From Yoga To Barre | 5 Inspiring Spaces For All Your At-Home Workouts
August 01, 2021 - Dubai
The past year has called for adaptation, and we’ve seen the ripple effects in how and where we do our fitness routines. The home gym or workout area is now just as ubiquitous as the home office, and for good reason.
The ability to cater your workout space to your own fitness needs—whether your practice includes yoga, online bootcamps, or elliptical training—allows for a better work-life balance, leading to more flexibility in your day. These five properties offer an inspiring glimpse into how different fitness activities can take place right at home.
A Yoga Deck in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
This modern, custom-built home in Dubai emanates serenity, and not just because of its cool marble flooring and soft gray detailing. The villa, which features four floors of stylish living, also boasts its own yoga deck—a calm space that supports and encourages a daily yoga routine. Shades of dove, teal, and verdant green contribute to the tranquil atmosphere, while the surrounding swimming pool and distant city views make the deck a truly one-of-a-kind space. The property also has its own gym, fully-equipped with a boxing bag, weight set, and other fitness equipment.
A Skateboard Ramp in Water Mill, New York
Not every homeowner can say that they have their own skateboard ramp, but this home in Water Mill, New York, allows its residents that unique privilege. Sharing a space with a rock climbing wall, the skateboard half-pipe comes complete with its own graffiti art and grind rail. The spacious estate in the Hamptons is outfitted with a variety of amenities—from tennis courts to a bowling alley to squash and racquetball courts—and, with its 11 bedrooms, there’s ample room for both friends and family to partake in the fun.
A Yoga Sanctuary on the Ionian Islands, Greece
Set amidst the captivating Mediterranean vistas of Corfu, this property is a truly enchanting space. Named “Magna Grecia,” the two homes and gatehouse offer an elegant setting for both relaxing and working out. Start your day with morning yoga on a deck that overlooks the water before taking a dip in the pool or relaxing your muscles in the steam room, sauna, or massage room. Fitness enthusiasts will enjoy the home’s fully equipped gym—and any overexertion can be balanced out by indulging at Magna Grecia’s cognac bar in the evening.
Yoga With a View in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands
This pre-designed home, set right on the beach, already exudes ultimate luxury and relaxation, but it’s the yoga deck overlooking the ocean that will really appeal to the dedicated practitioner. Encircling a gas fire pit and surrounded by a tranquil water feature, the dedicated yoga and meditation space is set just off of the covered living area complete with a summer kitchen and bar. The home has been envisioned as a seamless inside/outside retreat, exemplified by the floor-to-ceiling glass windows, ample natural light, and expansive covered deck.
A Fully Equipped Gym in Mallorca, Spain
With its sleek, contemporary design and central location near both the beach and the bustling restaurant scene in Santa Ponsa, this newly built apartment building will appeal to the cosmopolitan homeowner looking for a landing pad in trendy Mallorca. Available apartments range from one bedroom to four bedrooms in size, and all owners will have the benefit of using the swimming pool and community gym. Designed with different fitness routines in mind, the gym features a variety of equipment including a weight set, treadmills, and stationary bikes.
While fitness centers around the world have slowly begun to open back up again, the home workout space is here to stay. Whether you’re an avid yogi or an aspiring skateboarder, these properties prove that the home can be a space for work, play, and staying active.
