One Village Gym

Posted on October 5, 2015 by tim


As the author of these photos put it – “boys in a village also enjoy doing sports, but not always they have a gym nearby or can afford it at all, so often they make gyms themselves from the things they have around. One of such gyms we visit now”. Pieces of electric poles, tires, scrap metal and 100 roubles ($1.5) from each person – this is what have been used to set up this gym. See inside:

One of them had a small truck. So they went and found a few of old electric poles being replaced with concrete ones recently. Then they went to a scrap metal site and explained the owner they want to build a gym, owner gave them a lot of metal and didn’t charge a penny.

Then used their money a dollar and a half from each, to buy some ropes and screws and started working.

At first they built a boxing ring.

Then started making furniture for the gym. They got lucky as one of the guys knew a skill how to make basic furniture so he helped.

Another guy was a welder, he helped to weld metals into racks.

They dug the holes and installed the racks into those holes.

Then made punching bags out of tires and installed those too.

Here they lift.

And here how they train: at first they run for 3 km. Then train in boxing.

Make some sparring.

Then hit bags, exercise on bars and do pull ups.

Then lifting. 

And then head back to the village.

Hope you liked what they did! And if one day you be in Dubrovka village, Russia this guy might give you some hard training as he was taught in the army.
