If you lack budget but are dedicated and have a 25m long spare patch of garden, you could try the Conrad Stolz solution
(maybe use as a curling rink in winter):

I just used some laminate from Homebase. Seems to do the trick. There's a lot more mess in there now compared to when I took this picture though

I have quick step laminate flooring throughout a large part of my flat. For the bathroom, they do a waterproof specific option. I'd think that would be advantageous for longer term durability of a training den.

Did you got for Dunster or Tiger in the end? Is that 5.5 x 4.5?

I went with Tiger Sheds in the end. I think the 5.5x4.5 if that's what I put earlier in the thread. I paid for it to be erected which was about 700 from memory and was well worth it. 3 guys turned up on a Saturday a week or so after it arrived about 10am and had it completed by about 4pm. It would have taken me ages to do it by myself and I would have definitely made mistakes.

Exactly the same size as mine, 5.5 X 4.5 m

Word of warning if you want a treadmill in there, check the height will be ok. I'm 1.83m and when running on the mill there's not a lot of clearance taking into account the roof support rafters

Yes, very true. Which is why my treadmill has the centre under the roof apex. I'm 1.90m and I have only a couple of cm clearance. I couldn't place it elsewhere
