New Sport and Fitness Complex in Yerevan

This October administrative district Kanaker-Zeytun of Yerevan will have its own Sport and Fitness complex called Insport. It is located at 8/3 Paruyr Sevak Street in the neighborhood of multi-apartment residential buildings, built within the frame of the project “Affordable housing for young scientists and members of creative unions” by the NGO "Association of YSU Graduates".

More and more people today attend gyms, go swimming to strengthen or restore their health. And today it is necessary that every urban community is rich in sport schools and gyms. “There was no health improving sport complex in Zeytun. After the opening of Insport people of this area will be able to go swimming and do physical workout in their own area. Specifically, this area was chosen because the new complex should serve as a place for proper and healthy leisure,” - said David Hayrapetyan, the director of Insport.

The total area of the sports complex Insport is 6400 square meters. It has two buildings. The first one is for the administration, gym and dressing rooms. The second one is a one-story building of the same height where the swimming pool will be located. It will fit the Olympic standards – 25 meters in length and 16 meters in width. The swimming pool will be equipped with a modern four-stage filtration system, which excludes chlorination of water. The first building has four floors. In the basement floor there will be two gyms for practicing power sports. There will be also Finnish and oriental saunas. The cardio gym will be on the second floor. There will also be a spa salon for massage and rehabilitation and spa and salt treatments. On the third floor there will be a cabinet for practicing yoga (including antigravity yoga), a children's playroom and a hall for teamwork.

An energy-saving solar water heating system with a capacity of 150 KW will be installed on the roof of the building.

The complex will operate two parking lots - ground and underground, designed for parking 30 cars. The building structure will guarantee 9 points of earthquake-resistance. The construction work was done by ADA Tech construction company.

The complex will be able to serve 120 visitors per hour. The total cost of the complex is 1.72 billion drams (about $ 3.6 million.). At present the interior finishing works are being carried out.
