Top 10 Luxury Superyacht Gym Picks
Luxury superyacht gym design specialists, Gym Marine, choose only specific brands and pieces of gym equipment because of their design, high-specification and quality.
Here they share their top 10 picks:
- Our most popular is the Kinesis personal vision cable machine. Great if there’s not much floor space, because it’s conveniently built into the wall.
The Technogym Kinesis Personal Vision has a beautiful flat-wall, mirror design so users can check their posture mid-exercise. And with a staggering 200 exercises in one multi-functional piece, resistance can be changed with the soft touch digital display. If you’d like to add a splash of glamour, why not request the more luxurious Black, Leather or Gold finishes?
- Popular with superyacht clients is the WaterRower, with its patented water-resistant flywheel, which creates a natural through-the-water resistance. Making it possibly the most realistic rowing feel you’ll get from an indoor rower, understandable then that it’s the preferred erg of British Rowing. In a beautiful and varied design, the WaterRower is completely customisable; coming in a range of finishes from Dark American Walnut, Honey Oak, Cherry, Ash, stainless steel or contemporary stained black.
- Water Rower introduced NOHrD, the wooden fitness manufacturer; including bike, 2 bench options and Kettlebells. All made from beautiful wood. Wooden equipment is easy to clean, won’t rust if it’s outdoors, exposed to the elements and blends beautifully with those onboard teak finishes. So stunning in their design they could be called ‘works of art’.
- For smaller gyms or if there’s no dedicated gym onboard, we’ll often supply adjustable Dumbbells, the NUO Flexbells. With a single weight of up to 32kg, simply click a button to increase or reduce the weight.
- For a full set of dumbbells, Gym Marine have recently launched their own beautifully customisable set of GM Custom Classic Dumbbells. Choose the wood for the handle to match the interior of your yacht, perhaps Oak, Walnut and other exotic woods to match the sundeck or flooring, and have the end plates engraved, so they’re customised to match the yacht’s name. Comes with its own matching free-weights rack. Their other set of luxury dumbbells are Diabolo Dumbbells specifically designed to be anti-roll, with a concave end so they don’t roll around the gymnasium, squash toes or damage interiors when you’re at sea or at anchor.
- For cardio exercise we recommend the Technogym Artis Line, mainly for superyacht gyms. The line which includes a cross trainer and treadmill is incredibly high quality. Robust, durable and absolutely perfect for outdoors. Designed to withstand the rigours of the sea air and salt-water.
- Our most popular treadmill is the Technogym MyRun, it’s lightweight, easy to use, folds away neatly, making it really convenient for storing, so you don’t have to have it permanently “out and on display”. With an integrated iPad holder, users simply connect and sync to their favourite Apple Mac devices, stream movies and access their favourite apps while training. Offering the ultimate running experience, MyRun enables you to set up personalised training programmes, giving you instant feedback.
- If you’re lacking floor space, the Life Fitness IC6 is the perfect premium indoor spinning bike. With its small footprint and lightweight build, it’s neat and easy to move around, inside or out on the sundeck. Self-powered, there are no unsightly cables, the pedalling action powers it, complete with Bluetooth and batteries in the console, so users can keep track of their rides.
- If you’re just always on the move but still want to train, whatever your level and strength, have you thought about accessories? Gym Marine recommend the TRX PRO Suspension Training Kit which enables gym users to perform hundreds of functional exercises with just one TRX. Increase strength, flexibility, body weight, core stability … the whole bang shoot! Plus, they’re light and easy to pack away, so won’t take up lots of space in your luggage.
- For Yoga enthusiasts onboard, out on the sundeck or in the privacy of their own luxury cabin, Gym Marine supply the Escape Yoga Mat, with a central positioning line, you can make sure you’re always perfectly balanced.
