The list author says: "A list of basic items for getting a great workout at home. People have asked me where they can get stuff for my own home gym, and so I'm providing a list for that reason. Some of this stuff is just comparable to what I have, others are are things I haven't bought, but I think might work out for someone else, or I'm thinking about purchasing. Some things I purchased on Amazon, others at local retailers. Check some discount places, and keep eyes open for price changes on these things. You might find some great deals used, too.

"Select the 6" foam roller. Great for rolling out knots in the body, prior and after a work-out or cardio. Also just nice to do every day, just for the massage factor. It can be painful, but totally worth it.
"Great set of adjustable weight dumbbells. Adjusts up to 20# per dumbbell. 2 sets are better than one, if you want to switch between weights, quickly. If you only workout with light weight, you might consider purchasing separate 5lb, and 10lb traditional dumbbell sets, instead."
"Good basic weight bench. Pretty simple to assemble. Mine came a bit banged up in shipping, but the company was quick to replace the broken and lost parts. Very basic, and not for heavy duty lifting, but will serve a beginner pretty nicely. The price seems to vary, so keep an eye out for deals on this."
"If you don't want to get a whole weight set, a basic bench will do. This one is the cheapest, but it'll serve basic dumbell workouts. You might also consider looking into an incline-decline bench, as well, which can add variety to a work-out."
"The aforementioned adjustable bench. Not a bad price on it. Lots of great reviews. I don't own this one, but if I didn't own my weight set, which comes with an adjustable bench, I just might try this out."
"Got this one for taking to client's homes. Great bench. The legs didn't look to me like they'd hold, when I took it out of the box, but it's actually a nice quality, sturdy bench. It's about 40lbs. Very impressed with it."
"Medicine balls are very "old school," but great for advanced core work. Looking into these, myself, but haven't purchased any, as of yet. This looks like a pretty good deal for a set. They can be pretty pricey, depending on weight and size. Cando sells a set on Amazon, occasionally, but I can't seem to find it, right now."
