How to shop for weight equipment for your in-home gym (what to look for + what to avoid)

 

Initially, you might think that shopping for weight equipment is quick, simple, and easy. But most likely, once you start researching and looking at retailers and their products, you realize that it is a little more complicated. With so many different options from so many different places, it can be difficult to tell which weight equipment is the best choice.


What to look for:

  • Positive reviews on the company’s website or Facebook account: this will allow you to get honest information from customers who have already used the weight equipment you are considering purchasing
  • High-quality assurances: whether it’s by the seller or on the product, receiving a high-quality assurance is important.
  • A great feeling when you test it: if you get the chance to test the equipment and love using it, that is always a great sign.
  • A good amount of options: this will allow you to find the best fit for you.

What to avoid:

  • Over-paying: to make sure you are not falling into this trap, do your research and compare prices to ensure you are paying a normal price
  • Products that have no reviews: when you can’t find a review on a product or company that usually means either the company has just launched or they hide/don’t permit reviews to be shown. Both of these situations cause concerns you should be aware of.
  • Buying it before you see it: there is no better way to assure that you are getting the best quality weight equipment than seeing it and trying it out for yourself

Purchasing from a local retailer is a great way to “try before you buy” as well as receive customer testimonials. Plus, purchasing equipment locally allows you to save on shipping costs and the ease of returning products.
