At Used Gym Equipment we carry commercial cardio equipment from all the top name brands like Life Fitness, Precor, StarTrac, Cybex and more.

Used gym equipment costs do vary depending on if it is motorized, programmable, and has added features for measuring heart rate, calories burned, elapsed time, etc. What follows are some of the vital details about the most popular types of aerobic and cardio used gym equipment.

Ellipticals and Cross trainers operate with a circular up-and-down motion that’s a cross between a ski machine and a stair-stepper. A key benefit is these machines provide an almost impact-free workout that is easy on the body and joints. Our highly trained staff can help you select between different models capable of adjusting the resistance and grade automatically or manually. Many models also have levers with hand grips to work the upper body. Something to look for in every model are comfortable handlebars and nonslip pedals with curved ridges.

Whether you are looking to expand your existing fitness center or start a new gym, Used Gym Equipment can help with your health club financing needs.

Treadmills are ideal for indoor walking and running. The preferred models have a flexible surface for minimal joint-jarring action. Most users prefer a motorized treadmill. Used gym equipment like this needs a strong rebuilt motor. You also need a belt that’s long and wide enough to match the stride of different size people. It should have a sturdy frame with front side rails for safety, and an emergency stop. Commercial grade equipment needs to be easily adjustable for speed and grade for everyone to walk or run at a comfortable pace.

Exercise Bikes should be intuitive to the extent that no training is needed for new users getting started. Comfort is important for people that ride for long periods of time to achieve an excellent cardiovascular workout. These should have a comfortable, adjustable seat, and toe clips.

Steppers and Climbers provide a different low-impact workout by simulating the climbing of stairs. Some models have levers with handgrips to also work the arms. Often, steppers and climbers are a step up for beginners because these are more strenuous than treadmills. These are not for everyone because the motion can be hard on the knees. You want machines with independent foot action, handrails, and large stair platforms.

Rowing machines are used to workout the back, arms, and legs all at the same time. The total body workout makes this an important piece of equipment for many gym members. It can be intimidating to some beginners because the motion tends to feel unfamiliar. Some people prefer pulley models rather than piston models because it feels like a more realistic rowing experience.
