So you want to start working out at home. Shea Homes® Houston floorplans offer open, versatile spaces to get you moving and make your fitness goals more attainable.

Your home gym could be in a multi-purpose room, sharing space with your couch or your car.


Shea homeowners have much to consider when setting up a gym. First, decide which space to utilize. Flex rooms, studies, lofts, bonus rooms, garages, and spare bedrooms can make for great gyms. If you have yard space and permitting community covenant rules, you can even install a separate workout shed. Also consider your home gym's proximity to the bathroom and kitchen.

One great feature of the home gym is personalization. Do you want to focus on specific activities, such as strength training or martial arts – or would you rather take a whole-body approach? Tailor your equipment and layout to your own preferences.

Many communities have their own fitness centers for residents – a great alternative to paying a gym membership or remodeling a room.


You can install horse stall mats to protect your floors and reduce noise, as well as a wall-length mirror to check your form. Because a home gym is smaller than a commercial gym, utilize your space efficiently with storage and multi-use equipment. To be environment and wallet friendly, find gently used machines online.

Fitness is not a destination, but a lifelong journey, and no two fitness journeys are the same. With a bit of research and imagination, your Shea home can adapt to your unique lifestyle.
