Jordan is a 29-year-old warehouse manager who has always been passionate about strength training. He started lifting in high school for football and continued working out in commercial gyms up until two years ago when he joined a private gym and got into strongman training.

However, after moving to a new place with no strongman equipment or even squat racks available within an hour, Jordan and his wife decided to build their own home gym. They’re expecting a baby soon and the convenience of a home gym is key for their fitness routine.

Jordan’s Training and Goals

Jordan’s passion for strength training is evident in his impressive lifting numbers, with a 400+ bench and 600+ deadlift. He competes in strongman competitions and hopes to expand his training and eventually become a gym owner with his wife. Jordan is excited about the prospect of opening a small commercial facility near their house, as there isn’t currently a place where people can focus on getting stronger within an hour of their home.

Building the Gym: Challenges and Essentials

One of the biggest challenges they faced was cleaning out over 30 years of accumulated stuff from the building they planned to use as their gym. Additionally, they had to vault the ceiling to create enough space for overhead presses, as both Jordan and his wife are tall.

Jordan’s wife helped him a little with the gym, but she was 24 weeks pregnant at the time, so her help was limited. Jordan’s grandfather also assisted him in hanging the plywood.

Jordan’s Advice

Jordan’s advice to anyone starting their home gym is to start with the essentials – a good bar, a rack, and plates – and then assess the needs from there. He emphasizes that it’s possible to do a lot with just those three things, and you can always add more equipment later. For Jordan, as a strongman competitor, his list of essentials was a bit longer.

He also recommends checking Facebook Marketplace for deals, especially if you live in a larger city. Although they splurged a bit on their equipment, Jordan says that it’s not necessary to spend a lot to have a great space; it just takes a bit of luck with finding good deals.

As far as the cost of Jordan’s gym, he says they went a bit overboard with this build ($15K) because they wanted to buy new equipment. As strength has been a big part of his life for years he wanted equipment that would last forever. He acknowledges that an effective gym could really be built for half the price.

Home Gym Equipment

Total Home Gym Cost = $12,000 Equipment + $1,900 Space setup (flooring…) + $1,700 building renovation = TOTAL $15,600
