My home gym is now starting to blur the line between a tool and an archive. I was inspired by the Sorinex Museum of Physical Culture (which was inspired by the Stark Center at the University of Texas).
As a result, I started looking for Vintage York Dumbbells which are functional and a nod to the past.
In a similar vane, I will be seeking out milled Jackson plates, York plates and other Olympic deep dish plates from eras past. While I doubt I will come across a pair of Zuver's, I would be happy to throw money into the auction ring to own a piece of history.
Until then, I will continue to curate my gym with new and vintage, novel and mundane to continue to build out a space that is not only functional, but inspiring as well.
My short wish list includes Sorinex 40# Center Mass Bells and SYQQ collars.
I would like to own a Texas Power Bar.
I would also love to own custom equipment from the Purdue athletic training center or other customized equipment to which I have a personal association.
I would also like to get some Team Gupta stickers to customize the equipment I already own.
