Chin-up bar on external roof

Hi all. Just found this website and looking for some advice. On the small balcony we have I have some space to put up a chin up bar or Olympic Rings. There will only be one of the two, and the use won't be anything other than just static strength movement to, ie: nothing ballistic or high impact. I just wanted some advice on if me, 189lb man would be able to use this part of the structure without any problems or possible damage.

I would attach the bar to the horizontal beam and not the rafter ends or fascia.
