One of the hardest things for my husband to leave in China was his Crossfit community at our international school. He had helped his friends establish a box and their little “family” grew into a school wide love for Crossfit. Even the kids loved joining in, and ever since my son could walk he has mimicked his dad doing overhead squats and burpies. The team encouraged each other daily to live healthy lives and push themselves to set and exceeded personal records.


So when we left for America he knew there would be an adjustment. Our biggest problem was knowing we wouldn’t be able to afford a membership for him to join a Crossfit box. Our other option was joining the local rec, but we didn’t like the idea of our kids not watching us workout. Not to mention, the time and effort it takes to travel to and from a gym after a full days work.

In the end we decided we would build a garage gym and my husband could workout at home, using a suspension trainer which is fun. The coolest part was watching him teach and encourage his family to try out Crossfit. Within weeks he had built a new Crossfit community with his brothers, parents, and sister in law. We bought a variety of other equipment too, for example, the best elliptical machines, so that it replicated a real gym as closely as possible and so that we could all enjoy it together with activities that best suited all our abilities.

The only problem was affording and outfitting a box to accommodate a number of people. One of our biggest needs was finding a way to do pull ups and dips. We looked like a super family jogging down to the local playground and doing pull ups on the monkey bars. That system quickly got exhausting and would soon become impossible when the weather changed.

That’s when we found our perfect fit for our fitness routine with Stamina!

With a strong desire to build a Crossfit home gym we were looking for equipment that was versatile and exercised the whole body. Stamina Power Tower with VKR was a convenient and simple solution for the garage gym.

A basic, but sturdy stand, fit perfect in our garage and was only 76 lbs; light enough to move around our yard. During summer days my husband can easily move the tower to the driveway by himself. During the winter, it is small enough to be used in our garage. We did have an issue with the springs in our garage which was a little annoying but if you click here, you can find a great company who does repairs. The only downside to it being so light weight is heavier people can experience some wiggling, especially during pull ups. My pipsqueak sister in law never had a problem, however my 200olbs+ husband got some shaking when trying to race the clock on pull ups. We all agreed the integrity wasn’t lost nor anyone felt unsafe, and a simple solution was made with sandbags on the base.

The Stamina Power Tower provides multiple workout stations to sculpt and strengthen the entire body. It allows us to have minimal equipment in our garage and fits in our outfitting budget.

  • Tricep Dip Station:

  • Pull-Up Bar with multiple grip positions

  • Push-Up Station

  • Sit-Up Station

  • Vertical Knee Raise Station

Key Features

The tower is made with a solid steel frame that is durable and can withstand up to 250lbs. Comfotable pads that are easy to clean are added for the VKR station so you can focus on technique and endurance rather than unnecessary pain.

All workout points include secure foam hand grips for comfort. They are firm enough that grabbing isn’t compromised but giving enough to prevent blisters.

If you’ve ever done Crossfit, you know blisters become some weird induction into the family. #braggingrights

The manual provides a guide on how to best use the power tower. Included is conditioning guidelines, warm-ups and cool-downs, and workout instructions with pictures.

The Stamina Power Tower also worked well with two people at a time. It helped us conveniently plan stations in order to share our equipment when multiple people were in the WOD (work out of the day.)

At MamatheFox we love to encourage healthy living. We appreciate Stamina’s mission to provide innovative and affordable equipment so everyone can live a healthier life. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our first Stamina purchase. The convince of this versatile power tower made our garage gym less cluttered without sacrificing a full body workout. The light weight made it easy to transport and use year round. No matter what your workout routine is, we encourage you to check out Stamina products and see what they have to offer!

Do you have a gym in your home? If so, there is a good chance you might have considered investing in an infrared sauna. Saunas have been used for thousands of years and can help people to unwind and relax after a workout. Studies seem to show that using a sauna might have other health benefits too. However, when buying a sauna, your health and safety need to come first. Matt has the best sauna reviews for low emf brands so take a look if you are on the lookout for a sauna for your home gym.

Keep an eye out over the next two weeks for a chance to win another Stamina favorite product!
