The best brands of sports equipment for doing sport at home
Doing sport at home with the right equipment
Indeed, a sedentary lifestyle is the worst enemy of a healthy life. Physical activity is essential to be healthy and feel better. There is no doubt about that. However, the problem comes when we find it difficult, for example, to go to a gym. Either because it is far from home or because we have no way of getting there. At this point, we should consider the idea of doing sport at home.
The best way to do this is to have the right equipment and sports equipment that allows for an all-round workout. At the same time, all this equipment must be integrated into a room in the home and fit in with the general decoration.
At Molins Design we have developed decoration projects in which one of the clients’ requests was to be able to do sport at home. For this, we have opted for equipment such as Technogym, which combines quality and design. In addition, they manufacture some of the best equipment for doing sport at home.
Of course, there are other manufacturers that do an extraordinary job and today we want to tell you about the best brands of sports equipment for doing sport at home. Here is our selection.
The best brands for doing sport at home
The Technogym brand was founded in Cesena, a city in northern Italy. Brothers Nerio and Pierluigi Alessandri locked themselves in the garage of the family home and designed Isotomoc. It was a complete strength training line. This was the first launch of a brand that is now a leader in its sector.
The progression continued with the creation of the first home gym. A machine of barely 1 m2 ideal for doing sport at home. It also became a status symbol.
From then on, the brand signed collaborations with football clubs such as AC Milan and Formula 1 drivers. Its growth was exponential and its founders ended up creating the wellness concept. They were pioneers in establishing the idea that sport is a source of health for the body and mind.
Today they are suppliers of equipment for the summer and winter Olympic Games and have a foundation that aims to reduce sedentary lifestyles and obesity. Their designs are innovative and integrate perfectly into the home. Doing sport at home has never been easier.

Andreas Bachman and Fritz Grospietsch are two well-known product designers in Europe. Born in Germany, they founded Galerie Bachman in Berlin. Here they design furniture and accessories.
In 2016 they made the leap to designing material for sports at home with the creation of Kenkō.
The premise was to design and manufacture sports equipment of the highest quality and to do so with natural materials.
Thus, they opted for natural solid wood and cork. The design of the pieces is minimalist and combines Japanese design philosophy with German wood craftsmanship. The production is handcrafted and many pieces are handmade with great attention to detail.
Above all, the result is accessories for sports at home. For example, barbells, expanders, dumbbells, rings or kettlebells that not only look like sports equipment but also like sculptures.
Thus, geometrical shapes of lasting beauty and customised production for sports and regeneration equipment for home sports.

3. Vaha Global
Vaha Global’s commitment to sport at home is truly innovative. This brand has launched an interactive mirror that offers personalised training sessions. The mirror shows the image of a trainer who guides the amateur athlete throughout the class.
You can do cardio, strength, weights, yoga, intense training, pilates or meditation. There is a wide variety of trainers who are specialists in one field or another. All you have to do is stand in front of the mirror and switch it on.
The equipment includes the mirror with a high-performance processor with 32 GB RAM and 64 GB ROM. It incorporates a wide-angle camera, full brushed metal chassis, detachable metal stand and non-slip base.
Without a doubt, this is a fun way to do sport by attending a personalised class. There are 2 sizes of mirror which, when not in use, add an exclusive and elegant touch to the room. It is a very innovative application for doing sport at home.
4. WaterRower | Nohrd
In 1988, Yale engineer John Duke designed a rowing simulator for sport at home. The design was undertaken with two goals in mind. First, to replicate the experience of rowing a real boat. The second, to create an aesthetically pleasing and stylish piece of fitness furniture.
Thus, the WaterRover is made of solid wood and has a sleek line and perfect finish. In addition, Duke wanted to work with a sustainable material such as wood to create equipment that would last a lifetime.
The brand is based in Rhode Island, and the proximity of the Appalachian Mountains makes it easy to source high-quality wood. All the components of the equipment have a precise role in the exercise and its philosophy rules out quick-use, disposable material.
Nohrd is WaterRower’s sister brand and is based in Germany. Its factory has adopted the same principles as the parent brand. In this case, it is dedicated to the design and assembly of curved treadmills, indoor bikes and multifunctional benches.
Of course, the material is of a fantastic aesthetic quality and gives a pleasantly firm and solid feel.
The last brand to do sport at home that we recommend you from Molins Design is Maxwall. We are still located in Germany, specifically in Saxony. It was there that Max Kant, designer and personal trainer, founded this brand of home sports equipment.
Kant’s idea was that Maxwall should manufacture multifunctional devices that were at the same time beautiful. To this end, he also opted for the warm and noble material of wood.
Beech wood is the main protagonist of Maxwall’s designs. But in addition, the design is enriched with hand-polished stainless steel finishes. All parts are handmade in Germany.
Maxwall’s philosophy invites you to combine health, fitness and healthy eating. To this end, it provides wall bars in two different designs that can be placed in any room in the home. In addition, it completes the equipment with bars, weights and an abdominal bench.
It is a multifunctional device that makes it easy to get the whole body in shape. In addition, it has a modern and elegant design that adds an exclusive touch to any room.
