HOME

University senior who works out
daily in his parents' Bloomfield
Township home, also finds it more
convenient than a gym. "I can do
part of my work out in the evening,
and part in the morning, depen-
ding upon my classes and my stu-
dying," says Oster. "Working out
is very important to me," he adds,
"and this way, I can work it into my
schedule. I don't have to waste
time going someplace."
Oster works out primarily with
free weights and the Marcy home
gym with six different weight sta-
tions. He also uses a sit-up board
and a stationary exercise bike for
cardiovascular fitness. Although
he works out at home alone, Oster
learned his fitness techniques from
trainers at the Powerhouse Gym.
A Birmingham architect com-
bined a work out room in his base-
ment with his children's playroom,
keeping a 15x15 area, "so we can
spend time together." His area
features a stationary bike, a bench
for bench presses, free weights
and a stand and a preacher's curl.
Two years ago, he began working
out three days a week with trainer
Lewis.
"I found I had been spending
all my time either at a drawing
board or on an airplane," he says.
"I knew I had to do something
regularly to stay in shape."
Convenience and proper train-
ing are the architect's primary con-
cerns. He had been a member at
a local health club, but found he
was not getting there consistent-
ly, nor was he using all of the
machines properly.
Interestingly, a majority of those
who put in home gyms have join-
ed a health club, have seen the
benefits of working out, and now
want the convenience of working
out at home," says Bob Mon-
tgomery, owner of American Exer-
cise and Gym Equipment Com-
pany in Southfield. "Many people
are coming in with a prescription
from a fitness trainer to get this
machine or that," he adds. Fisher
noted that his trainer played an in-
strumental role in putting together
