Why Samantha Built Her Garage Gym

"I built a garage gym because I was tired of waiting for friends to workout with, tired of scheduling my fitness and workouts around everyone else.. my husbands schedule is the furthest thing from consistent, and I hated waiting for him to get home to be able to go workout. We live far from family because he’s military, so having babysitters or help is rare."

"Any tips would be price match and wait and watch for sales! Or start with a dumbbell and speed rope and build as you grow and go. You’ll find out what you want, need, and use most!!"
