Used exercise equipment can be a great bargain, if you know what to look for. Some types of equipment hold up fairly well to repeated use and can be a good choice to purchase used, while other types are less of a bargain if they require repairs or no longer function flawlessly.

Types of used exercise equipment that hold up well from one owner to the next tend to be items without motors or electronics. Things like dumbbells, barbells, and weight benches have been known to last many, many years with little to no repairs needed. Used cardio equipment with electonics, such as some treadmills and exercise bikes, require a thorough examination before purchasing. Like anything, items with motors and electonics can wear out. Before buying a used piece of cardio equipment, it is a good idea to understand whether the item can be repaired, if needed. Check whether the manufacturer is still in business and if parts are still available. Also, be sure to try out the equipment to make sure it still runs smoothly and all features are functioning.

Another option for purchasing used exercise equipment is to look for remanufactured or reconditioned equipment. These are used items that have been returned to their original specifications. They are usually a little cheaper than buying new equipment and may come with a limited time warranty.

Finally, if you can't find the used exercise equipment that you are looking for, there are some benefits to buying new. It is likely you will find a greater selection of new equipment to choose from and it will come with a full manufacturer's warranty, giving you added peace of mind with your purchase.
