Ideal Home Gym?

So I have a home gym in the garage, and am considering upgrading it to an "ideal" home gym with a few more additions. Not a lot to be honest...

I'll list what I think my ideal gym is, but am chasing members' thoughts as I know there's equipment/methods out there that I haven't considered.

I'm focused on two aspects:

1 - Conditioning
2 - Strength / Rehab / Maintenance

So as follows:

1 - Conditioning

- "Assault Bike"*
- SkiErg* (Really like the look of this)
- Rower
- Woodway "person powered" Treadmill**
- Boxing bag
- Pack (Pack walks)
- Prowler Sled
- Battle Ropes
- Am considering the "Inertia Wave" bands*...anyone used them?

2 - Strength / Rehab / Maintenance

- Squat rack/cage, with pullup bar, and lat pulldown attachment
- Bands
- Adjustable seat/bench
- Oly bar & weights
- Trap Bar*
- Dumbells
- Kettlebells
- TRX & Rings
- Tyre/Tire

* - To get
** - Upgrade from current 20 yr-old weary electric treadmill

I know I'm looking at doubling/tripling up on some equipment, but I like a little variety in my training. Plus it means the wife and I can train together.

Anything obvious that I've missed out on, or should avoid?

Thanks in advance.
