Olympia Gym, Now Avenue Fitness

Naga City - Avenue Plaza Hotel upgrades its Olympia Gym to Avenue Fitness. Always the first of its kind from the first premiere lifestyle center in Magsaysay Avenue. Where fitness isn't just muscles and more than being healthy, but having fun as an important value in the equation.

Got lucky to have a sneak peak in this beautiful gym. To begin with, pastel colors are in every corner of the gym. Industrial type of design but trendy and worthy of a selfie and not just having a background of a makeshift gym like what others do. Avenue Fitness still has this minimalist type of design in my point of view. Sweating it all out in a gym is beauty in itself. You will not only feel good and your gym as your environment contributes a lot to your overall state of balance after every workout. 

Follow the lines
Avenue Fitness is a three level gym, with lockers, sauna, shower rooms and including the infinity pool.
This time, there are lots of motivational lines and quotes on the wall.
With topnotch and upgraded gym facility. 
"Instagrammable" backgrounds are all around. 

Introducing the Synrgy360, the first of its kind in Naga City. Where you and your friends can definitely enjoy the facility altogether. 


Life Fitness pioneered the SYNRGY360 concept to create transformational and inspiring fitness experiences for a diverse audience of exercisers. It is ideal for dynamic small group training, one-on-one personal training, and for individual exercisers.

Each unit is modular, which means that a facility has nearly limitless options of how to build the optimal solution for its exercisers. The groundbreaking concept provides opportunities to offer exciting small group training to anyone in your facility.
