I LOVE working out. Sore muscles for me make me feel GOOD. Weird, I know. Throughout the years, I have been able to push my body and to see the strength I have never had before. AND IT FEELS GOOD. I wasn’t always into fitness though; the love for it didn’t come until after I had Colin. That’s when we started our half-garage gym.
UPDATE: we since have moved and have done a NEW workout space in the new home. If you want come take a peek of it here! It’s quite the upgrade if you ask me!
I love this little space in my house… or garage?. I have spent many early mornings here, and late nights here. Our garage gym isn’t entirely how I would like for it to be, but it’s a start! Ideally, I would love to add some TRX cables or a power cage. But because I wanted to add mirrors to the wall, that was the trade-off.
I don’t think our little space is grand, it’s just enough for me, and gets the job done! JB has a gym membership and works out early mornings before work to miss traffic, so this space is mainly for me.
You can find all the links below for what we used, but before you scroll down to see details, I wanted to share what we did.
HOW WE CREATED A GARAGE GYM:
For our mirrors, we bought ten mirrors and glued them to the wall. Now, this can be tricky and dangerous if a mirror falls, so please make sure you are doing this correctly! We also nailed each mirror with those little mirror clips (or whatever you call them).
Our mats are treadmill mats. They are not thick at all- I wish we would have gotten something a bit thicker (TBH), but we are leaving it as is. The pull-up bar you see was a DIY project JB did for me. One of my fitness goals is to be able to do unassisted pull-ups, I am so far from this goal. BUT I AM GOING TO ACHIEVE IT!
Finally, my boxing bag. I am not a boxer, but I’m a Latina, and we are naturally hot-headed, LOL?. This bag is there for me to let out some steam. I love a little boxing bag session; it burns and feels so GOOD.

Comment below, do you have a garage gym? It is a full gym garage or half? Would love to hear from you! Thank you so much for stopping by!
