    Not sure I'd be keen on setting up unless I had a permanent structure to put it all in.

    yeah i was looking at the rocks travelling gym, proper flooring, waterproof etc, (hence commercial marquee which is bolted into to the concrete), could upgrade the shelter at a later time but not exactly my main priority at the moment

    but i hear you

    Definitely worth seeing what kit you can get once everyone starts selling stuff. Wouldn't need to spend as much then

    Would a good sized shed not be an option and reinforce the floor?

    Height is the issue with sheds so restricts options based on what id looked at, but id reinforce the floor as that's easy enough to lay some concrete at the back of the garden then set up something like this https://www.houseoftents.co.uk/Party-Tents-Marquees/92100.html which secures into the concrete base. Then cheap place to keep stuff dry and squat out of the rain.

    Would do the floor up a bit, laying panel and padding.

    Any how just a consideration at the moment.

    Got me squat stands now, rubber matting is in. I need a running machine or a cross trainer and im good to go for a few months at least, will look to add more dumbells, maybe a pullup bar overtime but they are not essential for my fatloss phase

    Seen a few bits like bikes, spin bikes and running machines on market place lately. At what seem like reasonable prices as well. Guess they don't command the same money as weights as easy to replicate without them

    Just seen a company advertising these.

    £699 for 250kg. I'm dubious as they have only just appeared and have no interaction on their Facebook page. However, they are only 20 minutes up the road from me so I'm going to ask to go see them. If genuine I'll see if the stick around

    Seen loads using them. There's a way if you buy two of doubling them over and making a high and low row.
