Dinesh Nihalchand, CEO and Founder of Palace Studios said, “The fitness industry has been undergoing dramatic shifts in recent years. Fitness professionals and their clients are seemingly moving away from the traditional big-box gym and membership model, and expecting more flexible, premium, hassle-free, on-demand workout spaces to achieve fitness goals. Covid 19 has accelerated the integration of where people live, work, and exercise. By merging the digital with the physical, Palace Studios provides a real estate solution balancing sustainability, flexibility and privacy to landlords who continue to witness increasing office vacancy rates because of the ongoing pandemic. Palace Studios goes beyond offering a private training space to fitness practitioners, it revolutionizes the way how built spaces can be changed for the better.” Moving forward, Palace Studios mission is to team up with landlords in Hong Kong to uplift the value of their real estate by transforming underutilized physical spaces within their buildings into high-end, private fitness studios, and to become an innovative and sustainable real estate solution that benefits both landlords and end consumers in the long run.
Highly committed to developing sustainable spaces and providing a safe and clean environment within its facilities, Palace Studios collaborates closely with its partners in the areas including overall interior design, selection of construction materials as well as in- studio amenities. Professional air circulation system and integrated indoor air quality (IAQ) monitoring system are installed to ensure improved air quality within the built environment, flooring is zero volatile organic compounds (VOC) material based made from recycled rubber from a sneaker insole company, sustainable and VOC free organic eicó paint is applied in all studios, and local handmade organic skincare from bathe to basics can also be found in all showers. Palace Studios is determined to address concerns surrounding safety, sustainability and future viability of the personalised fitness industry.
