Modeled after the famed David Barton Gym with locations in Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Chicago and Las Vegas, the state-of-the-art ENVY Residences fitness facility will fuse form and function, art and design and music and theatrics to create a fitness experience unlike anywhere else.

ENVY Residences is the first condominium development in Scottsdale to formalize a strategic partnership with a celebrity fitness trainer, adding to its super-prime offering.

The hallmark of David Barton gyms is the club-like experience it offers its members. From special lighting that gives gym goers a bronzed, chiseled glow to the latest state of the art fitness equipment, edgy group classes and heart-pumping music, the fitness center at ENVY Residences will be at the epicenter of the property offering residents a private fitness sanctuary with superior amenities.

“An exclusive fitness experience is a priority for the ENVY buyer and the ultra-luxe David Barton Gym was the perfect model for our high-end fitness center,” said Rob Lyles, partner with Deco Communities, the developer of ENVY Residences.

“ENVY buyers are looking for a boutique-style gym experience that provides highly-individualized classes, premium equipment and an emphasis on personal training in a dynamic and social environment,” he said.

“We are excited to partner with a trainer that has the reputation, knowledge and enthusiasm of Lucas James and to be able to provide our discerning buyers with Lucas’ in-demand fitness training and wellness advisory services, on-site.”

Recently named Best Fitness Trainer by Arizona Foothills Magazine and featured in InTouch, US Weekly and on Bravo, Lucas James is an award-winning fitness trainer and Arizona’s only accredited luxury healthy lifestyle advisor that focuses on fitness, nutrition and health.

Lucas James is a “Five Star” rated celebrity personal trainer and has been nationally recognized in the health and fitness industry over the last 19 years. James celebrity clientele includes professional athletes, Hollywood elite, TV stars and Fortune 500 business executives in Arizona and across the US.

“This unique gym will be modernized with cutting edge equipment and training modalities specifically designed around the needs of the ENVY resident,” said Lucas James. “Personal health and fitness is a priority for the Scottsdale market and the ENVY consumer and creating a gym experience that is innovative, challenging, social and fun will make it a key amenity for the property,” he said.

Standing as the only residential tower in Old Town Scottsdale’s designated Entertainment District, Envy’s 89 limited edition residences will be offered in a phased rollout. There are 10 richly appointed floor plans including 8 penthouse designs. The units will range from 800 to over 2,400 square feet with every luxury comfort and convenience considered.
