Speed was of the essence with this home gym fit out in Knightsbridge. Relocating to the UK for work, our client wanted to have a gym up and running in their home ahead of their arrival. This was essential given the new quarantine restrictions imposed on people arriving from the US. We had to work extra fast to ensure all their home gym equipment was delivered and installed in double quick time.
As always with basement gyms, access into the space was going to be very important. A lot of gym equipment can be dismantled to assist in delivery. But certain pieces only allow for small components to be removed which does not significantly reduce their overall size. This is particularly the case with treadmills, cross trainers and large cable pulley machines. Careful pre installation measuring is critical in these situations. Clear and unobstructed access is crucial to gym installations.
HOME GYM LAYOUT
The client had already decided which room in the house was going to be used as the gym. As a result we just had to ascertain the gym’s measurements and check on access into the gym. So, we checked everything would fit and could be brought safely into the space, albeit down some narrow staircases. There was plenty of space in the gym itself and scope to add additional pieces in the future, should the client wish to.
The gym had a wooden floor, but as the client had ordered a range of dumbbells – Hammer Strength 2kg – 30kg – there was a need to have some rubber gym flooring to protect it. We recommended Escape’s Flexi-Tuff 12mm gym flooring which is designed for free weight areas. This flooring would not only protect the wooden floor but also help absorb and reduce noise.
Home Gym Equipment Knightsbridge
We gave the client a number of gym equipment options to choose from, including commercial gym equipment from Life Fitness. The client eventually chose Life Fitness’s Integrity series cardio gym equipment. And, to keep everything of a consistent quality they chose pieces from Life Fitness’s signature series, and free weights from Hammer strength. This high end gym equipment selection gave the gym a real professional look.
The list of gym equipment we installed was as follows:
- Integrity Treadmill with Discover SE3 HD console
- Integrity Elliptical Cross Trainer with Discover SE3 HD console
- Signature Series Dual Adjustable Pulley
- Signature Series Adjustable Bench
- Hammer strength dumbbells 2kg – 30kg and horizontal rack
