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 ultimately we are at last got it done quite a few weeks of doing nothingon furlough for me Ruth carried on running I made the decision to applied my time into somethinguseful and turn our dream of a garage gym into actuality 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 go in there 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 floor is closed you can perfectly justput your rugs down not a number of problems 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 simply was in the air we had to wet the floor time to soften downthe junk and that was before we applied the sealant, it’s quite a messy job sotry and do it on a warm day just so it cools quicker the same will apply to thesealant it will dry quicker and the same applies to the paint now at this pitch Iwill say if you do want to keep your gym budget to a minimum you don’t actuallyneed dye you merely need the sealant so you were able to perfectly employed any kind offlooring down without having to paint the floor however me being me I wantedto paint the floor so we became with this lovely grey and this is from WilkosWilkinsons in the UK and it was 18 for the bowl it’s never gonna be aperfect responsibility 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 time wasn’tnecessary for us so all in all so far our flooringcost us 48 then we go onto the matteds so the latter are our rubber mats theseare from a label that I’ll insert now but they are available throughout the UKand I have received other CrossFitters with them on their Instagram pages theyreally are easy to get hold of, we made the matting down throughout the whole ofthe garage it time wasn’t required in some parts, but because we can get hold of it we’ll probably buy some moreat some detail won’t we Ruth and with that you can buy edging as well so if you want toneaten it up that’s fine but for us we knew we weren’t gonna like employment it rightup into the wall so it didn’t matter for us all in all simply doing a moving total, these matteds expense around 150 pounds but you can get horse stall matteds precisely get them insteadit’s a good deal thicker than what we’ve got but we just use these for when we wantto drop heaviness on the flooring when we’re doing nonsense overhead the other thing we foundwith these matteds is that they were really greasy and slippery so it was reallyimportant for us to ensure that they had better tread because you wouldn’t wantto be doing a dork on this floor and then go flying with weights over yourhead it’s quite a health and safety peril so we retained them outside to weather butwe also clean-living them with degreasers but surely “ve been thinking about” braving yourmats I know it sounds strange 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 shape them we do have a Concept-2rower and it’s been so handy if you’re like me and you don’t especially like runningout in the cold breeze and rain this is great, old-time IKEA mirrors because who didn’t own these when they were 18 “hes also” an IKEA mirror but this is from an aged wardrobe so and the Wardrobe doorways are up thereso it’s quite handy this is my Wolverson 15 kilo barbell that Ruth kindly boughtfor me one Valentine’s epoch I cancel Thank You Ruth and it’s been great tofinally settled it to good use because I’ve had it for about two years but neverhave any forces 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 positioned something praise 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 exactly fit theheight of where your feet rise 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-fashioned poster up heremy mummy went this published 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 time meanswe can drop the weights and not upset too much about the storey sell powerand I will fasten those to a force vest when I get one or a pocket 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 price I’ll insert it now but it’sgreat for the width 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 motive I need when I’m training fromhome undoubtedly we’ve got some neat charming Precedes here umm 1.50 from therange importance every penny if “youre gonna” me what was really important for us was thelighting’s so before we had a single bulb in here but our electrical friendscame and they installed to striip light-footeds 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 impel here are my leanmedals compared to Ruth’s obviously we’ve got my sign because you need to know who I am the dignity signal 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 chip 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 more but we will get there we’ve got a LUSH braid 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 little too tacky for your house then you know you gym is the place to employed them because you know why not why not, again another patchhere that I need a purse for yes like buttons, magnets of theplaces been so as much as we adore 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 faults in these bricks and it was a painin the arse so Ruth and I decided really to focus on this back wall but we think itlooks great I imply it did take about 80 hours but 80 hours well invested ourlockdown workout won’t be the same again if the Bullpen has known only theirplace like I can’t even imagine I can’t even do the maths of how much this would expenditure 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 got hold of these but 15 kilo dumbbells and they chipped we got these from the The Gym Company I’ll insert their associate here really helpful howeverit was 105 including postage which which hurt a good deal when I know thatI could buy these from Argos for 60, if only I got there quicker butyou know what no unhappiness wielding our path through we’ve got all of our like bandsand trash and towels I’ve got my control and trash, well an age-old IKEA coat stand and it was too good throw away and it kind of fits well in the region 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 precisely meant that we could get a strict work inand not lose that during knockdown in order to save space Ruth’s bike usuallysits along here as well I highly recommend these motorcycle robs justso it’s just out the way and yeah your bikes gonna be safewe have shelving crap we’ve got our ab matted loaned from the Bullpen but we’llprobably get one of those ourselves at some theatre the latter are shoes now and then we’ve got a few bit of Globo gym parts I’ve still yet to use my Olympic ringshave the best intentions 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 instants apart they were obviously sellingsome old-time substance and we have been successful in get this for 30 tried and researched it’sgreat the only thing we’re missing is a little defects you can put your hands into carry em I’ve got a few aged kettlebells here but my favorite is my2 0 kilo kettlebell which I won with Wolverson for my rivalry from my PB dance…Really actually chuffed to get this wedecided to go with a bit heavier than the kind of prescribed rx weight justbecause we belief why not chalk we just bought the chalk from Amazon and then bought this bucket it was literally 4 yeah any gymwouldn’t be right without your own personal branding and I do have more onthe behavior sud rollers I intend how large-hearted is this this big you get two on that, myother favourite chip of deco actually is my female lifter flag there’s stillsome chips that we want to buy for the gym one of them being a hunker I can’tsay it’s easy for some to say I find this very difficult a squatting rack stand asquat rack squat 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 apparently when the Bullpen have their material at will need to buysome and bumper plates but we’re really happy with our setup now you cancertainly get a sweat on and get a good workout in so thanks for watching thisvideo on my garage gym if you demand 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
