Denbighshire Leisure Ltd (DLL) is bringing the first Future Studios immersive fitness experience to Wales as part of its ongoing investment in health and fitness facilities.
The new Studio 360 will be the only immersive fitness space of its kind in the country when it opens next month. Delivered via the UK Leisure Framework, which is managed by DLL and Alliance Leisure, the health and wellness space will offer immersive, all-inclusive experiences to engage and inspire existing group exercise participants and attract new audiences. DLL has worked with creative agency, Flareform, to repurpose an existing exercise studio at Club Rhyl in Denbighshire to produce a one-of-a-kind exercise environment that uses 360-degree projection onto all walls of the room to create seamless animated scenes that transform with each class. The technology allows the operator to create unique settings tailored to specific workouts complete with soundscapes and visuals that react to sound. For example, DLL can run mindfulness sessions in woodlands and yoga on mountain tops, Zumba around dancing flames on a beach, and HIIT classes in a nightclub. The investment will not only enhance the health and fitness offer at Club Rhyl, but will allow DLL to provide experiences that appeal to people of all ages and demographics to help encourage more members of the community to take part in exercise. “Our aim is to deliver one of the most-innovative and exciting fitness clubs in Wales”, said Jamie Groves, managing director of DLL. “Using the Future Studios technology, we can create any immersive environment that people want to exercise in and it means users can enjoy a different experience every time they visit a class, our instructors can deliver even-more-engaging workouts, and we can offer something for everyone. “As the first immersive group exercise experience of its kind in Wales, Studio 360 will take the DLL class programme to another level.”
