Over the course of the pandemic, we all had to radically change the way we lived our lives.
The challenges we faced during those extended lockdown-restrictions massively affected the way we went about our lives.
From how we worked and shopped, to how we interacted with our friends, family, and others around us. We had to sacrifice the simple things that we previously took for granted.
It kept us out of the pubs and restaurants, and even stopped us from using our gym memberships.
For many of us, however, those imposed changes have made us think about how we lived our lives before the pandemic and perhaps made us reassess what really makes us happy.
From entertaining friends and family and home working, to shopping and keeping fit, having once had to do things differently has made us think about how we want to do them now!
One trend where we have seen a huge increase in demand is a home gym, and a bespoke Haon garden gym is absolutely perfect for this.
In this article we look at the benefits of home gyms and how they can have a positive impact on our lives.
Like everything at the moment, gym membership fees are steadily increasing, and are now becoming an expensive monthly outgoing.
Factor in a family membership, it’s not uncommon to be paying over £200 a month for a family of 4 to belong to a club.
With your own private garden gym, there are no fees, saving you money each and every month.
With many of us having busy and chaotic lifestyles with so many ‘other’ things to do, finding the time to go to the gym sometimes gets moved down the priority list and left for another day.
In fact, with many gyms closed after 10pm, often the times you want to work-out are the same times as what seems like every other member!
When you have your own garden room gym, keeping fit can slide smoothly into your busy schedule and you can train whenever you like, even in the middle of the night or the early hours of the morning.
So, there is no excuse not to work out!
Perhaps one thing that lockdown has changed is our attitude to being around a lot of people, and that includes having to queue for things.
Many of us spend a lot of our gym time waiting to use our favourite piece of equipment or the next machine on our list.
With your garden room home gym, there are no lines, no crowds, and no waiting for your favourite workout station.
And don’t forget, your own gym will always give you that private space with no interruptions so you can just get on with what you like doing best.
Gym equipment is often big and heavy and can take up a lot of space in the home. Also, it can sometimes require extra height or specialised flooring for activities such as lifting weights.
It’s difficult to utilise a room in the house like a bedroom, so having a dedicated space where you can have all your equipment within easy access is one of the most incentivised reasons for a bespoke garden gym.
Designed with certain activities in mind, a garden gym can be built to accommodate all your favourite exercise equipment, including areas for practices like yoga or Pilates.
In addition, a bespoke garden gym is the perfect place to have your friends over to work out with you, the way you like. Or bring in that personal trainer to make you sweat, away from other gym prying-eyes.
Garden rooms can be the perfect solution for a home gym.
