As some of you know, over the last eight months I've become a complete fitness nut after being fat and unhealthy for many, many years. In the eight months since I started my fitness program, I have completely outgrown my existing equipment. Because my dedication has not waned--in fact it's grown stronger--about a month ago I decided it would be wise to turn a spare room into a dedicated home gym and purchase better quality strength training equipment. I finally finished the project yesterday! The room is done and the new equipment is assembled and installed. For anyone who can't go to the gym or doesn't like to go to the gym, has the extra room and is serious about getting into shape and staying that way, I highly recommend looking into a similar home gym setup. My equipment consists of a Powertec Power Rack, a Powertec Utility Bench, a 300-pound Olympic barbell set, a complete set of hex dumbbells (5-70 pounds), a stair climber and a stationary bike. Compared to the amount of money most of us spend on DVDs and home theater, the cost is surprisingly low and well worth the investment. For me, it's a lot easier to stay motivated when I don't have to spend an hour driving to the gym and back every day. I have pictures of the remodeled room and new equipment, plus more information on my fitness web page (look under the section titled "My Home Gym"). I would love to see other HTF member's home gyms, too. Post 'em up!
