Check out our gym pictures and pictures of gym equipment. Most of the gym equipment was made in Siberia or was surplus. Okay the treadmill and Nordic track were bought new. But other gym equipment, squat rack, Olympic weight set, punching bag and other items were made here in Siberia. Even used Siberia sand in a plastic bag wrapped in plastic coated canvas to make the punching bag.
