The Perfect Home Gym

By Christopher Metler

More than ever, fitness has become an expression of living in addition to a way of life. And to follow suit, home gyms are becoming a basic necessity for the active, well-conditioned professional. But not just any ordinary spot to pump iron or enjoy ‘leg day’ will do. No, you require a home gym as sleek, detailed, and finely crafted as the body you're building.

HOCK’s latest impressive development enables the first dumbbell set—consisting of eight pairs of dumbbells with a total 176kg weight—placed on one beautiful, compact rack consisting of a heavy-duty supportive frame and a carcass made from walnut, affording the set both a visual and haptical design highlight. $20,680

Kinesis Personal Leather by TechnoGym

With a system of rotating pulleys, Kinesis is geared for training at home and in environments dedicated to psychological and physical well-being.

The result is the first ever piece of designer furnishing providing more than 200 exercises in only one square metre. Price available upon request.
