Designing Your Space

Having a custom home gym can provide you with a great opportunity to achieve your fitness goals while also creating a beautiful and relaxing space. Don Collins Builder will help you plan out and design the perfect home gym that best suits your needs. The process begins with a consultation where we discuss the type of space you have to work with, any existing features you may want to incorporate, and what sort of equipment you wish to include. We then proceed to design a plan that takes into account all of your requirements.

When designing your space, it is important to keep the layout functional, which means having enough room to move around safely and comfortably. You’ll also want to consider how you will use the space. Will you be lifting weights? Doing yoga? Working out with machines? Knowing this ahead of time will help us decide what type of flooring is best for your home gym. We can also suggest any additional features that might make your home gym more enjoyable, such as adding a sound system or special lighting to create the perfect atmosphere. 



Selecting the right equipment for your space can make all the difference in how you enjoy your workouts. There are a variety of different types of equipment available, and it’s important to choose the items that will best suit your individual needs.

For starters, consider the size of your space when selecting equipment. If you have limited space, it might be best to stick to basic cardio machines, such as treadmills or ellipticals. You may also want to consider adding some free weights, like dumbbells or kettlebells if you plan on doing weight training as well. Additionally, consider adding some resistance bands, stability balls, and foam rollers for stretching and other low-impact exercises.

You should also think about which type of equipment best suits your specific needs and goals. If you’re looking to build muscle mass, you’ll likely need heavier weights and various machines to target specific muscle groups. If you’re looking to increase endurance or stay lean and toned, then lighter weights and high-intensity interval training machines might be better for you.

Finally, don’t forget about the aesthetics. Your luxury home gym should reflect your style, so choose pieces that match your existing decor. When possible, opt for higher-end pieces with quality materials that will last you many years. 



Choosing flooring for your luxury home gym is an important step in creating a comfortable and practical space. It is important to consider the type of equipment you plan to use, as well as the amount of traffic and activity you expect in your home gym.

When selecting flooring, look for materials that are durable, easy to clean, and resistant to stains and scratches. Hardwood floors are a popular choice for a high-end look. Vinyl flooring is also a great option, and it comes in a variety of colors and patterns to suit your aesthetic. Rubber flooring provides excellent cushioning and shock absorption for heavy-weights, so it’s a good choice for powerlifters and bodybuilders.

You can also add rubber mats or foam tiles to provide additional cushioning or to create areas for specific activities. Rugs are another option if you want to add style and color to your home gym. Just be sure to choose materials that are designed to withstand the wear and tear of exercise.

No matter what type of flooring you choose, make sure you invest in quality materials. High-quality flooring will last longer and ensure that your gym stays looking good for years to come.


Sound System


A sound system is an important component of a luxury home gym. Whether you are lifting weights, running on the treadmill or just enjoying some stretching, having a quality sound system helps set the mood and adds to the overall ambience of your home gym.

When choosing a sound system for your luxury home gym, it’s important to consider the size of the space and the type of sound you want. If your home gym is large, you might want to go with a larger speaker system or a multi-channel setup. If it’s a smaller room, you might be able to get away with a smaller speaker system and a single channel.

There are several types of audio systems available to choose from, including surround sound systems, Bluetooth speakers, and more. It’s important to find the one that fits your needs best. Additionally, consider investing in quality headphones for a more personal experience.

Once you’ve selected the right sound system for your luxury home gym, make sure to get the most out of it by experimenting with different levels and settings. With the right system, you’ll be able to make your workouts even more enjoyable and enjoyable.



When it comes to creating a luxurious home gym, don’t forget about the accessories! Accessories can help to elevate your home gym and take it from ordinary to extraordinary. From mini fridges stocked with energy drinks, to flat screen TVs, there are so many ways to make your gym stand out. Consider adding high-end components such as a Bluetooth-enabled speaker system for pumping music, a wall-mounted mirror for tracking your progress, or even a shower and bathroom for convenience. By investing in quality accessories, you can make your home gym into an inviting and enjoyable space. Additionally, accessories like these can add value to your home if you decide to sell it down the line. No matter what type of accessories you choose, they’ll help create the ultimate luxury home gym.




Building the ultimate luxury home gym can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. With the right design, equipment, flooring, sound system, and accessories, you can create an atmosphere that makes your workouts more enjoyable and effective. When creating a home gym, the best way to ensure success is to focus on the details and create something that’s tailored to your individual needs. With careful consideration and the right resources, you can make sure that your home gym is a place where you feel comfortable and motivated to reach your fitness goals.
