Fitness Equipment Information


Your Health is Important Get Fit For Life


Choosing fitness equipment for your personal use can be a rather daunting task. You can't turn on the TV without seeing ads that promise or imply that if you buy their exercise product and use it for 10-20 minutes a day you will have a slimmer trimmer body. We all want to look better but be wary, check around, and see if you can find any test results on this product.

Before embarking on a fitness or exercise program check with your physician to be sure the program or equipment you are considering, is safe for you. Find out what the makers of a particular piece of fitness equipment claims it can do and check it out. There are web sites where you can find the results of testing, often these tests use several brands of say stationary bikes, for durability ease of use, and performance. Ask other users, a personal trainer or a coach at your local gym.

When you go out shopping for fitness equipment, wear comfortable shoes and clothing. Be sure to " take a test drive' on any piece of equipment that you are considering. Any retailer that refuses to let you try out a piece of equipment that you may want to buy, is not one you want to do business with.

There are questions you need to ask before purchasing any exercise equipment, Find out about warranty and return policies, and the cost and frequency of repairs. Also ask if there is a trial period, after which you can return the item for full store credit or refund. Reputable dealers of exercise and fitness equipment are generally willing to do this.

If you work long hours and you don't want the expense of a gym membership, you may be thinking about setting up a home gym. This can be confusing, which bike, treadmill or weight bench should you get? Do you have the space, What equipment will fit your budget? The American Council on Exercise suggests the following steps to help you make the right choice.

Identify Your Fitness Needs: Make sure that the activities you choose are enjoyable, or you are not likely to stick with it. Try to get equipment that increases resistance as you get stronger.

Determine your budget: The $99.00 treadmill from the discount store that falls apart in less than a year, is not a bargain. Shop around and compare prices, The cost range for a particular exercise device can span a wide price range, from store to store or web site to web site. Another possibility is to buy used equipment, but be cautious, only buy from authorized resale dealers. And get any warranty in writing.

Determine how much space is available: A treadmill requires at least 30sq. ft. A stationary bike, about10, and a Multi-station gym approximately 50-200 sq.ft. Examine the product: features, design, manufacture, safety, and serviceability. Make sure that while using the equipment, your body moves in a safe and correct manner.

Examine the product, make sure that features, design, manufacture and serviceability, Make sure that while using the equipment, your body moves in a safe and correct way, the equipment is comfortable, fits your size, and is not to difficult to learn.

Assess "bang for the buck" Is the equipment safe? Can you afford it? Is it adjustable? Durable? Does it fit the space you have allotted to it? Is there a warranty? And can you get parts. Does the company offer a service plan?

If money is really a problem, buy one good quality-training piece, like a treadmill then add inexpensive strength training equipment. Such as tubing, and bar bells, you can always add to your home gym later. Treadmills are very popular despite all the new equipment, with all the bells and whistles. They are great for a good cardiovascular workout.

Some reasons why you should at least consider a treadmill is: They can be used by people of all ages, they have handrails that can be used by those who have problems with balance, and you can choose to have either a low or high impact session. Most treadmills adjust for incline, which allows you to increase the intensity of your workout without increasing speed. No special training is needed if you can walk, you can use a treadmill.

Once you have decided to get a treadmill, there are some things you need to check, before handing over your credit card. First check the frame, it should be sturdy with no wobble. High alloy steel is better than aluminum, but is heavier and needs to be coated against rust; A welded frame is sturdier than a bolted one. And don't even consider one with a plastic frame. The handrails can be either on the sides or in front like handlebars. Just be sure they don't wobble or interfere with your arm swings. Check whether AC or DC powers the machine you are looking. Most homes use DC and AC will require a separate power line.

Speed ranges are important, and you definitely want one that can adjust to your comfort pace, either running or walking. The belt needs to be at least as long as your longest stride, and about 16 inches wide. Be sure that the incline adjustment is easy enough for you to do on your own. The more fancy bells and whistles on the control panel, the higher the cost, don't buy what you won't use. A well made quality treadmill will run you about $1,000 or more .Try to get a least a 2 year written guarantee on moving parts and 2 years on the frame.

There are all kinds of exercise and fitness equipment available besides treadmills, Stair climbers, stationary bikes, ski machines and free weights are just a few. Check consumer information Talk to people who use the equipment you are interested in, and research the benefits and drawbacks of items you want to purchase, You can also get good information from personal trainers and fitness coaches.

Used equipment can save you big bucks, but be cautious, only buy from reputable resale dealers, who will probably offer you a limited warranty. These dealers usually have all used equipment serviced and reconditioned, when possible.

The only way to get fit and stay that way is through, a program of proper nutrition and exercise. A fitness routine is like a marriage, if you aren't committed it won't work.
