Guadalupe Regional Wellness Center Is So Much More Than Just a Gym
The Guadalupe Regional Wellness Center in Seguin, Texas, is located within a small regional hospital and features a built-in fitness center that’s open to the community.
Escape teamed up with Marathon Fitness to reimagine an old racquetball court and transform it into a space that provided members with functional exercise, small group training, and a dedicated environment for personal training.
It is so much more than just a gym and offers members—aged 18 to 90 plus—a variety of fitness options, amenities, and a supportive staff. The Guadalupe Regional Wellness Center has a big active aging community, and they absolutely love the space.
One of the main pain points we solved for this client was delivering a functional fitness solution that worked in a very old building. That meant they required gym equipment that didn’t need to be anchored down.
The ability to outfit the facility with freestanding frames was a huge selling point for this project and was one of the first large freestanding frames we designed. Our team introduced the MARS screen to deliver full-time digital functional fitness coaching when small group and personal training isn’t running.
We also integrated:
- Olympic stations
- An assortment of easy to identify functional tools
- Storage bays
- Custom wall graphics
Overall, this project has been a huge success for the customer, especially considering it is an inclusive space for any user or demographic.
