Body-Solid products are sold in 44 states across the United States and 57 countries, with dealers from New Caledonia and Nicaragua all the way to Bahamas and Belgium. With this tremendous reach, Body-Solid products often find their way into the houses of famous celebrities and athletes across the world. Even legends like Michael Jordan have Body-Solid pieces in their opulent home workout spaces.
A personal favorite celebrity home gym of our web team (the self-proclaimed nerds of Body-Solid) comes from Greg Capullo. The name may not come to your mind immediately but Capullo is one of the most famous comic book artists and pencillers in the world. You’ve heard of Batman, right? Well, Capullo has been Batman’s primary artist since 2011.
For those who collected comic books in the 90s, you’ll be familiar with Capullo’s work on Spawn from 1993 to 1999.
Outside of the comic work, Capullo has been involved in several projects such as pencilling for metal band Iced Earth albums The Dark Saga and Something Wicked This Way Comes, Korn’s Follow the Leader album and the Disturbed album, Ten Thousand Fists.
In 2013, Capullo also appeared on an episode of tattoo-themed reality show Ink Master as a special guest judge.
Capullo’s home gym has a very rugged look, which if you’re familiar with Greg’s art, fits perfectly. You’ll see a number of Body-Solid dumbbells, a Body-Solid Functional Trainer as well as a Body-Solid Power Rack among many other Body-Solid pieces.
Capullo’s gym, which also features a leg press and multiple cardio units is almost exclusively Body-Solid.
We should also note that Capullo was named one of the Best Tweeters (@GregCapullo) in Comics by IGN. Wonder why?
Once again, a huge thank you to Greg Capullo for choosing to stock his home workout space with Body-Solid and an additional thank you for allowing us to use photos of his space. For those in the Chicago area, Capullo will be appearing at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) in March 2016. It’s a great opportunity to meet one of the comic industry's biggest names and if you want, talk home gyms!
