I think it cost me about 2,400 for the TITAN gym and then i spent about 300 on some weights,but i have made myself quite a few from scrap steel that i find on work sites.it might seem expensive but i`ve been training for nearly 30 years and i plan on carrying on for the next 30,so in the long run it will save me money.

hey your a brit!... my setups just a weights bench with fly and leg extensions and a "standard" barbell, dumbells, and a load of cast standard weight plates... got alot of it on sale or stock clearance so didnt cost me much over 100 for it all

wana upgrade to a nicer system soon though, as soon as im working (finish college on friday). i want an olympic weights set and a more heavy duity weight bench with a selection of bars and plates etc, have a setup i can really push myself on and that will last for a looooong time!

I`ll post a few pics of the scrap steel i find and what i`ve made out of them.Here`s the steel plates that weigh about 400lbs each,so i made some 75lb plates and some dumbells.

The red plates are the 75lbs that i made from that steel.The red plate with holes in it was a from a Texaco distribution plant that closed down,it was a end cap off one of the pipes.It weighs 130lbs.

The plate you see here was from a factory that made gaskets and they let me have this scrap,so i had a piece welded in the middle and it weighs 90lbs.The long bar was bent from having a JCB run over it,so i made a triceps pushdown bar and a load of dumbell handles from it.

Wow that's a cool weight machine Mr Crownshep! I have a universal gym as well, but nowhere near as nice as your titan. Mine has the three stations to work arms, legs, and torso. I admire how you put scrap metal to use, I do something similar with boxing equipment. Across the pond engineering?

I like the sound of that "across the pond engineering",i`ll show you what i made from some scrap that was used to hold gas cannissters,i bought it back to my work unit,cleaned the rust off and made a dumbell rack.If you notice the thick bolts sticking out the top of the steel tubes,well i had those welded to the end to hold the weight plates.

Then i found some 1 inch thick rubber,so i drilled it and bolted it along the bottom,welded some steel across the middle for the dumbells to rest on.
