    The look of it doesn't bother me, but I often wonder how much of that fiberglass I'm sucking in while I'm down there. I should probably do something with it, even if it's just some fabric.

    Very much a work in progress https://forum.bodybuilding.com/showt...03&pagenumber=

    Currently outfitting the downstairs of a garage as a dedicated home gym (with the actual garage/storage area upstairs). Here's a 3D drawing of how it would look (minus the large garage folding door, which we're not doing). The size is very good - about 680 square feet/63 square metres. About 6.3 metres (21 feet) wide and 10 metres (33 feet) long



    Here's an actual photo from last week. The ceiling height of the downstairs area, where the gym will be - will shake out at about 9 feet 3 inches.



    We've already purchased a few bits of equipment that are currently sitting in storage:
    * Hit Fitness Power Rack F200 (about 7 feet high), with barbell, bench and bumper plates
    * Hit Fitness Adjustable Dumbbells (they can be adjusted from 5kg per hand, to 40kg per hand)
    * Hit Fitness Indoor Cycling Bike G8

    Updated pictures of Jim's Gym.
    This has been 20 years I've had a home gym. I have everything now that I need. I'll start focusing on things I want next, mainly upgraded plates. I'd like to upgrade my PowerTec Leverage Gym to the newer model, it has many more adjustment possibilities. My older one still works. The only things I have from when I originally started putting together a home gym are my Hampton deep dish and VtX grip plates, Hampton Oly bar and curl bar, and the 3 - 30lbs dumbbells. I started buying new things that I actually wanted during the Covid shutdown since prices were pretty much the same or less than the used market. I've had to downsize space wide after a divorce and move. I went from and 1800 sq foot unfinished based to this is in an over sized one car garage with low ceilings, barely over 7'. I need better mirror options/placement.

    Here's the Inspire FTX functional trainer from Costco and my Body Solid seated calf raise. I kept the short bench that came with the Inspire FTX, I actually like it and use it with the FTX and for lying tricep extension. It's much closer to the floor, I think it's only !3" tall.



    This is my older PowerTec Leverage Gym and the IronMaster hyperextension attachment with the dedicated seat. They hyper is sturdy, but light enough to easily move in and out of position to use.



    This is my Body Solid leg press/hack squat combo. I've got two sets of hundo oly plates.



    IM 2000. I use this as a Smith Machine and for any pulldown/seated row movements. It's incredibly smooth in all facets. If you only had room for one piece of equipment I honestly think this would be the one. Granted the attachments start getting pricey, but you can use it for pretty much everything and with the J-hooks and spotter arms you can do free weight exercises with it also. Also numerous attachments.



    I've individual hex dumbbells from 5 to 50lbs in 5lb increments and 60 to 100s in 10lb increments. I have 2.5lb and 5 lb plate mates to fill in all the inbetweens. I also have the IM quick lock dumbbells with the heavy handle kit and 120lb expansion kit. With the heavy handle the dumbbells actually go up to 135lb. I could get by with just these if I needed, but I still like having the individual dumbbells. That's the Titan Fitness utility bench. The bench is OK, not real heavy duty. I have the IronMaster utility bench attachment for my SuperBench Pro, that came out after I already bought this.



    Better look at the IM dumbbells and additional plate storage.



    Barbell storage, I bought the Rogue wallmount storage just because the Titan was out of stock. I have a Titan Fitness 5' Oly bar, my old Hampton Oly bar, Rogue multi-grip bar and Rogue SSB. I only bought the Rogue bars because the Titan ones were out of stock at the time also. More IM SuperBench attachments on the ground. The leg ext/curl which I love. The preacher attachment and the short back utility bench attachment. I sold a dedicated ParaBody leg ext/curl bench to free up some room for my 1/2 rack and haven't missed it all, I think the IM attachment is that good. The Titan upright barbell holder is on the ground with my old Hampton curl bar and Titan trap bar.



    This is my latest addition, the Titan T series short squat stand with the half rack expansion kit. This fits perfectly under my low garage door and is very sturdy. I'm going to find a metal fabrication place and have them make a cross support for the top of the back weight storage uprights. I'm surprised Titan doesn't sell something like that. I called their customer service and they confirmed they don't make anything like that. I've got this set up for Hatfield squats, I have the XII:XI squat wedges and the Titan squat handles. It works great.

    Thanks for sharing. It’s nice feeling to get your gym equipped with what you need and what you want. I’m pretty satisfied with what I have now as well.

    Great gym. I added the Inspire FTX too and really like it (it was for my wife! I swear!! - she did get me over the edge though). Never thought about lying extensions on it but going to give it a whirl as I used to really like those on a cable when I first started lifting ages ago.

    I'm out of room and at the point where I have all my needs and all the wants that I can accommodate. Really enjoyed building it out over the years and kind of bummed to be "done" but anything I'd do from here would be extravagance and superfluous (ie replace the remaining standard plates with revolvers so all plates match, buy a fancy new power bar just because, upgrade my adjustable bench just because...). Reminds me to post some updated pictures as the layout for open space in the front is really improved with the FTX and getting rid of the Glute Ham.

    You definitely have all the needs in place - don't rush to finish the wants. It's a labor of love!

    Just a quick update - ceiling nearly finished on the gym; so it's probably going to shake out at just under 9 feet6inches when finished, and a floor area of just under 560 square feet...
