These days, every hotel needs a gym – but quality varies immensely, as does the value of the gym to each hotel. At ETHIC, a member is a member, so we are setting up our eco-gyms to bring travelers and locals together through wellness. Setup to be 24 hour facilities, fitETHIC will be accessible through app-entry verification only, and we will partner with mission-aligned trainers and physical therapists to provide that personal and local touch. Gym size & features will vary, based on market demand & size constraints:
Reebok + Crossfit have used containers as mobile gyms, making the necessary equipment easy to relocate.
This Reebok x Crossfit gym in Russia isn’t containers, but shows the simplicity of layout, which containers can mimic.
An indoor-outdoor container gym home setup.
fitETHIC Eco-Gym + Spa (Example)
A double-wide container gym with glass windows to the outside.
A rendering for a container gym with all side walls replaced with glass – only necessary if great views exist.
A Single Container Gym
Even brands like Nike have used containers for pop-up retail shops, offering partnership opportunities.
A Lululemon brand pop-up cycling event using a container at SXSW in Austin.
A container gym equipment storage unit.
Containers can even be turned into pools, like this one for a Hilfiger brand event.
The pool at the Tetris Hostel in Brazil also utilizes a container-pool.
A San Francisco-based project is aiming to build a shipping container bath house/spa.
It would be powered by solar power and utilize rainwater collection to run at low cost.
Using state-of-the-art, energy-generating fitness equipment to develop a true eco-gym, fitETHIC can incentive gym members by rewarding them for how much energy they generate.
