The new family life center at Warren Baptist Church completes Phase II of the long-range master plan previously developed by Studio 3 Design Group for the growing congregation in Augusta. The family life center consists of a two-level, multi-purpose gymnasium with a regulation-sized basketball court and elevated running track, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, aerobics room, game room TV room, meeting room, and locker spaces. The focal point of the family life center, the multi-purpose gymnasium, located on the second floor of the facility, consists of a large exposed truss structure with indirect lighting and vibrant finishes. Large expanses of glass at each end of the basketball court allow natural light to penetrate the space. The fitness center, located on the ground floor, adjacent to the men's and women's locker rooms, has abundant space for weight training equipment. A tiered cardio training area allows church members to view their choice of television monitors while working out.
