It's the time of year where your gym suddenly goes from a quiet place to contemplate your life on the elliptical to so-crowded-you-can-barely-move. Wouldn't it be nicer to have a spot to do your circuit routine in your own home? And we're not talking about a broom closet with a stationary bike. These three homes feature full, private gyms where you can do more than sit and spin.
211 Muddy Run Road, Oxford, PA
Taxes: $2,365 monthly
Let's get physical: Five-bedroom Waterford Farm sits on 72 acres in Chester County. So if you need a break from the exercise room on the second floor (itself adjacent to the game room with its own gadgetry), there's always a walk around the grounds. If that array of activities bores you too, there's a pool outside and stables for the horses you can ride in your own dressage ring.
11 Coopertown Road, Haverford, PA
Taxes: $2,936 monthly
Let's get physical: The lower level of Craig Hall includes just about every amenity you can imagine for a home. There's a wine cellar and a surround-sound home theater and a large private gym with cable hookup so you don't need to watch CNN on a loop at Planet Fitness. For a less traditional workout, you can also traverse the gorgeous Yellen-designed marble staircase in the grand entryway.
10 Schofield Road, Phoenixville, PA
Taxes: $1,579 monthly
Let's get physical: We love that the gym in this five-bedroom stunner isn't relegated to a dark and quiet basement. The natural light that pours into the lower-level gym here is amplified by a wall of mirrors, making it the perfect place to also perfect your no-I'm-not-winded-on-this-stair-climber face.
