DIY Network's House Crashers featured the garage overhaul of personal trainer and fitness guru Ben Forbes. His garage transformed from a bland space to a tricked out gym. The transformation, which featured products from Gladiator® GarageWorks, turned the unfinished space into a professional gym complete with a hanging climbing rope and heavy bag, weight bench, versatile storage cabinets, built in surround sound, a customized sink and more.
In selecting products for the 400 square foot garage, the producers needed a versatile system that could store gym equipment and yard equipment effectively. The flexibility and breadth of Gladiator brand's storage products, coupled with its stylish tread plate design, made the decision a "no-brainer" for the show's producer.
Specific products featured in the garage include Modular GearBox and GearDrawer, 24" Wall GearBox, Ball Caddy, 30" Solid Shelf, Clean-up Caddy and the Gladiator Claw™ advanced bike storage. Demonstrating the versatility of the wall components, the producers repurposed the Gladiator® Storage Bin Holders to store workout balls. Finally, to preserve the look and feel of Gladiator brand's signature tread plate design, the producers went as far as to convert a Ready-To-Assemble GearBox into a functional sink.
With the transformation complete, Ben is looking forward to using the gym for himself and for his future clients.
