Fitness goals are personal, so it makes sense that some of us would rather do it in private. Add that to the fact that gym vibes aren’t for everyone, and that backyard shed starts to look really attractive.
Will my existing shed work for a home gym?
You have to consider whether the existing shed is what you need or whether you need to invest in a custom shed from Custom Sheds Unlimited.
How much space do I need?
An 8×8 is the smallest you can go and still be able to work out. In comparison, a shed 18×10 feet has enough room for a cross trainer, free weights, a rowing machine, and some.
How tall should the ceiling of a gym shed be?
The average height of a human is 5’9, which would make a 9′ ceiling adequate. But, if you want room for jumping jacks and weight racks, you want to go higher.
What type of walls should it have?
High walls will give you more space on the inside.
What are the roofing needs for a shed gym?
Quality roofing is what protects you and your equipment from the elements. It needs to be durable and provide longevity.
You don’t want the searing heat of the summer or the chilling cold of winter to keep you away from the shed gym retreat—the better the insulation, the better the protection from the weather that wants to slow you down.
What are the flooring options for a shed gym?
The floor takes a beating when we are exercising, which makes choosing the right one so important.
Standard Wooden Flooring
Treadmills and low-impact exercising equipment won’t do too much damage to standard wooden flooring.
Heavy-duty flooring may provide more durability than standard wooden if you plan to use heavyweight benches.
Obviously, a concrete floor is ideal for a gym shed. It can take a beating and still hold up.
How can I turn my garden shed into a home gym?
