I love working out at home. I encourage my clients to do the same. In fact, I actually train most of them in their own homes regardless of equipment.
If you are thinking about starting a work out regime and can't stomach the idea of going to the gym, no problem! There are tons of great ways to work out in the comfort of your home with or without equipment.
However, if you want to make a minimal investment in a truly versatile piece of equipment, I highly suggest buying a TRX Suspension Trainer.

A TRX is basically a system of straps and pulleys that you can attach to a doorway or beam in your home. It facilitates strength training using your own body weight. The angle at which you position your body determines the percentage of your body weight that you are lifting - making the TRX perfect for any fitness level and allowing for progressions. The TRX also provides a great cardio vascular workout when exercises are performed in succesion at a quick pace. You can additionally utilize the TRX for flexibility training. It's everything you need to get your home gym tight!!
If you can't find a certified TRX trainer in your area to show you the "ropes", purchase some of the excellent DVD's as a companion to your TRX and you won't be disappointed. The DVD's provide amazing work outs for all fitness levels.
I am a certified TRX Trainer, so email or post your questions!
