In the market for a house and one of the things I am considering is getting some exercise equipment. I know you can make do with really basic things, but if everything aligns well (= we get a house with a large enough basement and we have the money) I wouldn't mind having some actual equipment.
Basically, I was thinking:
Basic Free Weights (The little neoprene ones most likely, not an actual bench/barbell)
For the actual equipment (bike, treadmill, ellipitical) I have seen everything from about $300 to $3,000. Is there really any strong benefit for the expensive things? What should I really be looking for? And is there anything I am really missing for a home gym?
