Here's my workout space, I dedicated a room in the basement. Older BodySolid Smith gym with leg extension, preacher curl attachment, dip station ect. I bought this smith gym in 1997!! These things really are life time guarantee! And yes I use it, hard! Also in the space is a leg press machine, stationary bike, 100lb. heavy bag w/ speed bag, misc. free wheights, and resistance bands. I just need to add a dumbbell rack and get rid of the eyesore wood cabinet. Oh, and you have to have a sound system to keep you amped up. Submitted by Brian

I am including photos of my workout room - My room is long and narrow but it works out well for me and my lifting partner. I have Pro-Style dumbbell set from 5-100lbs.  Also a Body Solid Hip Sled/Hack Squat machine; smith machine with a 200# selectorized lat pull down/low row, calf machine, incline benches, and misc. bars and plates. You will notice that my clock is pretty outdated and I desperately need a new one -  Hope you like the photos.  Oh yeah, by the way, my gym is in the lower level of the funeral home that I own."

"The pictures are of my home gym. My wife and I built our house over the last 3 years and a home gym has always been part of the plan. The floor is rubber, with a big ceiling fan and mirrors, it works great for me. (and several men who visit every week) The wife thought it would also be a good place to put my jet pictures in. (I’m a recently retired Air Force pilot) I’ve had several home gyms, one was in a formal living room, one was a bedroom, and this one and one other in a basement."
