In this article I am going to reveal how to buy use fitness equipment.
Have you noticed that more and more commercials on TV promote these home gyms? http://www.lightinfitness.com/
Nothing gets me more upset than knowing people who really want to get a good quality workout spend more money than they need to because of slick commercial ads.
The fact is home gyms are no where near as effective as commercial fitness equipment.
The reason is simple commercial fitness equipment needs to produce results every hour of every day.
Home gyms don’t, since home gym manufacturers know that most people who buy home gyms won’t actually use the machines.
In fact most of the people who order those late night fitness machines never even take the fitness gear out of the boxes.
If they do take the machines out of the boxes, they may use the fitness gear for a few weeks and then they become expensive clothes hangers. Commercial fitness equipment on the other hand needs to run every day with a constant stream of users day in and day out.
So if you plan on using the exercise equipment I suggest getting commercial fitness equipment from used fitness equipment remanufacturers. Doing this rather than buying the gym equipment new will save you significantly, by as much as 50-70% or more.
These companies buy up health club equipment from companies who go out of business, then service the equipment to the original manufacturers specifications.
Once the gym equipment is serviced and inspected, they then relist the gym equipment for resale.
Just make sure you buy from a company that has been in the industry for over five years and has a good reputation and references.
Call their customer service department to ensure that a real person answers the phone and that they are able to answer your questions, provide insight into the fitness equipment you are looking to purchase and offer other suggestions.
Also ensure that the company does in fact have their own full-time exercise equipment service team and parts. This way you know the equipment is serviced and parts are available in the future, should you ever need anything.
Another tip, would be to find out how large their warehouse facility is because you want a company that can store the gym equipment. This way they can buy the exercise equipment in bulk, saving even more money. Ideally, look for a company that has over 15,000 square feet.
Having less than that and they don’t have the storage facility to buy in bulk which is ok, you just won’t save as much since the company won’t get as good of a price for the gym equipment.
Following these tips, you will save yourself thousands of dollars and get a be
