Ease-of-use makes these locks a favorite in the fitness industry, while a reprogrammable master-key system makes day-to-day operations more straightforward.”

Third Space Islington
Supplier: Ridgeway

High end gym operator Third Space and locker designer and supplier Ridgeway joined forces to create the changing room facilities at the new Third Space Islington, which opened in January.

Lockers and ancillary furniture were manufactured and installed by Ridgeway in a washed oak finish, with dark grey selected for the remaining fixtures to enhance the overall look.

Changing facilities for children were provided separately for the club’s new Little Space gym – the first one to open for the operator – to help the successful segregation of family and adult members.

"Our mission was to create changing rooms that not only separated children from adults, but also reflect the unparalleled excellence for which Third Space has become renowned" - Mark Cutler

Mark Cutler, owner of Ridgeway, said: “Our mission was to create changing rooms that not only separated children from adults, but also reflect the unparalleled excellence for which Third Space has become renowned in all aspects of its operations.”

Harry Kay, property and facilities director at Third Space, commented: “The reaction from our members to the changing rooms at the new Islington club has been overwhelmingly positive and has helped set a new level of expectation.”
