I suppose my Vive is my favorite piece of "gym equipment". Beats the hell out of a treadmill for cardio.

I got sick of gyms so I wound up with a bunch of my own equipment. The only significant thing I havent managed to replicate was the pool, just too darn expensive even to get one of those endless pools to swim laps, those are about as expensive as a regular pool. Movement in water is excellent for joint health. So are things like tai chi.

So I got an elliptical, a refurb retirement from a gym, replaced the belts and wheels and its like new, for about 15-18% of the price.

Scored a leg press/squat off ebay for 2 hund, I love that thing

And no home is complete without a place to do pullups and dips. Bodyweight exercises go a long way.

Checked the interwebs, and they list plastic pools for about $1300 for exercising. That's roughly equivalent, from what I've seen, to high end exercise equipment.

Thanks! I think the thing is, I have a bit too far to go to do that, I'd need it indoors. And to actually swim....requires those pumps like what the endless pools company does, and that's the really expensive part. I'm not a huge fan of going in the water anyway, most of the time its too cold, its got to be like 95 degrees out for me to actually want to go in a pool. Then again, swimming laps requires colder water, much above 72 and you cant do laps in it. I'll check it out though...but doubt I'll build something off the back of the place to have a roof over it

I use everything from spin bikes to smith machines, but I love using kettlebells and the squat/bench/pullup rack with bumper plates. So many exercises can be done on that, including deadlift, clean + jerk, and snatch

I find a nice looking woman and then use whatever equipment that happens to be nearby.

The yoga mat.



YES! I was just thinking of saying this too. I'm a huge fan of FitYoga so yes, a yoga mat is a favourite.
