You got to be careful when you are thinking of starting off with a home gym especially if you are not familiar with the equipments and workout exercises at all. In a gym, you would be able to get a trainer who will help in planing your workout schedule and the type of excercises suitable for you. Alternatively, should you prefer to stay put working out in the comfort of your home, I would suggest at least start off learning about the fundamentals before you begin. There are many good books available that would offer some useful advices and guidances.
