When you are looking to buy new gym equipment for the home to get fit, you will soon notice how expensive it can be. This is obviously the price you pay to get fit in the luxury of your own home but have no fear, we take a look below at good places to buy cheap gym equipment to save you some money.
Online auction websites – Places like eBay online can be great places to get both new and used fitness equipment.

Just be sure to check the seller’s feedback and make sure the shipping costs are reasonable.

Online retailers – Many places like Amazon offer free shipping as well as competitive prices. As they buy in such large quantities, they are able to pass the savings from their low cost price on to you, the buyer.
Classified ads – Whether this is online like a website such as Craigslist, or in your local paper, classified ads are also a good place to buy exercise equipment, especially used gear. Also as the seller will likely be local to you, you could probably go and pick the gear up or get it delivered, possibly saving time and shipping costs.
Fitness retailers – Some ex-demo or display items can be found at retailers and you may even be able to haggle the price if shopping at an independent retailer.
As with anything you buy, it is always worth shopping around for the best prices and that is true when looking for cheap gym equipment, especially for the larger items such as treadmills, rowing and cycling machines.
