Mt. Kisco, New York
Power Four Fitness began as a branding study for a new high-end, high-intensity interval training boutique. Through an exploration of "euphoria," we mapped three concepts – a dance club in Brooklyn, a night in Barcelona and a roller derby match. Power Four Fitness, a 3,200 SF workout studio in Mt. Kisco, NY, grew out of this mapping exercise – with intense, colorful LED lighting and a DJ booth. To heighten the anticipation of the workout, the architecture features peeks and glimpses of variegated lighting and the DJ booth through studio windows. The studio itself – which features four modes of training: run, row, lift and bounce – maximizes the nightclub-like programmable LED fixtures by choreographing them to the workout and the DJ's music. Prolonging the post-party euphoria is the after-party space, a relaxing cool-down area that flows into the spa-like locker rooms.
