Finally finished the Gym

I don't know how many of you would be interested in this, I know a few that are. I have been building a new gym over the last year including the room itself.
I finally finished it off today putting up the last of the mirrors.

That is for doing Squats, I keep it up all the way if I'm not using it & it is handy to keep my change out plates on.

That is a beautiful gym. Did you build the Smith machine yourself?

And I have to ask: Does your wife lift weights too?

That's where I'd be after work and weekends. You still need some replica swords on the wall.

Very nice!!! Did you install glass mirrors, or did you go with mylar mirrors (I think the company that makes them is mirrorlite). My wife installed them in her studio, and you can lift a 4' x 8' mylar mirror with your pinky. The other benefit is that it reduced her liability in case someone crashed into the mirror.

Very nice and extensive (for a home, at the very least) gym.

Want to tutor me in my Manufacturing Planning and Control Class? haha.

the good news is, that looks nicer than most gyms you'd pay to join and go to.

the bad news is you now have no excuse to ever skip a workout
