Damien's "Awesome Gym of Awesomeness"

Today, as a change, I hand over to Damien. I have had the pleasure of training in this facility and can attest to its functionality. And yes, all the dumbbells are bloody heavy:

Below I've listed a few pictures and a brief break down of the stuff I've accumulated over the last three years. I originally started training at home which was three houses/garages and about 4 years ago. I had been training in a local globo gym and it was fine but not for me, I liked being able to set up a few bits of kit to do circuits, listen to loud music, leave chalk lying around the place and generally shout at the bar. So I started off with a power cage, a rubbish york bar and 170kg of cast plates and since then I've acquired more space and more things to put in the space.

It's probably also worth mentioning I manage a large workshop that has builds concrete mixers so I've made a lot of my own steel equipment and I make all my own (and other peoples) atlas stones. I will do another blog post on that some day.

So with a very comprehensive gym I'm finished now. Don't be silly, I need more space and some where to put a prowler and a yoke and a reverse hyper and some monkey bars and... well the list goes on
