I guess I am not worried about taking up too much floor space. And I just get bruised by jump ropes. Thanks for the suggestion, though. And I am fairly fit, too, so I am not worried about challenge.

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 ;)

Rubberbanditz bands for strength training. Got the basic set and have moved up over time. Worth every penny because it's so portable--goes every where I go and takes very little room in suitcase.

Plus it gives me a better workout than the machines ever did and I'm more form-conscious with these.

I got a used treadmill from a good friend who's moving to Colorado. (Fort Collins, you are so lucky!) It was only $50 and it's old and not fancy but it works! I've been able to use it twice now.

Do you have a great, inexpensive fitness find that you love? What is it and why?
