Show us your Pain Cave

Sorry for the delay.

The fake TRX straps (were only $30) are bolted into the floor joists on the other side of the door. Didn’t want to mess up the ceiling or wall in the workout side with the attachment bracket.
When you come down the stairs the opposite side is where all the kids sleepover or where I hide when they come over.

    Anything with pillars, even if faux, can hardly be called a cave. My pain cave is barely one step up from a cellar. Color me jealous.

    I really don't do any working out down there. I tell my wife I'm going for a long run, turn on the treadmill, then sit on the medicine ball and watch TV.

    "Show us your pain cave" sounds like something that could be considered sexual harassment.. C'mon it's almost 2018... My usual setup got moved to my parents house where I'll be at for a while.. here it is in mom's sunroom

    here goes mine... it's behind my garage (we put up a dry wall and insulated the part where you'd store tools and other manly things I don't own/know how to use)...

    @maggieru it's white by Sherwin Williams

    Looks like @mbrekk44 got himself a new seat that he can handle! "The Spike" on my bike laughs at that seat... Wanna trade?

    Anyone want to crash in my guest room? I have a smart trainer in there you can use.

    This was a half accidental reno. Apparently my wife saying "sure" when I asked if it was okay to start on Dec. 22, with family coming to our place on Xmas, if I promise that I finish before the new year, she was being sarcastic. Probably 3 days to go... "Sure"

    extra bonus points if you know of whom the portrait is for that stage

    Here is mine. Painted cement walls/ceilings and enclosed the laundry room. Ideally I’d like to put a nice tv on that wall but first is a treadmill next to the bike. Just have to figure out which one to buy!

    @jrielley1406 your lack of Kenny Glah posters disturbs me. Here's a good one to start your collection.

    @AaronWebstey I’m still in the early stages! Have a few posters that I need to put up. But that is a good one!

    I can't decide what's scarier in that photo: the mustache, the visor, or the tan lines.

    It's all part of the wonder that is the 3rd greatest triathlete of the late 80s.

    The work pain cave. Finding it easier and easier to train on getting to work rather than at home - it's also nice and easy to swab off the floors here as they're some sort of rubberised thing.

    Keep the rollers (with bastard-pain-inducing-Kreitler-fan) here, and around the corner is a fully set gym. If ever I wish to get on a rowing machine again, there's no shortage here. There's also a lactate setup when I can convince the boss to do one on me.

    Paint is by Dulux on the walls, magnolia and a mix of colours used to replicate Pantone 557 (Cambridge Blue)
