My Own Little Gym

Postby Ally » Thu Apr 12, 2007 8:56 am

I have just realised that I am creating my own little gym downstairs under our house....sure it is not flash and there is no mirrors (thankful for THAT small miracle)...there is no air cons, bright lights, new equiptment, or hot sweaty bodies (except mine!!) I have my u-beaut exercise bike that doesn't have a timer/distance/calorie count on it anymore (a damn rat chewed the chord), my rusty old rowing machine that still works a treat and after replying to Dee's thread about besser blocks, that is the next item I will be adding to my "gym"....for my birthday I will be requesting a cheap 34cm tv and the cheapest dvd player so that I can also set it up downstairs so that I can exercise when I want to and not when the telly is free!! Once I get under the 125kg mark there will also be a treaddy going under there too......

Just thought I would share this with you all as it just goes to show that fitness and exercise does not have to cost a fortune or an expensive gym membership!!

Woohoo good on you Ally. I would love to have my own gym but I just don't have the room for any more equipment unless it is small. I mean I do have a gym but it really only has weight stuff. All the cardio is on DVD which is why I have my comp in here.

Sounds like you are getting really sorted and have a great variety to exercise with.

Thanks Kim.....I might have to put that insignia up on the garage door!! :D My aim is to get Scott to paint under the house white (I am sure the landlord won't mind :? ) so it is not so dark and dingy!

I have a tube train that I bought when I first tried the ultra lite diet. Whole gym work out that can store in a cupboard? Unfortunately, it is so small and compact and convenient that I have NO idea where it is after we moved house :?

LOL oh dear I read that as tube brain and wondered what that had to do with exercise. :roll: See what happens when I am off work for a week my brain goes to mush.

OK so tube train what is it? Sounds great if you can store it away easily but as you say not so good if you loose it. Sounds interesting.

Losing it is not so difficult... Losing it when you're MOVING HOUSE is a different story altogether.

It's resistance band training and it comes with a video so you get a complete workout. I love mine but you do need to be disciplined enough to USE it at home when noone is around to tell you to (I'm not). It's a good way of doing resistance muscle-building though, when you are on a budget and lacking space.

Tube Train (Exercise Program)


Resistance Exercise System to Build Muscle Mass. A simple system of resistance exercise designed to assist the general non-gym-going public to achieve and maintain a healthy level of lean muscle mass, which has been shown to be the most important "Biomarker of Ageing" in the pursuit of vitality and longevity.

this has inadvertantly sprang up under the house, so it is right out of the way, which is great!! I was always complaining that I wanted my stuff upstairs, but this works really well!

Nah Kate....Racumin is great for rats!! they love it...we had a lot of them from time to time because of the chook food and goat food...then we went and spent 70 bucks on 2 drums that nothing could get into, then we had to get rid of the goats and the fox killed all the chooks..... :roll: we ended up buying the racumin and we put it on top of the wardrobe under the house that night intending to scatter the sachets everywhere over the next couple of days and we came home a couple of days later to find the packets on the floor slashed open and all the 120 sachets gone.....heheheh no more rats/mice!! :P

Good on you 4 setting up your own gym! :D

I hate gyms, so my plan is when I move out next month is to set up my own gym in the garage....

Just gonna keep it simple, you dont need heaps to get a great body. Have been sussing out home gyms on ebay...so will be getting one of them...a treadmill and just some free weights!

Plus my dvds so will be rockin!! he he...

So yeah good on you, the best bit is you can do it whenever you want in the privacy of your own home...no sweaty,lycra wearing muscley people to fight over the machines with!! HA HA :D

Sounds great, Ally!

I have a little boxing studio (speed ball & punch/kick bag) out in our dingy old shed - so dingy that it's not very appealing to use... so I hardly ever us it!
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
