    Building a "swing set" for kids, but doubling as a gym for me, need advice

    Primal Fuel
    I'm going to be building a swing set, slide, treehouse, fort, etc for my kids but want it to double as my outdoor gym. I'm thinking about adding a pull bar, dip station and gymnastics rings. Am I missing anything.

    Also, does anyone have anything like this at home... would love to see some pictures.
    Thanks!

    Just thought of rope climb and a body row bar.
    man this is going to be tough...

    Have the tree house in two parts with monkey bars connecting them (and a safety net lol, wouldn't want any funerals).
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    Rope, pullup bar, and gymnasts rings will do. Dips and rows can be done on the rings. Monkey bars are a must

    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
