During difficult and challenging times, prioritising your mental and physical health is an absolute must. It has been shown time and again that those with strong physical and mental health are more resistant to illness and recover more quickly, so having a log cabin home gym or a log cabin yoga studio could be your ticket to continued wellbeing.
It might be that visiting a gym or attending a yoga session is a regular part of your routine – or at least it was, until recently. Lock-down measures have closed many places down and getting your exercise or yoga fix has become a little more difficult.
Exercising or running through a yoga routine at home might be the only option available, but it can be fraught with problems. Choosing a log cabin home gym or a log cabin yoga studio is the right decision to boost your health.
Creating a Log Cabin Home Gym
The obvious benefit from having any kind of home gym is that you do not have to travel far to get to it, and there are no monthly fees. It is available whenever you want to use it, and you have total control over the music that is played – something that can often be an issue in a public gym!
However, just designating an area of your home to be your new makeshift gym isn’t the best option. You probably already have some gym equipment lying around – maybe a kettlebell or a skipping rope. You might even have home versions of the larger gym equipment, perhaps a treadmill or a resistance machine. But you know it is not ideal.
It occupies space. You trip over it. You are constantly worried about the kids injuring themselves or breaking the equipment. Quite simply, you’d love to have that corner of your dining room back or be able to keep your car in the garage.
A log cabin home gym is a dedicated space within a few yards of your home that is private, separate, and the ideal environment for a workout. It can be designed to fit whatever space you have available, and to meet your requirements.
This means you will be able to fit whatever equipment you desire in the log cabin home gym, and you will have all the facilities you need. Want a shower after your exercise session? No problem – log cabins can be connected to mains services, so you’ll have electric to power your gym equipment and water to refresh yourself afterwards.
You can decorate the interior of your log cabin home gym as you desire, so you can make it look like your local gym or add your own touches so you are inspired to make use of the space regularly.
Building a Log Cabin Yoga Studio
If lifting weights and running on a treadmill is not your thing and you prefer to practice yoga instead – or as well – a log cabin yoga studio provides the ideal space to go through your routine. A key factor in completing a yoga session is having the space to move, and a log cabin yoga studio will provide this space much more readily than any room in your home could.
You can decorate and design the log cabin yoga studio however you want, so if you are into low impact yoga with an aspect of meditation, you can make it as calming as necessary. If you’re more into complex positions that enhance your core strength and leave you feeling like you’ve had a good workout afterwards, create a space that inspires you to do your best.
With mains services connected, you can choose the type of lighting you have, your sound system, whether you have a screen for following online or pre-recorded routines, and so on. It’s the perfect log cabin yoga studio, completely private, and made for your own enjoyment.
You do not need to wait for a scheduled class, and you can go to your yoga studio whenever you want, at any time of the day or night.
The Benefits of a Log Cabin Home Gym or Log Cabin Yoga Studio
The obvious benefits have already been stated – no fees, no waiting, a dedicated space, and you can use the log cabin whenever you want to. However, what is not so clear is why exercise is important to begin with.
In lock-down, it is easy to become disheartened, worried, anxious, and depressed. Studies have shown that regular exercise, whether it is high impact or low impact, will increase the wellbeing of both your body and your mind. Yoga is often associated with meditation and mindfulness, but even without those aspects, just being able to move your body a few times a week in an uninhibited space will boost your mood and mental health as well as keeping you physically fit.
It helps to improve your self-esteem, relieves stress, and you’ll feel much more positive about everything.
A log cabin yoga studio and a log cabin home gym don’t even need to be mutually exclusive, as you can make space for both types of activity within a single log cabin. It’s the ultimate solution to your physical and mental wellbeing in lock-down, allowing you to achieve a zen-like state where nothing will be overwhelming.
