Online facility planning tool

Did a search and didn't see anyone else mentioning this yet, if I missed it, I'm sure some other members with plans to open a facility or new affiliates could really make use of this tool:
http://truefitness.icovia.com/ WFS
This tool allows you to plot out the size of your facility, place equipment around in different spots, check out how many people might fit in your space, see how many rowers might fit against your walls etc. I'm having a blast checking out different configurations as well as realizing I might be able to fit more clients in my future space than I had originally thought.
In about 15 minutes I could configure my square footage with icons to scale for the equipment needed to run Fight Gone Bad and see how many clients I might be able to run through this WOD in my future space. Pretty cool! I found a link to this tool on www.berrysbarbell.com wfs, I think he's a member here so CHEERS to him for having this on his store! I might have to buy something from him since he probably just saved me a couple days of walking around my space with a tape measure and burning through a couple erasers and notebooks.

Re: Online facility planning tool

Paul,
Glad you liked, and shared, the planning tool we post on our site.
Having been in the business for 25 years, I've measured many a
facility, transfered those measurements to graph paper, and had
to cut (with scissors) and paste (with glue) scale sized equipment icons
to determine fit and feel. Took forever.
We will be adding another planning tool with more features in the
near future.
Best wishes with your facility.

Frank,

All that that I noticed that needed to be added was a lifting platform. Having that in there would be awesome.

Mark,
For the platforms, go to the generic tab, select patio then patio furniture and
use the occassional table icon with the dimensions you need for your platform.
Should work just fine.
