No more excuses when the gym is on your doorstep!

by TG Escapes | Oct 31, 2013 | Blog, Residential

We all know the feeling. You’re tired after a long day’s work, cold after struggling home in the dark and all you are craving is a hot drink and a night curled up on the sofa. But Christmas is approaching, with its glittering parties, little black dresses and extravagant meals and despite your wish to stay in your cosy home, you force yourself to bundle up, drive to the gym and wait for your favourite machine to become available. Wouldn’t it be easier if instead you could step out of your back door and enter a luxury workout space with no queues or fees… ?

Only steps from your family home, a garden gym lets you swap the stresses of training in a traditional gym environment for a space that’s exclusively yours. Designed around your needs, your workout space can include floor mounted sockets, heat reflective glazing, absorbing ‘Regupol’ flooring and many other bespoke features to create a training space that rivals any professional gym. Equipped with showers and changing facilities your workout space can become a sanctuary at the bottom of your garden, where you can escape the stresses of daily life and concentrate on you.

As well as providing a space where you can train at your own pace, surrounded by the beautiful views of your garden, recent research has shown that regular exercise can boost your immune system by boosting the bacteria-fighting cells in your body, better equipping you to resist colds and flu this winter. Without the need to fit your schedule around your gym’s opening times, you can work out as many times a week as you like, whether before work, in the evening or at the weekend.

The Odunsis were keen to create an outdoor space where the whole family could train. Inspired by the natural beauty of their garden, full-height windows and bi-folding doors allow them to enjoy their environment as they exercise. No matter how cold or dark it is outside their gym’s walls, the family can work out together in comfort at times that suit their busy lifestyle.
