429 The Value Proposition for Rebounding with Recovery Spaces

joan gebhart from creative surfaces“Be passionate about making a difference in other people’s lives” – Joan Gebhart

And that, #FBPFamily, is exactly what Joan Gebhart from Creative Surfaces does. While there are numerous options to choose from when deciding which design firm to work with, there are very few partners that will go the extra mile for your business. Joan is one of the best in the business. What sets her and Creative Surfaces apart is their years of experience in the fitness industry, the fact that they work in other industries and can pull design ideas from different business models, and the relationship-focused team you’ll work with.

As the fitness industry recovers from the global pandemic, you may look at your health club and think that there are certain spaces that simply don’t work anymore – maybe Kids Club? Joan opens up about the best space to bring into your fitness space – a recovery area. Whether it be for active recovery (stretching, etc.) or simply a mindful, meditation room, she speaks about how you can repurpose an existing area and bring in a revenue-generating space.

Joan also walks us through what quick, affordable, and easy-to-implement design enhancements can make a huge difference and give your fitness space a refresh!
