Here are some pics of my gym (as requested)
Here's a view of the front of the gym. The gym is roughly 300 square feet (15x20). I'm sure there are nicer gyms in Cougar land, but this does the job and gives me a place to put in work every morning at 5:30 for 60-90 minutes.

Here's a view of the back of the gym. I have the still rings hanging from the ceiling as well as a TRX system. I like the rings and my wife prefers the TRX. Note the chalk on the floor on the right. I use liquid chalk, but it's clear where I tend to chalk up. The only reason we have so many mirrors is because we redid our bathrooms a few years ago and I decided to repurpose the mirrors in the gym.

Here are all my dumbbells. I use mostly adjustable since most of my work is heavier sets, and dumbbells take up a lot of space. I also have various bands hanging on this side of the gym.

Exercise ball, foam roller, yoga matt, agility ladder, more bands and jump ropes. This is where the Swedish ladder will be installed in a couple of weeks.

Here's the door into the gym with the hang board above it and the battle rope to the side (on the other side of the door is my home theater; this is all space above the garage — so no, I don't drop my weights).

This is the rack with all of the plates and a pully system for pull downs and pull throughs. The box on the right is used for step ups and box jumps. There's a a landmine device sitting on the box that I pull out from time to time; I should probably permanently mount it. I use the 2x12 for standing calf raises.

Finally here are my shelves with all the miscellaneous items (more bands, belts, workout videos, smaller weights, gloves from my wife, straps, shoes and a box of various braces, because at 51 I'm constantly nursing something back to health.

Like I said, it's not the nicest gym, but it does the job and keeps me in pretty good shape.
