“It just transcends the pandemic,” Holladay said. “There have always been fitness-conscious people who wanted a home gym, but today even casual athletes have found a way to exercise in their own space. When we’re working on a new version, that’s something that comes up.

This owner converted a garage into a dedicated gym space with industrial gym floor, TV, equipment such as weight and pull-up rack, weight bench, free weights, rower and mirrors.

He said brands like Peloton have been a game changer because now you don’t have to go to a gym to have the gym experience.
