VWB Blog 2 years ago 9

When the COVID-19 pandemic first began and experts were not entirely sure how it would spread, one of the first public establishments forced to shut down were public gyms. Many health authorities classified gyms as non-essential businesses, which is why they had to close their doors for a few months. Health buffs who loved going to the gym were suddenly compelled to find efficient ways to work out from the comfort of their homes.

The best way to avoid this inconvenience is by ensuring that our home is optimal for physical activity. In the time of COVID-19, your home needs to be a one-stop shop. It needs to be a place of rest. Still, also you need your home to be able to work, for your kids to study, and for every member of the family to have functional spaces for exercises. With that in mind, here are some home design trends for physical fitness this 2022.

Sports court

If you are blessed enough to have the square footage for it, consider installing a tennis, basketball, or multipurpose sports court in your backyard. It’s a fun and fantastic way of getting your kids to enjoy sports, especially those who don’t thrive in other types of exercises. Not all kids enjoy simple aerobics and different kinds of cardio. Having a court where they can unleash their competitive side is an excellent way to get them to move during their school breaks.

The best part about having a court in your yard is that it can be a multifunctional space; it doesn’t need just to be a court for one specific sport. You can use it to do some dancing and some aerobics, as long as you invest in the right portable equipment.


Here’s some good news: Your home gym doesn’t need to be cold, lifeless, and sterile. One of the best things about interior design is that function and beauty can go together.

One home gym trend undoubtedly leaving is the rough-and-tumble, stripped-down atmosphere. Many believed that a gym needed to be a bit on the barer side for many decades. That way, people can focus on their workouts. But the best part of investing in a home gym is that you get to choose the look, feel, and atmosphere you want to create; that makes you feel the most excited to get your sweat on.

Here are some examples of trendy aesthetics and design ideas that you can consider for your home gym this year:

  • Opt for plenty of greenery and potted plants if you want to feel like you’re surrounded by nature while doing your workout routine.
  • An all-white aesthetic can be suitable for adding a semblance of serenity throughout your day. Add some wood materials and more greenery to make your workout space feel warmer.
  • Another styling idea incorporates some moody leather accents and black walls, especially if you live in a bustling city.

Just because your home gym is more utilitarian doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice its aesthetics. Let your unique style and personality shine through in your gym, and you would certainly feel at home in it. Personalize and customize it to your heart’s content to get a sense of ownership in the space and want to use it more often.

Aerial yoga

One yoga trend that people will continue to see in 2022 is aerial yoga. This type of yoga is all about performing the same traditional yoga poses that people usually do on a mat, except you’re doing it in a silk hammock hanging from a ceiling. Also known as anti-gravity yoga, this workout can help improve one’s flexibility, poses, and posture. If you need to work on these areas in your physical health, consider investing in an aerial hammock for your home gym. Here are some quick tips on how to set it up:

  • To ensure safety, your rig should have the capacity to carry around 2,000 to 5,000 pounds worth of weight. It needs to be strong enough to suspend your car.
  • Consider hiring professional riggers instead of doing it yourself, especially if your ceiling is on the high side. The last thing you want is to make assumptions and cause accidents along the way. Safety in flying is most important.

Let 2022 be the year you invest in a space in your house that will encourage you to move and help you go from duty to discipline to delight. Working out need not be burdensome as long as you ensure you’re in love with your home gym.
