BRIEF We were asked to consult on a small home gym design project in Hampstead. As cardiovascular conditioning and weight training were the preferred training modalities of the client we were tasked with finding streamlined equipment with small footprints that would fit into a small, narrow and height-restricted room. The gym was planned for a converted garage space and access to the area was down a narrow winding staircase.
CONCEPT After careful measurement both of the access to the space and the area itself we advised the client to choose Technogym’s personal line home gym equipment due to its sleek design, small footprints, ease of use and large console display with full multimedia experience. A space saving dumbbell solution combined with a multi adjustable bench, swiss ball and portable mat ensured strength and functional exercise training could be performed.
FINAL DESIGN The final design and positioning of the gym equipment created plenty of space in a confined area. Having integrated TV’s on both pieces of cardio equipment meant the machines could be moved as far as possible to one end of the gym thereby creating more space for free weight training and flexibility work. A large mirror was also fitted so users could check their technique on free weight exercises.
THE GYM This home gym is compact but perfectly formed and shows what can be achieved even in the smallest of spaces.
