Markets we serve


Hotel and Leisure Facilities

Gone are the days when a hotel gym or spa was regarded as an additional luxury – today’s discerning hotel guests expect nothing less than a well designed hotel gym. Not only do great hotel leisure facilities tempt customers back, helping build repeat business, but a well designed hotel leisure club  can also be a profitable sideline when offered to an external, local membership.

Gym Africa’s hotel leisure design team boasts vast and varied experience in every sector of hotel fitness and leisure– from working as personal trainers to designing, creating and managing hotel fitness centres. Gym Africa has worked with some of the most prestigious hotels in South Africa, delivering gym designs to exacting equirements and non negotiable time-scales. Our hotel gym design work is, of course, bespoke to each specific facilities requirements, with a real guest and public user focus.



Personal Training Studio

Personal training studios, by their very nature, have to provide an exclusive space for the trainer to work with their clients, either in a gym or studio environment. When designing a personal training studio Gym Africa work closely with the client and the personal trainers in order to fully understand their operating model, training methodology and client approach. We then prepare designs to reflect the clients’ desires, ensuring that the space will appeal to the customer base that they are aiming to attract.

Private Gyms

If you’re the owner or manager of a gym or health club – or are planning to open one – we can help you compete in this crowded marketplace. As the big fitness and gym chains expand and  up their game in terms of equipment and gym quality, you need to have a well designed, well equipped gym in order to compete. We have the expertise, insights and knowledge to help you do just that – and to take your fitness club to the next level. Our fitness supplier relationships and industry knowledge can help you save money on both gym equipment and operating costs.    


Budget Gyms

At this time the fastest growing and perhaps most exciting sector in the market place. With budget gym chains growing at an exponential rate and more and more middle market operators adjusting their operating model to a value proposition this is also fast becoming a crowded and competitive sector. Whilst customers are happy to forgo some “luxury” services in return for a reduced monthly outlay, there is still an expectation that the provider offers an environment that is pleasing and fresh. Equipment choices are also a key decision for operators looking for value yet still expecting excellent reliability, minimal running costs and quick service response times.The Gym Africa team understands how important it is that they ensure clients get the balance right. Gym Africa’s design team will ensure your gym is budget in name only, providing an interior aesthetic and layout that belies your price point.
