Guffaw! And here you were so worried because you saw a *Texas Hillbilly* in your neighborhood...maybe it's the hillbilly who should be more concerned about the new kid on the block from California. Not classy...not classy at all.

If you have a house, why not put your gym in a corner in the house? It'll be air conditioned and you can have your music without disturbing the neighbors
All my rooms are being used for something at this point or I would move it indoors.

Your HOA covenants probably have a section banning you from disrupting your neighbors "peaceful enjoyment" of their property. You should be able to turn your music on loud enough for you to hear it, but low enough that your neighbors don't.

My neighbor put in outdoor speakers even though the deed restrictions have that clause about not disturbing anyone else's peace. The sound was not bad, but his top 40 selections were awful.

I took him some Terry Allen and Fred Eaglesmith and Todd Snider. It is OK now.

Very true, statement also applies whether you're in your car, or you're in you're garage.

It's very hillbilly to do that IMO.

Don't do it. Work out with an ipod and earphones like a normal person.

I wouldn't want to listen to rap or country blasted. Both are like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

i don't live in a MPC atmopshere. I mostly ignore pumped up music when the local teens are having a pool party and horsing around. Adults cranking it up would be annoying, and they don't around here....But if they did I wouldn't say anything, but I would quietly seethe ( it's a white thing. )

Well they wouldn't be able to hear it if they are in their house, but if they are in their front yar they MIGHT hear it if they are next door or across the street. I don't really see how it's any different from someone playing a musical instrument like drums in the garage. I could workout with my earphones but I'm a grown ass man an I paid for my house, so I'm going to enjoy it. And it does need to be somewhat loud because when I lift I need to go into beast mode, obviously you people have never put up 315 lbs on the bench.
