  • Footprint of equipment will ensure there is adequate space to get on and off safely

  • Circulation pathways for proper traffic flow

  • Appropriate space allocation per user

  • ADA requirements

  • Local building regulations

  • Power requirements and electrical guidelines

  • Dedicated open spaces for activities such as stretching and/or weightlifting

  • Additional equipment installed in the future

  • Proper ceiling height
