Thinking through the most essential commercial fitness equipment is a great place to start. There are certain pieces of equipment that everyone expects to have available in a commercial gym setting. You also want to make sure to balance the range of equipment to meet the needs of different styles of working out, from cardio to strength to group equipment.
How do I Get Started?
Commercial gym equipment is going to be used by people of a variety of weights and sizes. Not only that, it’ll be under consistent use throughout the day, so it needs to be up to the demands of frequent use. Finding manufacturers you can trust is a major part of building the confidence to know that your equipment will not only perform but last, with as little maintenance as possible.
