Wellness at High Sea: Perfect Gyms for Superyachts
Most superyachts of today have exquisitely equipped gyms or fitness corners that allow the owner to stay in shape during their vacation
Yachting is a special form of hedonism; it is the love of life and beautiful things best described to those still not in the know in the words of Mr. Carlo Riva, sailor extraordinaire, who honed the concept of Dolce Vita and honed enjoyment of all things beautiful to perfection.
As the concept evolved, so did yachting, and over decades turned into a trend-factory with eyes of the entire luxury industry on it. In the 1960s, along with Riva’s Dolce Vita, emerged a philosophy of wellness and the perfect balance of the body and mind.
In this day and age, there is no greater luxury than the elusive quality time, and there is no greater vacation than an experience offering both healthy living and nautical hedonism. Lately, there’s been a noticeable uptick in the interest for fitness in the world of luxury yachting, most visible in the growing popularity of gyms on superyachts. Once considered a bonus room, the gym has become an absolute must-have.
Most superyachts of today have exquisitely equipped gyms or fitness corners that allow the owner to stay in shape during their vacation. Many superyacht owners and yachting brokers have decided to adapt to this new trend, adding to their crews fitness and yoga experts in charge of monitoring the exercise regime and diet of their clients, offering alternative solutions or advice.
Gyms have become an onboard essential for owners or clients, but to design the ideal gym, one that meets all the needs of owners and clients, smart equipment is as valuable and important as advice of experienced healthy living professionals.
Interior of an average superyacht exudes understated luxury, and fitness areas are expected to follow the same visual principle in order to fit perfectly into the concept of wellness on the high seas, both in terms of quality and aesthetic.
