The Do-It-Yourself Gym
Sticking with an exercise regiment is hard enough on your body. Add the cost of joining a health club and the scheduling hassle of getting there and it's no wonder so many of us opt out. In fact, just 44 percent of people who belong to a gym use it more than 100 times a year, according to the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association. But the truth is, you don't need sophisticated equipment for a workout plan that works. For less than $50, you can assemble all the components required for full-body conditioning -- and get fit in the comfort of your own home.
