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 finally we are at last got it done quite a few weeks of doing nothingon furlough for me Ruth carried on use I decided to framed my time into somethinguseful and turn our dream of a garage gym into reality and this video is howwe did it so first things first 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 remain we’ve put up here in the apex in the ceiling it’s reallyimportant got to make sure the concrete floor is closed you are eligible to absolutely justput your rugs down not a problem but you would still have a lot of dust in theair we had to sweep all out I speculate I believe we’ve got Hoover and we hoovered it all out that precisely was in the air we had to wet the storey merely to stifle downthe dirt and that was before we worked the sealant, it’s quite a messy job sotry and do it on a warm day just so it dries quicker the same will apply to thesealant it will bone-dry quicker and the same applies to the paint now at this object Iwill say if you do want to keep your gym budget to a minimum you don’t actuallyneed make-up you precisely need the sealant so you could utterly threw any kind offlooring down without having to paint the floor however me being me I wantedto paint the floor so we extended with this lovely grey and this is from WilkosWilkinsons in the UK and it was 18 for the jackpot it’s never gonna be aperfect job 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 only wasn’tnecessary for us so all in all so far our flooringcost us 48 then we go onto the matteds so such is our rubber mattings theseare from a firebrand that I’ll insert here but they are available throughout the UKand I have realized other CrossFitters with them on their Instagram pages theyreally are easy to get hold of, we set the matting down throughout the ofthe garage it precisely wasn’t necessary in some parts, but because we can get hold of it we’ll probably buy some moreat some extent 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 exploit it rightup into the wall so it didn’t matter for us all in all really doing a feeing total, these rugs expense around 150 pounds but you can get horse stall rugs precisely get them insteadit’s a lot thicker than what we’ve got but we just use these for when we wantto drop heaviness on the storey when we’re doing material overhead the second 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 jolt on this storey and then go flying with weights over yourhead it’s quite a state and safety threat so we deterred them outside to weather butwe also clean-living them with degreasers but certainly “ve been thinking about” braving yourmats I know it reverberates peculiar 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 manufacture 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 air and rain this is great, aged IKEA mirrors because who didn’t own these when they were 18 this is 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 date I echo Thank You Ruth and it’s been great tofinally given 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 “were having” our little screen to do handstand push-ups a bit moreexperience probably should have placed 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 just fit theheight of where your feet turn 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 posting up heremy mommy got 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 loan from the Bullpen so it precisely meanswe can drop the heaviness and not fret too much about the flooring busines powerand I will append those to a force vest when I get one or a baggage when I get onein the meantime they embellish 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 premium 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 motivation I need when I’m teach fromhome clearly we’ve got some nice cute Directs here umm 1.50 from therange importance every penny if you were 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 sunrises 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 obligate here are my leanmedals comparison with Ruth’s obviously we’ve got my clue because you need to know who I am the respect 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 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 love that scheme and one thing I’ve realized with your garage gymis if there’s things that you don’t want to be disposed of that you really like butmight seem a little too shabby for your house then you know you gym is the place to position them because you know why not why not, again another patchhere that I need a handbag for yes like medals, magnets of theplaces been so as much as we love this brick we made the decision to coat 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 only to focus on this back wall but we think itlooks great I intend it did take about 80 hours but 80 hours well devoted 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 to seeing 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 fasten downbefore I went hold of these but 15 kilo dumbbells and they chipped 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 great deal when I know thatI could buy these from Argos for 60, if merely I got there quicker butyou know what no miss driving our method through we’ve got all of our like bandsand trash and towels I’ve got my grip and trash, this is just an old IKEA coat stand and it was too good throw away and it kind of fits well in the area 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 “wouldve been” 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 motorcycle usuallysits along now as well I most recommend these bike hookings justso it’s just out the direction and yeah your motorcycles 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 stagecoach such is shoes now and then we’ve got a few bit of Globo gym fragments I’ve still yet to use my Olympic ringshave the very best aims 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 away they were obviously sellingsome age-old trash and we managed to make this for 30 tried and tested it’sgreat the only thing we’re missing is a little flaws you can put your hands into carry em I’ve got a few old kettlebells here but my favorite is my2 0 kilo kettlebell which I won with Wolverson for my rivalry from my PB dance…Really truly chuffed to get this wedecided to go with a bit heavier than the various kinds of prescribed rx value justbecause we mulled why not chalk we just bought the chalk from Amazon and then bought this barrel 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 make how big-hearted is this this big you get two on that, myother favourite fragment of deco actually is my female lifter flag there’s stillsome bits that we want to buy for the gym one of them being a squat I can’tsay it’s easy for some to say I find this very difficult a hunker rack stand asquat rack squat rack yes and so we still want to buy squat ask you stillwant to buy some doodly-squat rack so that’s all that’s missing genuinely from what wecan do and apparently when the Bullpen have their nonsense at will need to buysome and bumper layers 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 require 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 light-headeds apparently
