Every day now, more and more of us are spending all day at home, juggling the airspace with partners, kids and pets who are also all staying inside.
While we all adjust to this new normal, it’s important to keep some of our daily routines in place. There’s never been a more important time to invest in our mental & physical fitness.
With gyms & fitness centres closed across the country, and winter weather closing in, most of us are finding it hard to fit in our daily workout.
Meet the Backyard Home Gym Setup
A separate, dedicated space to workout. Away from the noise and distractions of family, and just a few steps from your home.
The importance of exercise
With the world feeling a bit out of our control, now is the perfect time to take control of our health & fitness by building daily exercise into our schedules.
A dedicated workout space in your own backyard gym shed
Pilates and yoga expert Ellen Barrett recommends creating a comfortable, dedicated space that you can leave set up & ready for your daily workout. “I have a yoga mat always laid out…ready for me to meditate in or do light stretching or do more intense barefoot workouts”.1
This is why a backyard Home Gym setup is so popular with Aussie homeowners. It’s close to your home, but completely separate. You can have your equipment always set up & ready to go, without having to pack it all away to make space for something else.
And the best bit? This space is multipurpose.
Carolyn uses her Melwood as a multipurpose Home Gym + Hobby Space. She says “During nice weather, I open up the French doors and overlook the gardens. At other times, I keep it closed, roll up the blinds and still enjoy the lovely outlook. Thanks again for my wonderful cabana!”
Melwood Garden Rooms are secure, sturdy buildings which are built to comply with Building Standards, and comfortable enough to spend time in, year-round! They can be used in a range of ways to suit your family’s current needs. Study space? Home Office? Storage Area? Movie Room – or perhaps a ‘Sanctuary away from the house’ – which is exactly what Ben & his wife use theirs for!
Ben’s home gym is the Mod Cabana No.18. He says “it’s used as a backyard gym mostly, though it also serves as a sanctuary away from the house (and the kids!!)”
