nice i like it...what do you use the tire for?
If more gyms looked like this, you'd see A LOT more fit people walking around.
Looks pretty awesome. Mine looks a little ghetto compared to that, but comparable in terms of equipment
Nice gym. It looks like you got some tall ass ceilings.
PS - Huge pet peeve - put the C2 handle back in its cradle!!!!!
I like everything apart from the tv LOL!

Wow, I am truly jealous dude...although, my gym is about .3 miles from my house, which is convenient. Thats beside the point tho, props to you dude! Still cant believe you bought all that **** for 4k tho, thats just as amazing as your setup.
Very nice. Like I said in your journal, I am int he proccess of building up mine similar to yours. The only difference is I want a tredmill instead of the row machine. My wifey would love that. We go to the gym on base now. VERY NICE GYM BRO!!!!

Thanks for all the compliments, guys and gals. The reason it was so cheap is because I built most of the crap from Home Depot supplies. Most expensive pieces were the rower, rack, bench, bars and plates.
Do share how to build a reverse hyper?

Reverse hyper is easy, just needs to be a;
bench higher than waist high by about a foot (I'm thinking boards and saw tressles on the cheap, maybe stick it on bricks for height?)
something to hold onto, just some handles or a bar of some description out in front of you
Chain/strap to attach to the bottom of the contraption
strap to attach to your ankles.
Done! Aint no need to spend 2k at EFS on one of them bad boys
That is a thing of beauty, very nice work. All the possibe excercises in the given space.
