The garage gym project is finally complete! Last year in May I took a week off to raise the second floor of the garage. I needed more height in order to have room for the power rack. The gym has been functional for a while now but I was not able to finish the gym until this week. Building on a limited budget and doing all the work myself turned this into a 13 month project.
The good news is it’s finally done and I could not be happier! Looking back at what the garage was like when I first started, to what it is now, makes me truly appreciate the amount of work and effort that went into creating this. I have never built anything like this before, I just knew what I wanted and got to work. Focusing on the task at hand and having faith that it would all workout was how the gym was built. There was no blueprint or master plan with everything figured out ahead of time. Just a dream and the willingness to take the first step. In many ways this mirrors bodybuilding, you have a goal and you just jump in and make it happen. You don’t have all the answers but you have the confidence you will figure it out.
Above is the video showing you the completed gym. If you are interested in seeing all that went into the project you can check out all of the posts here. The order is from oldest at the bottom to newest at the top.
