Behold a source of contention in our family room!
My 14-year-old son Willie and I are soon starting the workout program P90X together.
And so I told my wife that I wanted a "power tower" for Christmas, that allows for certain exercises.
It came in a small box and I assembled it today. It's bigger than we thought it would be.
Here is Willie trying it out in our family room:

Now we do have a gym in our house, but it already has a lot of exercise equipment and a sauna in it, and this thing isn't going to fit in there.
Somehow Sabrina's regretting the purchase.
I think it makes a lovely addition to the family room; Sabrina says it belongs on the patio with a tarp over it.
You can help us settle that question below, but meanwhile, Willie and I are going to embark on the P90X 90-day challenge, and do a 1-hour workout together every morning for the next 3 months. This means we'll do an exercise DVD every day, which entails pushups, pullups, some weightlifting and other exercises.
Would you like to join Willie and me in the P90X 90-day challenge, and do it with us over the next months?
If you want to do it with us, get a copy of the P90X program (probably buy one used on eBay) and then tell us you want to do it with us, using this form to contact us. We'll put you on a list to communicate with others doing it, we can share our experiences and guilt each other into keeping going!
Now here's a survey you can take to help us decide where to park the above monstrocity in our house:
