Swole brothers Brandon and Hudson White, better known on YouTube as the Buff Dudes, have posted plenty of workout videos from their well-equipped home gym. In this time-lapse video, first shared last year, they reveal how they completely renovated an unused garage space and transformed it into an at-home iron paradise.
They begin by tearing out all of the old fixtures and cupboards, then set about plastering, priming and painting the walls. Next they lay down a series of heavy duty rubber gym mats to cover the full floor surface area, then mount a number of metal racks on the walls for their equipment.

Once the basics are done, they assemble the standing gym apparatus, including the all-important power rack (which they say no gym is complete without), and haul in the bike and treadmill.
“It’s pretty simple as you can see,” says Brandon. “We didn’t want to over-pack this gym, we’ve got the bare essentials.” The leg press machine is notably situated in pride of place, right in the middle of the gym to remind them to never skip leg day.
For a few final touches, they hang up motivational artwork (including their own branding), and of course some bigass mirrors to help them better track their gains.
However, they soon discover that they’d made some mistakes, including hanging neon lighting behind their logo, when in fact natural light is optimal. “Lighting is key in a gym,” says Brandon, “so we had to get rid of the fluorescents. It’s bad on video because of the shutter speed, and also it just isn’t the proper lighting… We just need to make ourselves look as good as possible!”
