Building a garage gym pull up bar
Garages are best suited for fitness not storage. I sacrifice my cars health keeping it outside. My health is not sacrificed and arguably more important than my vehicles resale value. You can’t put a price on good health. You get out what you put in. The appeal to a garage gym is convenience. The time I save driving to the gym is now spent using my garage gym. Once the initial investment in your garage gym is spent on minimal equipment you no longer have monthly dues. Fitness at home allows you to stay local and not detract from family time. I prefer to sweat in private and avoid people. Fitness is contagious, I often have kid company mimicking my burpee pull ups and kettle bell swings. The internet offers plenty of free places to copy workouts and assist you in programming your own WODS. My gym is simple. Pull up bar, barbell, bumper plates, kettlebells, rubber floor mats, and an Assault Bike. With some creativity my options are endless. Walking through my garage gym is a daily reminder it’s there waiting for me. Build your own space your body will pay you later.
