My job requires that I travel every day, and hotel gyms, as we all know, suck something terrible. So I got a Door Gym; the only problem was that it didn't fit in my suitcase. I came up with this idea, my Dad took it to his shop and executed it perfectly. Here's the rundown:
Took horizontal bar and cut it in half. Found a 15" piece of steel pipe that fit the inner diameter of the bar.
Drilled two new holes, very near the bolt holes that attach the horizontal bar to the cantilever, use cotterpins to hold in in place.
Marked the sides so they do not get confused, scored all pieces so I could line them up and find the holes.
Here's what the bar looks like assembled:
And here's my new Travel-Modded Door Gym!
Hope this helps you Gypsy SimpleFitters out there!
