Instead of paying a monthly gym fee, my brother in law and I decided a small gym setup in the house (or back patio?) would be more worthwhile. I'm looking for equipment that can work arms and legs. Curls, pull downs, some light bench press, etc. A medium workout. We have a treadmill already (although I prefer running around the neighborhood). I'm new to this gym equipment stuff so any advice would be a great asset. We've all see the Bowflex commercials...how good are their systems? (in terms of value and usability) Oh, and lastly, I would like to set this up in our basement corner. Approx. 15ft x 15ft of room for the equipment. (Basement is larger than that). Or would the back patio be a more prefered location?
