I used to have a GYM membership but i never went.. being a father of 3 kids, married and run 3 seperate companies on my own leaves for zero time to go hit the gym.. but now that i have this home gym setup in my back yard i wake up between 430-5am to work out for about an hour, shower and then head to work.... i save about 20 min of drivetime and who knows how long not having to wait for equipment...

Exactly, the actual gym part isnt what sucks most its the going to and from and dealing with nasty annoying people

I tried to do a home gym thing years ago. Could never get heavy enough weights to do what i needed to do so never made any gains. Once i joined a gym and started hitting it 5x a week at 5am my strength went through the roof.
