All-Time Best Gym Equipment Brands

All-Time Best Gym Equipment Brands


Exercise is an important aspect of life. Not only does it connect us with the ancient past when our ancestors had to keep their muscles pumping, their heart healthy and their immune system strong in order for them to survive. But since the olden times when our ancestors only used body weight, basic movements, including jumping, climbing and running and things around them to exercise, we’ve come a long way.


Today, we all enjoy a wide range of exercises even without leaving our homes. We gain muscle and develop bone strength as well as improve our immune system not only through our body weight or basic tools and equipment, such as barbells, resistance bands and dumbbells, but also through advanced and revolutionized equipment for specific body parts, such as abdominal crunches, overhead presses and shoulder presses, all through the concise and consistent movements brought to us by the biomechanical designers of gym machines.


But while most of these machines, including selectorized and plate-loaded units, are designed and created to mimic real muscle and body movements, there are simply those gym equipment brands that dominate the industry and that have been trusted by top gyms worldwide. Thanks to useful customer reviews and testimonials, as well as our 20 years as fitness industry experts, we’ve gathered some of the very best. So if you were looking to buy one or two fitness machines at the moment, read on before buying for your ultimate satisfaction.
