Last year my Girlfriend and I moved apratments so that we could get one with a lock up garage to use as a gym and naturally it's taken us until now to sort it out!

I have to say thanks to Andrew Cattermole and Fiona Muxlow (straight off the plane from the Cert no less!) who helped us pull all the crap out of the garage and organise everything. Thanks guys!

Here are some pics.

A platform and bumpers and a pullup bar are next in line.

Lots of crap

sweet set up brother, love the mixed tools!

garage gyms are awesome :-)

i also have my backyard - two logs, stones, and a climbing rope (15 feet)

great fun :-)

neighbors always freak when they see groups of us training!

Love the garage gym, I need to add the pictures of mine to this board...

25 KBs? What for? Is Mr. Durden building an army? I seem to get along (with my wife and mother workout partners) just fine with 5!

I sell the kettlebells for the guy who manufactures them so i've always got a variety in stock.

The latest lot were actually used on the Aussie version of "the biggest loser" and after they were odne borrowing them i picked them up to sell.

One of the kegs is half full of water, weighs about 30kg and we were having fun cleaning and pressing it on Saturday. The other one is going to be filled with sand and water (once i figure out how to get the sand in)

Do,
Those must be the new mini-bumpers I read about in Muscle & Fiction.... I hear they're awesome as the models from shape magazine to do great things with them!


LOL

I can't believe I actually paid real money for them but i've got an 86 year old client and she isn't quite up to the 40kg Kb or the 60kg rock yet.
