Last winter we started cleaning out the unfinished portion of our basement, and turned it into a home gym. And with arrival of the last 45 lb dumbbell today, it's finally finished ... and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out! I tried to spruce it up a little by adding some paint here and there, and actually installing some trim on the wood panel wall, which Michael laughed at me for ... but I think she would agree that it's probably our favorite room in the house, and we use it daily. We use it so much that we've canceled our membership to our local gym, which will save us about $400 per year! I can't tell you how nice it is to have almost everything a professional gym has, right in our basement. It's so convenient!
So feel free to come over and work out. Just know in advance that there's a $25 daily drop-in fee ... I gotta start getting some of my money back somewhere, lol.
