Following the launch of new franchise gym, énergie Fitness Milton Keynes in April, the new ‘énergie Central’ headquarters has moved to its new home just next door.
Using inspiration from the likes of Google, the new £1m, 15,000sqft facility encourages collaboration and puts employee wellness, productivity and the needs of franchisees centre-stage, a move which further enables the growth and development of the énergie brand. Watch the video below to see a time-lapse of the new énergie Central unfolding.
Part of the functional designs includes a running track connecting the reception to the offices, high-standing communal workspaces, “hot desks” for mobile working, “hot boxes” for storage, quiet pods for concentration, a large training space for franchisees and club staff, and a bookable room aptly named “Napland” complete with a napping pod to encourage staff to take breaks.
The 5,000sqft franchise built on-site not only benefits employees with a free membership to promote health within the work place, but also allows franchisees and prospective franchisees to see a live énergie franchise in action.
Chairman and CEO, Jan Spaticchia commented: “In terms of the training, having the franchise on-site is essential. It’s immediate – you can go and actually touch and feel and go in a working énergie facility.”
