How I Built my Garage Gym for $1500

[removed]
I am in Toronto and bought the bigger items used. I bought everything else at Fitness Depot.

That looks like it is going to be bloody freezing in the winter.

LOL that is what I'm anticipating. Space heaters will be the first order of business. I'll probably need to insulate/spray foam too

Honest question: exactly how cold does a well-insulated garage get, when say it's -15 outside?

I just think when I'm doing long walks with my dog on some of those colder days, it gets hot after 10-15 minutes of a relatively rapid pace.

So is it tolerable with a sweater and hoodie to start, and then once you get going, it'll be fine where you may even remove the sweater?

The 'Conquer ' banner is the one I need :)
