Choose from a selection of additional options, including showers, changing facilities, TRX hooks, reinforced flooring and much more.
Our Garden Gym Models
Our garden gym building range comprises three beautiful designs. The Clarence is our most modern design, boasting a bold feature wall in a selection of unique finishes. The Buckingham offers a combination of both indoor and outdoor living space, ideal for a dual-purpose garden room. Our Sandringham model is our classic design, offering simplicity, style and functionality. We also offer the option to work with our team to design and create a fully bespoke outdoor gym room just for you.
Why a Garden Gym?
A garden gym room adds luxury value and aesthetic to your property while complimenting an active lifestyle. Having a home gym makes it easier to keep up regular workout habits, as well as cut down travel time and gym fees, making it simpler than ever to stay fit. Create your garden gym from one of four designs: Classic, Contemporary, Inspired, or your own bespoke style.
Best of all, a Crown Pavilions garden room is extremely versatile, so what may be your home garden gym today might just become a future garden office or cinema in a few years’ time. Our garden gym rooms come with a 10-year guarantee – we want to make sure you can make the most of your garden gym over the years, with no issues.Contact Us Now
Leading Garden Gym Manufacturer in the UK
Our luxury garden rooms are beautifully handcrafted in our Oxfordshire workshop, starting with the finest quality timber to create the most impressive British-made garden buildings, designed to complement any outdoor space seamlessly.
Each and every one of our outside gyms are a true labour of love and have been built to our exacting standards to deliver nothing less than excellence. All of our designers are TRADA-certified and our builds are checked by a chartered structural engineer for the Crown stamp of approval. From stunning aesthetic design to flawless structural integrity, a Crown Pavilions garden room remains the first choice for home gyms across the country.
Considerations For Your Garden Gym
The recommended base for any gym building is a concrete base with an insulated screed top. Due to the nature of impact and excess weight loadings, we install the finished floor on top of a screeded base instead of an insulated timber sub floor (our standard method). This would need to be prepared by your local contractor; however, our team would provide drawings to assist with this. Any other base such as pile foundations or screw base systems could result in cracking and failure of the building over time. Learn more about different types of garden room foundations.
The most overlooked consideration for a gym is height. Our standard buildings are designed to meet the 2.5m typical permitted development requirements which is needed if the building is going to be situated at or within 1m of a boundary line. This will provide you with a 2.1m internal ceiling height. While this is sufficient for some equipment and exercise, generally 2.4m of ceiling height is required to ensure adequate clearance for most. We recommend an overall ceiling height of 2.8-3m, which means your garden gym would need to be located at least 2m away from any boundary line. View our guide to garden rooms for small gardens.
Air Conditioning & Heating
Our experienced team can advise on suitable cooling and heating solutions for your home garden gym. In most cases, we will recommend installing a wall-mounted air conditioning unit to keep the space well-ventilated and cool while you work up a sweat. As with all our garden rooms, our garden gyms are built using residential-standard insulation, however we also offer additional heating options for added comfort during the winter months, including wall-mounted electric panel heaters and underfloor electric heating.
Lighting & Electrics
We provide a seamless build from start to finish, taking care of any home gym lighting and electrical features as part of the process. Our garden buildings are fully-wired as standard with brushed stainless steel lights, high-grade flush-mounted sockets and switches. Our team can also provide a quote for any bespoke lighting installations, such as studio lighting for dance practice or suspended LED rings to create an authentic gym feel at home. Learn more about garden room electrics.
Changing facilities are an important part of your home gym, providing a secure space to change in and out of your sportswear, freshen up or store any jewellery or other valuable possessions before your workout. Get creative with your space and add signature gym lockers, benches or built-in hairdryers to provide ultimate convenience without having to trek back and forth from your home. View our guide to garden rooms with toilets and showers.
When planning to build a home workout room, hard-wearing flooring is a must as softer wood flooring or carpet can be easily damaged in a gym environment. Laying down reinforced flooring, non-slip rubber-coated flooring or gym tiles can make a great alternative, especially if you are going to install large gym equipment or weight racks.
Mirrors & TRX Hooks
Whether you're into aerial silks, resistance training or boxing, we can install secure TRX hooks and wall-mounted rings to support your weight without causing structural damage to your garden room. We can also fit floor-to-ceiling wall mirrors to help you focus on your posture and boost your confidence during training sessions, while also creating the illusion of a larger space.
WC & Shower Rooms
We believe your garden room should be built to the same standard as your home. That’s why we recommend installing high-quality plumbing for your garden gym building. Our team can fit residential-grade WC and shower rooms on request, enabling you to pop to the toilet mid-workout or freshen up afterwards without having to go back into your house, saving you time and effort.
