健身房怎麽开?如何购置健身器材?

爱健身爱到想开健身房吗?开一间健身房或运动中心和其他健身爱好者分享自己的兴趣,或是帮助其他人变得更健康,是最棒的职业了!但就像经营其他类型的业务一样,开一间自己的健身房或运动中心并不是个容易的过程。从规划到建整,无论是经济上还是精神上,制定一个详细的计划是很重要的。

首先,要有远见

在您规划各种细节之前,首先要有一个愿景:您想要这间健身房有怎样的氛围、市场定位…?

每个健身房各有特色,也有很多不同类型的健身房,如小型健身工作室、专业健身体育馆、迎合老年人的健身房等。建议多了解地点周边住宅区的居民年龄层,来决定什么样的健身房对您来说是最好的选择。

寻找合适的地点

健身房或运动中心的地点一定要容易到达、位置明显且最好有停车场,这些元素都能让人多停留。想要做足准备,您还可以分析地点周遭的人口统计数据,包括平均年龄、收入、竞争对手等等。掌控大局,您越知道您能开什么样的健身房。

把法律工作交给专业人士

请律师可能是昂贵的,但这在创业初期时必不可少。法律文书工作都是关乎细节的,一名高水平的律师能帮您处理和浏览所有表格和归档文件,避免法律漏洞,某程度上来说反而还省了一笔费用。您必须先申请营业执照,资格和申请程序因地方而异,在美国,有时您还必须同时申请当地和州的营业执照。

大多数健身房业主也会投保公众责任保险,若有人在您的健身房受伤或财产受损,而属健身房过失,该保险可以依照保单条款涵盖赔偿费用与法律费用。

筹备资金、估算成本

开一间健身房的总费用相当高昂,很多人手里根本没有那麽多现金。您可以邀请投资者为您提供资金,或是到银行贷款。务必拟定一个详细的商业计划,更快速得赚取利润。

筹备资金时也须适当估算成本,健身器材除了本身的器材费用,您还要考虑以下三点来估算真正的健身器材成本:

1) 转售价值

健身器材需要定期更新,要么是将旧器材转售;要么在必要时除旧换新。无论是哪种方式,转售价值都会大大影响您的盈利。

2) 器材保养

许多健身房业主在计算成本时,很容易忽略器材的维护成本。长远来看,需要维护的频率越少,相对的您需要的新设备就越少。必要时,可以考虑以静态器材(如可调式训练椅和哑铃放置架)取代电子器材(如跑步机和阶梯机),因为这些电子器材日后需要较多保养成本。

3) 器材尺寸

举例而言,多功能训练站很棒,但这些器材会占用很多空间,在做空间规划时,务必考虑到”器材尺寸:使用价值”比。

为您的健身房购置健身器材

在比较不同类型的健身运动器材时,您应该已经有一个清楚的概念,您知道您想要的健身器材有哪些。当然,这些也取决于您想要吸引什么样的会员。

如果您想营造一个以专业健身为主的运动氛围,您会需要深蹲练习架、重量训练架、哑铃、槓铃…等;如果您想做的更像是健身俱乐部,您可能会需要椭圆训练机(elliptical machine)、功能训练机(functional trainer)、跑步机和壶铃…。

除此之外,您可以选择新器材或二手器材。新器材非常昂贵,但若您的健身房地点选在高端住宅区,这也许可行,因为会员们负担得起更高的会员费;您也可以租用健身房器材,但最大缺点就是,您永远不可能完全拥有租的器材,永远有一笔支出租金的费用。二手健身器材相对较便宜,商用级健身器材经过维修、清洁,甚至翻新后就像新品一样可以持续使用,您不只实际拥有这些健身器材,我们还能为您的健身房客製健身器材组。

大多数健身房确实提供组合器材,但这通常取决于业主想吸引的会员类型,以及该地方的可用空间大小。

还记得我们刚刚提到的”器材尺寸:使用价值”比吗?

我们假设一台功能训练机批发价2,300美元,一个拥有20位以上会员的健身房会需要两台功能训练机,大约是20平方英尺耗资4,600美元。

一套五个哑铃加上支架,假设花费320美元,您可能也需要两套。

两架的哑铃会比两台功能训练机占地多一些,但同时只有一人可以使用功能训练机,却有五个人可以使用哑铃训练。因此,我们可以说哑铃不只价格相对便宜,也拥有较高的使用价值,它们一次可以为多位会员提供服务,再加上维护起来也较便宜。

要能准确批发大量器材,又要兼具实用性时,时刻考虑”器材尺寸:使用价值”比。

如何辨别器材水平

在决定购买何种批发健身器材上有许多主观因素,健身器材水平则是很客观的,几分钱、几分货!

在比较批发健身器材时,价格是第一个最重要的考虑因素,事实上,您的确可以当作一个比较点,因为健身器材有别于葡萄酒或食品,价格的不同代表的是其所用的材料、制造技术等,例如使用的是钢或塑料,是螺栓或焊接。

还有很重要的一点,切勿将专业的健身器材与家用健身器材相比!

个人在打造家庭健身环境时,他们和专业健身房业者关心的地方不同。零售商知道这些家用健身器材业者需要经常移动器材,所以他们会以”轻器材”作为亮点。但这不是专业健身房业者着重的,轻器材对他们来说可能重量不足。

家用健身环境正常只有一人使用家里的健身器材,因此,他们更需要选择多功能、高使用价值的器材如交叉训练机和功能训练机。同样地,这未必是专业健身房业者的最佳选择。

有时不要被品牌名称左右您的决定,有些品牌为了迎合零售市场,他们的目标是寻找家用健身者。专业健身器材业没那么知名,是因为他们针对的是健身房业主,而非大众主流。仅仅因为用户不熟悉品牌,并不意味着该品牌是劣等的。

雇佣专业的健身教练

毫无疑问,优秀的教练是健身房的最大亮点。许多会员愿意付钱买服务,优秀的教练能让会员不断回到您的健身房。健身教练不仅指导锻炼,也能帮助会员改变饮食习惯和给予健身动机。确保您的健身教练受过认证,并有良好的业绩记录和正面的客户反馈。

以上只是在开健身房时应该考虑的几个要点,还有无数的小细节需要注意,若您担心有考虑不周的地方,需要正确的协助,欢迎联繫我们的专家,做全方位的谘询。

购买二手健身器材要注意什么?为什么要选择Primo Fitness?

当您在预算有限的情况下要经营一间健身房或健身中心,购买二手健身器材是一个好选择,这不像服饰或生活用品,二手健身器材不表示劣质品,只要经过适当翻新,二手健身器材也可以像新品一样运作。

在购买之前有什么小窍门呢?

  1. 了解您有哪些选择

服务如“翻新”、“改制”、“原样”、“维修和清洁”、“转手”、“ 展示样品”等等,对买方来说,了解您有哪些服务是很重要的。在洽询过程中,务必像销售人员询问清楚。有些二手健身器材已经换了新零件;有些设备只是经过清洁和测试,以拥有应有的功能;有些设备是在原样条件下出售。

  1. 研究品牌、型号

长久以来的经验是,购买知名品牌长期下来通常能节省更多钱。曾经有一位购买家用健身器材用户和我分享,他购买一家不知名品牌的”全新”跑步机,以相当便宜的价格购入。使用后立刻发现到框架是多么地脆弱,每当动作时,都能听到器材在哀号。他还差点在跑步时跌倒,因为跑带很滑,但后来发现是因为马达出了问题。由此可见,若以接近价格购买一台知名品牌的二手跑步机,使用寿命能更久,似乎是更划算的。知名品牌往往能够符合您的期待。

  1. 购买前一定要试用

不要因为价格就仓促购买。您一定要试用您想买的器材,且不只一遍。销售员不应该阻止您试跑您感兴趣的跑步机,或是不让您触碰操控面板,您一定要亲身确保它们正常运作。既然投资了金钱,就要避免器材在几个月内无法使用的情况。

购买时,需要如何确切检查器材?

以下是最受欢迎的两大器材:跑步机和椭圆交叉训练机,大家可以运用相同逻辑检查所有健身器材。

跑步机(Treadmill)

首先,让我们来注意跑步机的跑带。

我们可以很自信地说:Primo Fitness用的跑带是最高品质且是美国制造的。然而,许多公司是从国外进口便宜的,甚至重新粉刷的旧跑带。想知道是不是高品质的跑带,关键在跑带背面的制造商标志。劣质的跑带会对您的马达产生过度的压力,我们会更换每个马达上的每个轴承、支座。有些不良业者也会直接将跑板翻面继续使用,这么做会破坏跑板的弹性,用不久后便会开始出现问题。我们不这么做,所有我们翻新的跑步机都有全新的跑板。

在与销售人员接洽时,可以试问以下问题:跑带是新的吗?在哪里制造?多少钱?一般来说,质量好的跑带约要250美元以上。

再来是跑步机的滚筒承轴。我们使用全新滚筒承轴,确保使用者在使用时不会发出嘎嘎的器械噪音,确保流畅、平滑度,以及滚筒的用电量效率。跑步机经常被忽视的零件还有张力滑轮和传动装置,我们一样更换张力滑轮的轴承和全新的驱动器。

接着来看看斜坡功能,改制的跑步机在这方面应该要完全通过测试,并回归到工厂规格。现在让我们看一下显示屏,有时又称为下板或PCB板,故障的跑带或马达可能会影响这个昂贵的零件。我们的显示屏都是经过工厂培训的技术人员精心测试后,确保器材合乎工厂规格。许多公司使用抛光打蜡来掩盖这些缺陷。翻新后的跑步机应该要有一个新的操作面板,操作面板的下方有一层薄膜,这层薄膜是(一个输入组件)告诉底下的电子面板要做哪些反应。适当翻新后的跑步机应该也要有一層新的薄膜。

椭圆交叉训练器(Elliptical Crosstrainer)

不是我自夸,Primo Fitness更换和翻新的零件比其他业者都要来得多。我们将每台器材的每个框架都去绣并重新上漆,许多人只是重新粉刷,叠附在旧的涂层上。我们更换器材上的所有轴套和所有轴承,我相信很多人也只是重新清洁并继续使用,因为这是一项大工程。所有的跑带和交替带都是使用原厂皮带做更换。每台器材也有全新的操作面板,让整体外观看起来更一致。

以下是您在购买椭圆交叉训练机时应该注意到的部分:

  1. 器材应该要全新粉刷
  2. 全新的轴套和轴承
  3. 原厂翻新的输送跑带和交替带
  4. 原厂替换的输送跑带和交替带
  5. 全新操作面板

我们位在加利福尼亚的展示仓库拥有各式各样的健身器材,欢迎线上与我们联系或亲自检查我们各种二手和全新的健身器材。我们很乐意提供建议给需要帮助的您,Primo Fitness的销售人员拥有专业的器材和健身知识,能从使用者的角度出发,协助您选择合适的器材。我们能送货到世界各地,欢迎国际经销商、批发商和健身房业者与我们联系,搜索最好的价格和服务。现在就向我们发电子邮件[email protected],或拨打电话给我们(714)955-2565,我们将提供您最优质的服务!  Can you add Wechat ID as a contact info please?

购买批发二手健身器材的注意事项

假如您是第一次在茫茫大海中选购二手健身器材,您可能不太清楚该从哪里开始或如何开始,这是件很正常的事,这也是为什麽您需要一名健身器材专家的协助。

究竟您的健身场地需要哪些器材?您应该去哪裡找到这些器材?价格多少?二手健身器材值得买吗?

我们知道您有许多疑问,而我们能给予您专业的回答!

Used Fitness Equipment International

以下是购买批发二手健身器材的五大注意事项:

一、了解二手健身器材3种状态条件

想要购买二手健身器材,器材的状态条件有三种:原样、维修和清洁以及翻新。

它们的定价是非常不同的:最实惠、最便宜的是保持原样,也就是说,您买的器材是直接热腾腾地从仓库出炉。如果您想要加上一些服务,那么可以选择维修和清洁后的器材,二手设备可能会有一些配件磨损得较厉害,这部份建议您更换所有严重磨损的部分,为器材延长寿命。但是,假设您想要一台全新的器材的话,没问题,您可以选择重新翻新。翻新的器材基本上就是重建,操作上和感官上就像全新的一样─从机械零件到器材整体的涂漆。依据经销商的不同,质量可以有很大的不同。

我们的健身器材专家拥有超过40年收购和销售二手健身器材的经验,所有的原样健身器材都经过我们技术团队在功能上的测试。我们也是翻新器材方面的专家,客户对我们的工作品质有热烈的迴响。我们全程只使用OEM(器材原始制造商)的替换零件来进行翻新,我们的技术人员不只受过认证,并有数十年的实务经验,可以让您的旧器材重新恢復生命力!

二、熟悉不同类型的器材、功能和品牌

了解不同类型的健身器材,对您的选择上绝对有帮助,毕竟您不会想要买个没人感兴趣的器材,对吧?跑步机、椭圆机、健身车(直立、卧式)和重量训练器材(自由重量、槓片加重、重量选择)。

那麽器材上的一些重要功能呢?有什麽功能?我应该要知道吗?好问题!

跑步机、椭圆机和健身车…等各种有氧器材有很多标准功能,如心率监测;根据您的重量不同,有多种阻力或槓片选择;斜度或下降程度…等等。能够站在会员的角度想,实际测试原样器材,这一点很重要,检查一下基本功能是否正常运作。一些受欢迎的健身品牌不是没有原因的,知名品牌通常实至名归。

三、内心有明确的预算和需求

假如您正在寻找一些批发二手或全新健身器材的建议,在脑海中已经有一个明确的预算,那么您在抉择时,更能缩小选择范围,找到您想要的器材。这些器材类型不仅符合您的预算,而且是您的需要。我们的健身器材专家在协助您的过程中,除了给予专业的建议外,还会帮您找到符合或低于您的预算的健身器材,这是我们对您的承诺。

四、购买二手健身器材可以节省很多时间和金钱

从过去客户的反馈中,我们了解,大家在购买“二手商品”时都带有怀疑,在这裡让我们打破这项迷思,至少对于健身器材是这样。购买任何一件全新的健身器材都很贵、非常贵!然而,购买二手健身器材的最大好处之一就是节省巨额资金。即使您决定翻新一台器材,对您而言,最终成本将远低于您购买一台崭新的器材。我们愿您能从每一美元中得到最大的价值。

五、器材经销商值得信赖并享有高度信誉

有这么多公司销售二手健身器材,您要如何选择一个合作伙伴?您怎么知道最终是否能获得您要的?您要如何避免花上大把血汗钱,结果买到无法长期运作的器材?

首先,您能做的预防措施是,确定您的合作对象、公司是合法的,并拥有优良的信誉。

 

我们PrimoFitnessUSA欢迎所有客户来到我们的仓库,让您亲自浏览、选择和测试所有的器材。我们甚至有健身器材专业人员带领您走过维修和清洁过程中的每一个步骤,或者如果您想知道的话,翻新过程也将不私藏地与您分享。我们在健身器材产业拥有超过40年的经验,我们对我们的专长和知识相当有信心,每一次的展示机会对我们来说都是很宝贵的。

假如您已经拥有专业的健身器材知识,只是希望第一次购买时有人给予专业建议,那么让我们知道我们能够提供什么帮助!前往我们的网站,浏览我们广受欢迎的二手跑步机、二手椭圆机、二手健行车…。别让我们错过帮助您的机会!欢迎致电我们1-765-460-6FIT(348),我们将尽力提供您各种服务,帮助您找到理想中的健身器材!

Is a Recumbent Exercise Bike Best for You?

Life Fitness 95Ci Upright & 95Ri Recumbent Bike

When you go shopping for a stationary bike for your workout, you will realize that there are two main types of stationary bikes: recumbent bikes and upright bikes. Although both bikes are effective when it comes to reducing weight and improving cardio, there are several differences that make recumbent bikes the better alternative for most people. If you are shopping for a stationary bike; below is a rundown of benefits that makes recumbent bikes the best choice for you.
 

Recumbent Bikes are Safer

Other than offering a back support, recumbent bikes also come with a larger seat than upright bikes. Besides, these kikes are much lower to the ground compared to the upright ones. This makes it easier for anyone, including the elderly, to get on and off. In a nutshell, a recumbent exercise bike for sale is much safer for workouts than upright bikes.

Recumbent Bikes Offer More Comfort

Upright bikes have smaller seats, and it is not uncommon to hear users complain about pain in the in the buttocks. Furthermore, upright backs may cause users to experience stained or tired backs due to the lack of back support. On the other hand, recumbent bikes eliminate these challenges. They have a larger seat and backrest making them more comfortable. Furthermore, they place less strain on the knees and the hips, making them perfect even for the elderly and people suffering from arthritis and other similar problems.

Recumbent Bikes Target More Muscles

Not only are recumbent bikes more comfortable and safer, they are also more effective when it comes to working out. When riding a recumbent bike or an upright bike, you can build muscles in your lower legs and thighs. However, the two targets the muscles differently, and indeed, with a recumbent bike, you can target more muscles. In a nutshell, using a recumbent bike and peddling the normal bike outside can be a great way of ensuring that you are targeting all the muscles in your legs. In a nutshell, compared to an upright bike, a recumbent bike is a more effective piece of workout equipment.

Recumbent Bike will extend your Workout

Recumbent bikes are generally easier to use and more comfortable compared to upright bikes. This implies that when you choose to be using a recumbent bike, you are more likely going to stick to your workout routine. You are also more likely going to work out for much longer than when you are using an upright bike. After all, it is unlikely that you are going to continue peddling if you are experiencing pain in the butt and back. In such a case, you will also not want to jump on your upright bike the following day or later in the week. Thus, the fact that recumbent bikes are pain-free and comfortable means that when you are using one, you will more likely be willing to push yourself farther and stick to your workout routine.

The Takeaway

Overall, it is apparent that although both upright and recumbent bikes can help you build muscles, recumbent several features that make them a better option. For instance, they target more muscles and they are more comfortable. They are also safer and they can be used by both the experienced and the amateurs. Thus, if you are shopping for a safe, comfortable, pain-free and effective stationary bike; a recumbent bike is the best choice for you.

What Is the Difference Between a Stepper and a Stepmill?

 

The Stepper and Stepmill were both introduced to the world by the StairMaster company, they both allow you to mimic walking up steps, they both are cardio machines that workout your lower half including the quadriceps, buttocks and hamstrings, but they have different names because they ARE different.

Differences

There is a difference in price. The Stepmill is typically more expensive than a Stepper due to its more intensive construction. A Stepper has two pedals that move downward in alternating fashion when you place your feet on them. The Stepmill has a staircase that collapses in a downward motion as you walk up on it. A Stepmill covers more space than a Stepper. That is one of the reasons why you tend to see more Steppers than a Stepmill at gyms. I’ve seen Steppers at people’s homes, but never a Stepmill.  With a Stepper you are involved in repetitive motion, while with the Stepmill you can walk up the staircase going forward, backward or sideways.

Tips for Buying Used Fitness Equipment

used gym equipment dealer warehouse

Buying used fitness equipment can be a great way to save money when you are building your home gym on a limited budget. With the high retail prices that fitness equipment is going for nowadays, you can save lots of money by buying used cardio and strength equipment. As with everything else that you purchase, make sure to do your due diligence when buying used fitness equipment.

Understanding the Terminology

With so much jargon used to describe fitness equipment such as “refurbished,” “remanufactured,” “as is,” “serviced and cleaned,” “pre-owned,” “demo,” “reconditioned” and more, it is important for the buyer to understand what the terms mean. It is your responsibility to ask the salesperson exactly what those words mean. Some used fitness equipment have had parts exchanged for new ones, some equipment have simply been cleaned and tested for proper function, and others are sold in the same condition they were acquired.

Research the Brand, Model, and Seller

Purchasing name brands will generally save you more money in the long run. I once purchased a new treadmill for a really cheap price from a rather unknown brand. I immediately noticed how fragile the frame was; I could hear it creek whenever I moved it around. I remember almost falling on my face while running on it because the belt felt like it was slipping, but later I found out it was the motor that was giving out. Now I know that I could have spent roughly around the same amount of money on a used quality name brand treadmill and still have it working to this day. Reputation of a brand goes a long way when purchasing something that you expect to be durable. Finding a reputable seller is also essential when shopping for fitness equipment. Go on review websites like Yelp to get a sense of what you will expect from the seller in terms of the quality of the equipment they sell and their prices..

Try Before You Buy

Avoid purchasing something just because you believe you are getting a good deal. You should always try out the equipment that you are buying. The salesperson should not be able stop you from getting on the treadmill you are interested in purchasing, walking on it and pushing all the buttons to make sure they work. It is your duty to make sure you are investing your money in something that will not end up unusable in a couple of months. If you are looking for longevity and durability, then a commercial grade fitness machine would be perfect for the rigorous day to day use that it was created for.

What are the different types of exercise bikes?

Exercise Bikes

Exercise bikes come in many different forms and have different benefits.

An exercise bike is a versatile cardio machine that makes a great first choice for a home gym. It offers several benefits, such as affordable cost, limited space usage, and multitasking capability. Exercise bikes generally fall under three groups: upright bikes, recumbent bikes and indoor cycles. It’s important to take into account what each exercise bike offers before deciding on one.

Upright Bikes

Out of the three main types of exercise bike, the upright bike most resembles riding a classic bicycle. The pedals are aligned under the user’s feet, while the seat supports the user’s weight. In addition to cardio and lower body, some upright bikes engage the core and upper body muscles. The user’s core must keep the body upright, while arms are engaged with special moving handlebars. Upright bikes do tend to leave their users with soreness on the rear and back. They typically have the smallest footprint thanks to their minimal design, and are easier to transport. Some models come with customizations such as TV’s that require electricity. Popular models include the Life Fitness Integrity and Precor 846i Experience upright bikes.

Recumbent Bikes

The recumbent bike’s main trait is its recline design. The seat is more of a chair that allows the user to lean back comfortably, and its pedals are in front of the user’s feet instead of below.  This type of fitness bike gives the rider the most support. Handlebars are also at the sides instead of the front. This design helps reduce stress on joints. Like upright bikes, recumbent bikes can be outfitted with extra features such as monitors and TV’s. Recumbent bikes usually offer the lowest intensity workout and fewest engaged muscle groups, but are the most helpful for those with back/knee problems or recovering from injury. The Technogym 700 Excite and Life Fitness 95R Inspire recumbent bikes are examples of this type.

Indoor Cycles

Indoor cycles are somewhat similar to upright bikes, but with a few differences. Their handlebars are farther away from the seat, shifting riders forward. Indoor cycles even allow users to stand while cycling, engaging more muscle groups in the process. As a result, indoor cycles tend to promote the most calorie burn from all the exercise bikes. Indoor cycles usually lack certain features such as heart monitors. This does allow indoor cycles to run without electricity. Gyms and fitness clubs frequently use indoor cycles in spin cycle classes, such as the Keiser M3+ and Star Trac Spinner Blade.

Fan or Air Bike

Another category of exercise bike is the fan or air bike. Some classify this type as an upright bike or indoor cycle, but it’s unique design deserves a classification of its own. It works with wind resistance; the harder you pedal, the harder the resistance. This type is the only style that has moveable arms. Upper and lower body workouts can be done independently or simultaneously. Examples of this type are the Schwinn Airdyne and Star Trac Turbo Trainer.

Which Exercise Bike is Best for You?

Ultimately, the best exercise bike is the one that you most enjoy using. Having fun while using your bike will make it more likely you use it and improve your fitness. At Primo Fitness, we carry all types of these exercise bikes in our warehouse! We encourage you to try our bikes for yourself; our sales team can help in picking the best one to fit your budget and goals.

Top 5 Reasons Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

New Year's Resolutions List

This New Year give yourself the gift of fitness and a healthier you!

New Year’s Resolutions are always trending at the start of a new year. Improved health is usually one of the primary categories these fall under. Better health resolutions can include losing weight, eating better, or dropping a bad habit. However, people typically have not been so good at keeping them, with over 80% failing. To succeed against such odds, it’s important to understand why New Year’s Resolutions fail in the first place.

1. Unclear goals

New Year’s Resolutions are often created rather vaguely. If a resolution is too basic such as losing weight, then it will likely fail with little way to measure progress. Framing a goal with defined markers of time and progress is a great first step in making a resolution. Losing 10 pounds in a month is a good example. It provides a goal that is measureable yet not unrealistic. A specific and attainable resolution makes it easier to focus your efforts.

2. Lack of strategy

It’s easy to fantasize when our goals are achieved, but it’s much harder to put a process in place to accomplish them. For losing 10 pounds in a month, strategies could include going to the gym 3 times a week, or limiting desserts to once a week. Again, a clear plan can guide how you make a resolution become reality.

3. Giving up too early

Failures will happen along the way. Too often however, people will use a setback as an excuse to give up entirely. Missing a day in your resolution’s timetable just calls for greater dedication. It’s okay if you don’t quite meet a certain goal your resolution calls for. Even if you didn’t quite lose 10 pounds in a month, it is worth celebrating those seven you did lose. Standards are meant to be bars to aim for, not restraints to prevent us from our goals.

4. No accountability

If you’re the only one holding yourself accountable, chances are you won’t get far on your resolutions. Instead, try including an accountability partner. A partner can call you out when you’re slacking, encourage when you’re struggling, or even tag along your workout and get reps in.

5. Lacking the means to meet New Year’s Resolutions

If your New Year’s Resolutions aren’t taking off due to lacking proper equipment, we can help with that! Our fitness equipment is durable and affordable. Whether it’s strength or cardio you’re after, we’ll have the right machine for your goals.

How much does it cost to open a gym?

One of the first steps when considering opening a gym is figuring out if it is financially feasible for you. No matter how good intentioned your gym may be, it will not function if it is not making money. Like opening any other business, opening a gym does take a large amount of capital to begin and there are plenty of monthly expenses to consider.

Although the cost of opening a gym varies greatly, you can estimate to spend between $10,000 for a personal training studio to $50,000 for a fully equipped commercial gym on equipment alone.

DSC_0353

While it is nearly impossible to give a ballpark estimate that will encompass all types of gyms, we can give a general figure on the cost of each component. We will give you actual numbers instead of vague words so you can begin to put together your business plan. We hope this guide can help you figure out how much opening a gym will cost you and help you decide if this is a path you wish to pursue.

Rent:

This will be the bulk of your operation costs and varies significantly depending on size and most importantly location. Location will be one of the largest cost factors and can even vary widely within cities.

The most important factor is determining whether your location will get enough foot traffic for the cost. Street visibility is important if you do not plan on spending a ton on marketing but it will cost you much more in terms of rent per month. It is also important to take note of the businesses in the surrounding area to help determine if you can siphon some of their customers. For example, being located next to a health food market may attract more customers than being adjacent to an industrial warehouse. Just for a numerical comparison, a 2,000 sq ft space is estimated to cost $6,000 a month in rent in Los Angeles.

DSC_0413

Equipment:

This is definitely our favorite topic. We know you’re tired of hearing “it varies” by now, but this is absolutely true. First, you have to determine what type of gym you are. Will you be focusing on free weights, crossfit, a standard cardio and selectorized cardio machine set-up or something entirely unique? We have written various blog posts to help determine which type of equipment you should get. A small personal training studio, let’s say around 1,500 sq ft, can be properly equipped with around $10,000 worth of equipment. You can easily fit around four treadmills, 2 ellipticals, a dual adjustable functional trainer, racks, dumbbells, and other various strength machines in that amount of space. Commercial gyms usually average around 3,000 to 4,000 sq ft and equipment will run you around $30,000 to $50,000.

Employees:

Although it does depend on the size, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to run a gym without any employees. Minimum wage varies from state to state, but if you’re going to hire the top trainers that will bring in and retain clients, you will need to pay them a little more. Generally their salaries range around the $25 an hour mark so you can estimate your costs based on your number of trainers from there. You will also need to hire an accountant, maintenance workers, a marketing person/team and the services of a lawyer.

Licenses/Permits:

The only major license you need as a gym owner is a business license. The cost varies based upon how many employees you have but you should not expect to spend more than a few hundred. Your trainers for your gym will have to be licensed and certified though which also has some costs associated. If you hire already licensed trainers you will be good to go.

Legal Fees:

It is highly recommended that anyone opening any type of business, but especially a gym, should consult and hire a lawyer. Gyms deal with a large amount of traffic everyday and legal issues are bound to arise so having a lawyer is important for protection. Gyms are also prone to injuries on-site so insurance is a necessity. To avoid further legal issues, putting a clause in the membership contract that prevents them for suing for self-caused injuries is a great idea.

Software:

There is an entire market out there with dedicated gym management software. Most gym management software is on a subscription basis so you will have to factor that into your monthly budget. Prices can vary from $100 a month to $1,000 depending on how in-depth you would like your system to be.

Conclusion: 

These will be your major costs when opening a gym so it is important to take each one of these factors into account when formulating your business plan. Luckily, we have representatives who have gone through the entire process and opened gyms for themselves and for our customers. Contact us at our gym packages page for free consultation to help you get started on opening your gym.

What exercise machine is Adele using?

If you’ve seen this now famously viral image of Adele using a piece of gym equipment, you’re probably wondering what machine it is. The fitness machine that Adele is using is the FreeMotion Dual Cable Cross Machine. Whether it’s part of her New Year’s Resolution or just her getting ready for her tour, it’s great to see Adele taking fitness seriously, even if she does look miserable.

Now you’re probably wondering what this machine does and why the great Adele would be using one. Luckily, we’re fitness equipment professionals so we’ll break down why Adele is using this piece of equipment.

  1. The cable crossover is ridiculously versatile

While most other strength machines only target one or two muscle groups, the cable crossover machine can work out any muscle group. It does not have a fixed path of motion so users can get really creative and execute a variety of exercises to target different muscles. This is why we also recommend this machine for home gyms with limited space since you can basically do anything that a strength machine can do.

  1. It’s time efficient

Adele is a very busy person so she can’t be wasting time running to different machines. Since the cable crossover is so flexible when it comes to exercises, she can easily perform an entire strength routine without switching machines. The Freemotion Cable Crossover that she is specifically using is selectorized so she can easily adjust the amount of weights just by pulling the pin. She can do bicep curls, tricep extensions, lat pull downs and much more. It also reduces rest time between exercises so it also increases intensity.

  1. It allows you to train natural movements

Other strength machines have a fixed path of motion which is great if you’re targeting a specific group of muscles. If you’re looking for function training though, performing motions that you use in your daily life on the cable crossover can help make your entire life easier. Since you can determine your own range of motion on this machine, you can tailor it to activities and motions that you normally do every day.

If you want to work out just like Adele, you can contact us at 714-957-2765 or email us at [email protected] and ask for our cable crossover machines. We offer shipping worldwide!

Last Minute Christmas Fitness Gift Ideas

You’re scrambling for that last minute gift for your favorite fitness fanatic but you can’t find anything in the stores. You can’t buy equipment at a retail store because you know that Christmas gifts are meant to be enjoyed on Christmas. It’s no fun unwrapping a box with a treadmill in it and not being able to use it. Why put your dearest friend through the torture of having to install a complicated piece of gym equipment? We give you a list of some fitness equipment that you can just come by, pick up and deliver it to your recipient right in time for the holidays.

DSC_0105

  1. Indoor Cycles/Spin Bikes

Indoor cycles are the most portable commercial grade fitness equipment you’ll find on the market. Unlike the retail stores, all of our equipment is fully assembled and ready to go. This is how we’re able to allow customers to test out the exact machine that they can purchase. If you’re worried that a fully assembled exercise equipment unit won’t fit in your car, it is not a problem at all with the compact spin bike. We were even able to load one into a Mini Cooper.

Indoor cycles are also relatively inexpensive compared to other fitness equipment. A fully functional commercial grade model starts at $300 in our warehouse. We have a wide variety of brands ranging from Keiser, Matrix, Lemond, Schwinn and more.

DSC_5717

  1. Benches

These aren’t the benches you sit on while feeding birds at the park, these are heavy duty benches built to withstand a ton of punishment during a workout. Since most home gyms don’t have enough space for a full strength circuit, most exercisers will opt to use dumbbells and barbells for strength training. In order to properly execute these exercises, they’ll need a bench to work out on. Even power racks and cages benefit from being paired with a bench.

There are many different types of weight benches but the one we recommend most for its versatility is the adjustable (sometimes called 0-90) bench. Adjustable benches can be used as a flat bench, decline bench or an incline bench to assist in a wide array of exercises. There are fitness benches in every gym across the world so it would be a great gift for someone starting off their home gym.

20141212_085341

  1. Steppers (Stairstepper)

While they can be quite tall, most steppers don’t take up much space footprint wise so they can be a great gift/addition to someone’s home gym. Treadmills are generally the preferred choice for cardio machines, but steppers are great in their own way. They are low impact so they won’t put a considerable strain on your knees and joints. They’re also great for toning and strengthening the lower body.

They’re also extremely effective at burning calories because, if you don’t use the rail support, you’re lifting your entire body weight with every step you take. Steppers are also fairly simple to use and everyone is familiar with climbing stairs so there is no learning curve to worry about.

If you’re looking for the perfect last minute gift for a fitness fanatic you cannot go wrong with the options we’ve listed above. These are all affordable commercial grade machines that can easily fit into even the smallest of home gyms. We hope you have a happy holidays!

Exercise Equipment Gift Guide Part 2

For the creative exerciser

 DSC_6225

If you have a friend who is always looking for the latest fitness trend and trying some next level exercises, the Precor AMT 885 with Open Stride technology would be the perfect gift for them. It’s never the same workout twice with the versatility of the AMT machines.

While the previous iterations of the Precor AMT (including the 100i and 835) were already extremely versatile, the Open Stride technology in the 885 takes this customizability to another level. The Precor AMT 885 is a low impact machine so it’s not going to put a beating on the user’s knees. Even though it’s low impact, it’ll still burn a ridiculous amount of calories. The built-in programming options allow users of all levels to be able to personalize their workouts to keep them challenged and engaged.

The main draw of this newer model of AMTs is the Open Stride. Exercisers can go from short to long strides, walking to jogging to running, climbing and lunging and even to using it as a stepper. There is no button to press or complicated menus to go through in order to change your stride, the machine adapts to your new movements instantly. Most AMTs also come equipped with the full touchscreen P80 consoles. These consoles will display a Stride Dial which helps the user see their stride and determine which muscle group they’re targeting.

The AMT 885 also comes with movable handlebars so the user will experience a fully body workout. These handlebars are also adjustable so they can be gripped comfortably by exercisers of any size. If you have that one friend who constantly seeks new ways to get fit, you can’t go wrong gifting them a Precor AMT 885 Elliptical Crosstrainer.

Holiday Gym Equipment Gift Guide

There is no greater gift than the gift of health and fitness. Unfortunately, being healthy and fit isn’t a tangible object that can be neatly wrapped up with a bow so the next best thing is gifting someone some quality gym equipment. If you’re new to the world of exercise equipment, finding the perfect gift can be difficult. There are so many models that cater to different exercisers so we’re here to help sort it all out. This is our fitness equipment holiday gift guide!

For the person with limited space:

Not every person has a giant garage to set up a full gym, but there are still many options for the fitness fanatic stuck in a small space. While most commercial grade models are built larger than retail models to increase durability, some companies still create high quality equipment with smaller footprints. On the cardio side, there are two clear options for equipment that can be easily squeezed into a crowded or smaller area.

DSC_6987

Indoor Cycles/Spin Bikes:

We have an in-depth article explaining how to choose the best indoor cycle for your goals. When it comes to both footprint and height, indoor cycles will easily be your most compact option among commercial grade cardio machines. They’re normally a little shorter than four feet tall, around four feet in length and a little over two feet in width. Most of the indoor cycles and spin bikes on the market right now are roughly the same size so you should be safe buying from any of the well known brands such as Star Trac, Keiser, Schwinn or Matrix. Another flip side of purchasing an indoor cycle is that it is the most cost effective commercial gym equipment you’ll find, especially if you buy used. Some of our least expensive models start at only $300 for a bike in guaranteed working condition.

DSC_6501

Cybex Treadmills:

Cybex treadmills are our go-to recommendations for many home gyms because of their compact frame. Our two favorite models that we recommend are the Cybex 550T treadmills and the Cybex 530T treadmills. These have all the standard features that you’d expect from a commercial treadmill (durability, smoothness, fitness tracking, etc.) without the bulky size.

For the tech geeks:

Fitness tracking and electronic read-outs such as calories burned, speed, distance run, etc. have been embedded in cardio machines for over a decade now, but recent advances have pushed gym equipment toward becoming computers that you can work out on. If you need to get a gift for someone who loves technology and exercise, we have some great gift options available.

DSC_6225

Precor 885 series with P80 consoles:

The 885 series is the latest addition to Precor’s impressive cardio line. These cardio machines look quite futuristic with their sleek lines and stylish frame. The shining star of these machines and what will get the tech geeks excited as the P80 consoles that come with them.

We previously compared all the Precor consoles and the P80 is hands down the most advanced. It is a 15” LCD capacitive touch screen console with motion controls. It has advanced electronic readouts for all your complicated fitness tracking needs in both metric and US standard units. It also comes with a variety of different language options. New to this model of consoles is that it is Preva Network Capable. It can connect online for a wide range of different entertainment options. Like the previous models, you can also connect a television with cable.

This is only the first part of our holiday gift guide. Stay tuned for more!

Precor AMT 100i Elliptical Crosstrainer

Normally we sell these versatile elliptical for this price in as-is condition but as part of our Black Friday special, we’ll service and clean it on the house.

We also open up the units and inspect for worn out parts and replace them. They will not squeak or make noises after they have been serviced.

If you’ve read our previous blog posts, you’ll know that we are enamored by how many functions the AMT machines have. The Precor AMT 100i is not just your standard elliptical; it can also double as a stepper or a ski machine. It does all of this on the fly also without any manual adjustments needed. Just adjust your stride and the machine will adapt to it.

DSC_6502

Cybex 550T Treadmill

Treadmills are hands down the most popular cardio fitness equipment so we definitely had to include one in our sale. Many of our customers want commercial grade gym equipment but their floor space is limited. While most commercial grade treadmills take up a ton of room, the Cybex 550T treadmill delivers the quality in a compact size. It has a low and clean profile which is great for both a gym and home.

The Cybex 550T is functional for both fitness fanatics and the occasional user. There are a variety of built in programs with varying intensity levels.

We will be highlighting two more products on our Black Friday sale tomorrow! This sale ends very soon so please give us a call at 714-957-2765 or email us at [email protected] for more information. Visit our Black Friday Sale page for all our offers.

 

Why should you import fitness equipment?

If you run a fitness business overseas you’re probably asking yourself if it’s worth it to import fitness equipment all the way from the United States. International shipping is always going to be more complicated than domestic deals so would it really be worth it? There are dozens of exercise equipment manufacturers in every country so why do so many gyms and used equipment dealers import from us? We’ll break it down.

DSC_6606

  1. There is much more commercial grade equipment in the United States.

Two of the top fitness brands worldwide are Precor and Life Fitness which are both based in the United States. Most of the commercial gyms in the USA are stocked with gym machines from these brands so there is a much higher inventory of it as opposed to other countries. American gyms also tend to rent their equipment on two to three year leases and trade in after that period. This creates a large market for used exercise equipment, allowing our company to buy at lower prices and pass the savings on to you.

  1. The equipment is generally higher quality

American brands like Precor and Life Fitness are well known all around the world for a valid reason, their equipment is only the highest quality. These companies design their machines to withstand an enormous amount of use from hundreds of people 24 hours a day. Their commercial grade models are built to be extremely durable which is why they cost thousands brand new. This is a great case of you get what you pay for. Fortunately, Primo Fitness is able to buy this equipment wholesale and we’re able to sell fitness equipment for over 70% off MSRP prices.

  1. We offer the lowest prices for the equipment

In many countries, the price for commercial grade fitness equipment is actually higher than importing it directly from us. This is because many commercial gyms cannot afford to buy brand new from the top brands so there is no local used market for the equipment. If equipment ends up in another country, it is generally because it was imported there. Since there is a middle man involved it is natural that the prices would be higher than directly importing the equipment from a US based company.

Remanufactured Exercise Equipment

remanufactured Fitness Equipment

Primo Fitness primarily specializes in selling used exercise equipment, but that doesn’t mean that our equipment looks used. We have a team of highly skilled fitness equipment professionals that have been trained to Remanufacture all types of machines. Our technicians and mechanics have been certified by all the top commercial fitness equipment manufacturers.

Remanufacturing is a very broad and general term. When we say remanufactured fitness equipment, we mean that your equipment will look as close to brand new as a used machine can get. Not only will the exterior be redone, we go through every part inside the machine to make sure it’s running like how it came out of the box. A remanufactured gym machine will cost more than an as-is unit, but still significantly less than a brand new machine. Here’s what we do when we Remanufacture a machine:

  1. Machine is fully wiped down and cleaned

This is self-explanatory. We wipe down the machine with towels and clean any dirt or grime off the exterior of the machine. Our team will also clean off any rust if it is an older machine and make sure the machine looks aesthetically perfect.

  1. The machine is lubricated and oiled

We lubricate and oil every moving part in order to ensure smooth and quiet operation.

  1. All worn parts are replaced

This is where the bulk of the Remanufacturing work happens. All parts that have been worn down are replaced. This means that every moving part is replaced in order to ensure durability and extended use of the machine. Other parts that can be replaced are overlays, electronic sensors, running belt and motor drive belt on treadmills, belts, decks (waxed or replaced), frames, roller bearings, bushing, grips and decals. Shrouds are also replaced if they are damaged or cracked.

  1. Machine is powder-coated

Powder coating is essentially a much more durable and permanent way of painting. The molecules in a powder coat are very resistant to breaking down so the machines paint will not chip or wear down.

  1. Equipment is tested multiple times before shipping out

We will not only test out the basic functions, we will also check all the electronics and programming to ensure that they are working perfectly.

These are the steps involved in Remanufacturing used fitness equipment and getting them to look like new. Our team has been thoroughly trained to work with any machine so we can Remanufacture any model that we sell if you desire. Shop for remanufactured exercise equipment on our website!
