Make no excuses for breaking healthy resolutions this New Year

by anonymous | Dec 27, 2012 | Blog, Residential

The presents are unwrapped, the chocolates demolished and there's just one more portion of leftovers remaining. Christmas is officially over and minds are switching from present organising to New Years planning. The most popular resolution in the UK for 2012 was to lose weight but, like many years before, it was also the most broken one.

So why are Brits failing to keep fit throughout the year? What are the most common excuses? Blaming the weather, the gym costs or being too busy are usually on the list but more than often it's the physical effort to get out and moving that stalls the new routine. Travelling to the gym and working out in a crowded space is a big turn off for many, so health conscious homeowners are finding new ways to bring their resolutions to them.

Garden gyms are a unique solution for homeowners that want to stick to their healthy resolutions for 2013. Designed to compliment your garden and give you the space to work out in your own time, an outdoor gym can cut out the excuses and ensure you can start your January with the right attitude.

One family to make the most of their garden and use it to enhance their healthy lifestyles is the DehadraysThey wanted to be able to exercise more frequently but in a way that would fit within their busy family life. Their outdoor space was unused so they decided to develop a garden gym that would get rid of the commute and allow them to work out whenever they want. 

The gym gives the family the flexibility to escape from the house without making the trek to their local fitness centre. The garden room is ideal for their current lifestyle and as their children grow, the space can grow with them and they can adapt it to fit with their changing family.

Bringing the gym to your home gives you no excuses for breaking your New Years Resolutions for 2013. T find out how a garden gym could help you stay fit throughout the year, get in touch.

A big Happy New Year from everyone at The Garden Escape, we hope you have a successful and exciting 2013.
