Tim's Garage Gym Pics/Opinions Needed!

Thought I'd add my pics to the list of garage gyms.

First pic is looking out from inside the house: Model C, cheap treadmill, Ironmaster Superbench, mini-fridge in the back, powertec rack, troy econ bumpers, troy-1200 barbell, nautilus bench, CFF rings, homemade medicine balls, trap bar/misc other bars, body sollid 355lb iron set.

Second Pic is across from the first: CFF Econo GHD, 1p, 1.5p, 2p KBs, hex DBs 10-50, we'll be getting rid of the TV soon...takes up way to much floor space....300 lb stack bodymasters lat machine (from pre-crossfit days).

Picture three is another angle from the first pic which shows some plyo boxes and the wall ball area.

Picture 4 show ssome extra floor space.

I'm looking for opinions on where I should mount my rings and install a pull up bar. We're planning on getting the Again Faster ring mount and either the home depot pull up bar or a stud bar. We're thinking of mounting the rings parallel to the rest of the equipment, between the treadmill and powerrack (obv move the superbench - see pic 3). We'd then mount the pull up bar as close to the water heater as possible, perpendicular to the treadmil/rower (see pic 4). My concerns with this option is that we may not have enough room for the rings, and the pull up bar may cause problems when trying to jump rope. Does this seem like a solid layout or should I try something else?

Note that later this week we plan on putting down stall mats in half the garage (just to the left of the treadmil all the way to the garage door), with plywood set evenly for the lifting area. Any thoughts on this plan? Will having only half the garage covered in mats cause any issues I haven't thought of?

Looks great! But if I were you ...I'd be careful doing 'walls balls' someone opens that door when your doin em and your gonna get wacked in the forehead with a door...

Nice setup for sure! what's up with the TV? and Id add a FGB or ultimate FGB clock...

Deff would suck for someone to walk in that door! It actually goes to the backyard and stays locked.

As for the TV we got it for free from a friend who was going to send it to the dump. My wife likes to watch shows while she rows/runs. I'm hoping to sell it on CL soon.

I've also thought about the FGB clock, but our ipod is docked to a set of Klipsch speakers which works real well with the "Seconds" app.

Why not get rid of it along with the TV? it takes up just as much, if not more floor space than the TV...

A pic from outside the garage looking in would be helpful, just to get a better idea of the overall layout and space.

What about mounting the rings above where the rower is? That way they don't get in the way if you need to do ring stuff and stuff with the rack.

It appears you'd have enough room to mount the pull-up bar near the water heater, but it's hard to tell from the pics.

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

Figured I'd post some updated pictures of the gym since its seen some pretty big changes over the last 4 months.

Here's a comparison picture from the one a few posts up. We completely took out the interlocking mats and put down horse stall mats. We also took the advice of most and got rid of the TV, lat machine as well as the DB's.

that looks awesome!

why did you decide to go with the horsestall mats? also...look like you added wood platforms, or is that the underlying floor?
