Light & Colours:
The ideal location of a fitness centre is vast space with high ceilings and large windows providing wide horizon views. The purpose is to make space look bigger and wide. But in the case, where a Fitness centre is to be located in basement or a space with little exposure to natural light and view, there emphasis should be on to add more lights and colours to indoor elements such as floor, walls and ceilings. Dark ceilings with hanging lights, walls with cool graphics and painted with warmer tones add versatility to space.
In general, now a day’s, bare ceilings with darker shades are more in common and they certainly look cooler and trendier. The other option is to go for traditional gypsum board ceiling or panel ceilings. While it may depend upon what your personal aesthetic taste, but there needs to be few technical considerations as well, like prevailing ceiling height and acoustics.

Few also suggest for carpet tiles, but they absorb dusts and more prone to stains hence better to avoid. Flooring can also be colour coded to demarcate various areas like circulation etc. Artificial grass floors are also in trends, it can selectively be used to any particular area to add different colour and texture.
