Hmm. I like that couch idea.

Scenery? If you're doing strenth training you'll be in a weight room and all there is in there is a bunch of sweaty guys. You'd have to be ga...oh...sorry...it'* starting to make sense now. :P lol
Unless you sign up for an aerobics class or something. But around here if you sign up for a class like that just to perv girls they throws ya out. :( Not that I have any experience with that...

Free weights are the only way to go. Buy an olympic weight set with bench and squat rack and throw it in the basemant. I've lifted at home since summer. When I started I could barely bench 225 now i'm at almost 300lbs. Great investment.

IDK, I think home is better. At the gym you have to wait and wait and wait for use of equipment. At home you just walk downstairs and start. Plus, you can prove this statistic wrong.
