What is a Garden Gym Room?

A garden gym is a structure, typically made mostly from wooden panels, built in your garden that provides you with an opportunity to get fit and stay healthy. The room can include typical exercise equipment like weight benches, barbells, dumbbells, kettle bells and running machines. It’s also great for fitness programs like pilates and yoga. By making this space available to yourself at home, you will be more likely to work out regularly because it will always be there waiting for you when the time comes!

What are the benefits of using a garden gym?

With the rising cost of living, many people are turning to home gym equipment for an affordable way to stay in shape. One great option is a garden gym room. A garden gym room is essentially a space that can be built or converted into your very own private exercise area outside of your house.

Why Build a Garden Gym Room?

Garden gyms are becoming popular because they provide an alternative form of physical fitness without having to go somewhere else – all you need is some free time and the will power to work out at home. By using your own garden as an extension of your workout area, you’ll have unlimited access to workout equipment, whenever suits your schedule.

Different types of equipment to use in your garden gym

The importance of physical fitness is often overlooked in the everyday life. However, it’s important to maintain good physical health and mental wellbeing for yourself and your family. The garden gym can be a way to get exercise while working on projects that will reap benefits in the future. There are many different types of equipment you can use in your garden gym; here are some examples:

A small bench press might be used for lifting weights or other items around the house. It could also be used as extra seating when necessary or even as an anchor point for more intense exercises like pull ups

A stationary bike provides low impact aerobic exercise which is perfect if you’re looking to burn calories without stressing your joints too much

A rowing machine, which are great for full body muscle exercises, and require very little floor space

How much space do you need for a garden gym?

Space doesn’t seem to be an issue when we go to the gym. If you’re lucky enough to have a big garden with plenty of grassy area then by all means enjoy the benefits of having your own little workout arena. However, if you don’t have that luxury and would rather save money on monthly fees at the local fitness club, here are some ideas on how much space is needed for a typical garden gym:

A 5m x 4m space is optimal for most garden gyms, providing enough room to work out efficiently with some extra breathing room.
