Garage Gym Life is about achieving your exercise, strength and physique goals right where you live. It doesn’t matter if you train on the latest pieces from Rogue Fitness or on hardware that you built yourself out of spare parts from someone’s junk pile. If you do P90X, CrossFit, Strongman, Bodybuilding, Powerlifting, Bar Athletics, Calisthenics, Highland Games, Grip Competition or any other part of the Iron Game you’re welcome at Garage Gym Life.
We’ll talk nutrition, motivation, programs we’ve tried and of course equipment. That includes where to buy stuff you need and/or how to make it (even if you’re not necessarily handy). At the end of each week, we select some articles we think deserve a second look and send them out in a free weekly newsletter. You can subscribe to that using the form on the right. That’s also where you’ll find out about discounts in our online store. Speaking of which . . .
I wasn’t sure originally about selling merchandise. My dream is to be a full time writer not a shopkeeper. But I kept getting these cool designs for shirts in my head and once I realized that selling products would help offset the cost of running this blog I decided to go for it. Every piece has been designed by me in collaboration with my lovely wife, Naomi, my son Marshal and either the very talented Gina Sabin of Dandy Lion Designs or the equally talented Lyle Gordon. You can shop by clicking the photo on the right of this page or selecting the apparel tab above.
We’re growing the Garage Gym Life brand through Instagram and Facebook and we recently launched a YouTube channel; all focused on promoting the home gym lifestyle. Right now there’s no message board or plans for one. Instead, I encourage you to follow us on Instagram @garage.gym.life and check out our private Facebook group The Garage Gym Life VIP Hangout. John also posts his training regularly on the Animalpak Forvm (yes that’s how it’s spelled) which is free to join.
Our Pledge To You
Both your time and your money are precious and we’re grateful to each of you who chooses to spend any portion of it with us. My wife and I are proud of what we have here and we hope you’ll enjoy reading the Garage Gym Life blog and wearing Garage Gym Life products. You’ve got our pledge that we’ll never sell anything for the sake of selling it or put up anything for sale that we wouldn’t wear ourselves. We also don’t endorse anything that we don’t use or haven’t used successfully in the past. Ever.
Thank you for your continued support,
John Greaves III and Naomi Harris Greaves
