With more people converting their garage space into another room, either for practicality or comfort, it’s not surprising that many fitness enthusiasts out there are utilising their garage as a home gym. Some individuals are even training martial arts in their garage with accomplished martial artists such as the Gracies having started out training in garage space to hone their combat skills.
Many garage gyms still make use of the garage door instead of bricking it up. After all, you never know when you might want to convert it back into a garage, especially when it comes to selling the property.
For those who are using their garage as a gym, there’s a variety of garage doors available that suit the purpose.
Garage Doors for Home Gyms
Roller shutters and roller doors are one of the most popular choices for garage gyms thanks to the enhanced security they offer the property. On hot, sunny days, you can leave the garage door partially or fully open to allow air into your gym so you can cool down easier when working out in the summer months. In addition, because roller doors open and shut vertically and do not protrude, you can park as close to the garage door as you like, freeing up more space on the drive for that second car if need be.
If space in front of the garage isn’t an issue, side hinged garage doors might be worth considering. They open just like a normal door and have a more inviting appearance which can work well if you’re using your garage gym as a commercial venture.
