January. The month when we make new year’s resolutions, cut out alcohol and plan to get back into fitness. But instead of opting for a pricey gym membership, how about converting your garage into your very own gym?
In this blog, we’ll look at examples of where we have helped customer create their own fitness spaces ranging from complete home gyms to those specific to sports such as Golf or Cycling. Any questions or comments, do let us know on 01491 579975 or email us at email@example.com.
The “All-Rounder” Home Gym
This home gym was created for a customer in Stourbridge in November 2018. She wanted to turn her single garage into a fitness space for her and her daughter to use so the focus was on putting fitness equipment on the wall so that she had plenty of floor space. As you can see, bikes, tennis, balls, rollers, hoops and weights are now all fixed on the wall, opening up the space for bigger, stand alone, equipment.
A large mirror was installed as part of the wall installation as well as a tv to keep the customer motivated whilst working out. Finally, floor tiles were added as they give good traction and are an ideal base to work out on. To read the full case study, click here.
Another gym we completed back in 2016 was this all-rounder gym for a customer in Wales. The focus was on getting all their gym equipment into the small space, so storage was really important to clear the space. Again, floor tiles were added to the floor, our FlexiPanel was added to the walls and a good selection of storage accessories such as hobby racks, baskets and cabinets were installed.
Storage plus gym equipment
If you have stand alone gym equipment such as treadmills, rowing machines or cross trainers, then getting maximum clear floor space is key. This Exeter garage has storage to put items away but keeps things clear of the floor so you can really get your sweat on! To see the full case study click here.
Storing golf clubs is easy if you have a dedicated place for them. You will always know where they are when you need them, so you can spend more time decreasing your handicap than looking for your clubs. This image shows a garage installation we completed in Berkshire for a keen golfer who wanted to keep everything organised. The Golf Activity Centre makes storing your clubs on the wall easy and hooks can be used for your PowaKaddy too.
A great way to store your PowaKaddy with our double hooks as shown in this garage fit out in Kent.
Storage for your bikes
No place to store bikes on your wall? Then consider using your ceiling, if it is high enough, to store them instead. In this garage, completed in 2018, we installed extra long hoists so that the customer could easily lower and elevate his bikes when he wanted to. This is a great way to use all of the available space in your garage for storage.
This garage owner really had the cycling bug and wanted his bikes to be centre stage in his garage. The whole garage was fitted out with wall panel, floor tiles, overhead ceiling racks and of course storage racks for his bikes. We used our Vertical Bike Racks which are very easy to use and put the bike on. Plus it displays them quite nicely too!
Other sports storage ideas
Scooters and kids bikes can be attached to the garage walls via hooks and brackets too once you have our FlexiPanel fitted to the garage wall. This photo shows Garageflex MD Alastair Broom with the fantastic Sarah Beeney. We designed and fitted out this garage as part of Sarah’s Double Your House TV programme. Click here to find out more.
