Lets see what yall have for gym at your house. I hate going to gyms because of my work schedule and amount of people there. We have a split garage with a good sized single car stall that Im going to put some basic equipment in. Bench/incline/decline/squat rack, dumbbells, pull up bar. That prob it to start with.

Give me some ideas on affordable flooring and pics of what yall have

Your best value in flooring will probably be the 4x8 rubber stall mats from TSC

I stole this off the Nextdoor app for $300 including over 500lbs of weights last month. The dumbbells,bike and ab machine Ive just picked up over the years. This is a good time for all the New Years people to unload the stuff they bought. The big mat came out of a truck I bought, guy was using it as a bed mat.

Thanks,

Against the wall is the squat machine(dont have a good pic of that side), the 2 45s on the lower left above the cinder blocks control the weight for the lat pull down. I think thats what you were asking, it kinda all gels together from that angle.

My home "gym" is minimalist. I utilize a lot of body weight/gravity movements in my training anyway. If I want to externally load I go to our local rec center.

Missed the part about the flooring. Agree that the best value is the stall mats from Tractor Supply for quality and durability. Have used these in training and rehab settings and they take the 10 hour/day punishment.

I live alone in a 5-bed house. I have a treadmill and a "Total Gym" in one room, heavy and speed bags in the next, and free weights in one. All from garage sales. I think I have about $300 total invested. The "Total Gym" looks like a toy, but if you use is right it can be a workout. Just got off the treadmill. I paid $50.00 for it. It's a Nordic Trac and goes for about a grand. I boxed for years in my youth so the best workout for me is the heavy bag.

I try to go three 3-minute rounds a few times during the week and an 8 or 9 round on the weekend. A minute between rounds. It's great for legs and cardio and it helps not being punched back at!
