Christmas is the time of year when we all pig out, overindulge and pile on the pounds. We consume a staggering 8,530 calories on Christmas day – more than triple a triple a man’s daily calorie intake and four times a woman’s. The average person will put on 4 – 6 pounds between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day after consuming twice their recommended calorie intake. And it can take till Easter to repair the damage.
You can start to repair the damage by going to the gym. However, there are lots of issues. It’s not as simple as picking up your kit and heading off to your local gym. The extortionate monthly gym prices, finding the motivation to go and working out in front of complete strangers put a lot of us off going. A Log Cabin is a solution to this problem, then transforming it into your own gym can eradicate all of the issues associated with the dreaded trip to your local gym.
Having your own gym at home lets you create an atmosphere that helps you focus while working out. For me, having music blaring from my speakers is the ideal motivation, not having to fiddle about with headphones while you’re working out would be perfect. The other advantage is that you won’t have to queues for machines, no distractions and bumping into someone you don’t want to. Once you bump into someone and the conversation starts flowing, you’ve wasted half an hour and with a hectic schedule, its eaten into your workout time.
Get rid of all the distractions with your very own Dunster House Log Cabin. Our PremiumPlus models have a range of wall thickness to choose from, 28mm, 45mm and 130mm. Coupled with insulation, it provides a warm space you can work out in throughout the year. To ensure no gaps form between logs, our cabins feature adjustable storm braces. Timber is a naturally resourced product that is likely to expand or contract in adverse weather conditions, especially when it is very cold or extremely hot.
Our PremiumPlus models feature 4mm toughened glass in our windows and doors for increased safety and security. To protect your expensive gym gear, our doors feature our industry leading four-point locking system. It features a hook, locking latch and two roller locks. We use a type of lock that has 6 pins and has been tested to BSEN 1303:2005 classification to ensure it is a safer, more secure locking system. Our windows have multipoint locking as well, using the same type of system as we supply with our uPVC windows and doors.
If you are going to create your own gym, you are going to need equipment in order to achieve your goal of loosing all those pounds put on over Christmas. Gym equipment is extremely heavy though, treadmills, dumbbells and weight machines all need to be placed on a strong surface. Our PremiumPlus models feature 19mm or 28mm thick floors, with the 28mm floor being the thickest anywhere for rigidity and warmth, they are also extremely substantial and can take excessive weight which is perfect for all your equipment.
