Exercise is known to improve our mood, reduce the risk of major illnesses and increase our energy levels. Unfortunately despite the many benefits of exercise, more than 20 million of British people are physically inactive and do not go to the gym.
The problem is, going to the gym takes time, money and effort that not many of us have. Lots of us would like to exercise more, but fitting it into our busy lives can be difficult. As a result, an incredible £558 million is wasted every year due to unused gym memberships. Many of the reasons why people don’t go can be solved by exercising at home.
One way to do this is by creating a garden gym. And not only will it improve your health, but it will transform your home too! In fact, 27% of people’s most desirable feature in their home is an exercise or fitness studio, and having one can have a significant increase on your property’s value. So for the DIY enthusiasts among us, maybe it’s time to consider creating a garden gym.
There are many reasons why this should be your next DIY project, and some of them might surprise you. This infographic created by Prestige Lawns looks at 6 incredible benefits to having a gym in your garden. Read on to find out more!
