If you want to work out at home and don’t want to have to think about a gym membership, a garden gym is a great choice. Many people would love a home gym but don’t have the extra space in their home to make it a reality. But with a garden gym, you have all the space you need to work out.
At Into the Garden Room, we design and build high-quality custom garden rooms for our customers in Kent and Surrey. Garden rooms can be used for a wide range of purposes, and garden gyms are very popular. Contact us today to find out more about how we can help you create your own outdoor garden gym.
Why Get a Garden Gym?
There is a lot to be said for having your own gym at home. There is no need to travel to the gym and no worries about paying for an expensive gym membership. But you need to have a suitable space to convert into a gym, somewhere with enough space for all your equipment. And that’s where a garden gym becomes a great idea.
A garden gym consists of a timber building that has been converted into a gym. Once your timber building has been put up, you can add any equipment you want including weights, a running machine, a cross trainer and anything else you want in your gym.
Another great thing about having a gym in your garden is that you won’t bother anyone else in your home. Gyms can be noisy places, but when your gym is in the garden, anyone else living in your home won’t be disturbed.
Finally, you get to enjoy working out in pleasant surroundings. Many of our garden buildings have large windows or openings so you can look out upon your garden and get inspiration as you work out.
Not all garden gyms in the UK are the same, and that’s why people choose Into the Garden Room. We are the experts in garden buildings, and we’ll be delighted to help you design and create a quality garden gym.
All our garden gyms are custom. If you have a particular size, shape or design that you want, we can build it for you. Whether you want a small gym in the corner of your garden, or a large gym in the centre with separate rooms, we can help.
Our garden rooms are made to the very highest standards and from the highest quality timber. We also use techniques that have been perfected over many years to ensure your outdoor gym is designed to last.
Because of this, they are also comfortable to use. Our garden gyms are insulated so you can enjoy your gym in complete comfort all year round. These are comfortable buildings that are a real joy to use.
And if you decide you no longer want to use it as a gym, you can simply convert the space to use it for another purpose. Our garden rooms are used as summer houses, garden offices, playrooms, yoga studios and many other things.
We’re a friendly and passionate bunch, and we love garden rooms of all kinds. We love working with our customers and helping them create their dream garden gyms, and we look forward to helping you too!
Building a garden gym follows a similar process to building any garden room. However, it’s important to make sure the floor is strong enough to withstand the use of heavy equipment. You will want to make sure your gym is large enough for all the equipment you plan to use, and you may even want to consider a separate shower or changing area for extra comfort.
Whats a good size for a garden gym?Sasha Mitchell2022-12-16T11:00:44+00:00
Garden gyms can be any size you want, but they must be under 10m x 10m if you don’t want to apply for planning permission. However, they don’t have to be this large. In general, a garden gym of 3m x 3m is about the smallest you will probably want it to be. 5m x 4m is probably more common, but it depends on how you will use it and the size of equipment you want it to keep inside.
Do you need planning for a garden gym?Sasha Mitchell2023-12-14T17:44:03+00:00
Like any type of garden building, a garden gym does not require planning permission as long as it meets specific requirements. Garden gyms are permitted developments, but your garden gym should be no larger than 10m x 10m, the eaves should be a maximum of 2.5 metres high, the overall height should be under 4 metres with a dual pitched roof or 3 metres with any other roof. If it is located within 2 metres of a property boundary, it should have a maximum height of 2.5 metres.
Can I build a gym in my garden?Sasha Mitchell2023-09-13T11:15:29+00:00
Yes, this is a very popular use for a garden room. As long as the garden building is made to a high quality and is strong enough to be used for your workouts, it’s a great option. Many of our models, like The Dawn, can be used as garden gyms.

“Absolutely delighted with my garden room. It has transformed my garden and added an extra living space that is enjoyed by all my family and friends. Andy and Paul were brilliant to work with and I would highly recommend them, as not only were they professional and efficient, they were a pleasure to deal with. Thank you so much for creating my dream garden space.”
Having had our room completed last week, we cannot speak highly enough of the entire service from Into the Garden room, from the initial consultation with Paul, right through the design, planning stages and to the choices of finishes and through to the onsite build team.
When the team came to install we were was blown away by how efficient knowledgeable and helpful they were, they communicated the whole process and talked us through every stage and also were able to fully maximise the space I had and even tweaked the designs for us.
Superb advice, unbelievably hard-working and had it wrapped up in 5 weeks.
It was a significant investment however worth every penny! Highly highly recommended.
Paul and Mel, Molesey, Surrey
Very Pleased – We engaged with Into The Garden Room shortly after we moved house. We wanted a space where we could build an office for remote working. We contacted Paul who visited us and sent us a proposal with costings. When we were ready to commence the team turned up on time, worked hard, and were both polite and professional. The project took about 6 weeks in total, and we were left with just what we had asked for, a beautiful solution that sits perfectly at the bottom of the garden.
