Squat Rack - I want!

I am seriously considering getting myself a squat rack. I've asked around and there is one available for the price of RM2,300. Pricey. But come to think of it, it's pretty much like the cost of 2-years' worth of gym membership. I can either pay cash for it or easily swipe my credit card and arrange for a 24-month instalment - very similar to the modus operandi of commercial gyms galore.

So yeah. The financing is pretty much arranged. But is it really worth it?

Space is an issue. Although I can easily tweak the arrangement of my furniture (I have lived 5 years in my apartment, and the furniture layout has not changed at all) to accomodate the rack.

Getting a squat rack would address quite a number of issues actually. I can train alone without worrying about not having a safety catch or ruining my dining chairs (too late, they're already ruined). I could hang my TRX at the frame. It's pretty much a complete gym.

Any opinions? For or against?

I would buy a squat rack If I'm staying in my own house.

Imagine waking up in the morning, have a quick pre-workout and start squatting (and training). Yahooooo!

Home gym > gym membership anytime.
