New Year’s resolution - buy a home with a gym

With up to 30% of all new gym memberships taking place in the month of January, trimming up and getting into shape is a priority each New Year. Although all resolutions start with good intent, figures released at the start of 2012 showed that the public wastes a total of 37 billion on gym memberships, exercise and slimming classes they never attend.

A home gym can often provide a more practical, private solution. Jackson-Stops & Staff has a number of properties on the market with exceptional gyms that can keep your resolutions on track.

Offering a breathtaking indoor swimming pool and leisure complex, Tall Trees in Prestbury, Cheshire, is a striking five bedroom property that combines bold architecture and technology to provide the ultimate modern family living space. The swimming pool and gymnasium are on display through the full height glazing in the hall. A dedicated media room provides the ideal space to relax and unwind.
