It depends on a variety of factors. In many cases, a fitness or wellness center is viewed by an owner or developer exclusively as an amenity for the property. In those cases, Alova Hospitality will assist in determining the proper, scope and layout for the center. However, if the facility is commercial or “for profit,” Alova Hospitality provides feasibility studies that evaluate those factors that need to be considered prior to design and development. A demographic analysis, space program, financial pro forma, capital requirement analysis and Return on Investment (ROI) calculation is provided as part of the study.
Fitness and/or wellness centers are vital to attracting and retaining members, guests, residents, and staff. Fitness and wellness facilities also promote a healthy lifestyle and culture; thus, by including a facility of this type, it will typically be viewed as a positive contribution by the owner or developer regarding the quality of life for individuals and families residing or working at the site. Fitness or wellness centers can also be highly profitable if designed, promoted and operated correctly.
