    Share your home gym!

    I can't be the only person here without a gym membership! I have a small "home gym" that I've added equipment to over the years. How about the rest of you non-crossfitters without gym memberships? What are do you have in your home gym? What's your favorite piece of equipment or feature about it?

    • Liebert Equalizer
    • doorframe pull-up bar
    • interlocking foam tiles (to protect my hardwood floor… and my bones!)
    • 8lb dumbbells (yes, I'm a weakling)
    • one resistance band
    • 10 lb kettlebell
    • cheap-o stationary bike
    • yoga mat (which I rarely use, as I only needed it before I got the aforementioned tiles)
    • ankle weights
    • small kinda-sort-wants-to-be-a Bosu ball
    • jump rope
    • Garmin Forerunner (gps watch & heart rate monitor)

    Okay, kids. Share!

    workout mat
    do my pull work outdoors on the tree limbs.
    have some big logs to throw round
    run sprints in my yard
    16' trampoline
    I'd say jump rope ...somewhere
    Bosu and regular exercise ball
    bands mounted to wall
    wobble boards

    Really thats bout it....

    Got a bunch of that other stuff (sledge, pick, shovel, all manner of tools) cause I maintain a lot of trees, a garden, and generally build or change something in my yard or house every weekend. Thats just part of my stay moving philosophy though.

    Home Gym:
    Yoga Mats (I think I also have a block & strap which I may have used)
    Exercise Ball
    Pull-up bar
    5 & 10lb weights
    water bag (I'm not the main user of this)
    jump ropes
    Apps/websites for phone and computer (WODs, techniques & more)

    and kind of tongue-in-cheek (yet still legit) things in my "home" gym:
    The playground down the street (monkey bars, rings, LOTS of stairs to run, & more)
    Tennis Courts across the Street
    Central Park (ball fields, running/biking trails, "challenge course" stuff - trees, rocks & more!)
    NYC Rec Center w/pool ($150/yr, but worth it!)

    Wish List:
    an Om Gym - a friend has one, it looked awesome
    stretching bands (they sell them by the foot in different strengths/tensions at JackRabbit)

    An elliptical that I really only use in the winter, and a door frame pull up bar that get's used regularly. That's about all I've needed so far.
