Awesome Crossfit gyms; home and garage setups
Up until now us men used to be busy in the tool shed making spice racks or fixing bicycles, now when the wife shouts “honey, dinner is ready” we’re busy trying to smash a PB on a snatch. Here is a collection of some awesome Crossfit garage gym that will get motivated to build your own Crossfit gym haven.
Top Crossfit Garage Gyms
Notice the neon gymnastic rings! You can get them at Rogue Fitness for $71.50
In case you still want to use the garage for its intended purpose, splitting your space into 2 works well. Nice car too!
Great equipment to add to your Crossfit garage gym
Checkered flooring looks very nice, the bar rack is a very handy piece of equipment, they call this the “Gun Rack”, cost is $52.50 at Rogue.
For those who don’t know where to put their rings in your Crossfit gym, this person used a ceiling mount. Your ceilings do need to be high enough if you want to do ring dips.
Good lighting in your garage can make a huge difference in your garage setup, the flooring is nice in this one.
Laying out your gym properly saves on space, this garage gym even has a TV, I can just imagine how many hours are spent in this garage!
This bright garage is a great size, I’m envious of their large tractor tyre, who doesn’t love tyre flipping!
Personalising your gym like this Crossfitter did, black walls and ceiling works well. Notice the platform? These are awesome for dropping weight on, it absorbs the shock and reduces the noise, also, the neighbours will love you!
They sell the platform and rubber mats separately, the platform is $255 and the tiles are $498.50, a bit pricey.
You can make your own, my box built 2. Just remember to build it where you are using it, because it’s quite heavy to move around. Here’s a Youtube video of a DIY platform.
A nice clean setup, one thing to consider is installing a timer, the Rogue timer costs $269.00 excluding remote, but you can get them cheaper on places like Ebay for around $100.
Great colour scheme, the full rig here has enough space for 2 people to workout at the same time. There are a few options for rigs you can check out here: http://www.roguefitness.com/rogue-rigs-racks
Awesome setup here, the sled and the rower are great additions to any garage gym. The sled can be a brutal workout, the sled alone costs $265.00. You can have a few attachments that will make it more interesting.
Different Sled attachments will give you some workout variety.
Did you notice the one that looks like a lawnmower? Interesting idea, this is in fact called “The Lawnmower” attachment.
What’s a sled without harnesses, these 2 options work great with pulling. Also, not forgetting the rope!
Old school looking rig is a nice size, with all the bits you need, that step ladder looking attachment is called the Flying Pull-Up bar $250.00, you can attach it to a standard rig.
Even with single garages you can fit enough equipment in to do your workouts.
This 2 tier garage is perfect, who needs a gym?!
Here’s a DIY Crossfit gym setup, notice the pull up bar made out of metal piping. You can buy metal piping like this from any plumbing store, a lot cheaper than a rig. The threaded flanges are under $10, these connect the steel piping to the wall and ceiling. The steel piping you can get from places like Home Depot for $20 a pipe, here’s everything you need http://www.homedepot.com/b/Plumbing-Pipes-Fittings-Galvanized-Pipe-Fittings/N-5yc1vZbuu8.
A heavy duty Crossfit garage setup, check the assault bike (puke)!
I dig the tyre smasher, that hammer they call a Slater Slammer, you can get these at Rogue Fitness for $232.50 http://www.roguefitness.com/slater-slammer
One of my favourites, even has a living room glass table! The rower pictured is the new running machine for home gyms, this one goes for $900 at Rogue Fitness http://www.roguefitness.com/gray-concept-2-model-d-rower-pm5, you can get them cheaper on Ebay for around $700 upwards.
This timber garage is one of my personal favourites, it has everything I would want in a gym. You can buy a package if you have the cash, here’s a nice setup for $2725.00. There are a few available at Rogue Fitness http://www.roguefitness.com/equipment-packages/crossfit-packages
Don’t have a garage? Why not get a metal one built for your Crossfit gear? Check the extra side shutter for more ventilation.
Convert a room into a Crossfit gym
If you haven’t got a garage, why not consider a room, here is a collection of rooms that have been converted into Crossfit gyms.
An awesome space for that home gym, has everything you need for hitting those WODs hard!
Even with limited space you can squeeze in your stuff and get a solid workout.
A huge space with some nice fake grass to do your burpees, push ups and lunges on.
One of the most luxurious home Crossfit gyms I’ve ever seen, I’m drooling with envy!
Genius way of fitting in your Crossfit garage gym into a narrow space.
No room inside? Outdoor Crossfit gyms
For those who have an unused outdoor space, enjoy the sunshine while you workout. Here are some of the coolest outdoor spaces for Crossfitters.
A full Crossfit rig, looks like so much fun!
Working out in the snow feels like a challenge!
My favourite is the rope that is tied to the tree, who wouldn’t want to climb that!
Is this Crossfit garage gym heaven?
Stuck for space, this guy stuck his setup on the porch.
This rig has a Dirty South Bar, a must for any rig setup in your Crossfit garage gym. These are great for the bar muscle up. $175.00 at Rogue Fitness.
Love this layout, these mats are fantastic for stations when doing WODs.
