The Personal Gym Space With A Ranch Cabin

Keeping a fit and healthy lifestyle has never been easier with a 12 square meter Ranch SheShed cabin (4m x 3m) right in your own home. This is what David has done, where he has chosen an ideal spot close to his house so he can get up and go straight to his gym.

We are amazed by the tranquil location chosen for this home gym, so the major outlook is to the gardens and surrounding trees. David has painted his Ranch cabin with a modern grey tone, keeping in mind to make the window and door trims a contrasting white. He has found plenty of space for his exercise gear and has even got different areas for stretching and weights.
