What piece of gym equipment should I be buying in 2012?

Gym Equipment for 2012

Do you feel that you need to see more information on gym equipment,exercise equipment, the best treadmill or home gyms?

If there is one question I get asked more than “do you sell second hand treadmills?” then it the one on the top of the page.

By the way, I don’t.

Sell second hand treadmills that is, There should be a law against it, or perhaps there is?

Don’t buy second hand gym equipment; it will all end in tears.

That’s the away from motivators, now work on what you should be doing!

What do you want to achieve from a health club or item of fitness equipment?

Do you want to lose weight, get fitter, improve core stability, burn fat or build muscle?

Depending on your age, injury status and knowledge of exercise you would find different benefits from different gym equipment.

Bear in mind that the old attitude that cardio is the only way to burn fat was thrown out ages ago, with the baby, the bath water and the cheap Verimark gym equipment that nobody used.

Generally you should cross train and mix the cardio training up with some resistance training.

Good combinations of gym equipment would be

  • Multi gym and a treadmill
  • Dumbbells, adjustable bench and an elliptical trainer
  • Power Rack and a Waterrower or rowing machine

Buy good gym equipment

We all know that a cheap deal often turns out to be more expensive.

It’s a double impact in terms of gym equipment because for every day you don’t use it you get fatter and more unhealthy!

Cheap, fragile, weak, wobbly, unpleasant, yeauch. These are all words I have heard my clients use to describe some of the supermarket gym equipment.
