Time Required: Two days
Difficulty: Easy

Brothers Andrew and Kevin have made a resolution to live healthier, more active lifestyles and decide that this weekend at the lake is as good a time as any to start. Their biggest hurdle is the lack of proper exercise equipment. Rather than discouraging the bros, this spurs the creation of the Ultimate Outdoor Gym – a collection of one-of-a-kind rustic fitness gear that’ll perfectly suit the backwoods surroundings.

Project Steps

Step 8

We chopped up some logs to create free weights, and stuck sections of steel bars through them to create a variety of different sizes of dumbbells. For the weight rack, we used hardwood pegs to hold the weights and keep everything organized. We also utilized our stationary bike to create a juice bar so we can make our healthy smoothies. To dress things up and make it look like an actual gym, we added a towel rack, a mirror and we cut a log in half to make a sign and give our gym a name… JIM.
