I’ve decided to set up my own training studio. I’ve told my girlfriend it’s to make some spare change whilst at uni, but really it’s so I can have the best equipment for myself to use. I’m tired of using crap stuff at the uni gym.
Because I’m a poor uni student, budget is pretty stringent, however with the use it will get, there’s no point in buying crap gear. So I’m buying the best I can and will add to it as finances permit.
My bare minimum to get started is:
(7)175kg of olympic weights.
(8)Fitness balls. 55 & 65cm.
I can do everything I need with that stuff. I can’t wait to do some curls with badass olympic dumbells! But it’s a bitch to do calves on the stairs.
So if I can stretch the budget enough I’ll also get (9)standing calf machine, (10)leg press and (11)seated calf.
However the calgym leg press alone is about 4grand so I don’t think it’s gonna happen.
The hammer gear is awesome quality but it’s damn expensive so I might have to go the calgym, which is good but it’s not hammer gear. I’m trying to keep the total price under 5 grand (australian).
So what do people think? Is there anything missing that you wouldn’t be able to get a good workout without?
And if you were the type to get personal training, how impressed would you be if you saw this stuff under your trainers house? Nothing but the best for my guys (and me, heh heh)
