Have you ever dreamt of your own home gym? Would the convenience of exercising in your own private space wipe out lingering laziness and make excuses for not exercising a thing of the past? Time saving and privacy are the main benefits of a home gym, said Pascal Bollmann, who runs personal training and gym design companyPascal Bollmann, in Freienbach, Switzerland. “Training doesn’t have to take half an hour or an hour. Sometimes you have 10 or 15 minutes. It can be early in the morning or when you put dinner in the steamer and do a short workout,” Bollmann said. “A lot of my clients are well known in business life and are often surrounded by a lot of people. They enjoy having privacy in order to relax.” But, will you really use it — if you buy it? That’s the age-old question usually answered with a resounding “no” by the many people who use their bedroom treadmill as a pricey coat rack. “Most people with home gyms start off gung-ho and fizzle out. In a good gym there’s camaraderie and you see other people making progress and that lifts you up. We are by nature competitive beings,” said Nick Mitchell, founder of Ultimate Performance training company which has gyms in Hong Kong, London, Marbella and Singapore.
