Turn your Garden Room into a Summer Gym

Picture the scene. It’s 6am, it’s horrendously dark and cold and guess what, you promised yourself you’d go to the gym. It’s a pretty dire scenario in the winter months and pulling yourself out of bed, into the car and away to the gym can be a mammoth task.

Well, what if we told you that it doesn’t have to be this way? There’s a world out there where you can minimise the toil and trouble that heading to the gym can create.

Enter – the summer gym! Yes, you can bring your gym into your garden, which means that it’s just a hop, skip and a jump from your house to your garden room and you can work out in peace, without the traffic jam.

Tranquil and Peaceful

One of the worst things about the gym is other people. Having to wait for equipment or hear someone’s annoying music while you work out can make going to the gym an unpleasant experience.

Looking out onto your garden while you train and having the pick of the equipment in your summer gym limits those little annoyances and makes it a more relaxed activity. Position your gym so you can look outside, with the help of glazing panels and bifolding doors. Even on colder days, you can enjoy the outdoors, indoors.


You probably have your own set exercises and equipment that you like to work out with in the gym and everyone is different. By bringing your gym into your garden room, you can create the perfect, individual gym for your own needs and not have to spend money on a membership full of equipment you don’t use.

There’s also lots of space to mix and match. Whether you’re into yoga, boxing, dancing etc, there are no rules when it comes to your garden gym, you can include whatever you like and ditch the status quo of a traditional gym. With reinforced flooring and strengthened walls and ceilings, you can attach mounts and brackets easily.


Not everyone likes working out next to other people and this can be for a whole range of personal reasons. It can be very daunting and overwhelming to go to a gym when you’re not confident, so having a garden gym gives you much needed privacy for you to improve your fitness or just feel comfortable in a gym environment for once.

It’s perfect for inviting other friends around who might not like the gym environment or you can enlist the help of a personal trainer without prying eyes in a gym. Your garden gives you a peaceful, relaxed and non-judgemental place for you to exercise.


Most of all, it’s incredibly easy to motivate yourself to go to the gym because you don’t have to travel far and you don’t have to spend money each year on a membership you might not use. If you’re looking to get fit quick or just practice some self-care, you’ve got the perfect place to exercise and have fun in.
