Whether you're setting up a gym, beginning your fitness journey or anything in between : you'll find the necessary equipment here. Everything from a single kettlebell to a complete home gym.
NB : when you're buying the plates, if you can, buy a set of a few hundred pounds. Unless you're adding to an existing collection, you'll frequently be using several of them at once.

Recommended : Pair of StrongerGrip Loadable 'Long' (27") Clubs. Perfect.
Body Solid EXM3000LPS Double Stack Home Gym
I like the Body Solid gear - well made, and nice & tough. That said, there are several similar gym setups on the market; many of which are quality pieces of equipment. To get an idea, check out the reviews on sites like Amazon.
NB : these things aren't exactly light, and if you've got a chance to get it delivered, take it. If you're getting one online, consider getting something like Amazon Prime first. A one-off cost which will make life a whole lot easier.

Smooth, well-made and extremely tough. Superb.

Recommended : TRX Suspension Training Equipment. Love it.
NB : if you can't see it listed here, drop a note in the Google+ Community pages; or check out our range of equipment on the Amazon Store. If you're a Prime customer, this is often the most cost-effective way to go.
