06 Mar Top Gear Picks For Your Home Gym
Last year, Industrial Athletic completed a home gym set up on The Block NZ, in Andy and Nate’s house for ‘garage week’. Not only did it look rad, but the lads won the room reveal that week!
Helping kiwis out with their humble (or occasionally not-so-humble) garage gym installations is something we love to do, being a small family owned NZ business. We’ve kitted out a number of homes with our gear and if you’re thinking about joining the ranks of people who get to train on their own watch and as much as they like, we’ve thrown together a checklist to help as a starting point.
Once you figure out what you want or need, you can add it to a wishlist on our website and buy gear as it suits you, or as they come into stock.
What did Andy have to say about the fit out?
“I’d used Industrial Athletic before for a couple of things and always found them reliable and trustworthy and able to come up with great ideas for home fitness set ups. We were able to have a consultation with Industrial Athletic to fully go over our needs and were lucky enough to have Cole pop in to set it up for us, though it’d be easy enough to set up yourself as a DIY project.
We obviously wanted to cater to the general population with a fully functional set up that fitted easily into the space without encroaching on the rest of the garage. I dabble in a bit of CrossFit with having to be fit being a fireman and functional fitness is paramount for staying fit and healthy.
The Industrial Athletic products speak for themselves in terms of quality – obviously we won, and believe the gym played a large role in that! My favourite piece of equipment has to be the rubber flooring being that it’s so robust. It allows you to to anything really including dropping weights, yoga, even driving over it. Aside from that having a fully retractable rig is an awesome feature! It really was everything and more that we could have hoped for.”
