Imagine what our founding fathers might have thought about modern exercise equipment. For them, day-to-day survival was demanding enough, and their exercise equipment was determined by the tools they needed to feed, clothe, and provide shelter for themselves and their families.
With the conveniences of modern life, though, few of us get adequate physical activity unless we plan for it. Exercise equipment has become a booming industry, catering to any and all exercise regimens. Beyond a collection of strangely-shaped metal contraptions and battered medicine balls, exercise equipment now refers to a staggering assortment of clothing and shoes, extreme sports, yoga, and Pilates gear, child-sized models of popular adult workout machines, and a never-ending stream of books and videos designed to keep us moving.
How can you begin sorting through this Everest of exercise equipment to find what will work best for you? This is not an idle question; few homes today are without a collection of ‘must-have’ exercise equipment that is never used.
You might start by joining a local gym, YMCA, or community center. These often have a good assortment of exercise equipment on hand for you to sample for one fee. Many also offer aerobic and sports activities which can help you decide what might work for you. Local libraries carry not only the standard workout books and videos, but also many magazines and books to help you evaluate exercise equipment before you buy.
Once you’ve decided which exercise equipment best suits your lifestyle and interests, it’s a good idea to shop around before you buy. Many sporting goods and larger department stores carry a variety of items, with a wide range of quality. But nearly new exercise equipment can also be purchased from people who bought before they thought, and often at considerable savings. And, if all else fails, come on over to my place. You can test out our axe and splitting wedge - we’re busy putting up winter firewood.
