Gyms have special lighting needs and a gym equipped with a good lighting is a must for athletes to be safe as well as being focused. However, gym lighting can be an often-overlooked element of design, and the right lighting can greatly help transform the gym into something that inspires and motivates gym-goers. Being more creative with the color and layout of the lighting can give your gym more talking points and help it stand out from competitors. Besides, a well-designed gym lighting system will also enjoy cost-saving benefits. More and more gyms start turning away from traditional fluorescent lighting which is not only costly but may cause headache and exhaustion on athletes. Here are some tips for you to upgrade your gym lighting.
What Kind of Lights Should You Consider?
1. Smart lighting
There are many different kinds of smart lights and this type of lighting is often controlled by an app on your smart phone or computer. One of its features is that it can be made to illuminate in a wide range of colors which will make your gym become more attractive. In addition, they are also capable of doing other things such as fading on, fading off and changing colors.
Some gyms installed with this lighting system even program it to light gradually in the morning and to emit dingy light in the afternoon.
