Crazy filming schedules, interviews, celebrity appearances, families of their own… Where do celebrities find the time to keep those waistlines so slim? Well, many of them take the smart approach and put gyms right in their homes so that they can fit workouts in at all hours. Here’s a peek into 8 of the best.
8. Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom
The only thing Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom share with each other these days are low blows. But once upon a time, in pretty recent history, their life together included a gorgeous house complete with a decked out home gym.
7. Kate Walsh
If you’ve ever wondered how Dr. Addison Montgomery stayed in shape on Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, all you have to do is take a look a actress Kate Walsh’s home gym. This studio boasts pale hardwood against colorful, state-of-the-art pilates equipment to help keep the star toned on a busy schedule.
6. Gabrielle Reece & Laird Hamilton
If two married world-class athletes didn’t have a home gym, there would more than likely be trouble in paradise. Or maybe love-handles in paradise. Luckily for everyone, pro-volleyball star, Gabrielle Reece and pro-surfer, Laird Hamilton turned their basement into a spot to where they can build up their muscles off the court and on dry land. The couple sold this Maui home, though, in 2011. It stands to reason that wherever they moved, they have a gym just as perfect.
5. Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon
No one can blame a lack of exercise for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s recent splitting up. The couple might have recently admitted to marital problems, but their home gym, which includes a half-court for basketball and full fitness area, is just right. The question is, who gets it in the split?
4. Hulk Hogan
Are you ready for a workout, brother? Judging by the size of Hulk Hogan, he’s definitely always ready. Which is obviously why he had this beast of a gym set up in his Bel-Air home. He sold the house in 2012, probably for a house with wider door frames.
3. Stanley Tucci
Most New York based actors prefer living in Manhattan. But living Upstate definitely comes with its perks. Just ask Stanley Tucci, who is able to have enough square footage (and then some) to work out in his own home gym and then cooling down in his swimming pool just outside. You definitely can’t find space like that in SoHo.
2. Tom Brady & Gisele
When you have the combined paycheck of power couple, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, there’s not really very much that you can’t have. A fully loaded home gym is obviously one of the perks. So, it comes as no surprise that this amazing gym could be found in their estate home – yes, the same estate that had a moat around it.
1. Mark Wahlberg
Was it Mark Wahlberg’s vocal stylings with The Funky Bunch that launched his career? Or was it, perhaps, his chiseled chin and washboard abs? Definitely the abs. In fact, Wahlberg has been so ripped his whole time in the spotlight, it’s hard to believe that the man wasn’t just born that way. But, he clearly has always worked very hard at achieving his physique, which is why he has such a killer gym in his home. He even had a boxing ring installed so that he could properly train for his role in, The Fighter.
