Monotonous buzzing fills the large, light room. The air is thick and humid with a hint of sweat and perfume. The heavy clanging of metal cuts through the loud din of techno music. Everyday life in the fitness studio at Fitnesspark Aue. What makes it special doesn’t hit guests until they take a second look. Because the sport park is in a large facility of ELA containers.
“Nickelhütte Aue GmbH approached ELA because they had to renovate the building containing the sport park,” explains ELA Area Sales Manager Marco Poguntke. During the renovation work, the studio was to stay open so that the large number of members could continue training as usual.
Sweating in a container – something that isn’t unpleasant for Managing Director Andre Mayer, but instead an advertising factor. The sport park promotes the facility as a fitness deluxe container village. The studio has everything that a conventional fitness studio needs: an area for free weights, and an area for cardio training with cross trainers, running machines and exercise bikes. The interior with LED lighting is bright and inviting. Split air-conditioning equipment ensures an ideal room temperature. That way, only those who are getting some exercise will sweat.
The facility is on the car park in front of the bowling alley and Icehouse Aue and was set up in no time. Managing Director Mayer: “It was exciting to watch how the container village was erected in no time at all. It’s impressive what’s possible these days.”
