The popularity of an at-home gym has skyrocketed in the last few years. This requires some cash upfront to get started with your set up but overall you will be saving on the monthly lifetime payment to attend a gym. This is great for anyone who wants to create a fueling habit and have no excuses because they do not have to drive anywhere to get their workout.
Here are some great tips from experts on creating an outdoor gym in your shed
To create that special workout space you can use an outdoor shed and turn it into a mini gym, yoga studio, or both depending on the shed size. You don’t even need electricity unless you want to have heat or an AC. Creating your own backyard gym is convenient and cost-effective.
“Turning your shed into a gym gives you space to step away from your living room and focus specifically on your workout. This can keep you more accountable vs being in your home and seeing all of the other tasks that need to get done. It eliminates drive time and therefore you can maximize your day. There are so many creative ways to create an inspirational space to achieve your workout goals.” – Tip by Tampa Realtor® Eve Alexander
“You can personalize all the equipment you like to use and hang things on the wall that are meaningful and encouraging for you. Oftentimes you can get your equipment from used sites or gyms that are selling old equipment to lower the cost. You could even just create a space that is equipment free if you are paying a subscription to workout videos and don’t need a lot of heavy lifting or equipment. It is all about creating a space that gives you a great mindset. All you need to do is decide on the size and amount of space you need so that you can start to look at your prefab sheds and what they can do for you.” – Tip by Pam Pester – Commercial real estate broker
