    I recently helped someone with a home gym. We got:
    I would start with a rack, a bench, a barbell, barbell weights. This should run to about 900-1200€ I would guess.

    Can't really add much to takeahnase's list, but some grip equipment would be good...grippers, sledge, thick bar...

    In terms of self-made equipment, I would add a Prowler, Farmer's Handles and Sandbags (the sandbag in the list above is actually a boxing heavy bag).

    What are your goals? How much room do you have? Do you have a yard as well?

    In general tak's list is pretty solid, though you could probably trim a lot of that off depending on your goals and your mechanical aptitude.

    Tak do you mind posting the price break down per item?

    The absolute basics are a power rack (home made or purchased), a oly platform if you intend to do those lifts, a good barbell, and some bumper plates. Of those things the barbell and the bumper plates are the only things that cannot really be made yourself.

    Unfortunately, it would be too much effort to track down the individual items. I did not put a lot of effort into finding deals, as we had pretty much unlimited funds (10000

    Get yourself a nice rack that has pullup and dip bars, a nice bar and enough weights. Then get some cardio equipment like a rower or an airdyne, and some fighting stuff.

    Also get a huge widescreen plasma and the Rocky boxset and have that playing on loop in your home gym 24/7.
