How do you make a gym someplace you want to be even when you’re not working out? It’s an interesting interior design problem.
I don’t know much about interior design, but I do know when a space is cluttered the energy can become toxic. The show “Hoarders” documents some extreme examples of toxic clutter. New age mumbo jumbo aside, Feng Shui “works” because it’s so anti-clutter. Remove the clutter from a space and the energy instantly improves.
At CrossFit 612 we used a cage for pullups and boy did that thing effect the energy in the room. It was a big, black, hulking contraption that always reminded me of an AT-AT from Star Wars. Getting rid of the cage was my high priority project for the gym and I am glad to report that I finally did it!
Our new pullup bars are off the floor, and out of the way. They’re space-efficient and very shiny. Who cares if it took me two months to complete a project that a normal person could have done in two days? The cage is gone! Death to the cage!
