Luxury home gym with treadmill and free weights with mirrors on wall and wood floors

An exercise space or studio at home can vary tremendously – from opulent gyms with resistance machines, racks of dumbbells and a fleet of cardio machines (treadmills, elliptical trainers, exercise bikes, etc.) to a bare space with an exercise mat. Click here for treadmills under $1,000 and click here for elliptical trainers under $1,000.

I’ve been going to a commercial gym since I was 15 years old.  During that time I’ve had stints where I work out at home doing yoga and work out programs such as P90X.  Regardless how often I attempt a fitness regimen at home, I prefer a gym… but then that may because I don’t have a fully outfitted home gym.

How you design your exercise space and the equipment you choose to buy depends on your fitness regimen.  For people into bodyweight workouts such as yoga, a home gym is super simple – just dedicate some space to it.  For runners who only need a treadmill, again it’s not that hard to convert a spare bedroom or some basement space into an exercise space.

But, if you’re like me who likes using all kinds of weightlifting machines plus a variety of cardio machines, a home gym is an indulgence.

It’s not just equipment you need – there’s also extras.

Things to remember:

  • Mirrors
  • Proper flooring
  • Natural light
  • A television

Flooring is a big consideration because you can damage tile, wood and laminate quickly.  The best remedy is to invest in proper mats you place under each piece of equipment as well as the weightlifting area.  Even gently dropping a 100 lb. dumbbell can do some serious damage.

Below is our gallery of a wide variety of home gyms in a variety of spaces – some in the basement, some in a designated exercise room and others integrated into television rooms (which makes sense).

    Some of the gym are great for a home but a few are over the top. The one with the open concept is not very practical. A great view off of the workout area adds to the overall atmosphere
