“11 stunning home gym’s ” and we could not be more proud!
Biggest trend for 2021 is creating an incredible home gym
and here is ours….
Searches for home gyms on the internet have risen dramatically, not only are people looking for ways to keep their exercise regimes going, but now, with winter in tow and the uncertainty of when gyms will actually reopen, we are all finding a way to actually fit exercise equipment seamlessly into our interiors or even furniture to double up and become suitable for performing push-ups, yoga or other exercises.
As Lotte Brouwer, from Livingetc, points out
“Aside from being the best option for your fitness – your home gym will never close, and it will be tailored entirely to you – it can also relieve stress, improve your mood, help promote restful sleep, and do wonders for your mental health. The perfect antidote to a stressful and chaotic day of juggling caring for your children, working full time and perhaps even home-schooling is treating yourself to a space in which you can shut off, unwind and work up a sweat.
Creating your own Home Gym
We had a very tough decision to make at the beginning of the last lock down. To loose or not to loose, a spare bedroom? However now, we could not be happier with our decision to create an urban style home gym in our Grade II listed Victorian home. It was a really fun project, one we have not done many times before.The gym was inspired by an inner-city style gym to make you want to work out, but aesthetically pleasing to the eye too.
In order to give it this urban feel, we exposed one of the walls and brought it back to its original brick form and added a huge mirror on the other side to reflect this feature. We then used state of the art, luxury wooden equipment that was in keeping with our period home and its features. All of it in natural materials, such as wood and leather. This created a warm and calming ambience.
We have received lots of recognition for our home gym, through social media and many reposts of it but just this week we also got featured in Livingetc , for top 11 gyms … please click on the link below. https://www.livingetc.com/home-gym-ideas
