Exercise Equipment – The 2 Things That Trip Fitness Equipment Buyers

By Dan T. Kennedy

Do you know people who have exercise equipment they use to hang clothes on? Or who’ve used it intensely for a few weeks, then put it away, in a closet or in a basement, and never looked at it again? Of course, you do. Everyone does. Because so many people want to get in shape. But hectic lives interfere. If you don’t plan carefully.

Read this article to find out the 2 ingredients required so that the next exercise equipment will not end up as a coat hanger. They’re simple yet, at the time of purchase, most people seem to forget them. Well, maybe some never think of them. It doesn’t matter.

What matters is that it happens often. People get inspired to lose weight, get in shape, hurry to buy the exercise equipment the source of the inspiration mentioned, start using it. Then the excitement fades, and the fitness equipment gets used in ways it was not intended or just stored. A few months later, another bolt of inspiration, perhaps a favorite actress on TV, and more fitness equipment makes its way into your home. To be used but briefly as intended, then tossed into the garage or basement.

Before you buy any exercise equipment piece, you need to be clear on what you want and why you want it.

I know you want to get fit. But what does getting fit mean to you? Why do you want to get fit? Why now? Don’t just want to buy anything just because you feel blah about your body. The stronger emotional impact your reason has, the more likely you are to use whatever exercise equipment you buy till it wears out.

Assuming you bought fitness equipment that actually does what needs to be done to satisfy your emotions.

For instance, if you have 3 or 4 inches of fat on your stomach and you buy and ab wheel, you might get tired fast if you wanted it because you want to display a magnificent set of abs. Because the ab wheel will exercise your abs, and a few other muscles, but it doesn’t push up your muscles on top of the fat.

If, on the other hand, you wanted it to straighten your muscles while you lose weight, so by the time you lost those 30 lbs you shouldn’t have put on in the first place, then you’ll stick with it.

If in addition to the above you have a really good reason (your wedding’s coming up, a reunion, you made a bet with that annoying Marge from accounting, the one all the men in your office ogle day in and day out that you’ll have better abs than her before 3 months pass), you’re really going to stick with it.

To conclude, buying exercise equipment, like anything else, requires you to be clear on what you want and why and to match equipment to need very precisely. Your health actually depends on you getting the right fitness equipment for you.
