As a personal trainer and fitness lover, I always like taking a closer look at other people's garage gyms.

And once you get to the elite stage of bodybuilding, like Simeon Panda, that kind of garage gym setup can become pretty epic.

As one of the most influential fitness influencers, Simeon revealed his entire gym on social media platforms and in a few interviews.

So we decided to spend a day researching how he approached it and what amateurs could learn from it.

Quick Summary

  • Simeon Panda used durable equipment from brands like Gym80 when creating his home gym.
  • He used spacious areas and a combination of indoor and outdoor spaces for his home gym.
  • The estimated cost of Panda's home gym setup is likely in excess of $250,000, which is much higher than the average $1000 to $2000 that most people spend on their home gyms, according to the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA)
  • Having exercised in various home gyms, I appreciate the level of commitment and quality in Simeon Panda's setup, which I believe is essential for serious fitness enthusiasts.

What Does Simeon Panda's Home Gym Look Like?

Simeon's home gym looks a lot more like a Gold's Gym in a fancy home than what you would expect a garage gym to look like.

Half of it is in an outdoor space, and he also has equipment indoors.

He mainly sourced his equipment from Gym80, the company that supplies the Gold's Gym franchises with the Pure Kraft collection.

I had a chance to try their durable Pure Kraft collection, so I know firsthand why it's known for its quality and reliability in rigorous workouts.

His equipment includes a lying leg curl machine, a standing calf raise machine, a belt squat machine, a plate-loaded leg extension machine, a shoulder press machine, and an abduction machine.

According to a study in the National Library of Medicine, with more machines come more training flexibility and variety that will have a big impact on your muscle growth [1].

The other thing you'll notice about Simeon's entire gym is that everything is extremely solid and essentially commercial-grade equipment. And while that kind of all-black gym will cost a lot more, it's the kind of investment that will last for decades at home.

How Much Did He Spend?

It's not entirely clear how much Simeon spent on his home gym, and he hasn't revealed the exact amount in any videos.

The man is a multi-millionaire and influencer, so he probably got a good deal on a lot of the equipment.

Also, keep in mind that a lot of the machines are not available for the public to buy, and some of them are even custom machinery, which would hugely impact the price tag.

My best guess is that it's significantly in excess of $250k for just the equipment alone, not to mention the amazing home it's in.

"The best thing about bodybuilding is, you only get out what you put in."

Simeon's Advanced Gym Equipment

If you're one of Simeon's more than eight million followers, then you've seen him regularly feature different machines in his videos.

And that's why he has become one of the top influencers in the bodybuilding and fitness space [2].

Here are some of the machines from the Pure Kraft collection you can see in his entire gym tour video:

As you can see, he's a big fan of complex machines in his outdoor space, and a lot of them are for different leg exercises.

That's mainly because he mentioned in his gym tour video that he loves leg workouts more than any others.

The other thing you'll find him talking about is his wide range of free weights, from dumbbells to Olympic plates. He'll certainly need a lot of plates, as the majority of those machines he shows off are plate-loaded.

I would then suggest checking out the best home gym equipment we have researched, as it tends to give you the widest variety of workouts. Then gradually add more cardio and strength training machines as needed.

Outdoor Home Gym Design and Equipment

Panda's gym is a stellar example of how to effectively design a gym that is not only functional but also harmonizes with the outdoor environment.

Here's how you can draw inspiration from Simeon Panda's gym for your own outdoor fitness space.

1. Choosing the Right Location

Simeon Panda's gym showcases the importance of selecting a spacious area that accommodates various equipment types. Look for a flat surface area, considering factors like sunlight exposure, wind patterns, and privacy, similar to how Panda's gym is set up.

2. Weather-Resistant Equipment

In his gym, Panda uses robust, weather-proof equipment. Opt for gym equipment made from rust-resistant materials like stainless steel or coated metals, and look for weather-resistant padding and plastics.

3. Functional Layout

Organize your equipment efficiently. Panda’s gym is well-arranged, ensuring easy movement between different workout stations.

4. Incorporating Nature

Consider adding elements like plants or a water feature to create a serene and motivating environment. Use outdoor-friendly flooring materials for comfort and safety. Options include rubber mats or artificial turf, similar to what can be found in Panda's gym.
