Friday Five: My Home Gym Equipment Wish List

I made the decision this year to not get a gym membership. Instead I have been working out from home and so far it has been great. It is super convenient to get a good workout from the comfort of my own home. I seriously have no reason to not workout. Don't get me wrong I do miss the gym, but mostly I miss certain gym equipment. I miss having a squat rack, a pool, a sauna, and other stuff. Little by little I am collecting equipment to make up for no longer having a gym membership. Here is my current wish list...hint, hint hubby!

I would love this!
I have been to a few gyms that have these and they are awesome.
You can get a full body workout without that added stress on your joints.
I'm keeping my eye on this!

Isn't she a beauty!
Like I said I miss my squat rack so this would definitely help with that feeling.
I can see myself building my booty with this and some added weights.
Oh the possibilities!

Never underestimate a simple workout bench.
It is super multifunctional.
 And can target different areas of your body for a good workout.

I have dumbbells but kettle bells are a ton of fun.
I used to do a full body workout with these at my previous gym.

Full Length Mirror

Honestly any full length mirror will do. 
This one just happens to be from Ikea.
Having a mirror allows me to check out my form.
It sounds a bit vane, but I miss looking at myself when lifting.
