    You can usually find a new Olympic barbell & weight set for about $200

    This just might be the exact thing for me, because at 48-years-old I can't afford injuries, plus with not having a great deal of room this looks like it would be absolutely perfect for me. Plus I think I could convince my 21-year-old son to use it once a week to to get him off the computer for a short HIT session. By default he's already eating primal most of the time with, because he eats what I put on the table. For something of this type and quality I'd be willing to spend $900.

    I started BBS and got a planet fitness membership. At $10 a month and no contract it is hard to beat.

    For any Canadians in the audience thinking about this, you find them at Fitness Depots, 300 lb set for $248. Crappy Tire has a set as well, $299 regular price but they often go on sale for $50-$100 less.

    MightyAl: The problem for me with a Gym Membership is in order to get my HIT workout done in less than 1.5 hours I'd have to go to the gym at midnight to get away from the crowds.

    We do BBS with a Powertec too. I think it is amazing. SUPER heavy duty and even though it is expensive, I feel like the quality is still way above the price.

    What we really like about it though is that you can truly go to complete exhaustion without any danger to yourself, or needing a spotter. I have collapsed several times under the squat and bench press. Awesome workout.
