I’m not big on fitness equipment. Just about anyone can get a great workout with minimal time and gear. I’m a fan of bodyweight exercises for numerous reasons, so if I’d have to pick a piece of fitness equipment it would have to be a pullup bar. I recommend the free-standing ones created by trapezerigging.com.
