Yellow for sure!
Lots of TVs, some set to sports channels, some to news, some to MTV
Music, yes. I like indie music but your best bet is top 40...NO DANCE TUNES!!! Canned dance music attracts the cheeseballs.
Ideal change room would have both wet and dry saunas, lots of showers, both large and small lockers, and a table with moisturisers, hair products, q-tips. And of course, all of it kept VERY clean. FREE towels too.
Also, I think there should be water coolers easily accessed in all sections of the gym, as well as paper towels and cleaning spray to remind people to do their share. There is nothing worse than a grubby gym!
It's great, too, if you have big windows to the outside, particularly for the treadmills. It can be hard to focus on tvs when running, but it's still nice to be able to gaze at something. My favourite gym ever had giant windows.
I love talking about this stuff, too! Unfortch, i just have a gym in my condo complex that's underground and while the equipment is fine, no music is allowed and there is nothing to look at. When i go to fancier gyms, I realize how much easier it is to get through a long workout when you have some distractions! I do anywhere from 45 mins to 2 hours of cardio at a time, so music is a huge plus!
Best of luck with your dream of opening a gym...
