The Odunsi family can enjoy working out from home with natural inspiration. Mr Odunsi tells us how their Garden Escape has helped them become healthier and happier.

Why did you want to develop a Garden Escape?

My family and I are all big exercise fans so we wanted to create a garden room that could be used as an outdoor gym. We wanted to make the most of our beautiful garden and use it as inspiration for an active, healthy outdoor space. We were keen to keep the gym separate from the house but still a part of our home.

What were the key elements that made The Garden Escape stand out from other providers?

We were immediately drawn by the quality of the products provided by The Garden Escape. Our outdoor gym is built to last and the natural elements of it help it blend perfectly into our garden. The Garden Escape went above and beyond to work around aspects that we thought might be a problem. We wanted our garden room to be built over a stream and the team found a way to make it work. We also had to get English Heritage involved because of our proximity to an old water course at Hampton Court Palace, The Garden Escape took care of all the paperwork.

What are the biggest benefits you’ve noticed, both for you and your family, from your Garden Escape?

Our Garden Escape has given us the flexibility to work out from home without using up crucial space in the bedrooms or office. The outdoors acts as a great exercise motivator and when we open up the bi-folding doors we can feel as though we’re doing it right in the middle of our natural surroundings.The garden gym has inspired us to be more active and healthy and we can all enjoy it together. It looks fantastic within our grounds and we know it is going to last long into the future.

”Now we don’t need to go traipsing to the nearest busy gym, we can simply step out into our beautiful garden and enjoy exercising at home."
