ECOFRIENDLY EXERCISE Akira Bryson incorporates sustainable building practices into Flywheel Sports Inc.’s new fitness studios BY MELISSA ANDERS
FLYWHEEL SPORTS INC.’S FITNESS STUDIOS SEE A LOT OF ACTION. The sheer number of people who use the exercise equipment and the amount of sweat that hits the floors means the building materials have a high turnaround rate. So it makes economic sense for Flywheel, a New York-based chain of fitness studios that offer indoor cycling and barre exercise classes, to take a sustainable approach to building its facilities. It also makes sense from a corporate responsibility standpoint as Flywheel and its well-informed, high-income-earning customers are interested in protecting the environment. “The company has always been a forward-thinking company,” says Akira Bryson, director of construction at Flywheel. “As we find better ways to incorporate sustainable practices, we can certainly do that.”
Recycled materials, including acoustic paneling and rubber floors, are used throughout Flywheel locations.
