Park Towers in Uptown 'wows' with $16M redo

Feb 10, 2017

HOUSTON – Park Towers, a 545,242-sf two-building office complex in the Uptown area, has completed its $16 million renovation.

The office building is located at Post Oak Blvd. and I-610.
Among other things, its sixth-floor parking garage was converted into a 4,000-sf fitness center and a 3,000-sf conference center.

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to an article in JLL Realviews , "State-of-the-art office gyms, locker rooms and lunchtime fitness classes are becoming key amenities for helping attract and retain workers—particularly the fitness-focused Millennial generation. Landlords also recognize that onsite fitness amenities can differentiate a property in a competitive market, bring in the tenants and increase the property price when it’s time to sell." 

Marathon Fitness wants to take this time to congratulate Park Towers, they have done a fantastic job at providing a variety of fitness options in a beautifully updated and modern space.

HIIT Workouts-Why they work
HIIT Workouts-Why they work
Kim Benz - Tuesday, January 24, 2017

You may have heard about HIIT workouts, or high intensity interval training. You may have even tried a few out. They are proven strategies for burning fat, improving endurance and health and increasing lean muscle. It is a training technique that provides bursts of high levels of exercise followed by short recovery periods. Typically the short work intervals are at a 70-90 percent max heart rate, while the recovery periods are at a 60-65 percent max heart rate. “A high-intensity workout increases the body’s need for oxygen during the effort and creates an oxygen shortage, causing your body to ask for more oxygen during recovery,” says Eric Salvador, NASM, NSCA, head instructor at The Fhitting Room in New York City. “This afterburn effect is referred to as Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) and is the reason why intense exercise will help burn more fat and calories than regular aerobic and steady-state workouts."
