Thread: What would you spend a little $$ on?

    What would you spend a little $$ on?

    I may have a little spending cash coming soon, and I don't want to squander it. I had thought of getting a hair cut and piercing my nose, but maybe i'd rather spend it on some fitness-related gear. Any ideas? We're talking about $100-200 ballpark.

    there's an indoor climbing gym (whatever you want to call it) which is only $5/hour, but gear is required, so maybe i should buy some gear?

    another idea is a pull-up bar (though i know that won't eat up the full amount). or maybe dance lessons.

    any other ideas? i'm looking for something fun that will increase strength. it's ideal if i don't have to spend a lot of time outside the house, as i have small kids and rarely have a babysitter.

    My choices: haircut (I need one, too!), nose piercing and a pull-up bar! That way you can be stylin' while you are getting strong...

    If I had $200 to spend, I would get a professionally made sandbag or a Nature's Platform or Krav Maga punch and kick shields.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    hmm...that's an idea dragonfly. i HAVE been wanting to pierce my nose for over a decade now, but i keep putting it off.

    GC- googling that now. oh duh! krav maga!
    what do you do with the sandbag?
    lol nature's platform. i don't think that would fit in my bathroom.

    If you really want the nose piercing, get it - I always wanted fire-engine red hair, but never had the nerve to do it. Now that I'm 40something it would just look stupid. So go for it while you're young, I say!

    Sandbag's for weightlifting. They're good because the sand in them shifts and makes the bag uneven. Makes the lifts more challenging.

    If it were me, I would get my hair cut, my nose pierced, and a kettlebell. (See comments in the 4-Hour Body thread.)

    The kettlebell suggested above is a great idea, as well as the pull-up bar.

    For right at $100, if you look around, you can get a Power Tower, which has the pill-up bar, Roman chair, dip handles, etc.

    For under $20, I would suggest an ab roller wheel, sometimes dubbed "the wheel of pain". :-) These really help build core strength.

    Also...a good Yoga mat and a class maybe .

    I can't comment much either way on the nose piercing, and a hair cut for me is cheap, since I'm a guy. :-)

    Just yesterday I bought a weight vest which has 40 1-lb weights which you can remove to adjust the weight. The vest was $120 at Sports Authority and $99 at Sheels. I also had a $25 gift card at Sheels, so I actually ended up only paying $82 for it after tax.

    I'd skip the nose ring, just a personal opinion.
