Luminous yellow, natural light and the calm of nature’s greens... a fresh design approach at Stepz Fitness.

“We have created a new space that allows people to feel better when they’re walking in and focuses their minds on their workout and themselves, as opposed to worrying about what other people are thinking," said Waller.

Maximising the amount of natural light that filters into each room was an important element for the design team.

Sydney based clinical psychologi­st, Georgia MacNevin points to studies showing the benefits of natural environmen­ts.

“Natural materials in any workout environmen­t can have a calming effect… [and] are great for increasing positivity and productivi­ty," she says.

“These days, psychologi­sts are prescribin­g outdoor activities like gardening and hiking to address a range of mental health issues.

“Being in open green spaces helps clear the mind and makes people feel happier or less stressed… [and] including that in a gym environmen­t can be beneficial to their moods and general wellbeing.”

All New South Wales Stepz Fitness gyms are sporting the new look and it will be rolled out across Queensland outlets over the next 12 months.
