Active Francuska Gym in Katowice is a place that stands out from other fitness facilities not only because of its modern equipment and professional trainers, but also thanks to its unique location overlooking a picturesque forest. In an interview with Tomasz Rogalski, the experienced manager of Active Park Fitness, we learn how the proximity to nature affects the experience of gym users, the benefits of training in such an environment, and the plans for the development of this unique gym. We invite you to read an interview that reveals the behind-the-scenes operation of Active Francuska and presents what makes this place so special.

Editorial: Active Francuska in Katowice is a gym that is very popular. What sets your offerings apart from other such facilities?

Tomasz Rogalski: Active Francuska stands out for its unique combination of the advantages of an urban location and proximity to nature. Our gym offers a view of a scenic forest, which creates a unique environment for training. Studies show that boutique gyms like ours are gaining popularity due to a more personalized and intimate atmosphere compared to commercial chain facilities. Customers appreciate the personalized approach we are able to provide due to the smaller scale of our operations. We offer more than a standard gym visit – we offer an inspiring experience that supports clients in achieving their health and fitness goals.

You promote your facility as a place with “a view of a sea of trees.” Can you talk more about this unique trait and the impact of the environment on the customer experience?

The term “gym overlooking a sea of trees” refers directly to the surrounding forest and greenery. When you train with us, thanks to the large glass spaces, you can directly admire the forest stretching outside the windows, which is beautiful and metaphysical both in summer, when the trees are juicy green and full of life, and in winter, when they are covered with white snow, creating a magical, peaceful atmosphere. This view makes training not only a physical effort, but also an experience close to nature, which adds energy and motivation to exercise. The view of trees and nature has a relaxing effect on the mind and body. Clients can feel calm and relaxed during their workout, which promotes greater focus and motivation. We also offer outdoor training in the immediate area. Being surrounded by nature contributes to better mental well-being, so our gym provides customers not only with physical benefits, but also with positive experiences that can benefit their health and well-being.
