2021 Goal: Fitness and Wellbeing

6th January 2021
How a garden room can help with your 2021 New Years Resolutions Goals:

Fitness & Wellbeing


Get Fit & Get Healthy with a Garden Gym.

Probably the number one New Years Resolution – get fit or get healthy. 

After weeks of overindulging, as well as the continued lockdowns and winter hibernation, now is a great time to get focussed on our health and fitness.

Add Space:

Rather than taking up space inside your house, a garden building creates a whole new environment for you to stretch out into. Our garden buildings are so versatile that you can create a dual-purpose space, like a gym and garden office in one!



Your garden gym is your own private space for you to focus on your workout without the worry of anyone watching. What’s more, being a private space means no queues for equipment! 


Flexible Environment:

You can tailor the environment of your gym to suit your workout – crank up the volume to get in the zone or escape the hustle and bustle of the home for a relaxing wellness retreat.


Easy Incorporation to your Lifestyle:

Having a gym at home with all the equipment you need on hand, you are better placed to make your health and fitness part of your day to day life. The best way to make an ongoing success of your fitness goals is to incorporate them into your lifestyle.



A garden gym is at best a 30-second commute from your home, saving you time and money in getting to and from the gym. Plus, your garden gym can be open all-hours, letting you blow off some steam whenever works for you.



Your garden gym is a private space for you and your household (if you let them in that is!). The risk of transmitting and ultimately catching Covid-19 is greatly reduced because you have complete control of the environment.



Another point on safety, our buildings are constructed using toughened double-glazing and insurance grade locks, making them a safe and secure place to store your expensive and sought after gym equipment.

Insulated Garden Gyms

Making your fitness part of your lifestyle long term means working on it in every season. When it’s cold outside and summer seems a long time away, many of us lose sight of fitness plans and decide to hibernate instead.

Every building in the Green Retreats range is fully insulated for use all-year-round, meaning there are no excuses! What’s more every building comes with heating as standard to help take off the winter chill. We also offer optional upgrades of underfloor heating or air-conditioning for total temperature control.


Adaptable Space

A garden building is a highly adaptable space that can transform at a moment’s notice. Not only can you easily repurpose your building if your fitness plans go out the window, but you can also create a dual-purpose room to make the most of your new garden space – a popular choice is a gym/office combo for example.

Gym Ideas at our Showrooms

NEW Gym fit-out at the Buckinghamshire Showroom

Each of our showroom buildings is decorated to inspired a range of different uses. Home gyms are one of the most popular uses of our garden buildings, so at each of our showrooms we have a building fitted out for the purpose to help inspire your project.

In December 2020, we had a planned closure our Buckinghamshire showroom to make some improvements, and one of those improvements was a brand new interior fit-out of our gym building!

We worked with Velvaere Studios who designed and built the stunning new interior as a way to showcase to our customers what exactly could be done to make something really special inside their garden rooms.

Here is a sneak peek of the design whilst we wait for our showrooms to open and professional photography to come in:

Our garden rooms are priced based on the internal sizes rather than the exterior footprint, making it easier for you to plan your work space. A commercial unit from Green Retreats could end up saving you a fortune from the costs of renting a workspace alone. The price includes base, installation and VAT so there are no (nasty) surprises when it comes to final payment.
