Submitted by Justo C., a true inspiration for anyone who wants to build a home gym. He writes: This is the first house I've ever purchased. Both my wife and myself grew up in the ghetto and lived in apartments until two years ago. I started lifting weights when I was 13 and had to either walk great distances and catch the bus to gyms that were in the suburbs because in my neighborhood there were no gyms. And I swore that when I get my hands on a house, I'd have a gym in it even if I didn't have a bed to sleep in. And I finally did it. I say that to say this: It's not a JUNGLES, GOLDS, OLYMPICS or a BALLY'S but it keeps me going. So I will get some good pics and send them to you. Thanks for being such a KICK ASS DUDE man. I mean it. Justo.

rogue power rack

Submitted by Mike.My home gym is built around simple compound movements. Start with a list of the exercises you want to build your workout foundation around, then purchase equipment that supports this workout plan. Some people (including a younger me) focus on building a mini fitness center at home, before realizing that they cannot fit a new, useful piece (e.g. GHR/power rack) because their floor space is filled with supplemental crap: calf machine, lat machine, cable crossover, leverage machine, leg press, pec deck, treadmill, eliptical, smith machine, etc.. Start with the basics, then expand as your budget and room size allows.

Submitted by Jeff: Hi Barry, I am submitting my home gym pics. I really like your site and would like to contribute pics of my gym which is a result of over 25 years of collecting different pieces. I like the atmosphere of an unfinished basement for working out. No windows, no distractions. Clean, but with a bit of a "dingy" feel. I don't think I could ever get used to working out in a "chrome, glass & glitz" environment again. Here's my "dungeon":

Hello Barry! Finally! My home gym is somewhat presentable. I have labored on this project since January. I started with white walls and a bare floor. Now I have two tone gray walls with a black strip in the middle. The floors are covered with clear coat and epoxy. I even built over size cabinets to put all of my junk. I intended to make this gym somewhat of a good training environment. I now have to get some shelves built between the cabinets, and I want a TV in the corner near the mirror (for the wife-she insisted).

Everything on here was purchased from Craigs List. I have saved over $6800, and I have spent less than $2300. There's about $10000 worth of stuff in here now, and counting. Thanks for turning me onto Craigs List. I never visited this site until you educated me on it. You are awesome! If you want to put these photographs on the site, please feel free. You can use my name on it if you want too. Thanks a million. A Friend, Kelly Angel

Submitted by Kenny S. When I bought my house it came with an unfinished basement. So I started to accumulate certain pieces I've used at gyms that gave me the best pumps. I really scored when the last gym I attended was closing. He was selling everything. So some of the pieces and mirrors were from him and the Hammer and Cybex came from a company called Direct Fitness Solutions.

Submitted by Brian N. These are the pics of my home gym I built. I got a lot of inspiration from your site and ideas, Thank you!!!! I bought most of the equipment used, especially the weight plates, and dumbbells. I sanded and repainted all the weight plates and dumbbells. I found out through a lot of phone calls and internet searches that mirrors is something that you have just got to go through a glass dealer to get.

Even if you find some used ones I had no way of transporting them because they are so fragile that the chances of breaking them in transport or removal and installation is very high so it's best to leave this up to the glass people. But I shopped around and got a great deal on my mirrors because a local glass dealer had ordered a bunch for of 4' x 10' mirrors for a casino and the casino decided they didn't want them so he sold them to me for $70 apiece.

I tell you what I did that really paid off for me, I found a body solid leg press in Dallas on craigslist that I wanted for $400 dollars cash that was saving me $800 because a new one sells for at least $1200. So while I was going to drive 5 hrs to go to Dallas to get it, I found a big fitness reseller (fit supply) in Dallas. I called and asked them if I could go by and see what they had that I could buy for my home gym. They were glad to have me; I was like a kid in a candy store.

You have to go to one of these places in order to see all the stuff and pick out the exact piece that you like, plus it gives you hundreds of options to choice from that the internet can never give you. I ended up buying dumbbells and rack, stair master, rubber interlocking flooring that I put under my carpet. I saved $1000 just on the rubber flooring; the guy sold me a whole pallet of used flooring for $25.

I have very limited space and need to get maximum use out of minimum equipment. I tried to have a Soloflex and a power rack, but both together in a small space was just too cumbersome. Finally I found a welder that could turn a pair of Soloflex Muscle Machines into a power rack. I had a pair of hooks made up to hold the bar and turned a pair of barbell arms into a pair of safety catchers. I can do everything that a half cage power rack can do and everything that a Soloflex Muscle Machine can do plus some other things as well.

The Soloflex Machines are excellent. Their barbell arm can be exercised with 500 pounds of freeweights plus 400 pounds of their weightstraps. With the pair together it can be used with very heavy freeweights safely. The construction and quality of materials in the Soloflex is really first rate.

I think this gives me the most versatility in a limited space of any home gym setup. I have an online forum and community in development at SoloflexForever.

Submitted by Chris M.

There was this one workout room in college I used that got turned into a dorm space. After school I really didn't work out much. I decided I wanted to do something about that and was about to buy a weider 4950 from sears for 499 but decided to try craigslist.

I'm not sure if I had tried it before or not but I found a weider 16.6st for 100 bucks. The guy was sad to see it go but he sold it to me! I recently sold it to get a Marcy gs-99 for $200 which is a major upgrade to the weider (adjustable butterflies, preacher curl station, and multiple lower legs workouts).

I've also added a lot of other things from craigslist. The inversion table I got for 100, the NordicTrack stepper was $50, and the Proform 975r recumbent bike was $35! The water cooler I have in my gym that is my water fountain cost me $20 from craigslist again, and the lockers I bought were $25 total. Some food factory was selling them for $5 each. It took awhile to break them free from the wall in the locker room they were in and they were pretty dirty, but after all that cleaning I had yet another deal from craigslist!

My heavy punching bag and stand I got on craigslist as well for $150 and it is on my balcony on the 15th floor. After my workouts I relax on the balcony on my $30 lounger that was originally $299. Thanks craigslist!

The small apex flat bench was $20 from craigslist. I bought the power tower from Kmart for $54 and the reflex speed bag from eBay for $60. The orange mats were at amazon.com for $160 shipped for 192 sq feet. The only thing I don't like about them is that they seem to store the static electricity but that's not a big deal!

I'm currently scouring craigslist for some deals on a roman chair (would like a GHD but I think I can modify a roman chair to do those) and a FID bench and some dumbbells. I also wouldn't mind getting some big wall mirrors up.

All in all I think my gym is pretty sweet for a one bedroom apartment. Total size is about 200 sq feet not counting the heavy bag area on the balcony :).

The only thing I don't understand is why people always ask me if I use all of my stuff. I don't know tell me what you think? :).

Hey Barry awesome website! I want to thank you for giving us fellow home gym junkies a chance to learn how to make equipment and learn from your site. My Man Cave is set up around equipment I used when I was at the gym. I never been a machine guy because I like free weights. My gym consist of a power rack, leg press, lat pull down, dumbbells, and kettlebells. I bought most of the equipment on craigslist which saved me tons of money. I paid full price for the powertec power rack and lat pull down.

The pull up bar thing is in the basement I had a projector set up down there. I took the projector out because noone was using it and this would be the best place for my home gym. Basically I got lucky. Webmasters note: I asked Gustavo if he cut the hole in the ceiling so his head would have clearence for pull-ups.

Here are photos of the gym at my "home away from home" gym This gym is located under the heli deck on a 420' deep sea diving support vessel that operates in the Gulf of Mexico. I send 8 months out of the year working on this vessel, so it is were I get most of my workouts. I am the big one doing the shoulder shrugs with the home made 100 lb dumbbells.

As you can see most equipment is hand made. Last year we did recieve a squat rack, lat machine, incline bench and 600lbs of oylimpic weighs and 2 bars. I am quite fond of my 100lb dumbbells that are made out 4 bottom weights that we us for diving.

It is in an open air environment so the weights get a little rusted, but what the hell, steel is steel, just dont forget your safety glasses. I found your web site looking for a calf machine I could build. So I had the welders weld me one up. It works great. Love the web site, I have been turning on all the deck hands to it.

My gym was a pre-combat tour project that I completed as I awaited my deployment. I purchased the Nautilus Power Rack and Concept 2 Rower from fitness depot, the Olympic Bumper plates from Garage Gym Canada and purchased the barbells and other small pieces of equipment through Rogue Fitness. The Olympic lifting Platform was created by myself and the 3/4" rubber horse stall mats were purchased from a local Equestrian store.

This is my home gym. It's about two thirds purchased and one third homemade equipment. You'll notice the freeweights are all the one inch hole stuff. I bought most of them many years ago before olympic weights were so popular. They've allways worked well for me and I've never felt a need to buy olympic weights.

With the blessing of the wife, and the pleading of my son, I converted a garage with 15 years worth of junk into a well-equipped home gym.

After many trips to the dump and Goodwill, I fabricated and installed baseboard with a hand-routed top made out of 1x10 stock. For power, I ran 2 new 120v circuits, and a new 240v circuit for a dedicated heater. Pulled tv cable for a wall mounted flatscreen tv and coax for hi-speed internet access. After much drywall patching, used 9 gallons of paint to repaint the garage in semi-gloss white.

I fabricated a lifting platform with hand-stained oak center to overcome the sloping garage floor. Fabricated matching wall mounts for olympic plates, using stained oak planks and pipe flanges.

Purchased and trimmed 4'x6'x3/4" stall mats (heavy!) for a wall-to-wall gym floor. Hint: buy lots of spare blades for your carpet knife!

To have a place to neatly store bars and attachments, I fabricated wall-mounted bar and attachment holders.

Since I did everything myself, the job took a few months working on and off. Very happy with the results. My high school-aged son is destined to be a gym-junkie like his old man. Special thanks to Scott Prosek of SNP Performance for building me an 8' power rack and Universal machine (grappler), and hooking me up with a Texas Power Bar

Cheers!

Discovered this site a couple of days ago. New wood tools coming in next day or two, then picking up a bunch of wood for multiple projects found here to help complete the gym over the next few months.

Many years collecting equipment here and there, managed to find a high school gym in perfect condition after repainting the stacks and cleaning off the chrome finish, I just cant believe how much quicker workouts have gotten with 5 stacks instead of always loading plates and what not. Plus at 38 the heavy freeweights have caused issues with wrists and shoulders so the gym stations are great for preventing further hurts. More pics to be added once equipment build is complete.

Submitted by Jim C.

My home gym started out as a PowerTec smith machine with the lat tower attachment, PowerTec utility bench, PowerBlock adjustable dumbbells 5-85lbs, a 300lb Hampton barbell set with 2 additional 45lb and 2 additional 25lb plates, along with a Vision Fitness treadmill all purchased at retail cost about 9 years ago. I've sold the PowerBlocks and no longer use the lat tower attachment. It has since grown thanks to discovering Craigslist and investing well under my initial investment to the following:

PowerTec power rack, PowerTec Leverage Gym, PowerTec Leverage Squat/Calf machine, Parabody leg press/hack squat, Parabody leg extension/leg curl, Parabody flat/incline bench, Body Solid lat pulldown/low row, Body Solid seated calf machine, TDS GHR, hex dumbbells from 5-50lbs in 5lb increments and 50-100lbs in 10lb increments along with 1 1/4 and 2 1/2 lb PlateMates to hit the 5lb and 2 1/2lb increments, several more oly plates, some VTX grip plates and 2 100lb Hampton oly plates.

All this along with the original PowerTec smith machine and PowerTec utility bench and Vision Fitness treadmill. I also have a tanning bed not pictured. I still have a few additions and upgrades I want to make. But the next big project will be finishing the other side of the basement and moving the gym into the finished space.
