My new work place has an onsite gym!

Just thought I'd post to make you all jealous!
Now it's not amazing, I'll admit, but it's for free and it'll help me fit cardio and some extra sessions in.
It's got a 2 x treadmills, bikes, steppers, a couple of benches, DB's upto 30kg (poor I know), and a few standard bars and plates.  I've seen a few 20kg plates so there should be enough weight for me.  A cable X over and a 4 station multigym thing that has a few things like various presses, lat pulldown, leg press (low weight stack though).  There's also a dip station and chin up bar.
I know this is a basic setup but it'll be a great addition to my routine and I should get some cardio done and even some of the ligher weights sessions (shoulders, arms, abs) done at lunchtime.  I could even train here full time if I needed to but I'd have to go light weight/high rep for some exercises.  It'd save me £35 a month though.
Legs will be the main problem as there's no rack, but I'm doing 20 reppers at the minute and I could potentially throw the weight over my head.

    x2  Lucky!  I wish my company subsidised gym memberships, especially for some in our shared service centre!!  One of our divisions in the states gives $100 towards a fitness goal over 12 weeks, but no-one else does...bah!
