Anytime Fitness – Cool Down for a Fitness Center

Case studies


Anytime Fitness Hamilton in Queensland, Australia, is the state’s most awarded Anytime Fitness, but the air inside reflected the impact of every curl, crunch, lift and lunge. Members consistently complained about stuffy, stagnant conditions so management lowered the thermostat set point to 70°F (21°C) – well below their preferred 75°F (24°C). Members were more comfortable, but power bills spiked dramatically. 


One 12-ft (3.7-m) Essence® and two Haiku®84 fans by Big Ass Fans® generate the airflow that Anytime Fitness Hamilton requires to accomplish both goals.


The return on air is a 20% savings on power bills. The staff maintain the thermostat set point at a steady 75°F (24°C) and often leave the air conditioning on entirely during early morning hours, keeping members comfortable. The fans also improved the space’s air quality, clearing the sweaty odor that can plague fitness facilities.
