you may have a 1500sqft garage gym, but my 300sqft apartment isn't too far behind buds! LOL check it out brother:

Do I have issues? NAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!! I can't do that much with it here since I'm on the second floor. Oh how I wish I lived in a basement apartment or better yet a gym! WAIT that was supposed to say house oh well, gym it is...

If used my space as well as you do Pierre I could get 3 times as much stuff into my gym as I have now. Remember the storage loft area above the cardio area and infrared sauna? It's a 16x16 area and now that I cleaned it up a bit there's about 12x12 left over in the center. I put down the extra interlocking foam pads I have and put carpet down on top of that and now have all the kid stuff that used to be down on the main floor up there out of the way. Now the kids have to go up there to access, play with and make a mess with their toys which keeps the main area less cluttered.

In another post I mentioned that I moved my bicycles from the loft wall over to the race number wall and put up a spinning pullup bar. I've been considering putting up some sort of upside down jumgle gym arrangement on the rest of that wall/ceiling space which will allow lots of pulling and climbing options and a tremendous climbing opportunity for the kids. I was going to do it myself with plumbing pipe but that would be crazy expensive. I'm going to draw something up and find someplace to weld up a climbing bar bonanza for me to mount. The idea is that it will have all kinds of angles to do pullups with and it will occupy an otherwise unused space. The idea began with a simple angled ladder up to the ceiling and has evolved into a much more complicated climbing/pulling arrangement.

You are just going to explode with equipment when you get some room Pierre. When that happens you will put my humble little garage to shame.

Hammer on.

That's hilarious, but cool!

I should do something like that in my bedroom, get rid of all that useless stuff and just a bed and equipment.

your jungle gym aparatus sounds like a blast. After that all you'll be missing is a repel tower.

Maybe if I didn't live in the most suck up city in the country!

I was thinking of "Hardcore Apartment" and you're on dude... Seriously

I drink the big 1L bottles of Bud, as seen in picture number 5 or second from the bottom. And the love me wall is in the bedroom (no not really) . Oh and I brew my own coffee thank you. Timmies gets expensive.

Yes I made the black set and I had the aluminum set custom made for me.
