Since this garage gym is all about DIY and keeping the costs down, I headed over to my local hardware store to purchase some black pipe and end caps -- total cost about $23.00. I didn't have the proper drill bit size for the pipe, so I added a spade bit for about $10. Luckily, I had screws and miscellaneous lumber hanging around, so I was able to reinforce the rafters without any more outlay.
One last thing I added was the Rage Pull Up Assist -- it comes with a bar strap, quick link and three resistance bands, making it very easy to change the level of assistance.
I also put up a pull-up bar in the basement for my kids to use (I had an old door mount version from before) -- I imagine my kids will be doing kipping pull-ups in no time at all! They love the idea of CrossFit Kids.
