Welcome to the Garage Gym Reviews Resources section, a curated list of the equipment and tools I recommend and use in my own training.
I have tested every recommendation on this page. I've also done full, in-depth reviews on most of them and because of this, I don't plan to do too much writing on why I suggest them.
Before digging into the awesome resources I know and trust, an important disclosure:
Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you. Please understand that I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.

These are the basics and is certainly not a definitive list. For most items, I'm a firm believer in the idea of buy once, cry once. This means, buy the best you can afford and you'll likely never have to buy it again. Especially when you buy from companies like the ones I've listed with lifetime warranties.
If you're wondering if I'd specifically recommend a certain item, shoot me an email on my contact page.
