No more excuses with our Gym Equipment

Gym in the garden - Boxing Bag Stand

No more excuses!

We know that exercise is good for you; preventing diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular, diabetes and other medical problems along with mental health by preventing stress and making your brain release endorphins which trigger happy feelings – sounds great if you’ve had a stressful week. The majority of us know this but commonly use excuses like “I don’t have time” or “It’s too late now!” and even “If I had the equipment at home I’d work out, but the house is too small” – sound familiar? It’s easy to find excuses to get out of exercising; I’m guilty of it myself, my gym hasn’t been used in a month because I tell myself I can’t find time in my day to fit travelling to the gym, working out and travelling back.  When you’ve worked hard all day, both at work and at home, it’s easy to put exercising to the back of your mind – until now!

Our brand new range of Outdoor Gym Equipment eliminates the excuses and puts the fun back into exercising! If, like me, one of your primary reasons for not going to the gym is being unable to find the time then our Outdoor Gym is essential. Simply choose where you want to place the Gym Equipment, whether concrete or decking, and secure it down using the galvanised steel base for a strong, long-lasting base that you can use daily come rain or shine – a must have for equipment that’s going to be exposed to a wide variety of elements throughout the year. We’re so confident of this that we offer a 10 year guarantee against structure failure caused by rust.

By having the gym just a stone’s throw outside your back door the gym stays at the front of your mind making you more likely to fit your workout into your day. You don’t have to find an additional 10-20 minutes to travel to and from the gym, adding 20-40 minutes to find in the day, but cuts your workout time out. When you go to the gym often you’ll find yourself wasting time catching up with people or waiting for machines to be free but, by having the gym equipment in your garden, you can focus more on a catered workout that targets your problem areas in half the time. Finding twenty minutes in your day is easier that finding an hour!

Along with saving time, the addition of Outdoor Gym Equipment to your garden, allows you to save money as well. As I’ve previously said you often have to find travel 10-20 minutes a day to go to the gym which can prove costly, especially with the rising costs of petrol, and the general upkeep of your car to make sure it’s on the road.  In addition to car maintenance costs, you have to pay gym membership fees which can often be as high as £40 a month. Over the year this can add up to £480 which, if you’re not going daily, is a lot of expense that could be better spent elsewhere. By adding our Outdoor Gym Equipment you will be able to save a substantial amount of money that can be put towards more important things like the holiday you’ve always wanted – Spain anyone?

Now you know why you need our Outdoor Gym Equipment, now you need to know which equipment to choose:

The stand is made from 86mm thick spruce timber, ensuring it is strong enough to withstand even the biggest blow as you fully throw yourself into the workout while the galvanised steel base keeps the stand securely in place.

Once you’ve mastered the fluid movement of the reverse push up, you can make it a little more difficult by slowing down the movement.

A staple of any gym, the timber Sit Up Bench lets you strengthen your core. Lock your feet and knees to the galvanised steel bars before laying back and beginning your workout.

With thick, strong spruce timber used for the work bench and galvanised steel base and weight hooks, you’ll be able to easily increase the weight level as you hit all your targets. The straight bench helps ensure you have the correct shape and form before lifting the weight off the hooks and beginning your workout.

  • Hi, I’m thinking of having an upright ‘timber punchbag stand’ (shown on your website). I want to use it in my garden (open air)
    Is the base of the stand fixed under the soil or grass, or is it stabilized on the surface?
    Your info would be appreciated.

    Many thanks
    Frank Johnson.
