Another garage gym

These are all starting to look alike but I figured I would add another to the long list already posted. I've worked out in my garage for a few years, up until now it was mostly homemade equipment. I decided this spring to finally install some new doors on my detached garage and figured it was a good time to upgrade the gym.

This could be a pretty good advertisement for Rogue since most of my gear came from him. I've purchased a lot of stuff from them over the last few years and have directed more than a few people his way. I've been more than pleased with the service and quality.

Here is the list of gear:

old school York Classic power bar (the best bar I have ever used for squats, presses, deads and bench)
2 rogue bars
1 rogue youth bar
2 sets of rings
2 rogue pull-up bars
2 sets of bumpers w/5k training bumpers, lots of steel
M2 Sorinex GHD
power rack
2 med balls
2 slam balls - 12 and 30 pounds
York squat stands
Kbells up to 70 pounds
jump ropes
Prowler
plyo boxes
bands
C2 rower
and a few other odds and ends

I will be upgrading the power cage shortly, as soon as I decide on which half rack to get. I'm looking to open it up on the weekends as time permits for a few people to train a couple hours each day, probably early am.

Re: Another garage gym

I really like your set up; it is organized and well laid out.
Are you an affiliate? I may put some pics of my little setup.
It is good to see that you too have to line up your motor-oil along the wall!

Re: Another garage gym

Beau, I dig your setup. The interior makes it feel more "rugged" haha.

Happy training!

Re: Another garage gym

Nice! I like the organization. Do you ever get annoyed flipping through the stack of bumpers?

Re: Another garage gym

Edward, I am an affiliate but this is just my personal set up. Now that it's finished I will probably let a few folks that like to strength train hang out in the weekends and use the space.

Bo, thanks. When I used only homemade equipment it looked much more rugged.

Maggie, thanks. I have had more than a few cases of garage envy.


James, stacking/unstacking bumpers is a problem. Haven't seen a great solution that will not eat up floor space. I think the half rack I get will need to have plate storage.

Re: Another garage gym

I love that you have two lifting stations.
What did you chose for the platform? And is it holding up well?
