1 Hotel South Beach Announces First-Ever Spartan Gym

November 3, 2016 -

Debuting December 2016 as a first of its kind in the fitness world, 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach has announced it will be home to the first-ever Spartan Gym.

Anticipated to open December 1, the 14,000-square foot indoor space will blend the famous Spartan Race, the leader in the sport of obstacle racing, with the mission-driven, wellness-focused luxury lifestyle brand of 1 Hotels. The one-of-a-kind gym will feature spaces designed with state-of the-art equipment and offer education from local, certified Spartan trainers dedicated to helping those of all fitness levels achieve strength and endurance. This unprecedented collaboration will cater to travelers looking to not only stay in fitness routines while on the road, but offer them access to trainers, equipment and targeted technique classes exclusively available at 1 Hotel South Beach.

Available to hotel guests and residents of 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach, the gym will divide itself by Spartan's core areas of fitness: athleticism, strength, endurance and mind. Each of these rooms are surrounded by a central area which will feature obstacle-inspired offerings including overhead ropes, nets, and pipes for traditional Spartan course training. Additionally, the gym will include three classrooms for group-style workouts, one of which can be used as a private training room for one-on-one Spartan training by certified trainers from the area. Outdoor areas surrounding the gym, a designated Spartan yoga deck, the property's private beach, and the hotel's grounds which, includes 600 feet of pristine beachfront, will also be utilized for specialty classes and challenges with sprawling ocean views.

With a capacity of up to 289 people, the Spartan Gym will boast cutting-edge workout equipment for each of its core focus areas. The athleticism area focuses on the body's stability, coordination and balance through natural body movement with ample space and equipment for complex, skill-developing workouts. The strength area is designed for power with weight machines, free weights and other strength testing equipment. The endurance area targets aerobic and anaerobic training with brand new cardio equipment. Lastly, the mind area is meant for yoga and unique recovery experiences with foam rollers and yoga equipment for post-workout stretching and meditation.

As part of the Spartan Gym experience, 1 Hotel South Beach will offer specialty packages for guests to fully embrace their inner Spartan, including dedicated menus, class recommendations, spa treatments and more. In addition, 1 Hotel South Beach and Spartan Gym plan to offer Spartan Weekends and Weeks in 2017 to support those training for upcoming races across the country.

Designed by Gray Organschi Architecture, leaders in sustainable design and production, guests will enter an oversized industrial steel door into the world of Spartan – with raw steel, concrete walls and oversized signature Spartan imagery. Large open rooms will feature full floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the property's South Pool. Incorporating the 1 Hotels' brand mission of sustainability into its design, reclaimed and recycled wood will also be used throughout the space. The open and natural design features Gabion-style walls lined in brick and rebar, adding texture and luminosity to the space, a hallmark of the 1 Hotels' brand.

Founded in 2010, Spartan Race has become the world's leading obstacle race company, with more than 1 million racers participating in Spartan Races in over 25 countries in 2016.

Using Spartan-certified trainers from the local South Florida area, holistic training will be provided to all skills levels, from beginner Sprint Spartans to the more advanced Beast Spartans. Other notable features include men's and women's locker rooms – with materials made from reclaimed and recycled wood, men's and women's steam rooms, private showers and an exclusive Spartan retail store.
