Health and Fitness – Buying Used Fitness Equipment

If you are dedicated to your health and fitness, but are sick and tired of the time it takes to work out at the gym you might want to look into getting used fitness equipment for your home. With the right knowledge you will be able to find equipment that is in perfect condition, for a fraction of the price.

With the economy the way it is right now if you are going to buy anything you should be buying it at a discount. These steep price reductions are available because most people are selling off anything in their home, they aren’t using, for extra cash. On websites like E-Bay, Overstock, or Craig’s List you should be able to find just about anything you need.

There are also people who have defaulted on their finance payments for their fitness equipment. You can assume or pay off their balance to get their used machines at a steep discount.

Buy Only What You Need

Let’s face it. Some of the fitness equipment out there is a bit ridiculous. You don’t need half of the stuff commercials try to sell to you. What is important is that you value your own health and fitness.

Otherwise you are wasting your money, time, and space in your house or apartment. So make sure you have a solid commitment to health and fitness before you make your purchase.

For cardio workouts treadmills, rowing machines, bikes, and elliptical machines work great. You really only need one in your home to get the cardio you need so pick the machine based on the workout you enjoy doing the most.

For heavy lifting or toning of the entire body a simple used resistance machine, like the Total Gym or a Bowflex are all you need. Good workout benches, dumbbells and free weight sets are also easy to find.

Try It Out First

If you are unsure as to what kind or type of used fitness equipment you would like for your home then you should go to the gym and try some out and see what you like. Remember to make sure that it is a machine you are going to have fun using over and over again. Then look on-line and see what is available.

Also remember that most used fitness machines don’t come with a warrantee, or if they do it is generally short, so you are often stuck with what you buy once you get it. Try to find some customer reviews of the product before you buy it to see if there are common problems associated with it.

Is It Going To Fit?

Believe it or not, some people don’t take into account the space that is needed for fitness equipment and end up with something they don’t have room for. Most fitness equipment is also quite heavy so make sure that your floor is going to be able to handle it.

If you follow the above recommendations you should be able to find the used fitness machine(s) you need. Once you have one in your home you will find that staying focused on your health and fitness is easier and more convenient.

If they have their own product, they should have sales periodically to give those with money problems a way to learn more.

2) Get Free Stuff! – Before subscribing to a health and fitness newsletter, you will probably be able to download something for free. For example, if you subscribe to my newsletter you’ll receive a free special report, just as a thank you. It’s a quick read but very informative. I also periodically give away free e-books that I find and/or create, just as a thank you for being a subscriber.
3) Constant Motivation – If you subscribe to a newsletter, it will most likely either be daily, weekly, monthly, or periodically. This means that you’ll receive an extra boost of motivation every few days which is a catalyst to succeeding in fitness.

In my newsletter I very openly describe what mistakes I’ve made and how my subscribers can stop themselves from doing the same. I’m not perfect and I don’t expect you to be either. Everybody makes mistakes. The great part is, they’re one of the best ways to learn!
5) You Can Learn “Insiders” Secrets – If a person has a health and fitness newsletter they should periodically give their subscribers pieces of information not on their website and not something that the majority of people would have any idea about.
