    Default Home Gym

    I just got a new apartment, and frankly... I have an extra bedroom. It's just sitting there (I have my desk in the living room), with a spare futon mattress and nothing else. Thusly, I wish to make it useful.

    So, I thought of creating a home gym. I've heard the basics are a bench, a bar and some barbells, dumbells perhaps, and some bodyweight exercise tools a la 'zis:



    -for pullups, dips, modified pushups, etc. I'd also get a yoga ball because they can be ridiculously useful in creating bodyweight exercises.

    So, for the fitness aficionados on these forums, what other basics might you add to a home gym? Also, is there any reason ye prefer being a member of and going to a gym outside of your home?

    Cheers.

    I do not know how long I will live here. The lease is for six months.

    My budget, for now, is <$500, so... multipurpose items are a welcome suggestion.

    I currently have a membership to a gym... If I had my own personal gym, my only real reason to go to an outside gym would be if I wanted to keep my personal trainer. I get frustrated in the gym because I'm not the most patient person and some people like to hog machines... It's not so much a problem with the cardio stuff since there is a lot of those....but the weightlifting stuff...grrr...

    Once me and my fiance get moved into our house we're planning on turning part of the garage into a fitness room. We'll have a treadmill, punching bag/speed bag, elliptical, yoga ball, and I think his dad is giving us his bow-flex thingy...
