Save the space for something useful like the above Bar. Bottles will not drink themselves, I know from experience.

I've done the home gym thing, I prefer going to the real gym for a number of reasons.
yoga pants, right?

Rogue rack and concept 2 rower. I have a bow flex max trainer 6 for my room for the early morning power up.
I also recommend getting a wall rack for several different rogue bars, itís like a gun rack. And a white board for the weeks plan.

OP, you said light weight routine.. we were in the same position, wanted a home gym as our nearest GYM is packed like a zoo, 24/7.. room we have is quite small (9x13) but made it all fit and works perfect.. again this is all light stuff and we do our running outside.. Tonal really made a difference as there are lots of diff exercise that can be done with this cable set up.. when compared to annual cost of two memberships it was a no brainer..

jmg any updates?

There are days I want to take my third stall and put a squat rack with some eleiko bumper plates.

However, my house sucks any motivation from me. I'd rather drive a mile to the gym and work out there. More motivating when I see others.

With that said, I still want a gym in my garage haha

Ditto. We started with an affordable stationary bike but I needed more motivation. A gym opened up nearby with more equipment than I would ever afford. We have personal trainers going through a circuit and I find it more effective having someone push me than I every would alone. My son started playing basketball, so I put a hoop up and that's enough to get out and move for being at home. It's much more convenient than basically losing a room just for gym equipment.

It sounds like you just want a gym in the house but may not (yet) be serious about working out. Don't spend so much or you could just be getting expensive equipment just to have it collect dust.

My 2 cents - If you have limited time/discipline/inspiration in a day and can only workout once, get a rowing machine. You'll achieve a lot more rowing than running on a treadmill or elliptical.

If you are semi serious, then get a decent set of dumb bells. You can get massive gains just working out with dumb bells. I prefer them to bar bells.

If you're hardcore then get a proper rack with bars for squatting and benching.

I have dumbbells. I now go to the local gym. I can do my dead lifts and rowing there!
