Moving

We need to move house and do so as soon as possible. Our landlord informed us that his son and newly pregnant wife would like to move into the one we are in. Big deal? Not really, the worst case scenario is I will be on a "band" workout for a couple of days until I can get the Hillbilly Squat rack set up. What is interesting is whilst looking at other properties, I have noticed how my criteria of a good place differ wildly from my wife's.

She goes for "oohh double sinks, that's a tick" or "oooh walk in wardrobe!" that I will be allowed less than 5% of!

Mine are 1) does the dog have enough space outside 2) are the kids going to be ok 3) but really my number one is WHERE WILL THE GYM GO!? Normally this is on the roof - a place reserved for washing machines and sweaty Burnsies. My current roof is decked out with high strength, stainless steel anchor hooks at multiple heights and in various locations - perfect for resistance band exercises.

So, the search for a new roof begins!

Good luck with the search - finding a place with suitable space for a gym is definitely a challenge!

    Good luck with the house hunt. Never easy in HK...finding a big walk-in closet might be harder than a place to work out!

      Good luck with the house hunt! I hope you get all the criteria into one place!

        knowing you only get 5% of closet space = first step to a successful marriage!

            A proper place for the Hillbilly Squat rack is a MUST for the place search. Good luck...moving just plain sucks.

            Looking jacked in that week 9 photo Burnsie!! Keep it up!!!

              You have the best attitude in life. No one likes moving, and you have to do it quickly and suddenly, but you bring levity to the situation. Good luck with finding the perfect new roof.

                  It is all about location, location, location... for the hooks and Hillbilly Gym!

                    At least you are going to get 5% of the space, it could have been worse! ;-)

                    Good luck trying to find a place that allows you to have your gym set up like you want it to be, it sounds like your current place was great for that.
