HELPING YOU GET STRONGER SINCE 2004

The Perfect Home Gym
Posted By Scott Bird

Kim Wood's gymWhat would you have in your perfect home gym – if there were no financial or space constraints at all? Free weights, machines, kettlebells; a mix of all three perhaps? Just a large lifting platform, a bar and a pile of bumper plates?
While you think about your own idyllic workout environment, here’s a look at some of the gear I’d have in mine.

Indoors

Outdoors

Of course, there’s always a steady supply of things that’d simply be great to have; but the above setup would keep things solidly going for a very long time. How about you, what would you have in your perfect gym?

Incidentally, if this has got you thinking about grabbing one for yourself, swing by the SttB Strength Store. Massive range.
