The Benefits Of Residential Gyms For Increased Quality Of Life
Creating a residential gym will help you:
Increase property value: A residential training space makes the building more appealing to live in
Attract tenants: Training space offers higher standard of living and attracts new tenants. SBC, Sweden’s Housing Tenancy Center’s report for 2021 shows that as many as 33 percent of tenants want a gym in their building’s common areas.
Improve quality of life: Having a gym close to home lowers the barrier to physical activity, improving the quality of life for residents
Build community: Training together is an effective way to increase community and create positive relationships between building residents
What to think about when designing a residential gym
Space: Start by determining the available square footage. Are you planning a smaller, more personal gym, or a larger training space? This will determine the type of equipment and design that is optimal.
Users: Consider who your tenants are. A versatile gym that offers possibilities for users who have training habit, and well as beginners, is a good starting point.
Equipment: By choosing durable strength equipment for the residential gym, both maintenance costs and operational disruptions are reduced. Mix strength and cardio equipment to create a versatile residential training area.
Flooring: Choose gym flooring that can withstand tough usage, is easy to care for, can withstand dropped weights and barbells and minimizes noise.
