    Hi fellas,

    If you could design a custom-tailored training studio with personal training services, what would that personalized training studio contain?

    In other words, what physical surroundings and elements in a personal training studio would make you feel motivated, energized, positive-minded, and comfortable - all at the same time?

    More specifically, what do you like in the way of:

    - Type of music?
    - D├ęcor/Colour?
    - Essential fitness equipment? (cardio, machines, weights, etc.)
    - Fitness services?
    - Other services? (ex.: Juice bar, esthetician services, therapeutic massage, etc.?)
    - Miscellaneous (ex.: Sofa, brightly/darkly lit, other physical or environmental aspects you'd really dig)

    Please bear in mind, this is for a personalized studio so the space is limited to around 450 sq. feet.

    Any serious and detailed answers will be much appreciated! Thanks!

    I'm very much a fan of CrossFit-style garage gyms.

    Music: Usually what's on my workout and running iPod playlists. This tends to be upbeat dance/pop tracks for cardio and metal/rock for weightlifting. Though lately I've been on a kick for heavy metal remixes of pop songs.

    Equipment: Squat rack, bench, barbells with bumper plates, a dumbell set (though it doesn't need to get past 50ish lbs), a kettlebell set, pullup station, gymnastics still rings, a rope hanging from the ceiling to climb, jump rope, maybe a sand bag, maybe a heavy punching bag

    Decor: Simple white walls will do. One wall should be a mirror to keep my form in check. Maybe motivational quotes on the wall here and there.
