    Great post Rusty! You can’t beat DIY training gear, I especially love Ross Enmait’s furniture sliders, boy do they get you blowing!! The weight vest is a pretty cool (but simple) idea too!
    Thanks Rob

    I love this!!! My training is geared towards those people who don’t want to join a gym, so these videos just add to the way I can train my clients. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Rusty!

    Wow man! This is one of the coolest posts I have come across recently. You have definitely done your homework here and I love that about this blog. You sure do make it easier for the rest of us to learn a few more things on how to build your own home gym!

    I workout from home and bought a few things that helps me tremendously without spending a fortune at a real gym. Especially bodylastics! Love that I can do any exercise with it!

    But this is a great post! To be honest, quite inspiring as well to know that you can literally build any type of gym equipment without spending a lot of money!

    Thank you for posting all the videos! I have gone through most of them but will make sure I watch them all.

    Thanks again.

    This is pretty hilarious but very useful at the same time. I LOVE the pvc pipe dip station! Living in an apartment with limited supplies, this might be exactly what I’ve been looking for. Thanks!

    Nice post Rusty, I love all the DIY home exercise equipment. There is so much you can do with little equipment. There really are no excuses not to participate in a quality exercise program.

    Good stuff…pretty much shows you can get a great workout at home using some pretty generic, readily accessible materials.

    There are some great ideas in this post! I just made several of my own sandbags for my gym and am continuously looking for other ways to save money and “do-it-yourself” for my gym equipment. (I might also have had cheesy rock in the background of my own how-to video…but it wasn’t Bodies!)

    I had to make some more stuff for my DIY equipment.

    Plyoboxes are easy to make and are an incredible workout.

    I also make a Bulgarian training bag

    Fun stuff. Keep sharing the ideas.

    Ha Ha! Some great inventions and ideas for homemade exersize equipment you got here on these videos. You don’t have to be rich to get in shape. Just use some imgination to get the work done.

    That’s a good one !;-)

    MacGyver’s a cool Dude!
    I just recently upped a post on how to train effectively without equipment, bodyweight only, and yet get a good workout out of it, over on my blog:

    Is it me, or does Macgyver look EXACTLY like David Beckham in that pic?!?! LOL I think there is a conspiracy…..and I may have cracked it!!

    Haha… I think you’re on to something Rusty…

    “What would the A-Team do?”
    “What would Mission Impossible do?”
    “What would Magnum P.I. do?”
    “What would NightRyder do?”
    “What would Hawaii 5-0 do?”

    Just a few more reasons the 80’s were the BEST decade…

    I have seen a few of these videos. Sometimes when Im training clients i have to be that guy who creates new shit out of thin air. As an NYC Personal Trainer I feel you should be able to get fit with no equipment necessary.

    Love the homemade stuff, especially the TRX style suspension trainer. I think now when I’m travelling, I will keep an eye out for improv training equipment!

    These videos are great. I recall watching episodes of MacGyver where he made a glider out of some tape, sticks and a rototiller! lol. Id imagine his gym equipment would be rather impressive.

    Just goes to show you really don’t need a ton of fancy equipment to get the job done.

    There is a constant hard work to have a body . Also it depends on a kind of food we eat . There is a specific food that a body builders eat. For further information we have to chech at Golds gym.

    The furniture sliders remind of a workout dvd I have from this site: http://wwwnowloss.com

    Instead of furniture sliders, the guy in the video uses two kitchen towels to perform planks on the floor. I don’t have sliders so I decided to try it. This version of planks bumped up the burn ten notches at least.

    It just goes to show you that you don’t need to spend all your hard-earned cash on fancy exercise equipment or a gym membership.

    Effective home gym equipment? A piece of paper, a crazy Canadian, and a metalworker to make the ultimate pull up device? A duffel bag, duct tape, and farm feed bag for an indestructible sand bag? This is how MacGyver would setup a home gym for sure! All of these fitness guys deserve a place in the WWMD Hall of Fame!

    I must say i liked the way you have developed your website, its simple, neat, easy to navigate and extremely easy on the eyes. Is it possible to let me know which theme or designer did you use…freestylecustoms.net

    I agree. A comment should say more than just great post. In fact, why would you say great post without explaining your reason behind your words?

    Great post, I just workout at home but I have been struggling to find new ways to workout. The homemade exercise equipment is genius and I will deferentially try to make some of them.

    In one video they make a suspension trainer for under $10 at a dollar store…out of dog leashes and zip ties. Then later on, someone emailed me about Ross’s furniture glider video.
