If you are trying to figure out where to start with building your garage gym, one of our garage gym packages is the best choice. Based on your training style and goals we have some starting points:
Strength/ Olympic Lifts: If you're making weightlifting a priority, there are various barbells and types of bumper plates. For general CrossFit and Olympic style lifting, a good all-purpose barbell will usually do the trick. As well as getting high quality bumpers that can take being used and abused.
Some of the key features you look for in a squat rack: rock solid, mobile, and a small foot print. If you have the ceiling height, getting a squat rack with a pull up bar will have more uses and benefits.
Gymnastics / Bodyweight Movement: We have three pieces of equipment that can deliver dozens of exercises and develop total body strength and awareness.
Gymnastic Rings are essential for developing pushing power (ring dips), pulling power (ring rows) and total body awareness and function (muscle-ups etc). If you do not have a pull-up yet, rings are ideal for building the pulling and core strength needed to progress to the pull-up bar.
The ab trainer has two main functions, however they are very important. Firstly it is used at a lumbar support during sit ups, forcing athletes to use abdominals instead of hip flexors to bring themselves through a full range of motion. Second, the ab trainer can and should be used as a pad to descend upon when doing handstand pushups - without it, your scalp and neck will suffer.

Conditioning: Strength and gymnastics equipment can both be used for general conditioning, in workouts like Fran for example this is obvious. However there are huge benefits that come from implementing these final three pieces of equipment.
The Kettlebell is potentially the best full body strength and conditioning tool out there. You can so single or both arm swings and snatches, turkish get-ups, tons of different stabilization drills, as well as countless types of odd object workouts (burden runs, farmers carries etc). Having 2 or 3 kettlebells that range between 16-32KGs is ideal for just about everybody however if you're only looking to get one male beginners will most likely get the most out of a 24KG bell while females should start with a 16KG.
Speed Ropes are small, portable, and great for developing conditioning and coordination. Starting with single unders and progressing to doubles and then triples should keep you busy for at least a few months if not years.
The Plyo Box has a number of uses and is particularly good for jumps, weighted step-ups, and elevated pushups. Multi Sided Plyo’s are by far the best option for a garage gym setup and usually come 30in x 24in x 20in in dimension, which allows for easy scaling and use by athletes of all size
