Tip #1
Clean out your garage and move your car.

You will feel a lot better just from doing this. Trust me.
Tip#2
Decide if your going to build your own (do it yourself “DIY”) or have it all delivered – or a combination of both.

Tip#3
Outline and think it through. If you plan now you may be able to add on items later. Mike McGoldrick explains how he installed his squat rack and added a pull up bar afterwards.

Tip #4
Look for options to have dual purpose. A Yoke of Goergen can be used as a pull up bar, a sled and a squat rack. Convenient.

Tip #5
Use Chalkboard paint in a garage gym. A must have. Just paint it on and it looks like a chalk board that you can easily write on. Great tip.

Tip #6
Look to save cost and space with items like adjustable dumbbells. Then you don’t have to buy a full set of dumbbells. These can also double as your kettle bells and for farmers carries.

Tip #7
Try to buy used gear if you can. In some cases you may be able to get $10k in gear for $500.

Tip #8
“How do you sell this idea to your wife – or girlfriend?”  First off – have a wifey or GF who works out.  Second – buy her a sweet women’s barbell like “The Bella”. She will love you for that.

Questions from athletes in our gym and online.

Question: Where can I buy gym chalk in bulk for my garage gym? My buddies are all going to pitch in?

Check out Ader Gym Chalk as you can buy it in a 8 block box and it is under $16 so pretty cheap. Better than trying to buy it one block at a time.

Question: What do i need for a home gym? For a regular home gym I would have a bench press, dip bar, barbell and bumper plates.

Question: What do i need for a CrossFit home gym? I would add in a set of gym rings, wall ball, jump rope and a sled to pull.
