Default At-Home Gym Reccomendations...

Ok all you Gym Heads...I have myself a genuine dilemma on my hands.

So lets see if ya'll can help me with this. I need to build an at-home gym. With commuting time to and from the gym included, my quest for personal fitness is taking nearly 3 hours out of my day. My requirements are as follows:

-Need 2 pieces of Cardio equipment, and one of them HAS to be a treadmill.

-Treadmill needs a 250lb capacity, and needs to be tough, has to be able to put up with daily 6-7 mile trips, with my 200lb frame coming down on it. It does NOT have to have the digital goofiness or LCD screens w/TV reception. That is retarded.

-Need a set of freeweights (dumbells), up to about 75 lbs. Anything more would just be overkill.

-Need a bench press/bar/weights. Preferably with a height adjustment for incline/decline use.

-DO NOT WANT A BOWFLEX. For a few reasons. First, I do not feel like making 1,892,347,432 payments of $29.99. Secondly, I know people who have them, and they dont seem to work as well as good old fashioned weights.

I have the supplements to the at home gym already. Stuff like the ankle weights, spring rope, Perfect Push-Up, etc...but I need a full on GYM...and I need it on a budget. Speaking of Budgets...here is the kicker. I cant spend more than $1,000. Thats roughly 2 years of gym memerships (I am guessing, I havent paid for a gym since I joined the Army, they are free on my post).

And no worries here about it being a waste of money, I LOVE to work out.

PLAYLOUD is on a distinguished road

Try the "Body-Solid Freeweight Leverage Gym" you can load it right up with no worries.

Its commercial grade as well you have to grease all the piviot point and there all heavy duty bushings.
There seems to be a few used ones for sale people seem to get in over their heads it is truly a commercial piece of equipment for a resonable price.

I have this plus a power rack a bunch of free weights and a treadmill.
I've had the three horse power Horizon Treadmill for 2 years now and it handled 5km a day 5 days out of the week no problem

I went this route for your same reasons it's an hour trip to the closest gym never mind a decent one

Cheers
