Before Fit Stanley heads off to his next host, I wanted to give him a tour of my gym, which is conveniently located in my basement.
There are no time limits on these cardio machines (other than my sanity).
Fit Stanley can do lots of different exercises on the Bowflex.
But I still prefer my free weights.
I have lots of fitness workout DVDs for Fit Stanley to choose from.
And even a few tried-and-true VHS tapes.
Of course, Fit Stanley loves the FitBall and foam roller!
I’ve been building my home gym over the past 10 years, and know I’ve gotten my money’s worth. I started with the VHS tapes and added free weights set by set as I got stronger. After a few years, I invested in the treadmill so I could run without leaving my kids alone in the morning. A few years after that, I got the elliptical when a (non-running related) knee injury kept me from running for a while. The Bowflex was my husband’s idea, and even my son uses it occasionally. From time to time I add new “toys” to help keep myself motivated, but most days I still prefer my basic cardio and free weights routine.
Do you workout at home?
Do you want to host Fit Stanley next?
(I’ll be reviewing his itinerary this week and sending him off this weekend.)
