Construction Update 06/02/2024 

The framing of the first and second floor has been completed! We will begin to tape and texture as well as install all the drywall beginning this week. The HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems are still being completed, but we hope they will be finished and pass inspection within the next couple of weeks. We are excited to announce we will be adding an outdoor turf area to our first-floor functional training space! Members and guests can partake in outdoor workouts in this turf area which will be accessible from the functional training area.

The second-floor concrete pour has passed inspection, and our stairway is in place! Framing of the first and second floor is nearing completion and we have begun to lay the groundwork for the HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems. In the coming weeks we are hoping to install windows and door frames as well as complete and pass inspection with the HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems.

Construction Update 04/25/2024

Our final support beams are in place and the structural flooring and insulation have been installed! The stairway connecting the first and second floors of the new weight room is currently in the process of being constructed. Once that is completed, the concrete for the second floor will be poured which we are hoping happens in the next few days. After framing the first and second floors and a few structural safety tests we will be moving onto beginning the HVAC, electrical and plumbing processes.

Construction Update 04/01/2024

After a delay in the delivery of our structural steel beams, we are happy to let everyone know that we have received our steel and are beginning to put the structural framing in place for our new weight room. After the structural framing is in place and passes a safety test, we will begin to pour the concrete for the second floor and build the stairway connecting the two floors. We are also hoping to add the insulation while this process takes place.

Our concrete pour on the main level of our remodel project has passed the stress test! The next step will be placing structural support beams and outlining the vestibule for the second floor. In the month to come we are hoping to build the stairwell and pour the concrete for the second floor as well. If all goes well, we are hoping to begin some framing by the end of the month.

The demolition phase of our remodel project has been completed! Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding throughout the process. We have obtained our building permit and will begin the building phase of the project this week. The building phase will be the longest portion of our project as we construct our new, state-of-the-art weight room and relaxation area.

Construction Update 01/11/2024

Demolition has been progressing extremely well over the past couple weeks! The demolition of Courts 3,4 and 5 is nearly complete and is one week ahead of schedule. We are hoping to move into the building phase of this portion of the remodel project next week. Our new "hallway" is the only way to access the weight room, cardio room and group fitness rooms. We appreciate everyone's patience and adaptability as we make these changes to continue to provide the best Flagstaff has to offer. Reminder that additional parking is available directly across the street from our West location.

Construction Update 12/27/2023

As many of you are aware, construction has begun in preparation for the demolition of Courts 4 & 5 as a part of our FAC West remodel project. This week or early next week, how to access the weight, cardio and group fitness rooms will change due to the construction of our new strength and recovery spaces. In the next few days, the hallway that leads to the cardio room, weight room and group fitness rooms will be closed. This includes the downstairs hallway that leads from our lobby and the upstairs hallway from our locker rooms and runs adjacent to Courts 3, 4, and 5. To access these areas going forward, a newly constructed "hallway" will be in place that begins from the lobby area adjacent Court 1 and leads to the cardio room. This will be the only way the weight room, cardio room and group fitness rooms can be accessed. The new hallway will be both heated and lighted to ensure a safe and comfortable route to enjoy those areas of our club. Access to the locker rooms, indoor pool and outdoor jacuzzi and patio area will remain unchanged. Thank you for your understanding as we work to improve our club and will continue to provide updates on the remodel project as it progresses.

Remodel Announcement 11/30/2023

After years of meticulous planning, we are thrilled to announce that we have successfully obtained a demolition permit for the remodeling project at FAC West. Courts 3, 4, and 5 are set to undergo a transformative conversion into a cutting-edge two-story strength training area and a dedicated recovery/relaxation room. Demolition is scheduled to begin in early to mid-December, and we will be providing regular updates on the progress through the FAC website and our social media accounts on Instagram and Facebook.

The redesigned space will feature a dynamic layout. The downstairs of the current Court 4 and 5 will house a functional strength training area, complete with a turf section and equipment such as power racks, slam balls, kettlebells, suspension training apparatus, sleds, plyo boxes, jump ropes, and more. Meanwhile, the upstairs of Courts 3, 4, and 5 will be transformed into a comprehensive strength training zone, containing equipment such as dumbbells, barbells, benches, free weights, cable machine, smith machine, squat rack, and other state-of-the-art equipment. The downstairs area of the current Court 3 will be transformed into an amazing space featuring massage chairs and a comfortable sitting area, complete with a welcoming fireplace.

Courts 1 and 2 will remain in the front desk/lobby area of FAC West, ensuring continuity in the facility's layout. Additionally, FAC East will continue to offer four courts along with the Gymnasium courts.

We are eagerly anticipating the start of this exciting project and look forward to sharing our progress with all of you! Stay tuned for updates as we embark on this journey.
