That's fucking awsome!!!
I just added up the cost of equipment from elite with the listed shipping. It came out to $11,558. There are about 6 specialty bars that I can see in there, plus bands, plus chains, plus a full set of dumbells, plus alot of plates and various other accessories. I'd probably put the sticker at $20,000 total. But that seems well worth it, with all that equipment moved into a little bit bigger space you could have a complete training center/private gym. That's ballin outrageous though basically writing a $20k check to elite, I'm sure they gave him a discount on shipping at least.
That's got to be close to right. I was looking in to building my own gym and I estimated the cost to be right at $20,000.
dude post the want no more just for kicks i love that picture
no cable crossover?
for those who don't want to click.
One of the best parts of working for EliteFTS (besides the diet advice from Dave) is helping people create their own home gyms. Several months ago, I began corresponding with Lee Gerney on building his own home gym. Like many of you, he was sick and tired of training in commercial gyms and wanted somewhere where he could train the way he wanted to, with whom he wanted to, and without the BS and distractions. His dream became a reality, and I think the pictures speak for themselves.
Here’s a highlight list of Lee’s gym:
professional 45-degree back raise
pro reverse hyperextension
3 X 3 power rack
deluxe glute ham raise
plate loaded lat pull-down
safety squat yoke bar
chest supported row
dumbbell flat bench
0–90 incline bench
Damn I'd suck some major...well you know
How much is the monolift... since I wouldn't necessarily need that?
Good find. 20 grand, huh?
I've been thinking about renting out a loft just for training myself and others.
How much square feet do you think would be ideal?
the mono is $3000 + shipping
A monolift is $3000.00. You would need at least 1000 square feet.
square footage... depending on how many people you will have at a time... a two car garage would be plenty. We have two rented storage bays at Southside and can (un)comfortably fit 20 people inside.
ideal? 1000 sq ft.
but you could probably get away with 400-600
this is one side of Southside:
So imagine another bay next to that, with a room built in the back for storage/changing/etc
3 people at most...
Would probably replace the monolift with some type of cardio equipment... treadmill, stepmill or concept II rower being the top choices.
The cardio equuipment would likely be the most expensive.
That's badass. I agree that the only thing that would make it better is more space.
hopefully i can expand my basement gym after the new year. after the xmas shit comes upstairs i'm hoping to put it in the attic instead of back down the basement
If I had that gym, a nice home bar with at least 3 beers on tap, home theater(62" plus), and a 3 car garage with full metal fab work shop, I'd never leave the house.
