Who says you have to go to a gym to get exercise? Or even venture outside the house? From virtual training to live streaming, luxury at-home fitness is on the rise.
STATE-OF-THE-ART HOME GYMS
Health-minded homeowners are converting basements and garages, and allocating square footage in their houses to state-of-the-art workout space. And for equipment choices, the options are endless.
Fitness enthusiasts furnish home gyms with NordicTrack equipment, as well as free weights, benches, yoga mats, jumping ropes, and punching bags, among other accessories. Matrix Fitness features a portfolio of gym-quality cardio and strength equipment including ascent trainers and treadmills.
But things have gotten significantly more high-tech—and interactive, too. Cycling devotees work up a sweat on Peloton bikes, which offer live streaming and prerecorded classes, as well as instructions from meditation to toning. And there’s a new game in town, as the at-home bike from SoulCycle was released in March.
