It seems like a lot of stuff initially but really it depends on your goals. Are you a gym bunny? Do you like group class formats or running on a treadmill? Then go join a gym. Me I like having my equipment here at home :) That's why I like the P90X DVDs with the weights and pull up bar. We also have free weights on an Apex Olympic Hollow Bar Kit but I haven't used them much as I've been doing the P90X routine. I used the dumbells from that when I need heavier weight than the Reebok ones (15lbs and above) but honestly they are a little cumbersome for my frame. The dumbells themselves are HUGE. I'm clumsy enough last thing I need is a set of Dumbbells that are way to big for me that I clunk myself in the shin/knee/shoulder/head with them! I think I'll be buying a set of 15lb Body Solid Iron Hex Dumbbell Pairs or something similar, then buying more heavier ones as and when I need them.
Ok hope that helps with some idea's for a Holiday Wishlist! If you do see Santa could you tell him I'd like some new workout outfits, a new pair of shoes (I am due for a new pair soon!) and like I said, maybe heavier solid dumbbells that I don't hit myself with!
