Buying Home Fitness Equipment
Article by Tom Berges
So you decided to change your habits and become fit, congratulations! You may have given this enough thought and decided you would go ahead and fork out money every month for a membership to a local gym but after going there for several months, you’re beginning to think about how crowded it’s been lately, how you’re always waiting for some sweaty brute to get off the machine so you can get started on your routine and what’s worse as no sooner you get started someone kindly comes up and asks if they can share the machine with you in between reps. At first it doesn’t bother you but the more you continue visiting the gym, no matter what time of day it is, there seems that you just aren’t able to get enough alone time on the machine to concentrate on your work out. What are you to do? Visit the gym late at night or get up early and go work out when presumably there is hardly any patron but the die-hards there. Stop! Here is a better idea.
Have you ever considered purchasing a fitness machine for your home? I know you are probably thinking where will I put this thing? Or this is too expensive to even consider especially in these economic times. Well, what if I told you that you’re wrong. Now a days most home gyms are designed to take up minimal space and that bad economic times are actually a great time to find deals on quality new and used fitness equipment. I’m not talking about hitting the local swap meets and garage sales every weekend or even scouring for a great deal on e-bay or craigslist. Even though by those means you do come across deals every now and then, but those great deals usually get swept up right away by another person looking for the same item and if you don’t act fast it’s long gone.
This is why purchasing new or used fitness equipment from a quality fitness online retailer makes sense; workout equipment such stair-steppers, treadmills, ellipticals, and home gyms are available and at unbelievably low prices thanks to our economy. These companies carry vast selections of quality used and new overstock items and they are pressed to sell their inventory that they are generally marked down upwards of 50% off the retail price and it’s not uncommon to also get free shipping, too. It’s literally an untapped source because most people think, since they are retailers they aren’t going to mark that stuff down more than 10-15%. And only those whom actually did the investigating found the great deals and saved hundreds.
You would also be surprised on how much of a savings you could purchasing a used commercial piece of fitness equipment, similar if not the same type that is available at your local gym. What’s more is that these types of workout equipment has gone through an inspection and had any defects or worn parts replaced, try finding that on a used piece of equipment listed in a classified venue or swap meet, the condition of the item is based on the sellers description and personal knowledge, which may or may not be correct. Another note worth mentioning is the savings obtained over time by purchasing from a fitness retailer and canceling that -.00 a month membership dues, which now accelerates your re-cooperative time on the costs of that purchase of a home gym or used commercial fitness equipment.
The deals are out there, don’t suffer from buyers remorse buying form a sporting good chain or department store, finding out later that you could have saved another two hundred bucks had you only did a little online searching. Bottom line, the online fitness equipment retailers want to move inventory, and they are willing to offer fantastic deals on that inventory to stay in business and purchase more inventory. It’s a definite win for both the consumer and the retailer.
