Mistakes You’re Making When Buying Used & Refurbished Exercise Equipment

Purchasing used and refurbished exercise equipment is a great way to save money and get quality fitness gear that will help you get and stay in shape. Using a previously owned treadmill or stationary bike or other fitness equipment can also be a risky move if you wind up with subpar or damaged gear that will cause more problems than benefits.

What Questions Should I Ask Before Buying Used and Refurbished Exercise Equipment?

Before you purchase used and refurbished exercise equipment, there are some questions you should ask both yourself and the party that is selling you the gear. Ask yourself how much you spend, how often you will work out. and how many others will be using the equipment.

Questions you can ask the seller to make sure you are getting the right equipment includes:

  • How old is the equipment?
  • How much was the equipment previously used?
  • Does the original manual still exist?
  • Is there a warranty on the equipment or is one available?

Should I Buy Used Fitness Equipment from an Unverified Seller?

When possible, all used and refurbished exercise equipment should be purchased from a verified seller with a reliable reputation. In addition to feeling comfortable that the gear has been properly cared for and maintained, verified fitness equipment dealers can offer professional guidance and support in your decision-making process. They are also more likely to provide delivery options and payment plans than individual, unverified sellers.

How Can I Determine the True Condition of Used and Refurbished Exercise Equipment?

Looks can be deceiving, so it is important to make sure used and refurbished exercise equipment is in proper working condition before making a purchase. For example, if you are buying from an individual seller, ask if they have pets or children. Pet dander and sticky fingers can cause damage and impede the workings of some fitness equipment.
