I found this video, of an island muscle head,  Alcindo Soares on a beach in Santa Maria, Cape Verde.  He is a construction worker on the island, who has built this gym on the beach with scraps collected out of the ocean.  That is impressive by itself, but what struck me as so cool was the effort the gym users were putting forth on this salvaged gym.  In the U.S. we think that new and shiny is best, but there is something to be said for putting forth effort with what you have, not looking for the newest trend.  Hard work trumps everything else eventually.
