    3: I'm not using my money - using my sports betting winnings.


    I have no doubt you can get results with much cheaper equipment but you also gotta make sure the wife likes the equipment and feels comfortable training on it etc. One of the reasons for the bumper plates is because of my wife.

    Every piece of equipment I have ever purchased including the bike I created the bike workout on has been a game changer. If you have the space and ability to do this I would not hesitate for one second. If you spend lots of time training you will never look back I promise you this.

    And I would make the space as fabulous as you are able so you want to be there and your kid does and your wife does too.

    It's an investment into yourself and your family at the very minimum.

I'm sure I could get some of these items cheaper if I decided to shop around but it's easier just to order everything from the same place and be done.

    I spent less than $1,000 on my stuff.

    I bought a new but cheap rack and bench. Cheap bumpers, used weights. I can do Oly lifts I desired.
