How to set up your own Garage Gym

The most striking difference between the common "Fitter", so the owner of a Gym Membership and the common runner, lies in the Motivation. Most of the runners in my circle would never voluntarily give up your Training, on the contrary. Most of the Fitter to solve, however, your Gym subscription, in order to motivate themselves. You hope, you would train in an effort to recoup the expenditure, then also.

And then there are those that build up in the Garage, your own Gym, because All good things start in a Garage. I live opposite a gym, train at home. Even better, I train with my friend, Mary Argast. She is a talented Olympic weight lifterin and aspiring personal trainer. And above all, it has a Garage-Gym. It is the best Gym in the world.

In the fitness scene, the subject of Garage Gyms has received lately some attention. The Garage Gym is "Reduce to the Max" in pure culture. Because Fitness is not the supply of training equipment, not your body fat percentage, not a same-named Playlist and not even clothes or shoes. Fitness is a state of mind, the willingness to work on his body and to improve. Who has understood it, is a Garage-Gymer.

What are the advantages of a Garage-Gyms? First of all, you can train at any time, has no directions, and no audience. In the breaks between the Sets of little house work done, and the fridge is too close to the handle. However, the establishment of an on-site Gym is time-consuming. As a equipment, all it takes is a barbell with various weight plates, an adjustable bench, a power rack (a kind of rack to do pull-UPS and the long drop barbell), dumbbells, and elastic bands. Of course this can be expanded as desired with dumbbells, Kettlebells, Plyo-Box, and the Like.

of Course, such a Gym also has disadvantages: The device is not cheap and takes up space. Therefore, it is usually limited to the Essentials. Quality is also important here, which is why a consultation is worth the effort – for example, there are good Second hand deals. In addition, the private Gym of course requires a base knowledge over strength training and intrinsic Motivation. These factors are given but, there is nothing Better.
