Thanks for taking the time to visit the About Page for our website Fitness Equipment Reviews. A few people are involved in the running of this website. The reason that we started this site was really out of frustration.

If you have ever searched on Google for reviews on different types of fitness equipment, then you usually find a bunch of American websites. Now, while we have absolutely nothing against our friends across the pond, seeing reviews for equipment sold over there, is not really that much use for people living in the United Kingdom.

We therefore decided to start our own website.

Going to the Gym OR Training at Home?

In addition to that, we do understand that many people who want to try and stay fit and healthy, will prefer to go to their local gym. That does suit many people, and those gyms do offer some very good advice.

However, those of us who write here, just do not like having to go to gyms. We have collectively been in many of them over the years. We do however enjoy keeping fit but prefer to do that in the comfort of our own homes.

There are many reasons for that, but mainly it is because we can not always exercise at specific times. Many of us prefer the the convenience of being able to do that, as and when we have the time to do so. We also are not huge fans of paying gym fees. Some of those can be extortionate, and why pay a monthly fee, if you can get a good enough workout at home. 

A few of us also struggled with many of the people who go there. That ranges from people hogging equipment and also the attitude of some people. We found that some of the people there, and indeed, some of those personal trainers to be a really annoying distraction and they just plain irritated us. (Not all of them just a few)

Now put them alongside the guys who think they have to show off their muscles at every opportunity, and we ended getting really wound up.That is not even too mention the amount of Lycra that appears to be on show at every available opportunity.

What Fitness Equipment do You Really Need at Home?

Over the years we have played football, cricket, squash and just about any sport that we took a liking too. All of us here at one time or another have trained with various football teams and some of us have took coaching courses.

We have always enjoyed staying fit. At schools, we have enjoyed sports though we understand that many did not. We also have some writers here who stopped exercising and preferred the easier life of holidays and over indulgence. Only when the weight started to pile on did they eventually decide to get back to some decent level of fitness.

For those guys and girls it started with improving their diet and then by some simple walking.After that they visited a couple of the more modern gyms and left them just as quickly. That is when they  knew they would like to have some home fitness equipment.

The reality is that you really do not need to own every machine to stay fit and healthy. It depends on exactly what you want to do in order to stay fit. For some that could be a treadmill, for others a rowing machine, an exercise bike. For others it can be something as simple as a couple of resistance bands, or a mini stepper machine.

What is Fitness Equipment Reviews All About?

The foundation of any good training or fitness program at home is to have the motivation and dedication to get started. Once you do that, then certain equipment can really help you along the way.The big problem is that there are a lot of choices, in fact so many, that it can get a bit overwhelming trying to figure it all out. That is basically why we made this website.

We have all worked in different jobs over the years. A few of our writers have worked in Marketing & Sales for years so they know a lot about how big Corporate companies brand and sell their products.

Much of their fitness equipment options are good of course but just as many are over hyped by clever marketing. We wanted our website to be different. We wanted to be able to tell people which exercise equipment to buy and why. We also wanted to do that from my experience and the experience of actual buyers who have bought and used the products.

We also made a vow never to do paid reviews, or to do reviews where we received a free product in return for a review. That is a practise that we have no interest in at all and never will have.

So on this website we will be including many tips for getting fit and also tips for losing weight if that is what you have decided to do. We will however in the main be covering detailed information and reviews on the most popular choices of fitness equipment that exists for the UK market.

Some of the American websites are very good and we have read many of them - they just don't provide the right information for the type of exercise equipment that actually exists in the UK market.

Mainly we will be reviewing

We  will cover off other equipment such as weights, home gyms etc but in the main we will focus on the main exercising equipment and gear. These products are not cheap, but hopefully the information that we provide here, will make your buying decision a great deal easier. It will, if nothing else, make it a lot more simple to understand.

If you have any questions or inquiries, then the best way to get in touch, is to visit our contact page. There you can fill out a short form. We will reply as soon as we can.
