NFL legend Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski is getting into the world of fitness design, Gimme Shelter has learned.
The Super Bowl champion finally retired this year after nine seasons with the New England Patriots, followed by two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Now, the former tight end and Buffalo-area native has designed a gym inside the Parker, a luxury condo offering turnkey residences in Boston.
It marks the first time that family-founded Gronk Fitness is designing a private gym inside a residential condo.
The gym is 1,300 square feet in size.

The event raised nearly $1.4 million that night and featured an exhibition viewing of Cubism and the Trompe l’Oeil Tradition — and cocktails — followed by dinner.
The NYC parties didn’t end there.
