New Homes Fit For a New Year

Posted 10 January 2019 by Helen Christie

With the start of January comes New Year’s resolutions, and the most common resolutions revolve around exercising more...

The most common New Year’s resolutions revolve around exercising more, getting fitter and losing weight, and having a gym nearby can certainly boost the chances of succeeding in those goals.

The British Heart Foundation estimates that more than 20 million people in the UK are physically inactive. Home gyms are becoming more popular, but for those who have to go miles from home to visit a gym, exercising regularly might not fit in within their busy schedules. New build developments that offer gyms on-site could mean that getting fit in the New Year is far less time-consuming and consequently more achievable.

We’ve put together a selection of some impressive new homes that offer on-site gyms…
