5 Ways to Treat Soreness#

5 Ways to Treat Soreness#

Many fitness fanatics love that feeling of soreness after an intense workout. Although many enjoy it, if the soreness is overwhelming it can drastically hinder subsequent workouts. Soreness can also discourage many newcomers to the fitness world. What causes soreness is the build up of lactic acid which is a byproduct of muscle metabolism. Although it is impossible to completely prevent muscle soreness after an intense workout, there are a variety of methods to reduce the intensity of the soreness.

15330_wpm_lowres

1. Stay hydrated

Staying hydrated not only helps to prevent intense soreness, it’s just a great habit to have overall. Staying hydrated before, during and after your workout is absolutely vital in not only getting a better workout but also in staying healthy.

2. Warm up properly

Warming up is an absolutely great way to prevent muscle soreness and also decrease the chance of injury. Warming up does not mean only stretching though. Warming up should begin with light cardio to increase your body temperature and then movement that will increase the elasticity of your muscles.

3. Eat after you workout

You do not have to immediately eat a big meal after a workout, but it is important to put something in your body, proteins and carbohydrates are adequate, in order repair and build your muscles. Your body can benefit from a protein shake or a small snack of chicken and rice in order to get the necessary nutrition that will prevent soreness.

4. Ice

Ice is the preferred method of recovery for many top athletes around the world for a reason. The immediate effect of ice is that it reduces inflammation and alleviates pain from the onset of soreness. An ice bath constricts blood flow and once out of the ice bath, will promote new blood to improve healing. This also flushes out the lactic acid that has been building in the muscle after a workout.

5. Stretching

After your workout, when your muscles are still warm, is the best time to get some stretching in. Stretching serves to bring blood to certain body parts to promote recovery.

These are just a few proven methods to battle soreness so you can get back to your workout. If the soreness is too much though, remember to rest and let your body heal itself.

 

How long should you work out?#

How long should you work out?#

There are many misconceptions about how long you should work out to get maximum benefits. You may hear of some of your friends doing three hour marathon sessions at the gym and others doing high intensity, shorter workouts. There are a wide spectrum of workout lengths ranging from 10 minute intervals to 90 minutes or more. Here are a few ways to help determine how long your workouts should be.

cycling-79618_640

It depends on your fitness goals, but 30 minutes a day is the minimum for healthy adults.

Across the board, the magic minimum workout number appears to be at least 30 minutes of moderate activity a day. This rule applies to all healthy adults and serves to maintain a healthy weight and lower the chance of diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis just to name a few. The Department of Health and Human Services is a little more lenient and suggests at least 150 minutes per week of moderate physical activity or alternatively 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity. You can also mix and match both moderate activity and strenuous aerobic activity. The Department of Health and Human Services also recommends at least two days of strength training a week, although doesn’t specify the type of activity or length.

Is there such a thing as to short of a workout or too long of one?

Free time is very difficult to come by and many people may not even have a 30 minute chunk to dedicate to a workout. This is not a problem at all, as shorter 10 minute intervals that add up to 30 minutes can benefit you just as much as one longer session. If you notice that you are still gaining weight, feel free to lengthen your workouts or add more vigorous exercises. Workouts can even be extended to 90 minutes which is extremely beneficial for overweight individuals who are in the process of losing weight or maintaining their weight loss. There is no magic amount of time that you should be aiming for, but if you begin to feel pain, not soreness, then you should stop your routine because that is never a good sign.

Should I have a time limit then?

It all depends on you. If you have places to go and a limited time frame, then yes set a time limit. Another benefit of setting a time limit is that it will keep you from dilly-dallying or overworking yourself and causing harm to your body. You should not design a routine with a time limit in mind though, but find a routine that is optimized for your body and that will help you meet your goals.

Again, we should specify that the time associated with your routine should be the time actually spent working out, not waiting in line for the machine or socializing.  A great way to reduce that machine waiting time is to buy your own used fitness equipment!

 

How To Buy Used Fitness Equipment in 3 Steps

Buying a commercial grade gym machine is not your everyday run of the mill purchase. When you’re spending hundreds of dollars, we know that you want to be sure that you’re getting the right machine and know everything that you need to know about it. There is also the matter of shipping your fitness machine. These machines weigh hundreds of pounds and require us to ship through freight, or if you’re only ordering a single unit, a truck. This also means that we’re not going to drop the machine off at your mailbox. Buying a used fitness machine can be complicated, so here are the steps you must absolutely take when looking to buy one.

DSC_0649

1. Figure out what type of machine you want

You know you want to get in shape, but what if you’re not sure which machine you want? The easiest way to narrow it down is to figure out whether you want a strength machine or a cardio machine. Cardio machines are for fat and calorie burning, they’re the machines that work up a sweat. The most common cardio machines are treadmills, elliptcals, exercise bikes and steppers. On the other side, strength machines are generally used to tone and build muscles. Using them won’t burn as many calories, but in the long run they’ll allow you do strengthen your muscles, do more cardio and melt away the fat. Commons strength machines are power racks, selectorized weight machines, leg presses and more.

2. Figure out your budget

Exercise machines range from hundreds of dollars to thousands of dollars depending on the type of machine, the brand and features. Before browsing for the perfect machine, you should figure out, in general, what your budget is. To figure out your budget, figure out what is most important to you. Write down a list of features that are essential to have in the machine you want. Once you figures out what you need in a machine, you can figure out your budget much more easily.

3. Find a location that sells used fitness equipment

There are many factors to consider when buying used fitness equipment. First is pricing. You want the lowest price, but remember to make sure that your machine is in good working condition and that it is a commercial grade machine that is far less likely to break down. You also want a company that has experienced sales representatives that will give you straight answers. If you don’t have any local used fitness equipment dealers, you should also check if they provide shipping.

These are the simple steps you should take when buying used fitness equipment. If you need any more guidance or information, feel free to contact us. Our staff has over 40 of combined experience and can help you find what you need.

5 Ways to Motivate Yourself to Exercise

We all know the benefits of exercising, but sometimes it is still really hard to get up and start moving. You can browse Instagram and read motivational quotes to your heart’s content, which may work for some; for others, we have to get a little more creative. When looking inside your heart for inspiration and motivation isn’t enough, we have other methods to get you psyched up to work out.

10340_wpm_lowres

1. Get a workout buddy

Having a friend to work out with is a great way to keep both of you accountable. Everyone has their off days where they can’t find the willpower to go to the gym or work out, but having a friend to drag you along It also serves as a social activity to bond over sweat and soreness. There’s no ship more sturdy and solid than friendship.Having workout partner can also breed friendly competition between the two of you, encouraging you to work harder and get better results.

2. Punish yourself for not working out

Back in your childhood, you may have remembered having a swear jar that you had to put money into every time you cursed. This principle worked because of negative reinforcement. Swearing was associated with losing money, which is associated with depression, so naturally you’d swear less in order to avoid that feeling. This same concept can apply to workouts. Whenever you skip exercising, put some money into a jar to feel bad about yourself. Eventually if you skip enough times, you can use the jar money to buy an exercise machine for your home, which leads us to

3. Get a home gym

One of the most common excuses to working out is that people are too tired after work to drive all the way to the gym. The best way to solve this problem is to get a gym right in your home! You don’t need to spend a ton of money on it. You can buy some high quality, commercial grade used gym machines that will last. Having a gym in  your house will also slowly eat away at you if you constantly walk by it without exercising. You don’t need an entire set up. A single cardio machine and a couple of strength machines can be more than enough to get a full body workout.

4. Track your progress

There’s no better motivation than actually seeing results and having your body change before your eyes. Not only should you write down your weight every week or so, you should also track fitness goals like how many pounds you lifted or how many miles you ran. You can also take it up a notch and do before and after photos to track your physical progress.

5. Have a goal

It is absolutely essential to have something to reach for, something to strive for. Although it’s great to have general goals like lose weight or get fit, it is even better to quantify these goals. Maybe lose 20 pounds or run a mile in under eight minutes. Goals that you can reach, but will take some effort to reach are the best kind of goals. Once you reach your goal, pat yourself on the back and set another one. Fitness is not a one time event, it’s a lifestyle.

5 Common Gym Mistakes (That You Should Really Avoid)

It isn’t easy to begin working out and it might be discouraging to not see results right away. Losing weight and getting fit is not quick and simple, it’s an entire change in lifestyle. But if you’ve been putting in effort and not seeing results, you may be making some common mistakes that plague beginners and experienced gym-goers. Whether it’s at home or at the gym, try to avoid these mistakes that decrease workout effectiveness.

1. Not Eating Before Working Out

Many people live busy lives filled with work and family and sleep and other obligations, so it can be difficult to find time to work out and get in shape. Many people opt for waking up early and getting in a good workout before they start their day. It’s tempting to just hit your alarm and fly off to your workout, but it is absolutely vital to remember to eat before. If you’re not eating before working out, you’ll have no fuel to really perform  your best and get the most of of our exercise. It is recommended to eat around an hour before your workout, but again time may be a factor. Even if you can’t get a full meal, you should at least eat a banana (provides energy and is easily digestible) before starting strenuous exercise. Food is fuel and you’re not going to make much progress without eating. It’s like trying to drive a car without gas in it, you can push it, it’ll move, but it won’t get very far. You can read about previous blog post for food suggestions!

2. Taking it Easy

Many cardio machines come with televisions and fancy touchscreens in them nowadays, so it is really easy to be distracted and lose intensity. Many people also enjoy reading while working out on an elliptical, but it is important to remember that just going through the motions isn’t going to get you results. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t do other activities while working out, just be conscious that your intensity level is high enough and that you are truly focused on getting or staying fit.

3. Not Warming Up

Many people get amped up and immediately want to get into their routine and start working their hearts out, but not including a warm up in your routine is a great way to suffer injuries. It is not saving time at all to skip your warm up before working out. Contrary to popular belief, this does not mean starting off your routine by stretching. Stretching with cold muscles can also lead to injury. Do some light jumping jacks, lunages or push ups to increase your heart rate and warm up your body.

4. Not Learning Proper Form

It’s great to feel sore after a workout, but if you’re feeling actual pain,  you may be doing something wrong. The most common mistake is not learning proper technique, especially when lifting. Not only are you not going to gain maximum benefits, you can and probably will hurt yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask someone around you for help, or hire a trainer for a month to help you learn the ropes and make sure your form is proper. One thing is remember though, when deadlifting, don’t lift with a rounded back.

5. Doing Cardio Before Lifting

Again, proper form is absolutely vital when lifting and increasing strength. By doing cardio before lifting, you’ll become exhausted, making it extremely difficult to keep proper form. It is much easier to push your limits without harm when doing cardio, but doing so when strength lifting is not highly suggested.

Keep these tips in mind the next time you hit the gym, or maybe even when you’re working out in your home gym. Don’t know how to set up your own home gym? You can contact us and we can help you get started!

 

What to Eat Before and After Working Out

Knowing what workouts to do and how to do them properly is essential to getting in shape and staying in shape, but it’s important not to overlook what comes before. Eating correctly will only enhance your workout. Food is fuel and you want to put in the premium so your body can perform to its full potential. But before we get to what you should eat, we should probably answer when you should eat. Most recommend working out two to three hours after your meal. This ensures that you’re not too hungry, but also that you won’t upset your stomach by moving too much while working out. Here are some simple-to-make power meals that will be sure to give you enough energy to maximize you workout.

11496_wpm_lowres

Meals

1. Veggie Omelette

 Sometimes eggs (entire eggs) are a little misunderstood but there is no better source for useful proteins than eggs. You can add an extra punch and more vitamins and health benefits by adding vegetables such as mushrooms, peppers, onions to two whole eggs.

2. Grilled Chicken with sweet potatoes and broccoli

This is easily the most fundamentally workout beneficial meal you will ever have. It’s a staple in fitness and there’s a great reason why. The lean grilled chicken (6 oz is optimal serving size) is basically the best source of proteins you’ll get and it’s quite delicious too. Sweet potatoes are a great source of quality carbs and brocoli just filled with fun vitamins and minerals.

 

If you’re feeling a little famished, then it is highly advised to have a snack an hour before working out. Here are some great snack suggestions

Snacks

1. A banana

There’s a good reason why you can see star athletes like Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova downing bananas during breaks between play. Pretty simple, not much to talk about when talking about a banana. It’s yellow, it’s very easy to digest, portable, requires no utensils and a great source of carbs for endurance sport athletes.

2. Banana Almond Butter Toast

If you’re looking for something a little more than just a banana, then banana almond butter toast is a wonderful way to get some energy before you workout. It can also double as a quick breakfast if you’re short on time. Almond butter contains healthy fats and are a good source of protein. Get a piece of toast, spread some almond butter on it and slice some bananas up for a great pre-workout snack.

 

Post Workout

1. Hummus and Pita Bread

Hummus, generally made from chickpeas, is a delicious source of both carbs and proteins. When choosing pita bread, try to go for the whole wheat variety. This perfect combination is a great way to restore some of your energy.

Now that you know what to eat before and after your workout, why not test out how well you run with this new fuel? Check out tons of great used fitness equipment at Primo Fitness!

5 Ways to Workout at Work (Without Anyone Noticing)

8 hours in the office, 1 hour in traffic and 8 hours sleeping doesn’t leave much time to pump your weights or get your cardio on. There is no doubt that office butt is an epidemic, but there are many ways to battle the workday slump. There’s a reason that many people go home sore and exhausted after work, even if they’re not moving much or at all. Standing still on your feet for long hours or sitting motionless camped out in your cubicle can be brutal for your body. To combat these symptoms, short but effective exercises throughout your day can help immensely. If you’re running low on time to head to the gym, there’s no reason why you can’t get some quality mini-workouts in throughout your day. Here are some great ways to get in shape in your office without looking too ridiculous (although getting into shape is never ridiculous!).

1. Calf Lifts: Constantly sitting down and not moving can cause your calf muscles to tighten, causing discomfort. Calf lifts are a great, low impact way to strengthen and tone your calf muscles. This exercise can easily be done right at your desk. Here are instructions on how to do a calf lift:

  1. Stand up straight and either grasp a wall, a chair or your desk for balance. Your feet should be positioned parallel with your hips.
  2. Raise your heels until you’re on your tiptoes, like a ballerina, and try to balance the weight on the balls of your feet. Hold this position for 30 seconds to a minute and then lower yourself slowly.
  3. Repeat this 15 times per set and try to complete three sets. Or as many as your break allows you.

2. Wall Sits: Most conventional work places have walls, which is great because one is necessary for this exercise. Wall sits, or wall squats, are amazing for working out your quadriceps and hamstrings.

  1. Find a wall and have your back flat against it, with your feet out in front of you. Slowly begin to slide down the wall until your knees create a 90 degree angle (or less if you’re not quite ready for that yet).
  2. Hold onto this pose for as long as possible (20 to 60 seconds is recommended) and then return back to standing position. Repeat until the burn is felt.

3. Desk Push Ups: Using your own body weight to do strength training is a wonderful method when weights and dumbbells are not readily available (which is the case at most offices). While it may look a little odd to just drop the floor and start doing conventional pushups, desk pushups are a great alternative.

  1. Stand a few feet away from your desk. Place your palms on the edge of your desk so that they are parallel to your shoulder.
  2. Lower yourself until you reach the edge of your desk and push yourself back up.

4. Sitting Leg Raise: If you’re a little shy about exercising at work, the seated leg raise is perfect for you. Sometimes standing up at your desk isn’t an option but this isometric exercise can be done while sitting down behind your desk.

  1. Straighten one leg out and hold the pose for 5 or 10 seconds.
  2. Slowly lower the leg, but don’t let your feet touch the ground.
  3. Repeat with the other leg or with both legs if you’re feeling adventurous.

5. Cubicle Cardio: Although this isn’t one specific exercise, these are some tips on doing the little things that can really add up over time and contribute to your cardio workout.

  1. Tapping your toes may seem insignificant, but some studies have shown that you can burn up to 350 calories a day by fidgeting. So turn on some tunes and get to tapping.
  2. Taking the stairs instead of the elevator is a simple solution to increasing your daily cardio. The incline of going upstairs is great for your heart health.
  3. Walking is low impact but helps the metabolism get pumping. Instead of e-mailing your coworker, walk to him/her. Instead of browsing on your phone during a break, take a gentle stroll around the block.

These are just a fraction of secretive exercises that can be done in the privacy of your office. But exercise isn’t something to be ashamed of. Talk to your boss and coworkers and rally them up for office exercises. Get a basketball hoop in the parking lot, have a weekly one hour yoga session in the conference room, ask the CEO to consider installing a gym (because there are plenty of options for wholesale used gym equipment) or just buying a used elliptical, used exercise bike, or used treadmill for the office. There are endless possibilities to working out at work!

How to buy a used treadmill – Don’t dread the tread(mill)

Don’t dread the tread(mill)

Ask someone to name a piece of gym equipment and they’ll probably name the treadmill. There is no modern image of fitness more tired and true than a person running in the gym on a treadmill. The first consumer treadmill designed for home use was developed in the late 1960s and ever since then, the treadmill has become a staple of American fitness.

Modern gyms are beginning to look like the set of Star Trek, with touchscreens, LCD TVs and alien looking machines abundant; but the treadmill, minus a few bells and whistles added to the consoles, has stayed fundamentally the same. This is because the treadmill simply gets the job done in a variety of ways. The best way to buy an affordable used treadmill, that will last, is to buy one from a used gym equipment supplier, such as Primo Fitness!

Benefits of a treadmill:

1.       Ease of Use

First, the treadmill is extremely simple to use. People instinctively know how to walk and run, so there is no learning curve required to use the machine. Treadmills may differ cosmetically and internally, but once a person has used one, they can use them all. They also do not require adjustments to the machine itself for different people. Once someone hops off, someone else can hop on and immediately begin their workout. The simplicity is what draws many to the treadmill.

2.       Calorie Burning

Statistically, running at top speeds will burn the most calories per hour. Running at an 8.5 minute mile rate can burn 679 calories per hour for a smaller person and 940 calories for a larger person. This is compared to cycling at a moderate 12-14 mph pace, which will burn 472 calories per hour for a smaller person and 654 for a larger person. If weight loss is a person’s fitness goal, running on the treadmill is one of the most efficient ways to melt away the pounds.

3.       Consistency, convenience and safety

Some users may dislike the treadmill and deem it as boring, but this consistency and predictability is highly beneficial for a workout. Running outside can be risky as running over random curbs, cracks, holes or errant banana peels can lead to serious injury. Other hazards such as cars and innocent bystanders are also eliminated by running on a stationary treadmill. Treadmills allow for smooth continuous running in the convenience of your home or gym, so users are free to run regardless of weather. Also, it is quite difficult to run around the block with a TV strapped to your head, so alternatively, many treadmills have the option of attaching a screen so you can enjoy your sitcoms while burning some fat.

4.       Customizing and progress checking

Essentially every maker of treadmills, whether they are Precor, Star Trac or Life Fitness, equips their machines with a console. These consoles can control various aspects of the machine, such as speed and incline. Many newer treadmills also come with pre-programmed workout routines for a variety of different fitness goals. Both beginners and seasoned veterans can reap the full benefits of working out on a treadmill. These consoles generally also come with trackers that can determine exactly how far a person has run, how many calories they have burned and even what their heart rate was. This allows users to easily track their progress and follow a goal-oriented routine.

What to look for when buying a treadmill

There are dozens of treadmills on the market, so choosing one can be overwhelming. Here are a few factors to consider.

1.        Brand

The top brands are generally the top brands for a reason. Life Fitness, Precor and Star Trac are some of the most recognized and best names when it comes to treadmills. Choosing a treadmill from one of these brands will generally ensure that you will receive a top quality and durable machine.

2.       Commercial or Residential?

The decision of buying commercial or residential is highly dependent on your budget. If you’re thinking of purchasing a residential unit, your cost will generally be lower but these units are generally less durable than commercial units. When buying a used treadmill, it is suggested to go for a commercial unit, because they are built to run 24/7, there will be no issues in a one or two runner household. Buying a used treadmill generally saves you half off of MSRP.

3.       Make and Model

There are hundreds of different types of models of treadmills out there so it can be a little overwhelming trying to choose one. An easier method would be to figure out what features are most important, such as a touchscreen, different workout routines, incline or decline options, etc. If you’re not sure what you want, feel free to ask the salesperson for their suggestions.

At the end of the day, the best technique to decide which treadmill you want is by taking it for a test run. There are many different options out there, so if you’re looking to find the right path to fitness, feel free to ask one of our Primo Fitness Equipment Professional for their treadmill suggestions.

5 Tips to Buying Used Gym Equipment

If you’re in the market to buy used gym equipment for the very first time, it could be a very daunting task if you don’t quite exactly know where or how to start. But don’t worry, you’re probably not alone and luckily, that’s why Fitness Equipment Professionals is here to help.

If you’re like the millions of working Americans who balance a hectic work life, an even more hectic family – you’re probably finding it harder and harder to find time to balance your health and fitness, we totally understand. With your daily priorities changing constantly, we know finding the time to go to the gym after a long and tiring day becomes pretty difficult. But you’re a fighter, and you wish you had the chance to be able to work out at home and there’s plenty of reasons for that – it’s more convenient and comfortable, you don’t have to physically leave the house, and you get to break away from the daily grind in an environment that’s close to you, literally.

So just what exactly does it take to actually get one of those treadmills or ellipticals that you see in the gyms into your very own home? Where are you supposed to look? How expensive is it going to be? Are used gym equipment worth it? etc. We know you have questions, and we have answers.

Here are the top 5 things you need to know when buying used fitness equipment for the very first time:

  1. Know the difference between the 3 basic conditions of used gym equipment
  2. Familiarize yourself with the different types of machines, features, and brands available
  3. Have a set budget in mind and what needs you require in a machine
  4. Buying gym equipment used will save you lots of time and lots of money.
  5. Ensure that the equipment dealer is highly trustworthy and reputable

1. Know the difference between the 3 basic conditions of used gym equipment

The majority of all used gym equipment that are bought and sold usually fall under 3 basic categories: as-is (working condition), serviced and cleaned, and remanufactured (remanufactured). They are also priced very differently as well. The most affordable and least expensive condition is as-is, which means you buy the machine just as it is right out of the warehouse. If you’re just looking to keep a simple healthy lifestyle without all of the bells and whistles, this condition is definitely a good choice for you. But if you’re looking for something a little more, then you can opt to have a machine serviced and cleaned. Used equipment may tend to have some parts that more worn and used than others, which may cause potential issues if they fail or break down. This option allows you to have all heavily worn and used parts replaced to ensure a longer shelf-life for your machine. But let’s say you want a machine that will operate and run with you for the long term, you can choose to get it remanufactured. A “remanufactured” machine means that its basically re-built to look and feel just like brand new – from the mechanical parts to even the powder coating on the outside. But depending on the type of dealer, the quality of work can vary greatly.

Fitness Equipment Professionals has been buying and selling used gym equipment for over 40 years. All of our as-is models are properly tested by our service technicians for working functionality. We are experts at Remanufacturing equipment and have received rave reviews for our quality of work. We only use OEM replacement parts for all of our remanufactured machines and our technicians are certified and have decades of experience bringing old gym equipment back to life.

2. Familiarize yourself with the different types of machines, features, and brands available

Knowing all of the different types of exercise equipment available out there will definitely help you decide whats best for you. Here’s a list of the main types of machines that you should know: treadmills, ellipticals, exercise bikes (upright, recumbent), and strength equipment (freeweight, plate-loaded, selectorized).

What about some of the important features on a machine? What are they and why should I know or care about them? Good question. There’s a variety of standard features in cardio machines such as treadmills, ellipticals, and bikes are will help you – such as Heart Rate Monitoring, multiple levels of resistance for more choices in your level of intensity, incline/decline capability, and so forth. This is also important when you just happen to be testing out an as-is machine, check to see if the basic features are working and functional. Find out what some of the most popular fitness brands are so that you can get quality, name-backed equipment.

3. Have a set budget in mind and what needs you require in a machine

If you’re just starting out and looking for some advice and guidance, it definitely helps to have a clear set budget in mind and what you’re looking for in a machine. This helps the selection process greatly by narrowing yourself down to specific machines and models that will not only fit your budget, but also your needs. For instance, here at Fitness Equipment Professionals, we’ll work with you personally and directly to help you get a machine that’s just right for you. When you do business with us, our representatives ensure that you’ll get a fitness machine that meets or is below your budget, and is able to perform all of the things that you need it to do. That’s the FEP promise.

4. Buying used equipment will save you lots of time and money

We know buying anything “used” comes with a bit of skepticism, but we’re here to debunk it, at least for gym equipment anyway. To buy any piece of fitness equipment brand new is very, very, very expensive and can run anywhere into the thousands at the bare minimum. One of the main benefits of buying gym equipment used is the huge financial savings. Even if you did decide to Remanufacture a machine, the end cost on your end would still be far from what you would have paid if you bought it brand new. With money a little tighter than ever before, we want you to be get the most out of every dollar.

5. Ensure that the equipment dealer is highly trustworthy and reputable

With so many different people and companies selling used gym equipment, how do you go about choosing one to partner with? How do you know what you’re being told is what you’re gonna get? How do you prevent yourself from spending a lot of hard earned money for a machine that is “supposed” to last for a pretty long time? Take a few extra steps of precaution to make sure that the organization or individual you’re dealing with is legitimate. At PrimoFitnessUSA.com, we personally welcome all of our clients into our warehouse and let you personally browse, select, and test all of the machines for yourself. We’ll even walk you through every single step of the process of servicing and cleaning, or Remanufacturing your machine if you wish to know.
