Introducing YouEscape Pinball & Retro Arcade Room

Look, we might be biased, but we’ve felt like we might be the coolest gym around for a while now. Well, our latest club transformation may have just cemented it: the YouEscape Pinball + Arcade Room now at Oakland Park!

Enjoy Classic Arcade Games at the Gym

Yeah, we totally went for it; an arcade room is a first of its kind in the fitness industry. This customized space is filled with classic favorite pinball machine games such as Iron Maiden, Medieval Madness and Star Wars coupled with classic arcade games like Pacman, Frogger and Galaga. (#NailedIt)

The room is tied together with a vibrant custom art mural by local south Florida artist, Ivan Rogue, as well as cozy seating areas, giving members a nostalgic outlet to relax before or after a workout – or let’s be honest, maybe for an entire rest day of no workouts.

For now, the first YouEscape room is only at our Oakland Park location- but there may be more in the future! With that said, for a limited time, EVERYONE can use the YouEscape room, regardless of membership type. If you’re ever in the area, be sure to come check it out! The space was created for adults (see: big kids) who want to escape the stress of their everyday busy lives.

“The evolution of our brand has always meant to creating an environment where our members feel welcomed and allow them to escape the stress of their everyday lives,” said our founder and CEO, Rick Berks. “From the moment they step inside, we want our members to enjoy time at the gym and feel rejuvenated in a fun, fresh way. The new YouEscape room allows members to do just that.”

Did You Know? Pinball Can Reduce Stress

We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again. Sure, we care about your physical health and wellness – but we care just as much about the rest of you too. Pinball machines are not only engaging and fun, but even the act of playing is a simple, calming way to enjoy yourself and add a bit of extra joy to days that tend to get stressful, mundane and sometimes overwhelming.

We’re not saying that playing pinball and arcade games will change your entire mental well-being. But we’re also not not saying that…

Make sure to try it out at Youfit Oakland Park today and save the date for our official grand opening kick off party on Monday, November 19! All guests are welcome to join the fun and escape to simpler, more fun times.
