Re: Tim's Garage Gym Pics/Opinions Needed!

Tim,

I noticed you switched from the CFF Econo GHD to the Sorinex. You seemed to be pleased with the CFF Econo GHD at first. What caused you to replace it?

I'm in the market for a GHD, and the CFF Econo GHD was one I was considering.

Regards,
Justin

OMG I think I bought some oly plates from you a while ago. I thought the place looked familiar. I think it was the TV and the red walls that started to stir my memory.

Were you the one who bought the nautilus plates? If so, I remember you! Ya, a bit has changed since then.

Re: Tim's Garage Gym Pics/Opinions Needed!

Tim, where did you get your bumper plates? Are they expensive to have shipped? Also, I'm not finding the Again Faster ring mount you have mounted to you ceiling on their website. Do you have a link to it, or the specific name I can seach for on their website?
Love your garage gym--I have most of the same equipment, & would like to transform my garage to look very similar to yours.
Thanks!
Dave.

Re: Tim's Garage Gym Pics/Opinions Needed!

Found the ring mounts! & I can probably find the bumper plates somewhere & find out the shipping amt. But I am curious--why the wood areas on the floor? I'm assuming it's for a solid lifting surface, am I correct? Is the surface of the horse mats too soft for a firm or secure footing?
TIA, Dave.

The bumpers are the Rogue hi temps. And yes, the wood is to provide a better lifting surface. Post pics of your setup when your done!

Re: Tim's Garage Gym Pics/Opinions Needed!

Will do! Maybe I can post some "before" pics so you can see how cluttered it is right now. I'm afraid I'll only have 1/2 of the garage at my disposal for a gym, at least until I get my wife's buy-in to expand it. We have our treadmill & recumbent bike in another room, so that frees up some space (I never use them anyway).
Btw, what did you use for the wood? Doesn't look like your typical plywood sheeting. Did you put polyurethane on it? Looks awesome!

Re: Tim's Garage Gym Pics/Opinions Needed!

Another quick question--do you find the wall ball targets to be a bit too low? I thought they were supposed to be 10'?
