I'm looking to assemble versatile pieces of equipment for home use. Budget isn't a huge concern (not that I'm trying to spend top dollar, either), but space is. I'm hoping to invest a little at a time over the next 6-12 months. Hoping to do it for under $5K when all is said and done. Beyond the accessories I take to the gym now (belt, gloves), I don't really have much equipment.

Trying to get a versatile rack, cardio equipment, and maybe some adjustable dumbbells (despite some issues I've had with adjustables in the past). I've been scanning FB Marketplace and CL for used plates.

Wondering if anybody has experience with any of the larger purchases I have my eyes on:

https://www.titan.fitness/cages-and-racks/t-3-series/t-3-rack-combos/t3-power-rack-lat-pulley-tower-combo.html
Seems like it's versatile enough. I'm banking on the pully combo offering enough variety to allow me to change up my routine every few months. It says it doesn't need to be mounted to the floor, but I've heard of stories where equipment came falling down anyways during pull ups. Anybody have one not secured to their floor that cares to weigh in?

My wife and I went back and forth over cardio stuff. We talked about getting a stair stepper, rower, or treadmill. Currently considering this one since the incline can go up to 40 which sounds good. Wondering if anybody has experience with incline trainer functions or if we should just stick to a typical treadmill?

I had a cheap/crappy pair of adjustables that never seemed to work right and just got stuck while trying to switch more often than not. I'm looking to switch to powerblock. Anybody try them both and know if this will be a less frustrating set?

https://www.roguefitness.com/rogue-adjustable-bench-2-0
Last but not least, I need advice on an adjustable bench. I know I don't want to trust in a crappy/cheap one, but I was amazed at how much Rogue and Titan ones cost (Saw them for $500-850!). Are those worth the money? Or what's a more reasonable amount for a dependable bench?

Thanks in advance.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I never weigh daily anymore. I try to weigh weekly or bi-weekly, although I admit sometimes it's difficult to say "no" to the scale as I pass by it in the bathroom. I simply find it fluc ...
