Default Exercise equipment

I have a theracycle - electric exercise bike that will help maintain movement by doing the work for you but as soon as it picks up on your effort, it allows you to do the work. This will exercise legs and upper body.
I also own a veloped - all terrain outdoor walker. Has two configurations: city and all terrain. It's awesome because it can go in snow, mud, etc. Nothing will stop it. Has attachments for you golf equipment if you need that.

I also have an ab coaster - awesome for the core! Easy to use, entertaining, and has several advanced settings that I can't use yet.

My "home gym" doesn't get much use these days as I prefer as others have said the social aspect of going to gym/group classes/studio.

I do find though that when I am recovering from an relapse, that I "get re-started" with home gym stuff, and did use each of these on a steady basis, but once my fitness/stamina built up and fatigue not as big an issue, headed back to the gym.

Wii fit plus with balance board
Yoga DVDs, mat, blocks
Balance ball and DVDs
(notice the emphasis on balance stuff for home?)

Would you consider walking the dog a home fitness plan? After a particularly bad relapse, I could barely take her for a walk to the end of the back lane and back without needing a nap, but peristence paid off and was able to increase to much longer walks. I now take my dog for 2 short walks a day, with longer hikes on weekends.

Cheers,
Karen

Karen, I've never really considered a dog part of a home gym, but you make a good point. Walking a pup is definitely exercise!

It makes sense to have balance stuff at home, especially after a relapse. Good tips!

And Fred, what Crossfit equipment do you have for the home? I know some of it can be pretty large. Do you have rings mounted, etc.? Plyo boxes are great.

I have a few kettle bells and some dumbbells. Some light lifting seems to help my spasticity.
