Used and refurbished exercise equipment can be a great way to invest in your health, while still saving as much money as possible. Used and refurbished exercise equipment can be just as good as new, for a fraction of the price.

Make Sure the Safety Features are Working

The most important features of any piece of exercise equipment are safety features. If you are having used and refurbished exercise equipment delivered, you will want to check the safety features immediately. These include things like safety keys and clips, cables on weight machines, bike pedal straps, and anything else that keeps the equipment working properly and safely.

Commercial vs Residential Grade

Used and refurbished exercise equipment may be commercial or residential grade. Some people choose to buy used and refurbished exercise equipment because they are able to get commercial grade exercise equipment, at a residential grade price. Commercial grade exercise equipment will perform better and last longer than its residential counterparts, however they usually come with a commercial grade price tag. Buying commercial grade used and refurbished exercise equipment is one of the best ways to build a home gym that is made to last, for a price you can afford.

Check the Warranty

Many times used and refurbished exercise equipment will come with a warranty. If you are deciding between several items or sellers, check the warranty to see if it helps you make a decision. Sometimes the warranty on used and refurbished exercise equipment is better than many places offer on new exercise equipment!

Is Working Out at the Gym Better than at Home?

Is working out at the gym better than at home? After all, even though new equipment is expensive, you can save money by buying used and refurbished exercise equipment. Let’s look at the pros and cons. 

What are the Downsides to Having a Home Gym? 

Having a home gym can take up a lot of space. If you don’t have a designated room, it may make your home feel less like a comfortable home and more like you’re living in the gym. Many people put their home gyms in their basement or garage to keep it out of the way, but this can add on an additional challenge of trying to keep your home gym the correct temperature. 

What are the Upsides to Having a Home Gym? 

Having your own home gym makes some people much more likely to work out since they don’t have to go anywhere to do so. You also don’t have to worry about other people using the equipment you want, or being around other sweaty people. You can wake up and work out, without having to worry about your appearance or the type of clothes you’re wearing. You can also use apps and workout videos to customize your workouts at home. You can even personalize your home gym, and put up artwork and images that are inspirational to you.
