Lumber Jacked

"Adhering to Ohio's stay-at-home order due to the coronavirus outbreak, Zachary Skidmore bench presses as he lifts weights using his hand-made outdoor gym equipment on April 15, 2020 in Jackson, Ohio."

The coronavirus has shut down nearly every business - that includes gyms.

But that didn't stop Zachary Skidmore from constructing his own 'Lumber-Jacked Gym' entirely out of timber to help maintain his fitness during Ohio's stay-at-home order due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Skidmore, a former U.S. Army police officer and part-time personal trainer, constructed his gym entirely out of timber over a two week period.

The seven station setup, which includes a cable fly machine, bench press, treadmill and leg press, was designed as a way to help him stay fit during the COVID-19 pandemic - which shut down his local gym - and landed him at his parent’s home for the quarantine.

An incredible sight to be seen - it's a view of how American's and those around the world are finding creative ways to stay fit and stay in shape during shelter in place.
