This is my Christmas gift to myself. An in home gym. I got so sick of paying $90 per month for a gym membership so this will pay for itself in the next 2 years. The free weights, bench and elliptical are brand new as of yesterday. The treadmill I got a couple months ago and the weight machine was given to me from a friend who got a new one. I painted the walls and had new carpet installed last week. I want to add some mirrors on the wall near the weight machine but that will come later. I have a decal to add that says

"MOTIVATION
is what gets you started.
HABIT
is what keeps you going."

I have some other fun pictures to hang up that will inspire and motivate. I am training to be in a fitness competition in May so this will help a lot. Finding time to go to the gym as a single mom has been a real bitch! Here is my attic loft which was just another guest bedroom that is now my home gym with bathroom. Woohoo!!

Do you have a gym in your home? If so, please share yours... :)

I really need to finish my basement before I can even think of all that. I'd really like my own elliptical.

I do love the TV.  I can just flip on a show and before you know it 30-60 minutes has passed.   I got everything off of craigslist.  The treadmill & elliptical are way outdated but they will work for now.  I'd love to get a squat rack...that will be next!

No pictures, but I have a treadclimber, elliptical, and weight bench and weight set.  I think we might end up selling the elliptical and get a treadmill.

Your gym is in your bathroom?

I had a treadmill a while, but never used it. 

EDIT: I improved my reading comprehension and saw that it is in your attic. That's pretty cool.
