Why You Need a Home Gym in 2021

A Gym in Your Garden

Without a doubt, the festive season of 2020-2021 has given us all the reason to indulge more than ever. With most of the UK in a lockdown of sorts for most of the year and into Christmas, we’ve all needed a way to cheer up and find a way to make the most of the situation. Eat, drink and be merry, right?!

New years always gives us the opportunity for a fresh start (something we all need after last year!) A garden gym is the ultimate fitness kick and the perfect opportunity to make your health and fitness a lifestyle priority for 2021.




Save Time and Money

On average, 23% of Britons pay for a gym membership which costs around £40 per month. According to studies, only 12% of those visits the gym regularly. That means that over £369 million is wasted monthly on unused gym memberships.

Investing in a garden gym will save waste on a monthly gym membership and will also help with your motivation. With your gym in the comfort of your garden, the incentive and motivation to exercise will increase.

Not only will you be saving money on wasted gym memberships but you will also be saving commuting to and from the gym. With the average gym commute being 8 miles there and back, that is a huge chunk of time out of your day spent either in the car, on a bike or public transport. The distance your gym is from home plays a massive part in how often you attend the gym. Imagine the ease and convenience of a 30-second walk to your gym.



Private and Safe

Your garden gym is a completely controlled space, just for you and your household (should you choose to let them in that is!). The hygiene and safety concerns of the gym are not a factor with your own private garden gym. Being a private space means no queues for machines, no waiting lists for classes and complete privacy to focus on your fitness goals.

At Your Pace

It’s a known fact that a large majority of us despise going to the gym because we feel embarrassed exercising in front of others, especailly when your new! Is everyone looking at me? Am I doing this wrong?

A study showed that 65% of women avoid the gym for fear of judgement. Social anxiety is a huge factor behind why many of us avoid the gym which is easily altered with the investment of a garden gym.

Exercise in your own time and to your own pace without the fear of being judged. Take your time getting used to complicated gym equipment and learn how to use them properly and safely without feeling pressured to rush. It is also important to invest in gym equipment that will work for you, instead of feeling intimidated to use equipment that won’t benefit your needs.


Open When You’re Ready

Having your own garden gym means you can work out at a time that suits you. Early bird or night owl, having your own gym means you can maximise your workout to suit when you are feeling most motivated. What’s more, with a private home gym there are no closures as a result of lockdown measures!


A New Business Venture

If you’re a veteran gym-goer who wants to turn your passion into opportunity, why not consider investing in a garden gym which you can use to start personal training services? This is an excellent way to increase your return on investment. The appeal of a home gym is also extremely high for potential clients. Knowing that they can be trained in the privacy of a garden gym, instead of under the glaring eyes of a public gym will draw clients in.
