In the year 2000, I purchased my first piece of fitness equipment (a Powertec power rack with a bench). Along the way, I kept making small purchases, and fourteen years later, voila. I recently moved into a new house in Phoenix, AZ. Here is the new and improved garage gym. It has all the big things I like in terms of equipment, and also all the little things that make the gym awesome (bathroom, mirrors, rubber mats, mini-fridge, heater, AC unit, HDTV, stereo, etc.).
Here’s a quick video that shows a panarama of the gym:
Here is a more thorough video of the place where I explain all the various training tools and pieces of equipment:
Below are pictures of the place.
I encourage all fitness enthusiasts with their own homes to gradually build up their own gyms. There’s no waiting for equipment, no distractions, you can play your own music, and you can equip your gym with the vital tools that will give you a much better chance of succeeding. Most of my equipment was purchased at Elitefts, Sorinex, Rogue, and Perform Better (no affiliate links).
