Re: My Garage Gym Project

Looks fantastic, but is that a crack on the 65's?

Thanks Scott, I have followed your gym project since it was a plan to have a slab made and a garage dropped on-top. You have a REALLY sick setup! I would kill for a 3 car garage..I mean Gym.

Thanks Daniel! I see the pic and see what you mean. In answer to your question: No it wasn't a crack they were fresh out of the box and still had some oil dripping down. They scared me at first when I put them on the ground because from a few feet away it REALLY looked like a crack.

It looks like a bead of sweat that ran down the bumper.

I love that setup! I'm 5 months into my garage gym project and I can already hear the clock ticking on getting a Rogue W-4 and getting rid of my half rack and power tower.

Matthew, just wondering what the reasoning was for opting for an infinity rig instead of a wall mount rig?

Re: My Garage Gym Project

I went back through to the beginning. WOW what a change man. You have turned that into a great gym. You even went as far as to paint it. I like the bar holder I don't need on yet though maybe down the road. So when are you going to extend your garage for the new gear that comes out you are going to get?

That would be AWESOME! I am looking for some land with the plans to eventually apply for Affiliation. I have a lot of people coming and going using the gym currently, so I thought it would be a blast to start one up! Good luck with all of that!

Thanks Matt, I went with the R6 as it was new and shiny and I had an impulse-buy on it. That being said, I do not regret it one bit. It is bolted to the floor and CRAZY sturdy. I did not go with the Wall mounted version because I have some really weird stud placements in the walls of the garage and could not find a good way to fit it in to the layout.

The bar holder is solid for sure, it was a Christmas present which worked out pretty sweet! I live in the suburbs currently so the extension (that is pretty much needed now) will be happening sooner rather than later as I will be looking for some land just outside of town where I can set up a Hanger type building for the gym. A lot of people build a gym around their house and the joke my girlfriend has is that I like to build a House around my Gym. As I said above, I would love to look into Affiliation. I was thinking about going the not for profit route and target an after school program style gym for the more troubled areas around town. Time will tell though!
