BACKGROUND AND BRIEF
We were contacted to design the layout for a home gym in Little Venice and to supply a range of high end home gym equipment. The client had created a large basement space beneath their existing property and planned to use the new space for extra living space and as a home gym.
GYM DESIGN AND LAYOUT
The client had a good idea of the types of high end gym equipment they required which made selecting the right home gym equipment considerably easier. However, despite having this advanced information we always delve deeper into our clients’ training regimen to ensure we provide them with the correct gym equipment pieces to help them with their workout programmes.
Once we had the architect’s drawings and the client had chosen the high end gym equipment they required we were able to position all the equipment in our drawing and send on to the client for approval. As a general rule we tend to orientate the cardio equipment towards the TV if there is one, or facing towards a window. Once we have finalised the cardio equipment positions we then start positioning the resistance and strength equipment, and also earmark a specific area for stretch mats and any other smaller pieces of equipment such as medicine balls, Swiss balls or kettlebells. Ideally, these smaller items should be stored on a purpose built storage rack which ensures the gym can be kept tidy, and out of harms way when not in use.
Due to the increasing popularity of suspension training in recent years the client wanted to have a TRX in the gym, suspended from the ceiling. Care was taken to ensure that his was positioned in the right place so as not to clash with other equipment in the room when in use.
