When designing the premises, the project architects Peter Zaytsev and Arseniy Borisenko, proceeded first of all from functional zoning. In general the fitness club is designed as a laconic space which is the background for dynamic broken volumes that symbolize in this project «dynamics» and «movement» as the quintessence of all sports and healthy lifestyle.

The functionality of various red volumes presupposes placing of locker rooms, coach rooms and other isolated spaces inside, as well as the division of zones according to noise level: in the two largest volumes located are a «silent» office block and a «noisy» hall with fitness cycles with a powerful audio system and constantly played rhythmic music.

One more feature of the club is cardiovascular machines zone. It is lifted 60 cm up in relation to the floor, so that the visitors, while working out, could see the street through the panoramic windows. Passers-by, in their turn, can see silhouettes in the fourth floor windows – thus the issue of the club promotion among the citizens is solved in a peculiar way.
