Top Brands, Outstanding Service

Choosing the right commercial fitness equipment is essential when developing any type of fitness center. Whether you are designing a small-sized gym for a school, hotel, or community center, or a larger, more specialized gym for more serious workouts, you want to make sure you are meeting the fitness needs of your customers. At American Fitness, we offer many of the top brands of commercial fitness equipment, including, Body-Solid, Impact Fitness, BH Fitness, Troy Barbell, and others.

Before starting your equipment search, identify your space and budgetary requirements. Take into consideration how much space your customers will want for warm-ups and stretching, or for non-machine exercise, such as aerobics or free weights. This will give you an idea of how many weight or cardio machines are ideal for your facility.

Before deciding how many machines you need, you will want to make sure you are looking for commercial fitness equipment. Home gyms and residential equipment are not designed for heavy use by multiple users and will not hold up in a regularly used fitness center. Commercial fitness equipment is higher quality and will better stand the test of time, reducing downtime and costly replacements.

Many of your customers will want to do both cardio and strength training exercises when coming to your facility to workout. Commercial cardio fitness machines, such as treadmills and ellipticals, come in different forms. Customers can often spend 30+ minutes on a cardio machine, so having several available is a good idea for reducing wait times to use the equipment.

Commercial strength training machines are important as well. These are machines that many people do not have in their home, as they are large in size and expensive. You will want to allow your customers to work most every muscle group with the machines you offer.

Free weights and benches will also provide your users a variety of weight training options. Flat benches and incline benches are both desirable. Free weights should be provided in a selection of several different weights to meet the needs of different users and different exercises. To store the weights neatly and properly, you will want a selection of different sized weight racks.

Your fitness center should provide users a place for a safe and effective workout. For flooring, consider thick padded mats especially designed for use in gyms. Customers will also want mirrors on the walls to ensure they are following good form when working out. By setting up a safe and comfortable exercise space with a variety of cardio and strength training commercial fitness equipment, your customers will better meet all of their fitness goals.
