There's lots of reasons some of us need to work out at home--we're caretakers, too busy to get to the gym or we don't have the budget. But we still can have a gym, even if it is in our living room.
I recently demonstrated my home gym on TV. I spent less than $100--an exercise ball $25, a broom (free in the closet), a mat (a throw from my living room), luggage strap for stretching hamstrings ($5) and two 5 pound weights.
Do you have your own low-cost solutions that you can share with me?

Wii Fit is Great! www.aarp.org/community/editor/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/msn/thumbs_up.gif" />
Hi, I'm new to the group. We got Wii Fit at Christmas and it is amazing. We already had Wii a couple years ago. Still, in the scheme of things, it's pretty cheap over the long haul and you don't have to go anywhere.
It measures your weight and BMI. It tracks your progress. It also notes when you haven't been on it in a few days. It even recongizes holidays and birthdays.
I have never enjoyed working out, but this is something that makes it easy and fun right in the comfort of your own home. I'm a fan and can't wait until a newer software version comes out.
