Discover how Live Off Grid can help you create your perfect space to work out in a shipping container gym.

Characteristics of a Shipping Container Gym

For many people the hardest thing about exercising can be the simple act of getting out of the house. This leads many to turn to home gyms. With space and money often at a premium shipping container gyms are a perfect alternative.

Get in shape in your own space

Why a Shipping Container Gym is Right for You

Finding the motivation to work and get exercising can be hard. With rising gym memberships often exceeding the use you get out of them, what can you do? If you want to get in shape but want to cut down on travel time and monthly payments, a shipping container gym could be the solution. 

Most UK homes don’t come with the space required for a home gym. Many people find themselves converting bedrooms or garages to get their workout space. With Live Off Grid’s shipping container gyms, your space opens up.  

Shipping containers are designed to be extremely durable and secure, making them ideal to store heavy gym equipment without needing to worry about the weight of machines affecting your floorboards.

Fit your workout in where you can

Efficient Exercising

It’s often said that a day even with a little bit of exercise is better than one with none. Many people have busy lives, with work, family, or hobbies and don’t always have the time for hour long workout regimes. 

A home shipping container gym provides the convenience of proximity, allowing you to schedule your workouts amongst your busy schedule. More time efficient and more cost effective.

Get your Gym fighting fit

Flexibility in Body and Space

One of the more interesting aspects of kitting out a home gym is weighing up what you want versus the space available to you. If you only have a small room to play with, you could be limited to what machines and equipment you can choose from. 

A key benefit of a shipping container gym is that, weather permitting, you can open the doors and take your workout outside if you want. The beauty of nature meets the beauty of convenience.

Your space doesn't need to be for pumping iron

Tranquility in Nature

Some people don’t want a space to store weight and running equipment. Mental health is just as important as physical health. 

Mind and body exercises can have a huge benefit on your daily life. Having a safe and open space for a yoga studio at home, without having to dodge pets or family members, can boost your mood, your mind and your body. 

Your space can be fitted how you want it. Large windows can be installed to take your tranquility into nature, a space to get away from the stresses of life and disconnect.
