Cool Garage gym complete

Hi All,

I lie it's semi complete because every pay check I think of new things to waste, I mean spend money on. For the most part however it is done. I have put a little over $2000 so far into it, primarily because on our substitutes for Craigslist there are little if any Olympic sized barbells/bumper plates.

I have bought:

Concept 2 - $550
Squat/bench stands - $100
Plyo box - $115
Weight vest - $79
Log bar - $165
Barbell - $200
Bumpers (150kg/300#) - $480
Collars - $30
Shelving - $28
Gymnastics rings - $30
Ab mat - $15
Rubber matting - $90
Heater - $14
Blackboard paint - $14
Bench - $110
DIY Kettlebell and Barbell jack - $70

Free:

Toaster rack made with spare timber
Blackboard timber
Plywood sheet for platform

I need help with naming my little space as I have no idea what to call it and also if anyone can recommend the next piece I should buy,

Regards,

Tate

Re: Garage gym complete

Looking good, do you have any way to do pull ups? Also perhaps grab a medicine ball if you don't already have one.

I am curious about the barbell? What brand is it?

As far as pullups are concerned, getting a wall or ceiling mounted bar would be your best bet. Many vendors sell this, and you can make your own with pipe, some 2x4's and knowing your building's frame.

Also, you can get a good deal on a 20lb medicine ball on title boxing's website, that's where I got mine. It works just fine in a low-volume setting like a garage gym or for personal use, and some boxes use them too. I should warn you that the Title balls do not feel as good as a dynamax or similar balls, but do work. You can also get a 20lb slamball and use it for wallballs.

Re: Garage gym complete

Does it get hot in there?
If so, I'd name it the Brick Oven.

Nice space, well used.

The other things you might consider:

Sled or Prowler or both.

I'm a big fan of GHD's and reverse hypers.

This would be lower on my list, but if you do a lot of WODs some type of timer with big numbers.

Re: Garage gym complete

Looks great! I think next on your list would be a place for doing pull ups and some kettlebells or dumbells for doing some accessory strength work like single arm presses and rows.

Thanks James I didn't include it in the photo because this is in my dads workshop and the other half is disgusting but I do have a pull up bar with rings attached for dips.

I have a couple of basketballs ready to fill as medicine balls/slam balls. I am following CrossFit Football programming and it doesn't call for wall balls that much.

It is just some local guy in Sydney who imports barbells from China. They come from the same factory as some big brands down here they actually spin really well.

I actually just bought a kettlebell, but obviously I'll need to build that as a bit more coin comes in haha

It is Winter here at the moment but I do think it does get hot, thanks for the suggestion. Thanks mate appreciate it.

There is a guy in Sydney who sells a Sled/Prowler combo I'd love to get my hands on for only $250. I would love a clock but they cost so much for what they are and the same goes for the GHD.
