Prioritizing Your Health: Convert Your Shed into a Personal Gym

Health is wealth, but it can be hard to work out. Getting in a good workout often takes a backseat to family, work, children, and personal errands. The nearest gym might be a drive away, or your favorite spin class overlaps with school pick-up. 

Fortunately, you can create a personal gym steps away from your home! You can have your own space, giving you the privacy you need to work out and carve time for self-care. The best part is you can work out anytime, whether at 6 AM or 8 PM.

The answer is to convert your shed into a personal gym. A shed is a convenient way to get the extra space you need without building an extension to your home. Here are some tips on converting a shed to a personal gym:

1. When you have a shed ready to use as your personal gym, add windows.

If you buy a ready-made shed, it probably has a window or two already installed. However, if you plan to use the shed as a personal gym, you’ll want to add more windows to allow natural light in. Windows also let fresh air in, allowing it to be comfortable all year round.

2. Consult a professional electrician about your electrical needs.

Next, consult a professional electrician about hooking up your shed to a power source, allowing you to install lights, lamps, and electrical outlets. Once you start using your personal gym, you’ll likely spend a couple of hours a day, several times a week. Having ample lighting is vital when creating a conducive personal gym. Remember that you want to avoid DIY anything when it comes to dealing with electricity. 

3. Add furniture, plants, and personal touches

Lastly, make the space your own by adding your favorite gym equipment, indoor plants, and decor that reflects your personality. Of course, ample space in the middle to work out is a must. Add some motivational quotes, picture frames, and easy-to-maintain indoor plants to help inspire you to work out. With these final touches, we won’t be surprised if your personal gym is soon one of your favorite areas of your home!
