Since the economy has taken a SERIOUS downturn lately, there is a boatload of used health club equipment for sale on the internet!
Unfortunately, many gyms and health clubs are going out of business. While that's obviously bad for them, it could spell O-P-P-O-R-T-U-N-I-T-Y for you.
We did a quick search to find health club equipment for sale on eBay and were able to find items priced from $349 to $23,400. When we search used gym equipment for sale on Google we found 895,000 hits. No doubt about it: there's a lot of used health club equipment for sale today, and the vast majority of that exercise equipment is coming from health clubs that have closed.
So how do you know if the used gym equipment you're considering is a good buy, or just a 'lemon' waiting to fall apart the second you buy it?
First and foremost, you need to personally inspect any and all used fitness equipment prior to paying. By checking it out yourself, you'll know what you're getting.
Second, you should carefully consider WHO has the used exercise equipment for sale before you pay. Is it a fly-by-night operation that bought it used a couple months ago, or it is a quality health club that purchased the equipment brand new a few years ago?
Third, before paying for any used workout equipment you will also want to think about WHY the seller is getting rid of their equipment. Are they selling because they could no longer keep up with the repair and maintenance costs, or is there some other factor involved? Ask a lot of questions!
Finally, prior to buying any used health club equipment for sale you must consider if your insurance company will 'cover' the purchase. In other words, will your gym insurance policy allow you to add used gym equipment to your facility? If not, then you're out of luck.
Buying and selling used exercise equipment can be profitable, but only if you know what you're getting into and do your homework before writing a check!
