Overall, Joe is concerned with the whole situation and criticized the way it’s being handled by the Chinese government.

“Did you see that video of China where they’re spraying disinfectant in the street… its f**king bonkers, they’re driving in the street spraying everything… it’s crazy.” He began, before going more in-depth about the virus.

“We were talking with these infectious disease exports… and [they said] these viruses make themselves, happen all the time, and we can barely keep up with them. All it takes is one giant one [to do some harm].”

Finally, he went into his personal feelings about the Coronavirus and he did not seem to have high hopes. “I’m not feeling good about it, it scares me… these things can absolutely wipe out millions and millions of people before we can get a handle on it.”

So far the Coronavirus has mostly spread throughout China and the government claim they are keeping a handle on it.

Over 60,000 cases have reportedly been confirmed, with the vast majority of them being in China, a country with a population of over 1.3 billion.

Some airlines have even stopped direct flights to China as the country continues to battle the virus, although, there have not been any indications that it could be as bad Joe Rogan fears.

British fitness guru and social media influencer Matt ‘MattDoesFitness’ Morsia has completely transformed his home gym — but the cost of the renovations was nothing to sneeze at.

Morsia is one of the fitness community’s biggest internet stars; boasting over 1.9 million subscribers on YouTube and 898,000 followers on Instagram, his honest approach to fitness and crazy physical challenges have earned him as substantial audience.

Of course, it stands to reason that someone so dedicated to working out would have their own home gym (especially in a time where going to the gym could put one at risk) — but for Morsia, it’s more than just another room in his home.

For this influencer, the gym is his office, which he explained in the beginning of his video on the topic. He clarified that much of the equipment in his gym had been provided by his sponsors, and since it “directly contributes” to his salary, he chose only the most top-tier brands — something he claimed the average person does not need to do for their own home gym experience.

That being said, Matt went on to reveal the exact cost of the space, and it’s enough to make your jaw drop to the floor (or at least a fair wince).

As for the building itself, he spent a grand total of £34,000 (or $43,979), which isn’t actually part of his house. Instead, he commissioned the space to be completely “built from scratch” in the back garden — further compounding on its comparison to a true office space.

Combined with his equipment — the most expensive part of which was his £2,790 ($3,608) dual cable pulley — the entire gym ended up costing him £47,999 ($62,073). That’s nothing to sneeze at!

Morsia was quick to inform viewers that much of his equipment is no longer available for purchase due to the current global climate, and that other parts of the space — such as the bumper plates for his squat rack — were built by hand.

All in all, Morsia’s home gym is an impressive project that cost an equally impressive amount of cash, but when it’s your livelihood on the line, no price is too high for a quality workout.
