(New York, NY) — When it’s time to hit the gym, it’s about getting down and dirty. However, for some, breaking a sweat has become a luxurious experience. Residential gym designs are getting a complete makeover and evolving the gym experience to one of extravagance.
One of the men behind the movement is Jay Wright, CEO, and founder of The Wright Fit, a gym design and management consultancy. The Wright Fit has developed many of the ritzy gyms in high-end NYC residential buildings.
Time and proximity can be barriers to working out, so by designing residential gyms with a special element of allure, people are being drawn to their workouts. Check out 12 of the hottest heart-pumping gyms below.
