Homemade Gym Equipment Movement?

Is there really a movement going on with homemade gym equipment? Seems like people from all walks of life are getting more creative with their surroundings and makin it happen right there in the raw.

Folks are getting tire of going to the globo gym and having to follow their set of rules on how to get a workout, how to handle the equipment, and how loud they can yell out – or maybe I should say how quiet they can yell.

For years now I’ve been a home gym guy. I love it! I have the knowledge to program my own workout routines and even if I didn’t, there’s always the trusty ol’ youtube.

I created this site for you, the guy or gal that’s looking to join the “movement” of the DIY’ers. A place that I can put my own creations out there for all to see, critique, improve upon, and even tell me how great I am for my genius mind and marvelous creativity 🙂

I’ll also take pleasure in adding other peoples creative genius to create a one stop shop of the best stuff out there. At least the best in my opinion.

There are tons of videos, tutorials, and instruction manuals detailing how to put this stuff together. Jedd Johnson has put together a great video series on homemade grip strength stuff. If you’re into the grip strength scene you should check it out.

In the meantime, if you have an idea yourself, or if you’ve seen a great idea somewhere else, please contact me and I’ll try to get it here for all to see.

Thanks for spending some time with me – now go do work!

    I love working out at home as well. I just found your site by an accident, I was looking for homemade bulgarian training bag and found this wonderful site. I wanted to try the bulgarian bag but when I saw the price tag that took my spirits right out :), but knowing I can make one helps a lot. Thank you

    Hey, this site rocks!

    We should update this site and make it HUGE! I really think this stuff is awesome. I’ve wanted to outfit a home gym, but my gosh it’s SO expensive! Even for a pair of 25lb. dumbbells is steep (don’t laugh at me!), so I use big water bottles. 🙂

    Drop me a line, I’d like to help out in any way I can! Bookmarked the site.

    Have a great day!
