To be honest, all I need is my gym and my iTouch. I download (well, my techie hubby does it) favorite shows and I watch them, commercial free while I do my one hour of cardio. Then, it really doesn't matter what I'm doing, since I'm watching a show and I don't really notice my heard effort. I hope I answered your question, but I'm not sure if you're looking to buy equipment. I would go with dvd's, if that's the case. You can that way mix it up more. I like my exercise ball and my free weights for at home stuff.
