I have a big shed situated in our backyard that I use as our lake house gym, however the cement floor, eight-foot ceiling & square footage are ideal.
There is a window situated at each end of the shed that is helpful to deliver fresh air while in milder weather! I enjoy to workout first thing in the afternoon when possible.
I spend approximately an hour on a combination of stretching, strength training & high-impact aerobics. I have an incline bench, mini trampoline, battle ropes, free weights, yoga mat, jump rope, medicine ball & a stationary bike. The only concern I had with the space was the lack of temperature control; For a while, I got by with an electric space furnace in the Winter time & a window a/c in the summer. I’d need to go out to the shed, start up the portable furnace or cooling unit & then wait about an hour before I could begin our exercises. On especially hot or freezing afternoons, the furnace & a/c struggled to keep up with demand. I’d try to workout as early as possible while in the Summer to avoid the heat of the afternoon, during the winter, I’d wait for the temperature to warm up before working out. I finally decided to make an improvement. I had a ductless heat pump permanently installed to handle year round temperature control. The method consists of a compact outdoor compressor & a tightprofile indoor air handler. The air handlers is mounted up high on the wall & provides both heating & cooling capacity. I’m able to switch from heating to cooling, raise & lower temperature, adjust fan speed & even target the direction of airflow from an app on our iphone.
