Homes With Gyms For Sale in The Hudson Valley and Catskills

 

When it comes to keeping a New Year's resolution to exercise, more a home gym may be the key to turning your resolution into your lifestyle. When it comes to buying a home with a home gym in the Hudson Valley and Catskills, let me be your guide...

It’s mid-January...what did you resolve? Studies show that most people make resolutions around health and money. In 2021, 50% of people who made resolutions resolved to exercise more and/or lose weight. The statistics on how many people actually keep their resolution are a little....well, sad! They're a bummer! 8%. 8% of resolvers keep their resolutions through the year. Yeek. Why does this happen?! What's wrong with all of us resolvers?!

Nothing really.

The problem lies where our resolutions collide with our habits and lifestyle. If your greatest joy is staying in your PJ's until 11am while you work from home, there's no leaf you can turn over that will push you out the door, smartly dressed for the gym at 5:30am every morning so you'll be back at your desk in time for your first zoom at 9. It's not going to happen! Maybe for a couple of weeks, but after that? Not happening. Those PJ's are going to be call your name, and you're going to answer. If this is you, it's fine! Don't worry! You're in good company with the other 92% of people whose resolutions crashed into their lifestyles.

I find the easiest way to add a new habit is to incorporate into my day it in a way that makes the smallest impact on my routine possible. This might sound like the lazy persons way to make change, but I say, no! This is the way that works! If you have a space to exercise that you love (or at least like) in your home you can work out in your PJ's where no one can see you. You can sing Pat Benatar tunes loud while you spin. You can grunt all you want and the purple and yellow grunt police will have nothing to say about it. You can listen to the same NPR program you've been listening to for years while you slowly sip your coffee and bench press 10 pounds more than you did last week. If the only thing that changes about your day is that you take a few minutes away from each of the other activities you do habitually and put them into a half an hour exercise bank, chances are good that you'll just fold that workout into your day, every day. So my friends, let's find you a home Upstate with a gym space, so you can enjoy a life that's just a tiny bit different, but a whole lot healthier.

First up, this fabulous gym space at:

 

126 Shadow Mountain Road, East Jewett

 

This home has a floor plan that's unique and interesting - designed to take in serious mountain views, and also perfect for a home gym for someone who's serious about fitness. A smashing circular glass staircase descends from a circular family room and sitting room to a circular gym where you can work out and enjoy the views of the mountains and the gardens. Fitness fanatics will find many more things to love at this luxury property - there are four ponds for paddling or swimming and two barns for horses or other furry friends. The mountains are just outside the door and Colgate Lake is three miles away. I do know of a few hardy souls who swim at Colgate Lake this time of year. I think if this were my house, I think I'd stick to my gym in the deep winter! Take a 3D Tour here.

 

 


 

82 Hapeman Hill Road, Red Hook

 

On the other hand, the indoor pool at 82 Hapeman Hill Road, in Red Hook would suit me fine year-round. A 15x30’ pool filled with salt water that's heated geothermically and kept toasty with an insulating cover when not in use, it sits in a humidity-controlled cedar room with views of the property. BONUS: There's a gym space across the hall from the pool. BONUS #2: There are nearly 27 acres outside for fresh-air exercise. Take a 3D Tour here and a video tour here including aerial footage of the amazing property which boasts the highest elevation in Red Hook. 

 

 


 

 

54 The Hills, Kingston

 

The ground floor of this three-floor townhouse is perfect for a gym space. Since it's not currently used as one, we tricked it out with a little virtual staging magic! Townhouse living is a great way to keep your lifestyle easy-breezy (thereby leaving some time for your new healthy habits). This property overlooks the Rondout Creek (seasonal views) and is close to downtown shopping and dining. Take the 3D Tour here.

 


 

 

40 Gaby Road, Hunter

 

 

This modern mountain luxury home has views of Hunter, incredible style and a perfect space for a gym. It's currently in use as a game room, complete with pool table, but once again we've waived our virtual staging wand and voila - Home gym! Right down the hall is a sauna for relaxing post-workout. Make sure to tour the rest of the home here - it's so lovely.

 

 


 

 

3500 Route 9G, Rhinebeck

 

 

Oh the pretty barns! Oh the pretty tack room! Oh the pretty pastures.... ohhhhh wait. We were talking home gyms. Right! Along with the 30 acres that are already appointed for riding, pasturing and breeding horses, Full Sail Farm in Rhinebeck has a space that's just waiting for your workout equipment! On the lower floor of this awesomely rustic mid-century style ranch is a wide open family room that has a woodstove (hot yoga?) and towel and equipment storage already built in. Once again we've given it a virtual staging so you don't have to imagine. This is a beautiful property. Even the hayloft is appealing! Take the 3D tour here and an aerial tour of the property here.

 


 

1460 Jackson Corners, Red Hook

 

 

I like to think of 1460 Jackson Corners in Red Hook as the "River House". The Roeliff Jansen Kill runs through the property, reminiscent of a venetian canal. There's a private terrace just below the property's pool that was cut into a rock outcropping allowing access for fishing, swimming or water-side lounging. In the property's carriage house the current owners have carved out some space for fitness - perfect if you've got a little bustle going on in the house and you need to remove yourself for some sweat time. BUT, if you want to be in the center of it all, there are several spaces in the main house that would make great fitness areas - the atrium along the back of the house looks out over the river, the lower floor has a space that would work, perhaps you don't need all 4 bedrooms for sleeping, and the study (the study!) would make a stunning home gym - what a luxury! Tour the whole property here.

 


 

87 Onderdonk Road, Warwick

 

 

Now THIS is a garage fit for a home gym. You could invite all your neighbors to come exercise with you! 87 Onderdonk is a wonderful property in Warwick. Aside from the fab garage I love the kitchen, the lovely living room with it's stone fireplace made for gatherings and the several outbuildings that provide flexibility for all your big plans.
