    i get the feeling my home gym isnt that great.

    it has cardio machines: a room full of exercise bikes, a number of treadmills, cross trainers, mats for stretching/using medicine balls and suchlike.

    it has weights machines like flye machine, lat pulldown, leg press, shoulder press etc.

    the free weights area: the lowest dumbbell is 2kg and the highest dumbbell is 40kg and they go up in 2kg increases (the dumbbells come in pairs as you would expect). there are the cable weight things, there is one bench press, a smith machine and a small barbell which people use to do things like preacher curls.

    thats it. there is no squat rack and if you want to deadlift, you need to take the bar from the bench press but thats always in use (i have never seen anyone deadlift there).

    does my home gym sound good?

    It sounds like if it's really a home gym someone in your house has more money than sense.

    sorry i would like to clarify that this is not a gym in my home. it is the gym i visit in my home town when i am on holiday from uni. as opposed to my uni gym which i visit during term time.

    sorry for the confusion.

    I'd hate not having a barbell to use.
