Shkragoldfish:  I have a Proform treadmill and I know they make bicycles and ellipticals as well, they have the insert for ifit cards so you can get special workouts for the equipment (I have a Jillian Michaels treadmill workout and it kicks my butt).  The treadmill has held up nicely over the past three years with some fairly heavy use, so I’d recommend that brand.  I believe FI ordered it on Amazon during a black friday sale.

I am curious to see what other Bees say about adding home fitness equipment to your registry, because FI and I have had our house for over 5 years and have already gotten a lot of the regular household goods one typically registers for and we are looking to make our home gym a little more legit.  I think it’s a good idea, and would be happy to purchase items like that for a friend.  But I could see some of my older relatives being upset at the idea.

For apartment living, definitely recommend an adjustable dumbbell set like one of the following:

I have used a Bowflex adjustable set in the past and found it easy to use and great for a small space!  There are several on amazon to compare reviews and prices. 

I don’t think it would be wrong to register for something both of you will get a lot of use out of at home.  I don’t see much difference between that and registering for pots and pans, but some of your more traditional guests may not agree.  For that reason, gift cards are always nice!  🙂

What’s wrong with registering for it? If people feel like its weird they just won’t get it for you. Then you can just use some of the cash gifts to buy it afterwards. I don’t know for sure since I am very recently engaged but when I see odd things on other people’s registries I forget about it 2 seconds later lol.

Shkragoldfish:  Have you thought about a TRX training system?  I know it’s not your typical dumbell workout, but I find it to be be very versatile.  It’s also great for space saving.
