Resistance Bands - I own some, don't use them much.

Dumbells - Own them. Used to use them quite a bit. Lately no. I am doing lunges, incline pushups, that sort of thing without dumbells... and tricep extensions in the kitchen with a large can.

Stability Ball - Own. Use tons. Have one that I use a computer chair. Mostly I just sit on it, although I do sometimes use it for exercises. I like doing wall squats with it. I have also been know to fall asleep on it. (Numerous times. Only fell off once.)

Exercise Mat - Own. Use rarely. Bought it for a class. At home I don't mind just lying on the carpet.

Jump rope - Maybe. If I do, I don't know where it is. Don't like jumping much. If I want to jump, I prefer my mini-trampoline.

Cardio machine (stationary bike, treadmill) - Nope. Although I do have a regular bike which allows me not only to exercise, but actually go places. I use it about 6 months a year. I also own a mini-trampoline, and a wii with a base to raise it to use for steps.

From SP article "6 Essentials for Your Home Gym"

Resistance Bands
Dumbells
Stability Ball
Exercise Mat
Jump rope
Cardio machine (stationary bike, treadmill)

Interestingly enough the e-mail I received linking to the slideshow was called "6 budget-friendly essentials... " I don't consider the last one really budget-friendly, although I guess it is if you buy one instead of going to the gym.

How many of these do you have?
Do you use them?
