Located across from Key Arena at the Seattle Center, owners of Accelerate requested that their new gym space promote their philosophy of team training while reflecting the intensity of the workouts. Bold graphics and the Accelerate colors of black and yellow mix with charred ‘yakisugi’ siding throughout the spaces. At reception, a custom desk greets athletes and a steel framed upholstered bench provides a place to socialize before and after classes. The workout space is dominated by an 80 foot long turf strip ideal for stretching, sprints and sled pushes during training classes. Wall to wall mirrors reflect the natural light deep into the workout space while athletes keep an eye on their form and technique.
