    Default Fitness Equipment dealers

    We are looking for a reputable dealer to work with to purchase heavy duty fitness equipment (elliptical, treadmill) for the firehouse. Looking for any advice. Thanks.

    Cool check around

    Check other depts that might have used a vendor. Also check with local gyms. One thing to figure out is a reliable vendor who will get you good prices but also a good service record. We got a list of basic equipment that would be in all stations: dumbell racks (5-50#) adjustable bench, med balls (6,10,12#) treadmill. From there we added as funds came in (ellipticals, balance boards, stairmasters, rubber floor matting), we got the majority from fed/state grants. We initially called manufacturers and ran trials on a variety of treadmills then later elipticals. Cheaper isn't always better, with more than usual usage we looked to what the big gyms were using as a guideline. If you need anymore help let me know
