I put together the Iron Gym last night. It was pretty simple to assemble, as long as you pay close attention to the instructions; although, the tools that come with it are pretty weak. There is only one doorframe in my house that was appropriate to use with the Iron Gym as you need to be able to slide this little anchor behind the doorframe to ensure that the Iron Gym doesn't fall off of the wall while you are on it (that would be a BAD thing!).
I have decided that I would like to start incorporating yoga into my fitness routine. I have always been very interested in yoga and a few years I ago I watched/practiced with the FitTv program Namaste Yoga; however, I soon grew tired of having to fast forward through the commercials. I would definitely use FitTv more often if they didn't have commercials during their programs, but I digress... I would like to incorporate yoga into my routine, but yoga classes at studios by my house are expensive ($15-20 per class) and that is a bit out of the budget right now. So, in the meantime, I have been considering purchasing a few yoga DVDs, using a site like yogadownload.com, free OnDemand shows from FitTv, and using the videos that Polly has on yoga is yummy. Any suggestions?
