I have a lanai that is built along the back side of our house, it is constructed with a tile floor and a wall of screens, however the space is approximately many feet deep and sixteen feet long.
It provides plenty of square footage for a loft gym.
I enjoy that I have an section to set up our stationary bike, yoga mat, weight bench, free weights, jump rope and resistance bands. I’m able to crank up the songs and combine cardio, strength training and stretching into a hard workout! My physical fitness is an everyday priority. I enjoy to complete our workout first thing in the dayâ€¦ For the majority of the year, the lanai is just perfect. I take fortune of the fresh air and attractive view, however, during the peak of summer, the temperature climbs into the eighties and the humidity is brutal. I don’t have access to air conditioning in the lanai. I rely on a box fan that provides little relief. I’m usually drenched in sweat before I’ve even started our warmup; During the winter, when the temperature drops down into the low forties, it’s strenuous working out separate from a heater. I need to bundle up in layers of sweatshirts. It’s nearly impossible to respectfully moderate up our muscles and exercising is torture. Unblessedly, due to the screens, there’s simply no way to heat or cool the lanai. I’d need to close it up, insulate and either extend the air duct from the main house or install a ductless unit. I’m unwilling to spend that kind of currency and don’t actually want to deliver up the advantages of the screens.
