May is National Physical Fitness Month – a great time to take a closer look at the types of fitness amenities developers are implementing in today’s luxury residential buildings. There has been a steady rise in consumer-centric workout studios in major metropolitan cities, though nothing is more convenient for residents than having a gym where they reside – maximizing time with fitness options just steps away from their front door.
Below are fitness centers at luxury residential developments with novelty features, pushing the envelope to offer something a little extra for residents.
One of the standout features in Skyline Tower’s fully-equipped fitness center is its Peloton bikes, which will allow users to stream live classes – an interactive element that will let residents skip that extra trip to their cycle studio. The luxury condominium also boasts a 75-foot temperature-controlled lap pool; private yoga and Pilates instruction; group weight and cardio classes and aquatic fitness lessons. Designed by Hill West Architects with interiors by Whitehall Interiors, the building’s fitness center will be finished with oak and bronze mirrored walls and a rubber floor.
Wellness and fitness are at the forefront of the lifestyle at Solé Mia’s the Shoreline, the first two luxury rental buildings on the $4 billion 184-acre master-plan development. For the beautiful sunny days, Solé Mia offers a 10-acre running trail around South Florida’s first 7-acre man-made crystal swimmable lagoon and into the neighboring Oleta State Park. For those rainy days, the Shoreline’s spacious fitness center offers Peloton bikes and Fitness on Demand. The amenity-rich development offers one, two and three-bedroom residences.

The “Arena” is the residents’ own personal gym – equipped with Technogym cardio and strength machines, Peloton bikes, and basketball and squash courts. Residents even have access to Lululemon x Summit branded yoga mats and yoga classes.
