Staying fit and healthy has never been more important. With the worldwide health scare going on, it pays to invest in your physical health. This is why at Outbax, we provide high quality gym equipment for your home at very affordable prices.
If you are buying gym equipment for the first time, it is understandable to feel somewhat overwhelmed with all the options available. So, to help you out, here are a few things you need to keep in mind when buying gym equipment.
Is the gym equipment useful?
Take a look at photos of the equipment and ask yourself if it fits into your routine, budget, and if it will help you reach your wellness goals.
Am I motivated to use it?
Even if the equipment seems like something you might use, be realistic. For example, if you are not into activities such as dancing, a cardio-dance video might not be the right choice for you. If you know you will not use something, do not spend your money on it. Instead, find something that you will use or do exercises without equipment such as doing sit-ups to help strengthen the abdominal muscles.
Is the advertising full of promises such as spot reduction or weight loss?
If the ad focuses on promises or guarantees, it might be too good to be true. And most of the time, it is. Keep in mind that products are marketed to convince you to buy them and the seller doesn’t understand your goals. Reaching your goals is up to you and there’s no fast or guaranteed way to get healthier with one tool or piece of equipment. It takes hard work and usually other changes, for example eating healthy to reach your goals, not just using one product.
Do I know anyone who has that type of equipment? Talk to friends and family to get an honest opinion about exercise equipment or tools. This can help you decide what type of gym equipment to get.
Try the equipment out - IF possible.
Try the product before you buy it so you can see how it works and if you like it. You can sometimes borrow or rent equipment such as treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals before you buy it. Some places will even let you return equipment (if not damaged) after a short trial period. Otherwise, make sure the store you bought from offers a great warranty or returns policy.
Is this gear the right size?
If you’ve decided you want a certain machine or piece of equipment, make sure it’s the right size for you. Then you’ll be more likely to use it regularly. It’s a good idea to try equipment out a few times at a gym before you buy it.
Do I need the equipment or can I work the same muscles with other less expensive equipment?
Sometimes an ad can convince you that a piece of equipment is needed to target a certain group of muscles or body part. But, most of the time there are basic exercises or stretches you can do on your own without equipment. There are many exercises you can do instead of using equipment to reach your goals.
What’s best for me, my family, and my home?
Look at the space you have in your home for equipment. If you don’t have a lot of space, look for something smaller or more portable. Large items like treadmills and weight-lifting stations take up a lot of space compared to small items like exercise balls and bands.
Who will use the equipment?
If the machine is for more than one family member, make sure everyone can use it safely and that it’s right for everyone’s size, age, and fitness level. Remember, all fitness equipment needs to be maintained. Think about starting out with second-hand equipment to save some money. Over time, you can buy newer equipment if it’s being used regularly.
