After years traveling the globe and working in the fitness industry, Stephen and Antonia Anderson wanted to design a fitness facility that was as beautiful as it was functional. The duo eventually realized this dream, opening The Body Architect within a lofty building with wooden beams, exposed brick walls, and wall-to-wall windows that proffer spectacular views of Portland and Mount Washington. In front of these windows, rows of professional Precor and Cybex machines bustle amid the clang of strength and TRX suspension training equipment. Meanwhile, up on the roof deck, certified instructors conduct a variety of fitness classes beneath the sun, including boot camps, yoga, and personal-training sessions. Additionally, an onsite massage therapist stands by to help untangle muscles or knotted gym socks before or after members unwind in serene spa-inspired showers.
