I am planning on building a mini gym in my garage and was wondering if anyone could give opinions on the following or suggest better. I have bodylastics resistance bands which I will use with wall anchors. I was planning on getting this for squats bench and dips: https://www.amazon.co.uk/MiraFit-Adjustable-Squat-Position-Spotter/dp/B00UAVXV7I and then buy a 6ft bar and bench. I'd also get a cross trainer.

Do you think this is a good way to spend my money and is the rack in the link suitable? Any suggestions with regards to benches or any other equipment?

Thanks

Don't do it. You'll never use it. Just join a gym, I'm sure you'll pay less for a years membership than you would all the gear. Plus you'll be much more motivated at an actual gym

Heating for the winter otherwise you will use the cold weather as an excuse not to train in your garage. I got most of my equipment second hand, pull up station with dipping bar probably my most used item as works the back,abs and shoulders. kettle and barbells worth buying as well. good luck

Thanks, the rack in the link has dip bars and I have a pull-up bar for door frame so hope to use these. I'll keep an eye out on gumtree!

I appreciate what you're saying but 3 people are intending on using my garage gym which is essentially 3/4 months worth of membership. Plus for various reasons being at home will be more convenient.

home gym all the way will pay itself in no time, no waiting on equipment or **** music, but would invest in a full power rack a lot safer and can do more with it

Most important bit it removing the moisture from the garage as you work out. Three people are going to put out a lot of humidity and if you don't have good extraction then it's going to be a sweat box with possible mould issues if it's a finished garage.

roof mounted pull up bar is lot safer than door frame one especially if you start adding any weights. Men's Health have some good bodyweight workout routines on their website.
