    No reason to spend that much. Even if you buy into specialized machines you would get no where that close unless you're a retard like juji who may as well be clueless without the aide of tom. I tried telling him how to set the gym up properly to not require that much money but he was so obsessed on pretending to be a commercial gym for one.

      Why 500k? Unless I wanted multiple people to workout at the same time on it I wouldn't spend that much

      >$500k for a home gym
      listen lead is half the density of gold, but x0.00038 the price. Building a solid gold gym doesn’t make sense unless you have really stringent space concerns.

      I can make a good gym for $2.5k, a top tier gym for $15k, and dream gym for $30k-$40k. $500k is insane and unnecessary to such an insane level. For that money I could make a personal sports complex not a fucking gym

      He obviously built the gym as a business write-off of some sort. He's going to be able to write off depreciation and business expenses for years. He got the 500k gym for free to make content.

          Compare Eric at 275 to any roidchud at 275.
          Seems pretty weird that Eric has a totally different physique from the roid trannies.
          People who think Eric can't be natty are losers who spend their entire teens on their computers, and don't understand how big someone can get natty if they have been active during their teens with sufficient nutrition.
          I have buddies who are really jacked for being natty, because they've done sports and lifting since they were 13 and are now 30 lol.
          Of course someone who was sedate up with a shit diet will think getting jacked natty is impossible.

              He would lose a lot of muscle mass if he cut to a low bodyfat percentage.
              Your body doesn't want to carry a lot of muscle and be low fat at the same time.
              Look at Nick's strenght and power cut for his contest, that's what happens if you cut to get shredded as a natty.
              People on here keep posting pictures of Eric where he looks juicy, but that's just because they don't understand how much of a difference a pump + good lighting does.

              considering that he is 6'1 he would have to get to the 190s to 180s. Idk why he fell so hard for the bloat meme. It's ok if he just cares about numbers and wants to maximize his lifts as much as possible. But all the coping about how better it is to be a fat powerlifter and how unhealthy and bad he felt during cuts is stupid. He looked way better and was probably 10 times healthier when he did that once cut three years ago. Now his face has aged like 10 years in one and is probably border-line diabetic

    He's actually completely retarded for spending so much. The structure actually makes sense, fully finished pole-barns are extremely expensive, but even then that seems high.

    The 250k on "fancy" new equipment is the dumb part. I started collecting pieces on marketplace/CL at the beginning of Covid and in the 2ish years have pretty much a parallel or rarer/better version of what he has. For all of maybe 15k-20k.

    Now he has this heartless commercial looking gym with noone in it instead of creating the little mecca he probably thought he would.

    His apartment and garage gym were better for making interesting videos. Even the old videos in that commercial gym in Alabama with his buds were better. All the new videos just feel like every other bodybuilder trying to make a YT channel filming in whatever gym they go to, and it doesn't help that he doesn't have as competent an editor anymore (not even tomposting).
    If he gets a decent editor (or the current one gits gud) and he goes traveling and making videos like he used to do, or gets anybody other than the same four guests he's had for the last few years, I think his channel could come back.

    I don't get for what you'd spent that much, maybe if you wanted those high tech german pulley machines with electro-magnetic resistance.. Then this might even not be high enough budget.
    But it's kinda pointless going that rout, it's multiple times cheaper to just use elastic bands to get better resistance curve.

    I go to the most expensive gym in my area.
