The new year ushers in a fresh start and new goals, and, for many people, the urge to get moving. It’s no surprise gyms are flooded with new members at the beginning of the year, which can make for a crowded workout experience. When the movement mood strikes, there’s a lot to be said for the luxury of working out in the privacy of your own home. The beautiful gyms and high-tech equipment in these six stunning properties will inspire anyone to start the new year in motion.
Charles Condominium, New York, New York
New York, New York | Kristi Ambrosetti, Sotheby’s International Realty – East Side Manhattan Brokerage
Space is the ultimate luxury in Manhattan, and this 10th floor, 3,150-square-foot condo with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and panoramic skyline views has it in spades. Not only does this property have custom furnishings and elegant décor, but the condominium’s state-of-the-art fitness center features new Technogym and Peloton equipment, ensuring you can make your workout as time-efficient as possible.
Walden House, Edwards, Colorado
Inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden”, this seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home pays homage to the benefits of living in nature. Though it’s no cabin in the woods—the ranch-style masterpiece features locally-sourced copper shingles and Anasazi silver stone—the pond that sits off the back porch offers opportunity for activity, from fishing to ice skating. And for more physical activity, there’s a separate cabana gym encased in glass for added serenity. Guests can also get in their exercise by skiing—both Beaver Creek and Vail Villages are nearby for peak powder.
Palm Island Estate, Miami Beach, Florida
Florida’s gated Palm Island features tennis and basketball courts, but this bright and airy gym—equipped with weights and a stationary bike—will inspire you to exercise at home. The 14,000-square-foot estate’s detached fitness room is complete with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of lush greenery and the surrounding waterfront, as well as the beautiful outdoor pool. Take a dip to cool down after an intense workout, or retreat to the home theater to watch a film while you recover.
A Sporting Escape, Las Vegas, Nevada
Spanish Trail Golf & Country Club, the gated community only 10 minutes from the glitz and glamor of the Las Vegas Strip, is an ideal location for anyone with an active lifestyle. Featuring a championship golf course, tennis courts, and a fitness center, there are lots of ways to get moving at this 20,000-square-foot home. With timeless architecture, a 10-car motor court, gourmet kitchen, outdoor pool, wine cellar, and a gym with spiral staircase, you’ll feel inspired whether you’re dining under the stars or completing a circuit.
A Coral Gables Retreat, Florida
No matter how early the hour, this neoclassical Florida villa guarantees your workouts will be bright. Arched doorways and pristine white walls lend presence to the home’s gym, while 200 feet of seawall and a 140-foot dock provide access to the Gables Estates waterways. Designed by architect Ramon Pacheco, this home embraces grandeur at every turn, offering classic Florida views whether you’re on the move or on the terrace.
When motivation finds you, look to a well-designed gym to keep you energized. A home fitness center frees you to naturally integrate your workout routine into your lifestyle, while providing space for guests to stay active away from home. These six fantastic properties are prime examples of how a gym can be the perfect complement to your goals for the new year.
