hi friends welcome back to the channelmy name’s Sophie and this is Just Doing This Now and I’m going to show you mygarage gym lastly we are at last got it done quite a few weeks of doing nothingon furlough for me Ruth carried on operating I decided to gave my time into somethinguseful and turn our dream of a garage gym into world and this video is howwe did it so first things firstly we needed to clear of clutter so Ruth and I boughta shed and we crowded it with all the garden stuff and anything that couldpossibly “il be gone” that wouldn’t perishbeing in a shed, the remainder we’ve put up here in the apex in the roof it’s reallyimportant to make sure the concrete storey is closed you are eligible to perfectly justput your mats down not a problem but you would still have a lot of dust in theair we had to sweep all out I reckon I believe we’ve got Hoover and we hoovered it all out that just was in the air we had to wet the storey merely to lessen downthe junk and that was before we addrest the sealant, it’s quite a messy job sotry and do it on a warm day just so it bakes quicker the same will apply to thesealant it will bone-dry quicker and the same applies to the paint now at this extent Iwill say if you do want to keep your gym budget to a minimum you don’t actuallyneed depict you really need the sealant so you could perfectly lean any kind offlooring down without having to paint the flooring however me being me I wantedto paint the floor so we get with this lovely grey and “its from” WilkosWilkinsons in the UK and it was 18 for the flowerpot it’s never gonna be aperfect undertaking but I think in terms of for what we want it for really happy withthe finish there are more expensive brands out there but it just wasn’tnecessary for us so all in all so far our flooringcost us 48 then we go onto the rugs so these are our rubber matteds theseare from a firebrand that I’ll insert now but they are available throughout the UKand I have investigated other CrossFitters with them on their Instagram pages theyreally are easy to get hold of, we positioned the matting down throughout the whole ofthe garage it time wasn’t necessary in some parts, but because we can get hold of it we’ll probably buy some moreat some site won’t we Ruth and with that you can buy hemming as well so if you want toneaten it up that’s fine but for us we knew we weren’t gonna like utilize it rightup into the wall so it didn’t matter for us all in all precisely doing a ranging total, these mattings cost around 150 pounds but you can get horse stall mats only get them insteadit’s a lot thicker than what we’ve got but we just use these for when we wantto drop loads on the flooring when we’re doing material overhead the second thing we foundwith these mats is that they were really greasy and slick so it was reallyimportant for us to ensure that they had better tread because you wouldn’t wantto be doing a jackas on this floor and then go flying with heaviness over yourhead it’s quite a health and safety threat so we impeded them outside to weather butwe likewise clean-living them with degreasers but unquestionably “ve been thinking about” braving yourmats I know it voices quirky but they were just ridiculously greasy when wepurchased them and yeah I can’t imagine this being any different for anyone elseit must be what they put one over them when they induce them we do have a Concept-2rower and it’s been so handy if you’re like me and you don’t specially like runningout in the coldnes breeze and rain this is great, aged IKEA reflects because who didn’t own these whenever they 18 “hes also” an IKEA mirror but this is from an old-time wardrobe so and the Wardrobe doors are up thereso it’s quite helpful this is my Wolverson 15 kilo barbell that Ruth kindly boughtfor me one Valentine’s era I echo Thank You Ruth and it’s been great tofinally set it to good use because I’ve had it for about two years but neverhave any values and still don’t our are on loan from the Bullpen Thank YouBullpen now we have our little screen to do handstand push-ups a bit moreexperience probably should have set something weary behind it so it didn’tcrack but it does mean you don’t scuff your favorite Metcons so and that wasabout 25 from B& Q you could get a smaller one to merely fit theheight of where your feet pas but if you like me and you really put your ass ontothe wall then you want to keep your bum clean just got an old-time poster up heremy mummy got this etched on my fifth and final London Marathon bless her andwhen your legs get tired run with your heartit was meant to say “don’t trust that fart” but my brother-in-law forgot whatmy mom wanted to have on there satisfy on credit from the Bullpen so it simply meanswe can drop the heaviness and not annoy too much about the flooring marketplace powerand I will fasten those to a load vest when I get one or a baggage when I get onein the meantime they decorate in the gym we’ve got our lovely medals before doingCrossfit and functional fitness Ruth and I used to cycle a lot we both had roadbikes I sold mine because mine was terrible fit anyway we used to run andcycle and this is Ruth’s and mines on the other, you can’t callyourself or garage gym if you don’t have a clock and we gotthis one from Amazon I can’t remember the rate I’ll insert it now but it’sgreat for the sizing we don’t need any biggerwe don’t need any louder it’s just brilliant and having the timer justreally adds that a little bit of incitement I need when I’m schooling fromhome obviously we’ve got some neat charming Guides now umm 1.50 from therange worth every penny if “youre gonna” me what was really important for us was thelighting’s so before we had a single bulb in now but our electrical friendscame and they installed to striip flames for us it’s really important just so youcan see what you’re doing but too you need the good lighting for the selfiesand all the Instagram posts and videos you’re gonna fix here are my leanmedals compared against Ruth’s obviously we’ve got my ratify because you need to know who I am the pride flag this was literally about2. 30 off Amazon lovely thank you Amazon and also we needed a whiteboard and this was literally about 18 off Amazon and we did get bit of adiscount because it’s got a bit of a dent in it but you know it doesn’tmatter but we thought we’d fill it with some photos because it’s not reallyfilled with PB’s yet but we will get there we’ve got a LUSH bow wrap up there Iabsolutely enjoy that blueprint and one thing I’ve realized with your garage gymis if there’s things that you don’t want to get rid of that you really like butmight seem a bit too sleazy for your house then you know you gym is the place to settle them because you know why not why not, again another patchhere that I need a container for yes like medals, magnets of theplaces been so as much as we enjoy this brick we decided to paint the garagejust to make it feel a bit bigger the intention was to paint the whole garagewhite but there’s lots of little vent gaps in these bricks and it was a painin the arse so Ruth and I decided only to focus on this back wall but we think itlooks great I make it did take about 80 hours but 80 hours well expended ourlockdown workout won’t be the same again if the Bullpen has known just theirplace like I can’t even imagine I can’t even do the maths of how much this would expense if we’d have bought it as we know it’s really hard to get your hands onany kind of gym equipment at the moment it was about six weeks and to lock downbefore I get hold of these but 15 kilo boobs and they cut we got these from the The Gym Company I’ll insert their connect now really helpful howeverit was 105 including postage which which hurt a lot when I know thatI could buy these from Argos for 60, if simply I got there quicker butyou know what no bitterness operating our lane through we’ve got all of our like bandsand trash and towels I’ve got my clutch and material, this is just an age-old IKEA coat stand and it was too good throw away and it kind of fits well in the angle herewith our freestanding pull-up dip stand thing Ruth and I foundthis on Facebook Marketplace literally two years ago and it is 40 I thinknow if you bought this new it would be literally 200 we’re very grateful for this and it really meant that we could get a strict work inand not lose that during knockdown in order to save space Ruth’s bicycle usuallysits along here as well I most recommend these bike fastens justso it’s just out the direction and yeah your bikes gonna be safewe have shelving crap we’ve got our ab rug lent from the Bullpen but we’llprobably get one of those ourselves at some theatre such is shoes now and then we’ve got a few bit of Globo gym parts I’ve still hitherto to use my Olympic ringshave the best intents and the issue is for the Wolverson pull-up bar we haveoutside hanging off the garage wall but one thing I’m really pleased with is ourplyo box this was from a gym about 40 hours apart they were obviously sellingsome old substance and we managed to do this for 30 tried and measured it’sgreat the only thing we’re missing is a little pits you can put your hands into carry em I’ve got a few old-fashioned kettlebells here but my favorite is my2 0 kilo kettlebell which I won with Wolverson for my event from my PB dance…Really really chuffed to get this wedecided to go with a bit heavier than the various kinds of prescribed rx value justbecause we believed why not chalk we just bought the chalk from Amazon and then bought this pail it was literally 4 yeah any gymwouldn’t be right without your own personal branding and I do have more onthe space foam rollers I imply how big is this this big you get two on that, myother favourite part of deco actually is my female lifter flag there’s stillsome flecks that we want to buy for the gym one of them has become a hunker I can’tsay it’s easy for some to say I find this difficult a squat rack stand asquat rack squatting rack yes and so we still want to buy squat ask you stillwant to buy some hunker rack so that’s all that’s missing truly from what wecan do and patently when the Bullpen have their trash at will need to buysome and bumper platefuls but we’re really happy with our setup here you cancertainly get a sweat on and get a good workout in so thanks for watching thisvideo on my garage gym if you crave some more information on anything you’ve seen orheard in this video comment below and I’ll get back to you in the meantimestay safe and I’ll see you in the next video it’s 2020 what isn’t powered by USB? these daybreaks apparently
