Buy your own gym and do away with ridiculously overpriced memberships, waiting times, losers and faulty gear forever. You may all laugh but I have saved my arse off and researched gym gear for years so that i can put my own together.

Hell yeah. I bought a power rack setup a few years ago and it’s great. I do miss the social aspect of gyms a little bit, but having a convenient home gym is well worth the trade off. No more parking hassles, and peak hour queues for equipment.

For $1k you could put together a starter power rack + bench + weights. That’s a pretty sweet deal considering that that will do 95% of gym users, and will last forever.

I’ve just ordered a new power rack because my body solid power rack was missing the pulley attachments. My power rack with high+low pulleys was only $400 + shipping – bargain – who needs gyms!
