I would soften up some of the surfaces, you can use a few rugs with good back gripping, maybe set your equipment on rugs, or place one beside each piece, you could add a few soft chairs with pillows and brighten up the space with like an ocean blue wall and paint the rest sand color. It would be so pretty and relaxing. A few peaceful ocean pics on the walls and you'll have a paradise to work out in.
You might could use fabric wall hanging to soften the space.
You could even make a scrap wood wall like this to add a natural element. https://www.hometalk.com/diy/decorate/walls/how-to-install-a-scrap-wood-wall-3254469
