Workout & Our Growing Home Gym!

I had an AWESOME strength workout tonight with my Coach boyfriend and sister in law!

Also, We bought a SQUAT RACK!
It had been a growing concern of ours that we would not be able to squat since we had quit our crossfit gym memberships...

So this Saturday we found a GREAT deal on Craigslist and went a bartered for it!

I was SO happy to squat with this sucker today!

Warming up tonight with 65 lbs squats

Squatting is one of my FAVORITE lifts, and I'm excited to get better at it! My goal is to be able to squat 195 by next July! (Gives me 1 whole year!)

Right now I can squat about 135-140!

What are some of your fitness goals?



  1. I love reading about your at home gym, I think it's so awesome. My current goals are working up to running 5 miles and just generally getting stronger.

    1. Thanks!! WOW running 5 miles - That's ALLOT! You go girl!

  2. 195 by next July? Shooo, you'll be doing it by Christmas!! Right now, my 1RM is 145. I typically train around 120-125#. So, if you're working at 140 already, you're golden!

    1. Woo hoo I hope so!!! Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. Nice - y'all are going to have an incredible home gym before you are done!!!
    Good luck on the squat goal - I'm sure you will end up exceeding your goal!

  4. Yes, it's nice to have the equipment but even better to have the boyfriend and s-i-l to be fitness buddies. :D

    1. AMEN to that!!! SO much more fun & gives me a reason to be accountable!!!

  5. Hi, Dani! You must’ve been very happy because you now have your own squat rack. So, even if you've stopped with your gym membership, you can still continue with your daily training and exercise. However, don’t you have plans of setting up a gym at home? I think you’ll be needing it in the future, especially when you still have plans of buying more fitness gadgets and equipment.
