Rusty, but good garage set up or gym?

My work gym is pretty epic as far as home gyms go and it's free to use. Got pretty much everything you need, except the squat rack doesn't have a mirror in front of it and it's pretty flimsy.

I can wear what I want, usually the only person in there, listen to what I like, spit, swear and lose my **** whenever I like.

This seems to outweigh a gym for me. What do you prefer?

    If I could afford to build one in my backyard I would. I'd need a gym buddy though for spotting and vocal encouragement

    Home gym is my preference, purely because its a 100% controlled environment, theres always something not to taste at a gym, with your own you can set it up for consistently, however you will miss the atmosphere which can help with training, and ideally you need a power rack to bench safely

    Home gym every time for me. Love being able to walk from the kitchen to the garage whenever I like and be in my gym. I do sometimes miss the social aspect of a small independent type gym, but there aint any of those in this part of the world anyway. 

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.
