Case Study

Retro Fitness Lacey, Forked River, NJ

Sq. Ft.
Health Club
Mezzanine for Gym



Retro Fitness – Lacey Township is a brand new state of the art facility that recently joined the ranks of the successful exercise franchise. This location features a cardio movie theater, retro blends juice bar, top notch equipment, and instructors, along with everything else you would expect from a Retro Fitness location.

To make room for all of these features, they needed to create additional space within the building. A mezzanine was a good solution, but they needed to make sure the mezzanine would be designed to meld with the plans for the new location.

To help, they contacted The Mezzanine Company, as we had prior experience providing mezzanines for other Retro Fitness locations.


Working closing with the architect for the project, we provided a design for a mezzanine to serve as a cardio deck for them. The mezzanine was designed with two IBC regulation staircases; one at both ends of the “L” shaped deck. Also, some components of the mezzanine would be specially painted Retro Fitness red to match the overall look and feel of the location.

Because the mezzanine was custom designed to fit into the new location, some required changes had to be made throughout the process. To reduce the load on the floor, base plate sizes had to be increased. And then, since the new base plate sizes would interfere with the build out around them, we worked with Retro Fitness to recess the base plates into the floor. Throughout the process, we coordinated with all parties to work through all of the obstacles.

As the time to deliver and install the mezzanine came closer, we were informed of some delays in construction. We worked closely with Retro Fitness, the general contractor, and our installers (who were coming from out of state) to move back the installation start-up date to ensure that the site could be cleaned up in time so that it was ready for the installers to work the day they arrived.

Once we were cleared to deliver and install, our installers worked quickly and efficiently and soon Retro Fitness’ new 2,700 square foot cardio deck was finished.

What Our Customers Say...

I have been extremely satisfied with the personal service received from The Mezzanine Company; they treat you like family. The accuracy of the order and the dates of delivery were right on and the installers were very accommodating and friendly. Everyone has been really helpful and easy to work with, especially being in the crunch for product that I was in. They will be my first call and my recommendation to anyone looking for the services they provide.
