What are the Advantages of Leasing Fitness Equipment

When opening a new gym, not only do you have to think about the equipment that you want, but you also have to figure out the costs behind acquiring that equipment. A lease term can help you nail down exactly what it is you can afford. Let’s take a look at the advantages of leasing gym equipment.

Maximize your cash flow

Entering into a fixed monthly contract that matches your income to your expenditure is a smart way of helping preserve your cash flow. By keeping low monthly payments, that leaves room for investing your funds in other areas of your business that need growth. Also, you will know exactly how much your payments will be every month, so you can plan ahead for your expenses. You don’t have to deal with one large lump sum to purchase what you need, making it easier to budget for the equipment over a longer period of time.

Tax Benefits

Section 179 states that you can deduct the full amount of the equipment, without paying the full amount this year. The amount you save in taxes can actually exceed the payments.

Always have updated equipment

If you would like to keep updated gym equipment to remain competitive, leasing allows you to avoid being stuck with outdated equipment. When your lease ends you can replace the equipment you currently have with newer equipment. With leasing, you don’t pay for maintenance. If something breaks or has issues due to normal wear and tear, the leasing company is in charge of fixing the equipment.

We are now offering commercial and consumer financing for our fitness equipment through our leasing partner Geneva Capitol LLC. This is a great option for customers looking to buy a large quantity of equipment.

Must Have Equipment for a Home Gym

 

If you want to burn fat and build muscle from the comfort of your own home, you must have these essential pieces of workout equipment to achieve just that.

Dumbbell TKO Solid Steel Urethane Dumbbells

Dumbbells are essential for any gym. There are a variety of exercises you can do with dumbbells to attack all the major muscles of your body. If you are on a budget and/or lacking space to store sets dumbbells, you can always purchase adjustable dumbbells. Adjustable dumbbells are great because you can add or remove weights from the same dumbbell.

Adjustable Bench Deluxe Adjustable Bench

Once you have your dumbbells, the next move to make is acquiring an adjustable bench. With an adjustable bench, you can use your dumbbells to do bench presses, triceps curls, shoulder presses, ab workouts and more. To get the full effect, make sure to get one that can be adjusted for incline and decline use.

Barbell 

Dumbbells are great, but if you want to lift a heavier load, buy a barbell. You can do just about every exercise with a barbell that you can do with a dumbbell, but with better balance.

Weight Plates Impact Resistant Rubber Olympic Weightlifting Plates

Weight plates are absolutely necessary if you are going to use a barbell or adjustable dumbbells. They usually are sold in sets that come in different sizes. You don’t necessarily need a barbell or dumbbell to use weight plates, there are a number of weight plate exercises that can get you in shape.

 

Pull-Up Bar 

One of the cheapest and most versatile pieces of equipment for a home gym is the pull-up bar. You can either buy the type that can be screwed onto a wall or fits into a doorway. You can do a variety of exercises with a pull-up bar; chin-ups, leg raises, windscreen wipers and more.

Benefits of Having a Home Gym

Gym memberships can be expensive, being locked into a contract can be annoying, not having the time to go to the gym or having the desire to leave your house after a long day of work can all be a pain, especially if you live far away from your gym. Then, once you do get to the gym you might have to wait to use the machine that you wanted to use because it is being occupied by someone else, and you have to deal with wiping off every machine you use before and after. This is why having a home gym can be so much better than going somewhere to workout. Here are a few reasons why having a home gym is awesome!

Save Time

Instead of spending time on the road going to the gym and back, you can use that time for things that require your attention at home, like your family, pets and the meal you’re cooking for dinner. What if there’s traffic on the road? That would waste even more of your precious time.

Save Money

Save yourself money by not buying a gym membership. The average gym membership costs between $40 to $50 a month, but when you add the initiation fee, you’re looking at as much as $800 a year. Some gym memberships contracts are almost impossible to break from since they are legally binding contracts. Which means, you will continue paying for them even if you don’t show up to the gym anymore. Then, there’s the price of gas to get you from point A to point B. Gas prices always fluctuate, so there’s not telling how much money you would spend in a year going to the gym and back.

Convenient

A home gym will eliminate most of your excuses for not working out. You can listen to your own music on your stereo instead of listening to whatever music is being played at the gym. No need to mess up your eardrums by using earphones in order to listen to your favorite music while working out. You can decorate your home gym anyway you want, it’s your house. Your home gym is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year, never a closing time.

Should Women Lift Weights?

The short answer is, “Yes, women should lift weights.” There are so many benefits that gym goers can utilize to get in the best shape of their lives. The benefits that could interest women the most are weight loss and body shaping.

Weight Loss barbell

By adding muscle through weight lifting, metabolic rate goes up to feed the newly added muscle, burning more calories throughout the day.

Body Shaping

Lifting weights also helps shape the body. If all you do is cardio, then you will simply end up getting a smaller physique. Adding muscle to the right places will help shape out the body with a more fit appearance.

There are other benefits that come from weight lifting, like increased mobility, preventing muscle loss, fixing posture and alleviating back pain. The only catch is, you need to lift heavy. Lifting those 3 pound dumbbells isn’t going to cut it. You need to lift strong to look strong. Don’t worry about getting too bulky. Women actually have difficulty putting on muscle mass because of the lack of the muscle-building hormone, testosterone, when compared to men. So go out there and don’t be afraid to pick up those barbells!

What is the purpose of foam rolling?

BodyTone Foam Roller

BodyTone Foam Roller

The popularity of foam rolling has grown, and many people want to know what is it about foam rolling that has gained so much attention.

What is foam rolling?

First, for those unfamiliar with foam rolling, foam rolling is a form of self-myofascial release (SMR). It’s often done with a roller, which comes in different materials and densities, or done with a rolling stick and dense pressure balls, like a tennis or lacrosse ball. The goal of SMR is to put pressure on your muscles and fascia, which is the connective tissue that permeates the muscle. Doing so might release deformities in the fascia or muscle fibers, release supposed trigger points, and improve blood flow.

Does foam rolling have any benefits?

Most people use foam rollers to improve flexibility and mobility without the performance detriments that static stretching has shown to hinder performance. Studies have found that foam rolling might indirectly aid in performance by improving recovery and soreness.

 foam-rolling

How it’s done

A foam rolling session should last at least 10 to 20 minutes after a workout to improve recovery and soreness. It’s also best to foam roll at least 10 minutes before exercise to reap acute mobility benefits. Make sure to target each muscle at least for  10 to 20 seconds. The pressure applied should be moderately forceful, invoking tolerable pain. A medium density foam roller will work for the majority of people to hit larger muscle groups like your hamstrings, gluten, and back. Foam rolling can be a game changer for you in your fitness goals.

Free Weights vs Selectorized Machines

Going to the gym, but don’t know what equipment to use? Free weights or selectorized machines, which one is better? Let’s look at the benefits that each bring.

Free Weights 

TKO Solid Steel Urethane Dumbbells barbell

The instability of free weights helps build stabilizing muscles, which is great for improving balance, coordination, and athleticism. Unfortunately, selectorized machines usually have you seated or placed into a fixed position that takes instability out of play. Free weights also lets you follow a natural bar path, meaning you can move the weight in a pattern that comes natural to you, making it great to replicate functional, real-life movement. Therefore, free weights are great for performing a wide variety of exercises. Whether you want to do olympic lifts or deadlifts, free weights are the way to go.

Selectorized Machines

Precor Discovery Series Selectorized Biceps Curl 4 Stack Compact Multi Gym

Selectorized machines are also good in their own right. Stability from machines are great for your form to reduce the risk of injury, or when going through rehab. Since most machines provide a fixed movement pattern, the learning curve drops way down, making it perfect for beginners and the elderly. Fixed movement patterns also means you can isolate muscle groups much better. For example, if you want to workout your biceps, try using the bicep curl machine.

 

Both free weights and machines have advantages that the other doesn’t. They both can do a good job in building muscle and strength, depending on what you’re striving for.

 

Free Weights vs Calisthenics

The use of free weights and calisthenics for exercising have plenty of benefits, but is one better than the other?

It depends, calisthenics are better suited to improve functional body movements that are used in daily life because the basis of calisthenics is to move your body through space without any restrictions. For example, doing pull-ups and push-ups. Free weights, on the other hand, are mainly static loads, where you stay in a single place and manipulate the weight from point A to point B. For example, using bench presses and dumbbells. If you’re intention is to pack on muscle, free weights are for you. If you want to improve your capabilities in moving your body through space rather than lifting weights, calisthenics is for you. At the end of the day, do want you enjoy. I like to do both! Below, I have provided some benefits of using free weights and calisthenics.

Advantages of Free Weights

TKO Solid Steel Urethane Dumbbells

Free weights have an advantage  when it comes to simplifying progression. If you want to build strength, you simply have to lift heavier weights. The same thing goes for building muscle, by increasing volume through increasing repetitions. calisthenics doesn’t improve strength and muscle growth easily since it lacks the increase of volume. For example, if you want to achieve a more defined chest, push-ups can only do so much for you since there is not much you can do to add progression. With free weights, you can simply progress by adding more weights to the bar for bench pressing, or lift heavier dumbbells while laying on a bench. Another advantage of using free weights is the ability to target specific muscle groups for making that specific muscle larger or because you’re recovering from an injury, isolation movements are best achieved with weights. While calisthenics consist of many natural and functional movements that require multiple muscle groups to be targeted at the same time.

Advantages of Calisthenics

BodyTone-Deep-Knee-Raise-EB10

Body weight exercises, for the most part are free.  Free weights have to be bought or you must have a gym membership to use them. For calisthenics, you can always go to a local park that calisthenics bars to exercise, or you can do your push-ups and sit-ups at home. At the very most, you can purchase a pull-up bar or a suspension training system.  Which comes out to be a lot cheaper than buying free weights. With body weight exercises, the possibility of you getting injured is less than with free weights, since some people lift weights with improper form.

Easy Maintenance Tips for your Treadmill

Get the most out of your home treadmill with easy to do maintenance tips that can extend the life of your treadmill for many years. Preventive maintenance will keep expensive service calls to a minimum.

Treadmills

PrecorTRM823p20

Cleanliness

For your treadmill to work effectively you have to keep it clean. Make sure to pass a dry towel underneath the walking belt to gather up all the dust, dirt and debris that has accumulated over time. Also make sure to raise the deck and vacuum underneath to get rid of the dirt and dust around your treadmill because when you are using your treadmill the belt creates a vacuum under the treadmill as it rotates which picks up dirt and dust, and distributes it into the motor controller area.

Walking Belt

The number one reason for treadmill failure is not lubricating the walking belt every three months or so. Almost everyone that owns a treadmill does not know that they need to do this very important maintenance step. There are plenty of lubricant and lube kits to choose from that you can find on the web; many of them come with instructions or you can just follow the instructions from your owner’s manual. Many owners manuals are available on the web as well.

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 is a Fan Bike?

Are you looking for an indoor bike that is low-price and durable? Well, fan-powered exercise bikes are just that. Thanks to their simple design and construction, fan-powered bikes typically rank at the low-end of the price range and can endure years of regular use, despite the low price.

How does it Work?

Unlike other indoor exercise bikes, fan bikes don’t have push-button resistance, nor pre-programmed workouts. You are completely in charge of how much resistance you want to work with. The main difference maker of a fan bike is that it gets its resistance from the wind. Resistance increases by how fast you pedal. The faster you pedal, the faster the fan blades spin and the more resistance they generate. Slow down and the fan blades automatically slow down too, easing off on the resistance. Another difference from its stationary contemporaries are the elliptical handles that the user moves back and forth while pedaling.

Benefits

Aside from the benefit of being able to burn calories, fan bikes create a circulation of self-sustaining flow of air throughout any room to keep the user cool while they exercise. The combination of pedaling and arm movement give the user a total body workout. The coordinated pushing and pulling action of the arms and the pushing action of the legs, combined with the air resistance from the fan, challenges your heart to pump blood to both upper and lower body regions. Fan bikes are also typically lighter in weight than the average exercise bike, which makes it easier to move. The simplicity of the fan bike makes it perfect for home use.

What is an AMT?

Adaptive Motion Trainer (AMT)

Ellipticals have been a staple in gyms since they came out in the 1990’s, but recently a more advanced cardio machine similar to an elliptical has taken over. Precor’s Adaptive Motion Trainer (AMT) is everything an elliptical is and more.

What Does it do?

The AMT is a self-generating machine that turns on only when in use. The AMT adapts to your body motion whether you are walking or running. The platforms follow your feet in whatever direction you want them to go. You’re not on any particular track, so you’re not bound on a pre-determined ellipsis as you would be on a traditional elliptical machine; you can use it in a stair-master type way if you like, and you can even kick your feet up behind you to really work your hams and glutes. It’s totally responsive! The AMT blends the benefits of a treadmill with the low impact motion of an elliptical. This is why the AMT is considered to be a combination of a treadmill, stepper, and elliptical machine.

A Total Body Workout

The AMT’s versatility of motion and resistance make it a great option for all types of exercises. The AMT has several pre-programmed workouts that can be selected for a full-body resistance training circuit. You can also select Quick Start button and use the manual adjustments to increase the stride length and resistance until it fits your individual abilities. During your cardio work you can utilize the backward motion of your foot pedals to switch up the muscle groups being used. You can also incorporate pushing and pulling movements by using your arms.

The AMT is more than just a cardio machine. You can set up the machine to transition from striding to resistance training moves like squats, single leg curls, and leg raises. You can even incorporate upper body strength and core training into your workouts by placing your hands on the foot pedals to do push-ups or to create a plank while staying balanced at the same time since the foot pedals will move if too much pressure from one side is applied. The AMT will pause automatically to allow time to complete your resistance moves. Your pause time can be adjusted up to 300 seconds. All of these exercises help to improve overall strength in your larger muscle groups. As you can see, the AMT is a stand-alone total body workout machine.

Training for a Marathon

Whether you are a veteran marathon runner or a first-timer, you should always train your body to be ready for the stress of running the multiple miles that are expected of you in a marathon. As the old saying goes, practice makes perfect! This is especially true when it comes to running because your body needs to become use to the compressive and ground reaction forces on your musculoskeletal system while running, as well as the increased intensity of your breathing and heart rate. Your muscle and skeleton’s ability to bounce back depends much on your resiliency that builds up over time through proper training.

Benefits of Running on a Treadmill

While running outside gives you the experience of running against wind resistance, and helps you to get use to the terrain changes just like how you might experience in a marathon, there are still many advantages that running on a treadmill can bring you. Rain or shine you can always get a workout on a treadmill without having to walk, jog or run in stormy, cold or hot weather conditions.  There is no need to find an uphill cliff to run on if you can do that from the comfort of your own home by adjusting the incline options on your treadmill. Many people like to go outside and jog after they come home from work, but by that time it could already be dark outside, so for many people personal safety is a big concern, which running on a treadmill would certainly eliminate since you are either indoors in your home or in a gym. Another great advantage of using a treadmill is that you can watch TV while workout out. There is no need to miss your favorite shows because you want to stay in shape.
