    Ok at least few notes as my own experience, maybe it helps
    1. Epdm floor was great choice
    2. At least small rack (mine is strong compromise to save space, had no option to use wall mount foldable rack, and wanted all in one, it's cheap but well crafted chinese “rack", only 1,2m deep but 1,2m wide, quite stable)

    my "archaic" basement gym. Bench with lat, preacher curl, leg extension curl attachments , free weights/dumbbells, spin bike...not pictured, incline sit up bench and door frame pull up bar. The bike is around 20 years old and everything else around 30 years. I've repaired and welded the bench a few times. Suits all my needs....the only upgrade I need is a thick floor mat.

    I can understand how proud you are, your gym has a soul (none of commercial one has one) bcs. of all you mentioned. 👍

    Mine is a mess right now bc of the holiday bins! There's actually a decent squat rack in the right corner 😂 I adore my home gym. Is it my happy place!

    Is there a trick to posting a pic? It's not working for me. 🙁

    Currently mine is a basket in the corner of the living room with a couple yoga mats, some blocks, hand weights, and soon to add resistance bands. Pair that with the TV remote and I am in business :D

    (The twist board thing is my 6 year olds ;) )

    I also have a compact rowing machine and bike trainer, both tucked away when not using.

    Too funny!

    I would someday like a weight bench and some other equipment, or maybe even a bow flex or something, but no space for it in this stage of life. Our oldest is 12 and starting to be more aware of his physical self so I can see him wanting to start doing some more with weights. He’s still tiny though - 5’ and 80ish lbs. I am anticipating a massive growth spurt this year.

    I won't be sharing a pic because mine's all over my house, but I have a cage and treadmill in my living room, and a heavybag in my dining room. It's funny how many delivery people assume my husband is so lucky that I let him set this all up. On the plus side for me, I never have to nag him to take out the garbage, since that would just be fighting with myself.

    I'm lucky to have a single garage space for my gym. I mostly use my barbell, bench and free weights and occasionally the treadmill and ball etc. I'm in here at least 3-4 times a week and it's perfectly suitable for my needs. Working fulltime + a 3 hour daily commute + 4 kids means going to a gym is impossible.

    Same here.. I admire you are so consistant by 4 kids 👍 I have one kid and it's sometimes hard beside the work. Only chance to do workout at home, sometimes at night 😁
