Maybe you have an existing piece of equipment and are looking to grow it, or perhaps your starting from scratch. Regardless, you’re considering the benefits of having your own home gym versus the cost of a membership, and are wondering how you can do it on a budget.

Given that the average price of a gym membership is around $58 and can range as high as $135 or more, its certainly worth looking at the benefits of having everything you need in your own home. When you evaluate that membership cost over a five-year period you have a budget of nearly $3500 to work with.

One of the best ways to get the biggest bang for your buck is to explore purchasing used or refurbished equipment. You can often find great equipment from well-known brands in good working condition on marketplaces like eBay, Craigslist or Nextdoor, for as little as 10 to 25% of the cost of new equipment. And if you’re concern is about how long that equipment will last, then that’s where Fitness Parts Warehouse is there to help. We have replacement parts for most major brands, and our expert technicians are ready to lend a hand in ensuring that you get exactly the part you need to keep that used or older model piece of equipment going strong.

So, as you start the year thinking about the best way to get in shape, consider the economics of building out your own home gym on a budget with used exercise equipment and the spare parts you need from Fitness Parts Warehouse.
