    I have the following in my garage:

    1. Cage (with pullup bar and dip attachments)
    2. Bench
    3. Olympic BB and plates
    4. Kettlebells
    5. Heavy bag
    6. Cross trainer (with hindsight, a rower/Versaclimber would be better)
    7. Ab wheel
    8. Foam roller
    9. Skipping rope
    10. Gymboss timer
    11. Swiss ball
    12. Medicine ball
    13. Standard BB and plates
    14. Tractor tyre and sledgehammer
    15. Weighted vest

    I use 1-10 the most. With only a few things (cage, Oly weights, skipping rope) you can perform a variety of workouts.

    If looking at cages, consider your height with your arms extended incase you want to do any overhead work - I didn't so have to do it outside the cage.

    This was one of the main reasons I started putting together a home gym - it gives you the flexibility to buy/use the exact equipment you want and when you want it. Listening to mates spending 70/month on a gym membership, I think annual costs are very comparable, if not cheaper.


    Also see http://www.rosstraining.com/forum/vi...hp?f=9&t=17520 for ideas.
