More fun than shoe shopping

I cracked it this week with our inadequate home weights setup. So today I dragged Bike Boy out to investigate some shiny new equipment. I'm looking at one of these:

It's commercially rated, has a lifetime guarantee and we can get a great deal on a package including a really solid bench, a couple of handles, detachable dip bars, and some rubber flooring. I've also found some rubber coated ezi grip plates online at a bargain price.

No more driving to the gym.....bliss!

Ha! Lucky for me, MY boy is pretty fitness-obsessed. He's happy to poke around in gym equipment and sports stores and especially bike shops.

I'm sure he was picturing himself doing manly chin-ups and benching mega-weights. :o)

I'm looking at buying a BowFlex Home Gym... know anything about them?

Thanks for the info Kek, much appreciated. I use free weights at home now, but was thinking of a machine for more leg and arm/chest weight bearing exercises... but maybe you are right and it is better to just stick with the free weights. We used to have a home gym a while ago but the cables kept wearing out and snapping! We did use it most days. I will have to do some more 'homework' on them and their benefits I think.

Looks like a nice little package, can see many exercises you can do with it.
