Re: Post pics of your home/garage gym

La Scalas in your gym??

My word, what kind of speakers do you have in the house?

BTW..eBay is the way to go for a gym stereo system.

Re: Post pics of your home/garage gym

Re: Theresa
Thanks. I gathered up that much stuff because I'd been planning on doing some personal training out of there, though that doesn't seem like it'll work out, so I'm going for a job at a nearby globo-gym. I've been thinking of opening my gym up for use by local CrossFitters, just because I have all the things needed, and it'd be a shame to let it go to waste.

Re: Post pics of your home/garage gym

Bryan,

These are really, really ugly ones. The guy I bought them from called them "UgScalas" and he was right. The sound, though, is amazing. I just upgraded the crossovers and tweeters and will eventually clean up the cabinets. At 36" high, they also make a great box jump!

Re: Post pics of your home/garage gym

i started doing crossfit about 2 months ago and realized going to my gym was pointless and a waste of money. here is what i've accumulated since canceling my gym membership.

Olympic Bar & Weights 290lbs (Free from the neighbor)
Kettelbells ($230)
24" Plyobox (Free, built it with stuff around the house)
Parallette Bars ($4, just needed the caps, T's, and corner pieces)
Jump rope ($6)
20lbs Ball ($3 bag of sand, old basketball)
20lbs Dumbells (Found in the basement)

It's a work in progress, but certainly worth it.

I workout by myself and have been using my Ironman Trialthlon watch to time Tabata and FGB workouts, but it is very difficult. I found this timer at gym boss.com that looks like it will work well and it only costs ~$20.

Note: You will need to remove the space between gym and boss to go to the website. It is only one word, but for some reason it gets posted as *******.com when I try to write it out as it is.

The website offered a free T-shirt to anyone who posted a promotional thread about the timer on a message board. After many threads of "I love this timer!" the moderators found out why people kept posting new threads about it, then blocked it. Spam isn't cool.

Re: Post pics of your home/garage gym

Neat setup, Kurt. Love what you did with that bench press thingamajik. Especially the safety bars. I'm worried about the pull-up bar, though. Don't you headbutt the ceiling when your chin gets over bar?

Awesome thread, by the way. Keep it going.
