Does Edge Fitness have a pool?
Ready to join this splash party?
Pools aren't just for floating on inflatable unicorns. From power-packed aqua workouts to chill "me-time" sessions, pools have got it all. And guess what? You're among the countless folks who've clocked the awesomeness of diving in, especially when the fitness mood strikes.
Here's a real-life combo you'll only get at gyms with pools:
- Relaxation: Had a tough workout? Jump in and let the water do its magic.
- Swim Training: Whether you're channeling your inner Michael Phelps or just swimming off last night's pizza.
- Pure aqua fun: Pools are kiddo and grown-up playgrounds. Splash wars, anyone?
Here at gymscompared.com, we've rounded up the best pool hangouts around. Whatever floats your boat (or floatie), we've got the exclusive info. Dive in with us!
What about the Edge?
Nope. There are no pools at Edge Fitness gyms.
We checked every single of their 42 club websites, and POOL isn't mentioned on them! We also poked through the Facebook and Instagram pages, along with chatting with their customer care team. Nope, no pool at Edge Fitness.
Why doesn't the Edge have pools?
That's a good question. Sometimes we'll have some insider info, or a tip from employees or executives at a gym we're tracking. None of that here. So, we'll lean on our experience in the industry. Why doesn't Edge have pools? Probably:
- It would drive up membership costs. So many different things need to happen to install and maintain a pool properly. We're talking about cleaning, chemicals, and certifying that all is properly running correctly. That requires an enormous initial (and ongoing!) cost—that will have to be paid by members. That's not gonna fly with their existing monthly membership costs.
- There (probably) isn't alot of space, or enough space, at Edge locations. Not just for the actual pool, but for maintenance areas storing chemicals, cleaners and more. Also, see below for how they fill their gyms.
- Pools aren't a primary focus for Edge. We see their clubs at roughly around 40,000 square feet in size, with great amenities such as:
- Functional training (turf) areas
- Cardio/strength sections
- Kids clubs
- Women's only areas
- Even protein shake bars!
You can see how Edge gyms enhance their members' experience with so many other different options—just not with a pool.
Will have pools in the future?
It's possible. While we believe adding or building a pool into existing gyms simply won't work because of the enormous cost—we do see a path to Edge gyms with pools only if it's at a brand new location.
And guess what: Edge is growing, adding over 10 new gyms in the past 3 years. New locations mean new opportunities, and specifically for larger gym chains, introduction of:
- Functional turf areas
- Olympic weight lifting platforms
- New-style workout machines (hip thrusters/curved treadmills)
Could we add pools to the above list for Edge? Very possible, in our opinion. They are such a modern, fun, up-to-date gym chain, that is really in-tune with their members. The already existing amenity list is gigantic. They are growing fast!
All great reasons for possibly adding a pool.
If this gym chain is on your list to join, take advantage of their other amenities, and great pricing.
