I dont have to be concerned with the snow covered roads, travel time to get there, persons using the equipment I want (or using the equipment I want but not using it for what it was intended for), people whom are annoying (after each set, checking the growth of their muscles, or acting like an idiot), etc, etc, etc.
Its just dealing with my imperfection and "the one" who is perfect: "The iron".
After deciding this, I turned on brains before opening wallet. I set on a course to educate myself on what I needed. F--CK! It's no harder then moving the little fingers these days to find (reputatable) sources on what you need to know and learn. Burns little calories as one is sitting on ass moving the fingers. Man this is tough!
Exterior physical things can be replaced; but, there is only one of each of us.
Our health is priceless, we would give it all to keep it. I live with a person who has dwidling health, and has more heart, more soul, than persons with so much more.
Our greatest wealth is our personal health. The iron is my best friend, and together we will grow together, and as we improve this will enable me to take care of the person I love, whom has much less than I in health, but much more in spirit.

- bar you can put more than 765lbs on and still fit the collars
- squat bar that doesn't put major strain on my shoulders and elbows, like a safety squat bar, texas squat bar, or buffalo bar
- 100lb plates so I don't have to spend all day loading up 20+ plates onto the leg press machine
Does this mean I should look for a new gym?

A: I do not believe underwear would fetch sufficient funds to underwrite a decent home gym.
B: Some homes, admittedly nice homes for normal inhabitants, do not have room for a squat rack, much less a ceiling to floor power rack.
C. As much as I love the sentiment that your health is your wealth, sadly for many of us our health is damn near all we have period. THere is no spending for weights in the budget. If you can indulge in that way yourself, keep your tongue in your mouth until you have walked a mile in someone else's boots, someone less fortunate than yourself in particular.
That said, some serious workouts can be had with body weight squats, home implements, thera' bands, etc.
No disrespect intended, just saying, all are not created equal except in the eyes of the lord.

my house is big and with the way I have everything set up, I don't have room for a home gym but of course if I really wanted to, I could make room. That's the thing. People have to really want it to do it.
For those who do go out and buy equipment, it's kinda crazy to buy new stuff because I am guessing something like 90% of used equipment is almost like new anyway.
