What makes DEFINE's locations special.
DEFINE is a balance of luxury and eco-friendliness built with materials geared towards better health, better living, and being better for the environment.
With four studios, DEFINE is a refreshing addition to the health and wellness community of Houston. DEFINE is a balance of luxury and eco-friendliness built with materials geared towards better health, better living, and being better for the environment.
DEFINE’s founder is an accredited LEED AP, so building a space that was eco-friendly, was just as important as building a space that was luxurious. DEFINE also offers a variety of retail products that continue with the theme of better health and eco-friendliness.
A few o f the eco-friendly building elements at DEFINE include:
Cork Flooring: Cork flooring is environmentally friendly, durable, hypo-allergenic, resistant to microbes, naturally insulating and acoustically sound.
FSC Certified White Oak: The FSC label provides a credible link between responsible production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people and the environment as well as providing ongoing business value.
Texas Limestone: Limestone is a softer type of stone found closer to the Earth’s surface and therefore much easier to mine, requiring less energy and pollution-emitting extraction processes. Since we are using Texas Limestone, there was minimal transport in the stone, which required less fuel and energy for the transportation.
No VOC paint: Most conventional paints contain VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that produce a gas when applied to a surface. The VOCs diminish air quality, and may be detrimental to your health. Today, alternative manufacturing techniques have allowed the development of low- and no-VOC paints that release no, or minimal VOC pollutants, and are virtually odor free.
Formaldehyde Free Lockers: These Hollman lockers are a new finishing line technology that brings beautiful, durable, and formaldehyde-free wood lockers that are safer for your health and the environment.
EcoWise Fitness Products: Latex, PVC, and Chloride free
