Gymchat 209 - Setting up a Home Gym (with Josh Hewett)

How do you go about it?


The Home Gym. If you're just getting started, training at home may be the perfect option : the ability to do what you want, when you want; without anyone looking on.
So where do you start - what do you need in terms of space/budget/equipment etc? Should you buy new stuff, second-hand or make your own? Do you miss out on anything by training at home, rather than in a commercial gym somewhere? Helping us tackle this one is Strongman Josh Hewett, alongside Personal Trainer Kirk Fontaine. If you'd like to ask a question or share your own love of training at home, join us on the Hangout. Details below.
