Whether you’re a yogi, a weight-lifting enthusiast, or just want a space for the kids to shoot some hoops, a home gym or athletic court might be just what you need. If you don’t have a room for a larger dedicated gym space right now, there are many ways to create your own yoga corner or fitness nook in your home. And if you are thinking about adding a home gym to your next home, you’re in luck. Parade of Homes builders are pros at making sure your home fits your lifestyle just right. Here are home fitness room ideas to help you work up a sweat.
Indoor Athletic Courts
In Minnesota, we’re no strangers to long winters stuck inside. That’s why adding an athletic court to your new home—like this one from NIH Homes—might be just the ticket to expending some of your extra energy. And indoor courts can be used for so much more than just shooting hoops—set up a volleyball net, shoot some soccer goals, or use the open space to set up relay runs for the kids.
Whether you want to watch your favorite show while doing cardio, use videos to guide your at-home workouts, or boost your mood with music, adding technology to your fitness space can enhance your workout experience. Hanson Builders made the most of the space in this athletic court with cardio equipment and a television.
Consider the Details

Natural Light + Views
City Homes made the most of this home’s lake view with this home gym. Natural light pours into the space, so it feels like you’re surrounded by mother nature even when you’re confined indoors.
Calming & Minimalistic
