    My stuff was outside, then inside, now out again. Gets a bit more dust on it. Just a bit of wd40 on moving parts is working for me so far. Water on the platform is a pain in the arse though

    Has been outside for four years now, seems to be going fine.

    Apart from when the dogs ate the padding off my bench press, but that's an easy fix..

    Noice settup Mick. I see some lawn too for sled runs and yoke. Maybe start your own strongman comp. Set up the barby and you are good to go.

    Depends where you are i would imagine.

    I had an ABC black nitrite bar outside at my parents place near the beach.
    That weathered across about 18months.

    Yeh, I was going to mention that. Out where @Big Mick; and Admin are there's not a lot of humidity, plus Big Mick's stuff looks well and truly under cover.

    Not outside, but my garage, so it does get exposed to a lot more variation of temperature and moisture than it would in a regular airconditioned gym. I find the rubber mats get more flaky, the bumper plates have more edges brush off, and the bars are more prone to rust. Not much we can do about the first two but because heaps of people are using them, my bars are brushed down every week, and some wd-40 takes away any rust or other corrosion.

    It's Patina.

    Not many moving parts in a barbell or plate so it doesn't bother me in the slightest. Machines get attention with lube and inspection but I don't care too much.

    Good point, no salt air and very dry conditions most of the time, being near the beach or more humid areas may affect the equipment.

    Thanks, I won't be here much longer and there would not be much interest, most people hit the pub after work, no one wants to work out.

    I do have some plans for where I am going though, will be a full indoor out door gym set up.

    Here is the start of it, waiting to save a few more $$ to get the slab done, 12 metres by 6 metres indoor area, with large roller door, 3 meter by 12 meter undercover outdoor area, plus about three acres of lawn....can't wait, should be all done in the next 6 months finances permitting. Power and water for gym already run, 5000 gallon water tank already installed complete with power for pump.
