Bit by bit over the last few years (since 2014) I’ve been adding bits and pieces to our Garagym … we use it a lot… so it has a fan heater, speakers, a TV and DVD player with some DVD workouts… weights, bands, a pull up bar, foldable bench… we’ve got what we need – and we use it a lot. It’s ace.
We’ve got a good spin bike in there too… a foam roller, mats, and a box and step. Dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells. I love it.
But recently there’s been one thing that’s been slightly annoying me… no internet connection in the garagym. First world problems! Lockdown has clearly left me with some time on my hands to sort this out.
So I went about figuring out how to get the Internet into it… here’s how… it’s quite easy, and not too expensive.
You get a power link extender, which connects internet through the electricity circuit.
We recently got a new hub from sky which has two ports (instead of 4 like the old one used to have)… so the first thing I needed to get was a powered splitter, and an Ethernet cable to connect it to the router in the house.
So that was about £10 for that and the cable. And it means all of our cables devices are in and connected too.
I’ll also be able to put my ipad or phone onto the spin bike (for a cheaper than peloton priced peloton bike type set up).
WiFi in the garagym now for steaming content, music and whatever. I’m well pleased.
