Home Gym - Multiple Athletes

My wife and I were training together yesterday and the space was absolutely useless for two athletes.  If my daughter was in there as well it would have been chaos.

I have certainly come a long way in terms of being organized, but there is still not a lot of floor space.  The Hoist Ab Bench and Rogue Squat Stand a large items.  The Squat Stand gets some use, but it still makes sense to primarily set up in the basement for rack movements.  My plan is to replace the Yoke in the basement with the Squat Stands.  The Yoke will go into "storage."  

The foot print for training athletes should be at minimum a 9x9 continuous space.  My space is currently about 10x24 - 240 square feet.  As much as I have leveraged wall storage, the continuous training floor space is narrow and irregular.  Getting rid of the squat stand will help a lot.  The other fix would be to move the DC Blocks somewhere else.  This would not fix everything, but it would be a big improvement.  Another issue is the strongman implements.  I need to move the stones, sandbags and crash pads.

The better solution is to open up another garage bay for a second athlete.  A little tedious, but not the end of the world.
