Belladonna Cove's Cratus Gym ~ redesigned and under new management

10 Comments / replies (Who?) - 3 Feedback Posts, 7 Thanks Posts the lid on the tin says - this is Belladonna Cove's Cratus Gym - remodeled, refurbished, and spruced up a bit

Here is the 'overview' shot detailing all the changes. For comparisons sake, the before shot is inset at the bottom of the frame.
Basically - the pool was completely redesigned, and made much bigger - with a new fun addition: a slide. Exercise can be fun, you know!
There are many more lounge chairs around the pool now, and two additional snack machines. Chess tables have been included so you can exercise your mind too!
Inside, please note the new state-of-the-art exercise equipment, flat screen TV, stereo system, rubberized floor, and mirrored ballet barre area.
The bathrooms now feature 2 of everything: showers, changing booths, and toilets. Mirrors over the sinks are larger too!
This is a sleeker, more modern, citified, members-only kinda gym - with a proper reception desk (and computer) that perhaps a business-minded Sim might enjoy running?

The new management felt that since BDC is growing into the upscale and swanky epiSIMter that it is, then the local gym shouldn't look like Rocky's old sweat palace. So...
Indoors, the interior decorators spared no expenses. Now, in this well-appointed and posh atmosphere, while muscles are worked over, the other senses will be too.

I used very little custom content. The CC I included is very common, you probably already have it installed
This lot can be installed CC free - just uncheck everything except the lot file with Clean Installer before installing.
You must have Apartment Life to use this lot.
And, I highly recommend you use: Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix

Be sure to install the script file for Reyn's Stairs if these stairs are new to you!

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price (furnished): N/A

Custom Content Included:
- DeckStair by Numenor @ MTS2

- wallsizemirrordropdown by Windkeeper @ TSR

Yah for making the May theme Cat! I think you are as addicted to getting those stickers as I am. I'm sure your makeover is miles better than EA's. I take it that strange piece of roof on a stick was their idea of something?

I've never really played Belladonna Cove except to open the sisters so I've never seen the gym before. You are right, that is one tiny pool for that huge area. Maybe it was meant as a toddlers wadding pool lol.
