Holy cow. That is amazing. Are you an affiliate, or is this just for your own use? Either way, bravo

Thanks for the comments guys.

Yes I am the affiliate out of Memphis TN.


I figured it was time to come out of the park and into the garage.

Re: Pictorial of the CrossFit Alpha Garage Gym (one offensive middle appendage)

Curious -- how high is your ceiling in your garage? I am looking into converting my garage but the height of the ceiling is just over 8 feet. It seems high enough for most things, but I'm slightly concerned it may be too low. Nice setup, BTW.

Man that looks good! I still haven't talked my wife into letting me use the garage full time, So I have to move the cars out then workout. Or just use the backyard.... Set up looks really nice...

8 feet 7 inches I believe.

A way to compensate for low ceilings is to use DBs for overhead lifts. I also have a row of mats extending into my driveway for the purpose of overhead lifts as well.

When your setting your equipment up, be wary of the locaiton of light fixtures and other things attatched to the ceiling. The nice thing about mounting the rings this way, is that I can take them down and use that area for overhead lifts as well.... except for really tall people.

The only thing I havent figured out yet is wall ball.

I will probly take people out back and have them pitch it against brick on the house.


Also the inside floor space is 19x19 if your wondering.
