The most successful fitness facilities are those centered not just around a workout, but a community.

At Cutler, we strive to develop fitness environments that highlight a facility’s primary offerings, while setting the stage for a healthy lifestyle and an engaged clientele. Our design process is collaborative. We work closely with our clients to understand the unique services that they offer. By developing key touchpoints throughout the customer journey, we create a space that draws attention to those differentiators.

One aspect of fitness facilities that can vary from other typical commercial spaces is that they require a lot from their mechanical, electrical, A/V and sometimes even structural components. The design of these systems is critical because air conditioning, hot water and electricity can be major operating expenses, and make or break a customer’s experience. At Cutler, we manage close coordination with engineering teams to make sure that these vital elements are functional while also aesthetically pleasing.

With experience working alongside owners, facilities managers and franchisees, we understand the intricate challenges of fitness operations. And because we know that retaining top talent is just as important as optimizing the space between spin bikes, we design environments that both gym members and employees will love for years to come.
