About

Hi, I am Mick

I’m 37 years old and live in Sacramento, CA.

I created Home Gym Insider with the goal of making this site a great resource for all things about home gyms and home fitness. I want to bring all of the good information available out there about home workouts into one place e.g. where you can buy reliable weightlifting equipment, things you should avoid, diets and workout routines others have been successful with, and so much more.

One of the best things I ever did for my own personal fitness (besides quitting smoking) was to abandon the global-gym and invest in my own weight-training equipment. I don’t wait in line to use the power rack at the gym anymore; I don’t have to drive to and from the gym, and the best part is that my initial home gym equipment is already paid for itself in saved gym subscription fees.

I’m always trying to improve my own gym with additional or upgraded equipment, or by finding better use of the limited space. I like to see what other people have done with their own home gyms and get ideas from them.

I love my home gym.

I intend to continue to research how to make it and my workouts better, and my goal is to share the things I learn here with anyone interested. So please enjoy my articles and equipment reviews. I hope you pick up at least a little something you didn’t know already. And if at any time you feel like contributing by adding some comments, please feel free to do so. Or, if you would like to suggest an article you’d be interested in reading about, you may do that as well.
