THE WOODSY GYM — It can be tough sitting at home all day.

Never thought I'd be saying that, considering this was what my dream scenario was not too long ago.

If someone told me, "Hey, you can't go to work and you have to stay at home all day. You'll still have access to all your streaming services and all your favorite restaurants are still open for take out," I would have draped that person with hugs and built a monument in their honor.

Turns out there were some fine print things in this contract I missed. They forgot to mention my kids would also be quarantined with me all the time. They forgot to mention that being sedentary actually takes a toll and watching movies and TV shows all day long gets old. Who knew?

Well, if you're itching to get outside and workout, then this video is going to change your life. This guy decided to take a chainsaw to some trees and make an entire gym out of wood.

I'm not kidding, a whole gym!

This guy has squat racks, a bench press, fly machine and even a treadmill. They are all made out of wood. Yes, the treadmill is made out of wood.

I feel like while your muscles get swole at this gym, your hands also end up sticky with sap and filled with splinters, but beggars can't be choosers right now. Check out the video and you'll see that putting the gym together was a fair amount of work and took some ingenuity. But if you've got the time, the tools, the hardware and the determination, I suppose you could have your own natural gym in your backyard.
