With 93,000 square feet of space to house state-of-the-art fitness equipment, a regulation basketball court, indoor tennis, racquetball, a lap pool, plus more Rosemont Health & Fitness (RHF) truly has something for everyone.
The facility experienced an unfortunate flood in December 2010 causing a lot of damage, but plans were put into place immediately to renovate and update the facility. Mondo rubber flooring – Advance, Sport Impact, Sportflex M, and Ramflex – were installed throughout the fitness center and every application is receiving high praise.
With over 2,600 regular members, and many short-term guest users, the Rosemont Health & Fitness has a steady flow of health-conscious individuals.
In fact, on average, 600 people work out every day. “There are so many fitness options available at RHF, everyone can find something to fit their individual needs,” says Sue DeSimone, director.
Also included in the facility is a 1/5 mile running track on the second level. "Our running track has five lanes and extends the entire length of the club," says DeSimone. "It is used year-round and you can attain a great run, powerwalk or a relaxing stroll." Overlooking the fitness equipment below, track users can avoid any monotony by watching all the other activities taking place.
Some of the all-inclusive features of the club include a 20 meter lap pool, whirlpool, steam/sauna, and group exercise and aquatic classes. A wide variety of cardio, strength training and free weight equipment gives members a number of ways to meet their goals for healthy living.
Rosemont Health & Fitness is celebrating its 20th year anniversary in June 2012 and with so much traffic and use of heavy items, having flooring that stands up to significant wear and tear is a key factor.
"Our flooring representative brought the Mondo options to us, and we've been very pleased with our choices," says DeSimone. “The majority of our free weight area has Mondo rubber flooring with black Ramflex around the perimeter and the red Sport Impact on the interior. The updated flooring has been extremely well received and is one of the first things prospective members notice when checking out the facility.”
DeSimone says Mondo Sportflex M was selected for the tennis court was due to its professional play adaptation. “The players are constantly praising the selection of the new court surface.”
“When Rosemont Health & Fitness’ name changed about two years ago, we painted the facility and changed a number of aspects to the club,” says DeSimone.
“But the look really tied together once we had the Mondo rubber flooring installed.”
As the renovations continue, she says they hope to have more Mondo products in the Rosemont Health & Fitness. “We are finalizing plans to upgrade our front lobby and hope to install Ramflex. Future budget plans may include replacing the running track surface with Mondotrack.”
The new look of the club has impressed people beyond that of a good fitness facility. "I have actually had many of our members compliment the Mondo rubber flooring," says DeSimone. "I have given our flooring rep’s name to business people as they would like to install Mondo products in their own offices or private homes."
The Rosemont Fitness & Health Center is owned and operated by the Village of Rosemont. Not a problem for this fitness club. Don Calemyn, director of finance for the Village of Rosemont, says the revised look to the club has brought a new sense of style to the facility. “The Mondo rubber flooring makes the club look great, with a touch of luxury that is very inviting.”
Image is not the only consideration. “I’ve been advised that the club is constantly being complimented on its cleanliness. This can be attributed to the Mondo rubber flooring in part because maintenance is easy and less costly, which is good news for me in the finance department,” says Calemyn.
