Logan Paul might be a professional boxer and podcast host, but he’s primarily known for his career as a top YouTuber — a title that he feels will land him a spot in the internet’s hall of fame for years to come.

Before his famous boxing feud with rival YouTuber KSI and the subsequent start of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast, Logan Paul was known for his outrageous, high-energy vlogs and Vines, which usually contained insane pranks questionably legal hijinks.

These antics grew his fanbase to huge levels — but his success hit a bump in the road after his scandal in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest’ in early 2018, landing him far outside of the internet’s good graces.

After his rise to Vine fame and viral boxing feud with fellow YouTuber KSI, Logan Paul is confident that he’ll end up as one of the platform’s greatest creators of all time.

Fast forward to 2020 and Paul has since recovered from the drama, boasting 21 million subscribers and a legacy of nonstop action, which he feels has already earned him the title as one of the best YouTubers ever.

The Viner-turned-YouTuber opened up on the topic during an April 23 episode of his imPaulsive podcast, explaining that his experience in navigating to YouTube success from Vine and his storytelling skills stand as proof of his GOAT status.

“I do believe I am and will be regarded as one of the best YouTubers to grace the platform,” he admitted. “…I do think that, just because of the way I’ve been able to navigate this platform and the other platforms I came up on, and my storytelling I think is the spine of the operation that keeps me and the Maverick crew strong.”

Logan Paul has pulled off a number of crazy stunts in his time as a top YouTuber, including two huge boxing matches and his star-studded Challenger Games charity track & field event.

Despite his self-confidence, Paul also claimed he was worried about saying the sentiment aloud, knowing that he’ll be pressured to keep up his legacy to match his high aspirations from critics.

“I love humility,” he continued. “I love when people are humble. ….now I have to prove that, and now I have to continue to back that up. It puts a pressure on me that I like, because I know I can do it.”

While everyone has their favorite content creators, there’s no denying that Paul has certainly made a name for himself in internet history — but whether or not his legacy remains in the years that come remains to be seen.

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.
