Must Have Home Gym Trends  

Even with the pandemic far behind us, the allure of home gyms and home workouts show zero signs of fading even four years down the line. Re-adjusting to the commuter lifestyle once again can leave you with less time and energy to go to the gym. Is it a surprise that home-gyms and workouts have become a preferred favourite? No commute is required – you can just get out of bed on a morning, and stroll right into your home gym, it’s open 24/7, and aside from one-off purchases for gym equipment, there’s no membership fee to pay!  

At Crown Pavilions, we’ve seen a significant rise in demand for garden gym rooms, and this blog post will explore the latest home gym trends for 2024. 

Rise of Holistic Fitness Trends: Incline Walking and Pilates

2023 was the year of the ‘12-3-30 workout’ treadmill trend, captivating social media platforms and saw a surge of over 2000 monthly searches every month, as well as widespread TikTok and Instagram coverage, for this simple, yet highly effective routine of incline walking for thirty minutes. Our research at Crown Pavilions shows that there has been a significant 64% increase this past quarter in monthly search volume trends for the term ‘walking pad treadmill’. This trend reflects the rising popularity in more holistic approaches to exercise like low-impact workouts like walking, yoga, and pilates, which prioritise overall wellbeing and emotional health alongside physical fitness, driving the increase in treadmill searches. 

Rachel Franklin, Franchisee of Studio Pilates Putney, said: “2024 has witnessed a remarkable surge in the popularity of holistic fitness practices, and Pilates has emerged as a frontrunner in this transformative movement.” 

“Recent stats released by PureGym, show Pilates claims three of the top 20 fitness trends for 2024, with the likes of Wall Pilates, Mat Pilates, and Reformer Pilates rising in stardom across social media channels such as TikTok. By harnessing the support of walls, individuals can engage in dynamic Pilates exercises that target core strength, stability, and flexibility. This trend underscores the adaptability of Pilates, making it an ideal choice for individuals seeking effective and enjoyable workouts from the comfort of their own homes.” 

Free-standing weights and dumbbells are also highly popular amongst home gymers – they can be used for a variety of exercises and target multiple muscle groups, yet take up hardly any space, and do not cost anything to power. Coupled with the availability of personalised fitness apps that include comprehensive guides and routines, it is easier than ever to tailor workouts to individual preferences and goals. 

The Weighted Vest: A Home Gym Essential for 2024

Another upcoming must-have home gym trend for 2024 is training with a weighted vest. Hailed as an affordable, versatile, and effective fitness tool, it targets all the major muscle groups and promotes overall muscle strength and endurance. They have been gaining traction over the past 12 months, with online interest increasing by 23% showing how they’re a must-have for 2024, with even the likes of David Beckham and Mark Zuckerberg weighing in on the action. PT, fitness coach and ambassador for PRIMAL – Sarah Holden – stated that there has been an 116% increase in sales over the past 12 months. Along with a walking pad treadmill, a set of dumbbells, why is there any need to go the gym where you can just workout just as effectively and intensely in your home gym? 

Bespoke Garden Gyms

With the help of Crown Pavilions, you can have a bespoke outdoor garden gym tailored to your needs, whether that be with softer flooring for your at-home pilates classes, or a harder, wooden flooring to support the use of dumbbells and cardio equipment like the walking pad.
