Dream Homes – Home Gyms

We've chosen seven listings with home gyms. Perfect for a more healthy 2020!

Posted: November 21, 2019

As we reach the end of another year, the phrase ‘new year, new you’ starts to appear. Everywhere. It’s a phrase so well used it’s become a cliché. The sentiments behind it though are good. Using the start of a new year to kickstart measures to improve your own health and wellbeing. We often make New Year’s resolutions; frequently they involve getting fit. Customarily a gym membership follows, only to be cancelled a month or so later.

This year, why not break this cycle? This year invest in a home gym instead. Spare rooms, garage conversions or annexes can all lend themselves to home gyms. By investing in dumbbells or more expensive freestanding equipment, you can motivate yourself to continue your exercise regime as you literally pass your gym every day.

The owners of these seven properties have all converted rooms into home gyms, perfect if you’re in the market for a home with space for your own exercise room. Look through, find your dream home and start planning your workout routine!
