Leisure Sports, an active lifestyle business, designs, develops, owns and manages distinctive, high-end fitness resorts and hotels that offer world-class service, contemporary facilities, and innovative sports and fitness programs. Their Club Sports website was in dire need of improvement to meet the needs of its discriminating clientele.

Project6 Design and the Leisure Sports team tackled multiple design and development challenges, including refining outdated navigation and branding, developing multiple types of content editors, updating an outdated and complex custom fitness scheduling tool, adding internal promotions, and more. On top of all the complexities of the project, the website is also responsive – so it naturally fits every possible display size. From large desktop monitors to the smallest phone, images are scaled and navigation is intuitive on all devices. The result is a single Drupal-driven website that serves all seven location websites and allows easy access to multiple editors to quickly make changes.

Drupal is an open source content management platform powering millions of websites and applications. It is built, used, and supported by an active and diverse community of people around the world and is used by some of the biggest sites on the Web, like The Economist, Examiner.com and The White House. Drupal is a cutting-edge platform that supports the latest technologies that the Web has to offer. The Drupal project’s principles encourage modularity, shared standards, collaboration, and ease of use.

“Project6 rocked our web world!” said Carrie Gilbert, Web Content Specialist for Leisure Sports, Inc. “They took the time to listen to our team’s many (sometimes conflicting) opinions and concerns, and created something that impressed us all. They really took our websites to a whole new level. And these websites were no walk in the park! I was really impressed with the Project6 team. Our fabulous new websites really are their own testimonials. I would highly recommend Project6 for their excellent work, service, and integrity.”
