My Dad's Garage, Cheshire, UK

Submitted By: Methuselah
Location: Cheshire, UK (map)
Workouts: from workout diary

My Dad's gym has probably the lowest ratio of venue to equipment quality ever seen. His single garage houses gardening tools, a table tennis table, a lawnmower and various household items like a fridge and vegetable storage rack. Somehow he has shoe-horned into the remaining space a top quality power rack and top quality pull down machine. Accompanying this are several Olympic bars, a pair of adjustable dumbbells, a good range of plates and two weights benches.

He deserves an award for ingenious use of garage space alone, but more to his credit is that with this this equipment he continues with exercise routines that would tax most people half his age.

No prizes for guessing the source of my own fixation in this area.
