We all know that exercise is beneficial to our health, but with our busy lives, it may be difficult to find the time to go to the gym. With our
ever-growing to-do lists, a Work-Out is often put at the bottom of the priority list. Our world is forced to change from what has been our
“normal” during unpredictable times, such as the present Coronavirus crisis we are currently experiencing. We now have the opportunity
to ponder and reevaluate our lives. Our priorities may begin to shift during these meditative times.
Garden gyms currently account for a substantial portion of our annual projects. Gyms of all forms and sizes, designed to fit a variety of

We’ve compiled a list of reasons why utilising a garden room as a home exercise area is a great idea.
During a lockdown, use the exercise space.
Coronavirus lockdown…how could this term not be on our list right now? All public gyms have closed as a result of the present global
crisis, forcing families to obtain their daily exercise from a single walk, run, or bike ride close to home. We’re witnessing an increase in
families building garden gyms, much like many of our garden office customers. They have a safe haven, a place where they can both
work out and keep their spirits up.
Add a home office to the mix.
The beauty of our garden rooms, as we’ve said before, is in their flexibility. Many of our customers integrate a combined office area within
their gym facilities.
Our highly insulated rooms are completely customizable. With proper planning and design, your garden room will be future-proofed as an
extension to your family home that may be used for a variety of purposes as needed.
Many individuals would prefer to wear their lycra in private than in public unless they are completely ‘buff’ and have a strong six pack to
show! For us, working out isn’t always the most enjoyable group activity. You not only gain your solitude, but you also avoid having to
share germs, sweat, and equipment with others when you have your own private gym.
Select the workout that best fits your needs.
Your room is completely unique and may be outfitted with any equipment you like.
A simple room with free weights and a gym mat may serve as a garden gym for a single customer. Their gym may include a home office,
shower area, and toilet for the next customer.
We may need to assist you in obtaining planning approval for a higher structure (some exercise machines such as cross trainers demand
extra height, meaning you may no longer be able to build your gym under permitted development rights). Some customers want air
conditioning, reinforced flooring, and mounting points on the wall… Our staff will assist you in designing your building in your own unique
There are no membership fees, so it’s a long-term investment.
We understand that a high-quality garden gym is an expensive purchase. Any garden room is, in the end, a continuation of your house.
You’re adding usable room to your house, which will increase its worth. When you consider the money you’ll save on membership fees,
it’s easy to understand why this is a tempting purchase.
There are no travel or time restrictions.
A gym at the end of your garden walk saves you time and money by reducing the amount of time and money you spend travelling to the
gym, resulting in a significant decrease in your carbon footprint. You also have the advantage of being able to workout whenever it is
convenient for you. There will be no longer time restrictions. If you feel like working out at 4 a.m., you can! Overall, it’s a win-win situation.
There will be no more excuses.
The flexibility and convenience of having an extra insulated room in your yard allows you to wave goodbye to excuses and welcome to a
new you! It may help you get in shape since it eliminates the inconvenience of going to the gym and some of the mental hurdles that keep
you from developing a healthy routine of regular exercise at a traditional gym.
