National Fitness West Knoxville

Envisioned as a temple to health and fitness

Comprising two stories and 120,000 square feet, there is something for everyone and for every need:

  • A cardio cinema
  • Indoor/outdoor pools
  • Weight-lifting areas
  • Comfortable and relaxing locker rooms
  • Indoor running track
  • Rock climbing walls
  • Racquetball and basketball courts
  • A juice bar café
  • Personal training spaces

The building was envisioned as a temple to health and fitness, and the exterior reflects this in the classical columned design providing ample natural light and views to often stunning views of the surrounding hills.

The plan revolves around the dramatic two-story entry rotunda which serves as the welcoming area as well as the organizing focus of the varied spaces which are connected to it.
