Our Home Gym
Last March (2020) when COVID got real and everything basically shut down. My husband and I decided to make use of the unused space in our basement and build our own home gym. I didn't realize that I married someone so crafty, but I sure am grateful for his skills. I don't have all the construction details, but I know that he had to put up dry wall, mud and tape, then paint, and add sub floor and flooring. We already had some of the equipment and some we found at garage sales. I highly recommend trying to find stuff at second hand stores, or on Facebook Market or Craig's List. If there's something specific that you want to buy new, I recommend looking for it now and getting on a wait list, that's what we had to do with several of the pieces we ended up buying new.
I will say that the cable machine was an amazing price and it works great. It was however a huge pain to install (according to my husband).

**Pro tip: Line the shelves with the leftover flooring.
Having a home gym has been a huge time saver and its very convenient. I do miss going to the gym at times, connecting with others and some of the equipment, but overall, its amazing and I'm super grateful. The next item that we'd like to purchase is a treadmill, but hopefully we'll get lucky and find a used one. I think this is pretty much everything. If there's something that I missed or if you have any questions, please feel free to drop them below.
