Rene's Garage Gym
She is the only one working out in here gym. "My garage gym at the moment I have to move outside everyday. It consist of your 1 person gym package plus another barbell and squat rack." She only includes equipment in her gym that has a purpose, nothing's in there that she doesn't need.
"My favorite piece of equipment is my 15kg women's wonder bar. The way it moves when I'm working on my lifts is so smooth and clean. It makes lifting amazing!"
