About Me

Hey guys, I’m Ryan Horton – Owner, Founder & CEO of Garage Gym DIY

I’m also the Director of Sports Science with Georgia Tech Football. I’ve been a Strength and Conditioning Coach at the collegiate level for almost 20 years now. I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to work at the University of Tennessee, FIU, Elon, Temple and now Georgia Tech.

I also love lifting in my garage. I’ve set up garage/home gyms in some shape, form or fashion almost everywhere we’ve lived over the years. 

Seemed like every time I tried to look up info, whether it be on info on equipment or how to build something yourself – I either couldn’t find info at all or it was just really bad.

So, I decided to do it myself. Within the pages of this website you’ll find all my knowledge on equipment after working in weight rooms for the last 20 years. You’ll also find all my knowledge on how to build things yourself for your garage gym.

Most importantly, you’ll always get my honest opinion on everything. While I may add affiliate links to products that I recommend, I’ll never recommend anything to you that I don’t stand behind 100%. If a Tupperware container that you can pick up at Wal-Mart for two bucks is what I think is the best thing for holding chalk, then that’s what I’m going to tell you. (It is, by the way)

I hope this website is a resource that helps you as you build your own garage gym.

In Strength,

Ryan
