The least expensive option for workout gear is simply the contents of your skin suit. Bodyweight exercises work and can be done anywhere anytime. Done correctly they will also provide a cardio component. As you progress you can do more and more challenging bodyweight moves to continue to make progress. Rather than a treadmill a $7 adjustable length jump rope with swivel handles will give you a quality workout and not take up floor space.
Some time ago I wrote a forum topic on a frugal gym listing my options for inexpensive workout gear.

Awesome!! I love my resistance bands by Gold's Gym that I got at Walmart. 3 bands that I can use separately or combined for extra challenge ;)
