Get fit and fabulous in the comfort and convenience of home — your first or your second. Need inspiration? These five spectacular in-house gyms mean no more commutes, no more crowds, and of course, no more excuses to skip a workout.
Palm Beach, Florida
The former home of model Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods’ ex-wife, sports an impressive array of workout machines and equipment. Rivaling all professional gyms, this covetable space features a mirrored wall, built-in sound system, and unique underwater window. (Check out the uber-cool view of the pool.)
The yard also sports a half basketball court and, not surprisingly, a putting green. And post-workout, grab your vintage-of-choice from the 800-bottle wine cellar; enjoy it on the rooftop terrace offering panoramic ocean views.

A Walden-Inspired Workout
The epitome of living in natural surroundings, this one-of-a-kind property was inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s book Walden. So, it’s not surprising that the glass-encased cabana-gym provides an idyllic escape for daily workouts.
A contemporary pool perfectly complements the home’s overall aesthetic. There’s also a pond—another nod to Thoreau—which accommodates a myriad of outdoor activities, from fishing to ice skating.
Yet the real fitness pièce de résistance is a nine-mile network of private and semi-private trails. With Gold Dust Peak in the backdrop and lush valleys below, there’s no more picturesque setting in the mountains.

An Olympic-quality gym is just one of the staggering number of amenities in this contemporary stunner. Along with equipment to max-out every muscle, expansive windows look out to the breathtaking natural beauty of Buffalo Bayou.
Dramatic outside lighting provides the ideal environ for an after-dark swim in the lap-length pool. (Especially recommended during scorching Texas summers.) Or walk the property’s 8.7 acres, which includes a 5.5-acre lake with an island wetland reserve.

Coral Gables, Florida
It’s fitness with a European flair. The fully-outfitted gym in this palatial Italian Neoclassical-style villa has a full bath. French doors open up to a pillared terrace and marble hot tub.
An adjacent pool has waterfront views and 140-foot dock. Kick back after a workout or swim with a glass of wine. The custom wood cellar holds 600 bottles.

High Altitude, High Intensity
As if we needed another reason to love Aspen. This breathtaking manse on prestigious Red Mountain takes luxe to the next level.
Like all decked-out home gyms, this one doesn’t miss a beat. Think stationary bike, elliptical machine, free weights, and medicine balls. But that’s just the start of a mind-blowing array of workout opportunities.
For water exercise, there’s an indoor 20 meter pool. Or for outdoor enthusiasts, hike the three-acre grounds. And if the views of nearby Independence Pass entice, the area’s best skiing is just a short drive away.
Your reward for all your efforts? A sauna and private massage room await.
