While some of us are eager to get back into the gym following a year’s worth of on and off stay-at-home orders, the rest of us are looking for ways to up our home gym game. Now that we know we can enjoy all the perks of a gym in the comfort of our own private homes, many are prioritizing home gym renovation projects over resubscribing to monthly gym fees. Merging the home gym with storage capabilities, the Stoyka from product design studio Dydykin is a power rack for the modern home designed to look like high-end furniture.
Since physical fitness has become integral to our daily routines, the purpose behind Stoyka aims to strike a balance in using living spaces as fitness studios. In finding that harmony, the designers behind Stoyka integrated a storage system into the power rack, which slides out from behind the power rack’s rear wall. These sliding racks carry enough room to store the power rack’s barbells, round weighted plates, as well as rack accessories like support beams and spotter’s arms. Interchangeable by design, the Stoyka seamlessly blends into any home or office space simply by sliding the hidden storage panels behind the power rack’s rear wall. Equipped with the means for strength HIIT training and balance and flexibility exercises, Stoyka comes complete with reinforced racks, hooks, safety stops, crossbars, and removable wall bars.
With storage doors designed similarly to that of sliding doors in the kitchen, the idea behind Stoyka’s hidden storage units aims to bring the home gym into any modern living space without compromising the interior design of any given room. With so many of us itching to get active and near barbells again, what better way than to bring them right to our living room?
Round weighted plates and barbells make up the bulk of Stoyka’s hidden storage space.
With stainless steel accents and an inconspicuous design, Stoyka blends into any living room when not in use.
In addition to barbells and plates, the storage compartments carry support beams and spotter racks.
While Stoyka does have a wider body, its rear wall merges with the home’s interior walls as if they were always connected.
Depending on the living space it finds itself in, the Stoyka comes in different colors to match the interior schemes of various rooms.
