Started to pick up the bar collection I've always wanted.
Texas Powerbar for Bench
Mastadon (the Ultimate) for squat look how fat that beast is I've had well over 900 on one and it doesn't move!

12 sets of 5ft 5/8" Chain with all of the connectors and adjustable hanging chain. Also scored the killer plate lat pull that is so smooth it's ridiculous.


Built my 1 through 4 boards this morning.


Built a chalk bowl


Added a treadmill from a gym retooling their equipment

Power Rack and Box squat



Wall Finished with gym logo created by one of our awesome members!







Competition Bench from Texas Strength (All the bands and the spud straps for the Elite Monolift that will arrive within two weeks) Been waiting a long time.


Put an AC in the window got a mini fridge :)

So far it's been MJR and myself lifting but I anticipate Go Away, Bull, POB and Hawk before too long.

Trying to build something special one day at a time.

The Smith machine is awesome made by a company back in the day called German Made out of Baltimore, the bar in the machine is a brand new York Bar and it's heavy, great machine came with an equally awesome adjustable bench from the same company, actually the lat machine is also same company.

I have dumbbells up to 45, Sunday I drive to PA and pick up York pro dumbbells 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100's, should be just about there.

Man that looks great!
Old-school done up right.
When you get your mono you'll be set. Awesome!

You are such an incredible person Halo and I'm very happy for you to see this dream coming together.

Plus your good heart willing to share it with us here.

This gym is like the best thing Santa could ever bring to us big kids.

It has all the very best equipment.

Was wondering where the wall of mirrors is but that's the bodybuilder in me talking :D

Your wife did a wonderful job!!! Great lady!
