Mold and Moisture in Garage

Hi all.

I recently set up a decent gym in my garage. I built most of the equipment myself, but bought some new stuff as well: kettle bells, rings, chin up bar, etc.

I've learned that it's extremely moist in the garage and I"m worried about two things: 1) mold and breathing it in as I work out (I'm allergic); 2) developing rust on the equipment. Is there a way to prevent either of these things from happening? Is there a good preventative way to stop the spread and development of mold and rust?

I'm apprehensive about making my next purchase--an Olympic weight set with bumper plates if they'll just be ruined...

Any suggestions?

I don't have any experience with this, but perhaps installing a fan would help the humidity levels?

The stopwatch is a useful tool, but it is also blind to the quality of the individual effort.
