I’m always mentally building my own garage gym. But can never justify it given free access to two excellent gyms at work, plus a good turbo set-up in the spare room.
Top of my list for my hypothetical garage gym is a sauna (hot, not infra red). They can be bought cheap off Gumtree (collect and dismantle). Power rack, weights, kettle bells, clubs are a given. Perhaps a finger board on the wall too. Money no object then an endless pool but they’re huge and expensive.
Good topic. I’m getting my garage together, which will mainly consist of Turbo/Zwift/TV.
However I’m considering renting a treadmill for the winter to prepare for Endure 24. Won’t be running on one exclusively by any means but family commitments and a treadmill at home make the convenience appealing.
Seems like £60p/m for a decent one is the rate?
Presumably hire has the advantage of effectively giving you a service contract to deal with any reliability issues - which seems to be a significant concern for home gym treadmills.
You can also send them back over the summer and free up space!
In our last house I had reduced ventilation to keep it warmer; as a result mould started forming on various items in the garage. So it’s a fine balance. I only used to use the side access door in that house though; in the current house the main door is open a lot more.
