Garden Gym – Concave Room 8m x 4m

Are you looking to get fitter but can’t get to the gym? Do you hate the idea of working out in public or just don’t want to throw money away on monthly gym fees? Can’t quite build up the momentum to leave the house?

A fully equipped garden gym within metres of your house could be the answer!

Garden gym - side view

Hilary from Middlesborough decided that a brand new, purpose built garden gym was just what her family needed, and so she contacted Modern Garden Rooms for a quote.


The garden gym building was an 8m x 4m concave room, clad in cedar, with a height of 2.7m instead of the standard 2.5m.

Despite the extra height, this build was still within permitted development, as the gym was built at least 2m from boundaries. This meant it did not require planning permission.

Client Name:

Hilary from Middlesborough, North Yorkshire


Hilary’s garden gym needed to be a fairly large space to fill the secluded area at the bottom of her garden.

The flooring of engineered oak was to be supplied by Hilary’s husband, and they wanted a wall of mirrored glass along one end.

Our Solution:

To provide extra privacy and seclusion whilst working out, we suggested a garden gym building based on our popular concave garden room.

This striking timber-clad garden room comes with a 1m canopy, as well as sides that extend past the entrance to the building, enclosing it.

The subtle downlighting in the canopy makes this type of building perfect for use in the evenings as well as during the day.

Garden gym - lit up side view

With two large French doors opening out onto a 2m decking area to the front of the garden gym, during the day the workout can be opened up to the outdoors in good weather.

The finished building was plastered and skimmed, with a mirror wall to one end, ready to be decorated and put straight to use!

We think that her new garden gym looks stunning at the end of Hilary’s large garden, and she’ll definitely never have an excuse not to hit the gym again!
