    Like $200-$300 max, new or used.

    It needs to do a full body workout, I jog for cardio.

    He's trolling, ignore him.

    You won't get something that heavy duty for $300, but you can find a decent second hand one with some weights. You can work out your entire body with a power rack and barbells.

    Well you won't be doing olympic lifts, and anything you do IN the power rack will be safe because of the safety bar. Zero chance of crushing yourself, not that you'll be using enough weight to do any real damage anyways.

    What maine suggested. You'll be able to do much more and make better progress with freeweight barbell and a power rack than with a bowflex or some stupid machine.

    If that's your attitude I would suggest spending the $300 on something that might actually benefit you like a nice dinner. Seriously, weightlifting isn't for everyone, and I would be willing to bet it's not for you.

    I found free weights to be the most effective.

    Get a pull up bar too. They have nice ones now that don't mess up your door frame.

    Spend the $300 at costco for a 2 year membership to 24hr fitness.

    Stop being a pussy and caring what others at the gym will think of, everyone has to start somewhere.

    Lift, eat, sleep...get big.
