Welcome to Garden & Rooms, the premier construction company in Manchester, UK, dedicated to creating exceptional Garden Rooms, Garden Studios, and Garden Offices. As part of our mission to provide year-round solutions and expand our service offerings, we are thrilled to introduce our latest addition: The Garden Gym.
Imagine having your very own private gym nestled in the tranquility of your garden. A place where you can exercise, stay fit, and rejuvenate without leaving the comfort of your home. At Garden & Rooms, we understand the importance of physical health and well-being, and our Garden Gym service is designed to bring this wellness experience right to your doorstep.
Just about everyone in the UK understands the value of staying fit, but few have the time to head to the gym every day. Building a garden gym provides the perfect solution for many homeowners today.
Homeowners can have a garden room installed right in their backyards. Garden rooms are perfectly suited for use as home gyms. Garden rooms are large enough to accommodate fitness equipment and stoutly insulated enough for year-round use. Additionally, unlike a home gym inside the primary domicile, they provide plenty of privacy and make a great choice for staying fit all year round.
If you need more room for your workouts, you can find out everything you need to know about using garden gyms as a contemporary space below.
Why Choose a Garden Gym?
The Garden Gym is more than just a space to work out – it is a personal sanctuary where you can focus on your fitness goals, escape the distractions of the outside world, and enjoy a harmonious connection with nature. Here are some compelling reasons why a Garden Gym is the perfect addition to your outdoor space:
Convenient and Accessible: Having a Garden Gym means having the ultimate convenience of exercising whenever you desire. No more commuting to crowded gyms or adhering to rigid schedules. With your Garden Gym just a few steps away, you have the freedom to work out at your preferred time and pace. This accessibility encourages consistency and makes fitness an integral part of your daily routine.
Serene and Inspiring Atmosphere: Exercising in nature has proven benefits for both physical and mental well-being. A Garden Gym offers a serene and inspiring environment where you can connect with nature while pursuing your fitness goals. The soothing sounds of birds chirping, the fresh outdoor air, and the calming greenery create an invigorating and uplifting ambiance for your workouts.
Personalized Fitness Space: Your Garden Gym is entirely customizable to cater to your specific fitness preferences. Whether you enjoy yoga, weightlifting, cardio, or meditation, we can design a Garden Gym that aligns with your fitness routine. With dedicated space for your equipment and exercise activities, your Garden Gym becomes a personalized fitness sanctuary tailored to your needs.
Privacy and Focus: A Garden Gym provides the privacy and focus necessary for a distraction-free workout. You can exercise without the prying eyes of strangers, ensuring a comfortable and judgment-free environment. This privacy allows you to concentrate on your fitness journey and achieve your goals at your own pace.
Year-Round Fitness: Unlike traditional outdoor exercise spaces that are weather-dependent, our Garden Gym is designed to be used year-round. We utilize premium materials and insulation to ensure your Garden Gym remains comfortable and functional, no matter the season. Rain or shine, you can maintain your fitness routine and stay active throughout the year.
Can I Build a Gym in My Garden?
To start, garden offices used as a gym take less room and are an affordable solution to build a garden gym. For those who already have a garden room, the cost of converting it will be next to nothing. Even installing a new garden room or converting an existing garden office is quite affordable. Summer houses can also be used as a gym, so put the cookies away and select one of our quality products.
In most cases, it’s also completely legal to build a gym in a home garden environment. The UK recently relaxed its building regulations surrounding detached structures; therefore most homeowners won’t need planning permission. In rare cases where planning permission is required, Garden & Rooms can help homeowners navigate the requisite government bureaucracy.
Price may be an issue for some UK residents. Those with a history of positive consumer credit activities should ask about our special financing options. Garden & Rooms’ affordable pricing means a personal garden gym will fit well within most homeowners’ budgets.
It’s also possible to get better deals on garden rooms than those offered by big-name and established businesses such as Crown Pavilions or Swift Garden Rooms. A Garden & Rooms garden gym will be constructed to the same exacting standards, but in the grand scope of things, costs considerably less than these expensive residential products.
How Big Does a Garden Gym Need to Be?
The answer is simple. A garden gym needs to be large enough to accommodate gym gear but small enough to have a reasonable building footprint. The average garden building is large enough for this heavy equipment purpose and comes with low maintenance. The purpose-built design can give you the best family space with some extra storage room as well.
Those whose garden affairs take up a lot of room may not have room for a full-sized garden building. In this case, home gym users may need to make some concessions. Try purchasing a multi gym instead of single-purpose gym gear and leave the cookies at the supermarket.
If your intention is to use the garden room as a yoga studio doubled as a home gym? Make sure to accommodate that intended use during the design phase. A yoga studio will need more room in the floor plan than a standard garden gym.
Even a small home gym should have a footprint of at least nine square metres, which is enough room for essential workout equipment, stretching, and indoor exercises. Gyms intended for use by multiple people at the same time will need to be larger. Garden & Rooms home gyms are designed to accommodate diverse and large equipment such as squat racks, treadmills, and bench weights.
Designing Your Dream Garden Gym
At Garden & Rooms, we believe in creating personalized and functional spaces that enrich your lifestyle. Our Garden Gym service is fully customizable to suit your preferences and fitness requirements. Here are some key features and design elements that we offer to design your dream Garden Gym:
Layout and Space Optimization: Our expert team will carefully assess your garden’s layout and available space to design a Garden Gym that maximizes functionality and aesthetics.

Premium Flooring and Surfaces: A suitable flooring surface is crucial for any gym space. We offer a selection of premium flooring options, such as rubber, vinyl, or wooden flooring, that are durable, slip-resistant, and easy to maintain. The right flooring ensures safety during workouts and provides a comfortable surface for various exercises.
Natural Lighting and Ventilation: To create an energizing and inviting atmosphere, we strategically incorporate natural lighting and ventilation into your Garden Gym. Large windows, skylights, or sliding doors allow abundant natural light, while proper ventilation ensures a refreshing airflow during your workouts.
Fitness Equipment Selection: We can assist you in selecting the right fitness equipment based on your preferences and fitness goals. From cardio machines to free weights, our Garden Gym can be equipped with everything you need for a well-rounded workout routine.
Mirrors and Storage: Mirrors are essential for proper form during exercises, and we can install full-length mirrors or mirrored walls to enhance your workouts. Additionally, we can include storage solutions for your equipment, towels, and fitness accessories, keeping your Garden Gym organized and clutter-free.
Entertainment and Connectivity: Your Garden Gym can be equipped with audio systems, speakers, or TV screens to keep you motivated during workouts. With a seamless connection to your favorite fitness apps or online classes, you can enjoy a diverse range of exercise routines from the comfort of your Garden Gym.

How Do I Turn My Shed Into a Gym?
The average garden shed is not suitable for conversion into a gym, at least not one intended for year-round use. Most sheds have little to no insulation and even less space. They’re designed for accommodating the ordinary garden affair and not working out. Speaking about a page from garden affairs, you’ll love the price of our gyms designed with plenty of floor space.
Those with larger than average garden sheds and plenty of time and money to invest in converting them may find that it’s not an impossible project. Moreover, it takes more than basic hand tools and good intentions to transform a garden shed into a fully functional workout space.
Here’s a general idea of what it will take:
- Adding insulation to the walls, floor, and roof
- Sealing any air leaks to prevent moisture problems and regulate temperature
- Replacing shed windows with double-glazed alternatives
- Installing a larger door to get gym equipment inside
- Hiring an electrician to wire the shed for electrics
- Installing climate control for year-round use
- Making any other minor changes required to accommodate expensive equipment and the space needed to get in a good workout
Building a specialised garden gym is a much better option than eating a handful of cookies. Homeowners can have a garden gym built by the specialized contractors at Garden & Rooms for less than it would cost to renovate their sheds themselves.
Companies like Crown Pavilions and Swift Garden Rooms also offer similar services, but they tend to be more expensive. Garden & Rooms believes the average UK family deserves access to luxurious detached structures just as much as their wealthy peers.
Can You Keep a Multi Gym Outside?
It is never wise to keep expensive equipment like multi-gyms outside. The equipment is not designed to withstand extreme temperatures, moisture, and inclement weather. Moving parts will stop functioning, and the metal will eventually rust.
UK property owners who don’t have space for a home gym inside their primary dwellings have a better option than just Crown Pavilions and Swift Garden Rooms. They can install a garden room from Garden & Rooms.
Additionally, besides keeping expensive gym equipment safe, garden rooms also offer the following benefits:
- It’s easy to convert a garden gym into a garden office, yoga studio, or other functional space.
- It costs less to build a dedicated garden gym than to pay for constant equipment maintenance, repairs, and replacements.
- A garden gym can be used even when the weather is poor.
- Menu-menu garden rooms can be climate controlled.
- Professional garden gym installation is quick and easy.
- Many garden room installation businesses offer better deals than the expensive options offered by Crown Pavilions.
- Garden rooms offer far more privacy than backyard workout sessions.
- Fitness enthusiasts won’t be distracted by kids or nosy neighbours in a garden gym.
Homeowners who are on the fence about installing a dedicated garden gym can contact Garden & Rooms. A company representative will outline costs and discuss custom garden room additions that make the space perfect for home workouts.
Equipment Use for Garden Gym Buildings
Property owners who keep their fitness gear and machines outdoors or in primitive garden shelters have minimal choices. They can only buy devices designed to withstand constant sun exposure, rain, and frost. Having a garden gym room opens up tons of options for fitness enthusiasts just like our double glazed bi-folding doors.
Most Popular Workout Gear for Garden Buildings
Home fitness enthusiasts can keep just about any gym gear in a garden gym building. That includes heavy equipment with a reasonable footprint, such as weights and more specialised exercise gear.
Popular options include:
- Spin bikes
- Cross trainer
- Slam balls
- Yoga accessories
- And more
It’s always best to buy from a manufacturer registered in England because much like your favourite cookies, being made in the UK matters. Garden & Rooms structures are outfitted with the best garden gym room amenities and accessories that Euros can buy. There’s plenty of room and finance options with our innovative and elegant garden gyms..

Gym Design Considerations
Homeowners who know they will be using their new detached structure as a gym room should keep that intended use in mind during the design phase. There’s no need to add all the amenities found in log cabins or full-sized homes, but a few extras won’t hurt.
First, make sure the model includes bi-fold doors. It will make getting large items in and out of the building much more manageable. Unlike gazebo models, a garden gym building is completely enclosed. That means fitness enthusiasts will have to move their gear in through the door, and a bi-fold makes all the difference.
Second, take a look at available models. Choose one that is large enough to accommodate not just gear but also floor exercise. A 5m x building should be large enough without taking up too much garden space. If 5m x is too large, it’s also possible to construct a smaller garden gym building that fits the site.
Finally, consider amenities. Will the gym need a shower room or water cooler? If so, the building will need to be outfitted with a water supply and wastewater lines. These amenities may also take up extra space in the gym room and may require additional design considerations. Air conditioning should be considered a necessity rather than a luxury to avoid overheating.

Is a Detached Gym Worth the Money?
A detached gym with the right design can provide all kinds of benefits that make it worth the investment. Residents won’t have to pay gym fees, nor will they have to leave home to get a good workout.
With the right design, it’s also easy to make these detached buildings into multi-purpose spaces. For example, if the structure already has sufficient power and water for air conditioning and a shower, it can easily be converted into a spa.

Benefits of Building a Garden Gym
There are many benefits to building a garden room for use as a gym. These small buildings are affordable, rarely require planning permission, and add aesthetic, monetary, and practical value to the home.
Heading to the gym can be a hassle. It often requires making extra time in the day to drive to a far-away facility and deal with a ton of strangers. With a garden gym, there’s no stress attached. Knowing that all it takes to get in a quick workout is heading out to the backyard can be a great incentive to stick to that ambitious fitness schedule.
Some homeowners may be hesitant to build a garden gym because they’re afraid they’ll use it for a season then forget about it. Whilst the gym equipment can’t readily be repurposed, a well-built detached space certainly can. If they get bored with working out, homeowners can turn garden rooms into an artist’s studio, a garden office, or a green retreat.
The cost of constructing garden rooms varies significantly depending on the size, style, and tradie hired to install the building. The options offered by Crown Pavilions may require a large upfront investment, but Garden & Rooms offers plenty of budget-friendly models. Once it’s finished, the garden gym will add to property value and equity.
When modern families start to outgrow their homes, they often assume that the only options are to move to a different house or pay for an addition. Both of these options are impractical and quite costly. Building a garden room is much more affordable and practical since it resolves the need for extra space without requiring a massive investment of money or time.
There’s zero aesthetic appeal associated with letting gym equipment sit outside and rust. On the other hand, garden rooms can form a perfect complement to the main home and the landscape. Residents will appreciate the additional space, and if homeowners decide to sell, it could also attract more qualified buyers.
