My garage is only 7' tall, so this gym barely fit -- 1/2" to spare:
Ya gotta love Craigslist -- I got this gym for $250 with an additional $70 delivery and set-up by the previous owner. It was like $1400 new and is in great shape. It's an MS-2000 by MultiSports. Given how much it is to join and go to a gym, and my track record of actually going to a gym, it's way cheaper to have my own equipment. I also have a used treadmill and an elliptical that I bought new ages ago (my advice now: never buy new unless you're rich). I prefer to walk outside when it's nice out, so the treadmill is more for rainy days or night time use -- or if I want to watch a TV show while I'm exercising.
I've read that free weights and a weight bench are better, but I'll start with this. I can always sell it on Craigslist!
