5 Ways to Get Best Buying Deals on Weight Lifting Equipment

Posted by Roland Steyn on February 2nd, 2017

Weight training involves the use of weights for resistance, including free weights (such as dumbbells and kettle bells) as well as weight machines (such as multi gyms and plate loaded machines). Looking to get the best prices? Here are some tips to find great deals on weight lifting equipment:

1. Know the best times to buy.

Weightlifting equipment and other gym machines and accessories typically go on sale around January, as retailers cater to people who have made it their New Year’s resolution to lose extra pounds and lead a more active lifestyles overall. Some shops also slash their prices during the summer months, when business might be slower because most people tend to exercise outdoors.

2. Know where to buy.

Many experts recommend that you buy your weightlifting equipment from specialty stores instead of big box stores. Choose a fitness equipment supplier that can offer better warranties and more personalized services. The staff should be more than happy to make suggestions and recommendations. They should also guide you to the best value.

3. Testing the equipment.

Be sure to test the equipment yourself if you want to ensure that it truly satisfies your criteria. If you are buying online, make sure that there’s a return policy so you can get a replacement if required and that is always satisfying.

4. Ask for a discount.

If you can’t wait for the sale season, go ahead and shop for weightlifting equipment right away. It might not be a good idea to wait for a better price, as doing so might dampen your enthusiasm and derail your health and fitness goals. Is a budget an issue? Don’t be afraid to ask the store for a better deal. Try asking if you can purchase of floor model at a lower price.

5. Buy from a wholesaler.

This is another way of getting a great deal on weight lifting equipment - buy it from a wholesaler. Many of them provide the lowest prices when they are expecting new shipment to come in and need to clear their inventories.

6. Shop online.

It is much easier to compare prices online. Look for a ‘specials’ section where the retailer might post the latest deals and discounts. When buying weightlifting equipment online, always check the delivery rates and policy. Factor in the costs of delivering to your home or gym to ensure that you’re really getting a good deal.
