For now, our store Adamant Barbell won’t change its name. We need a new name for our blog only. It has grown way beyond just supplying info for our store shoppers. It stands on its own now with a lot of great content.

We write about gym equipment mainly for normal folks setting up a gym in their home or garage. Benjamin’s gym we featured in March is a perfect example of what our readers can do. His gym is a combination of equipment for Crossfit and strength training, which is pretty common nowadays. Other people are more into bodybuilding or cardio and will have equipment to reflect that.

Our articles are also read by personal trainers getting equipment for their own studios, and Crossfit affiliates equipping their new boxes.

Contributors include David (the owner), who has been in the fitness industry for 10 years, and athletes who have spent years in the competition scene or working out privately in their own garages.

Topics of our articles include different types of barbells, dumbbells, power racks, benches, and the occasional article about conditioning equipment, suspension training, or any accessories like knee wraps or grippers. We compare different models to suggest the best one for your situation and feature some hands-on reviews where a writer personally evaluates a product in-depth and shares his insights.
