It’s essential to test any equipment. First of all check that it is easy to adjust, comfortable, and fits your body.
Ensure that moving parts move smoothly, and that frames are sturdy and well-made. Check user guides or instruction video, and be sure you are comfortable using the machine before you leave the showroom.
Assess each piece of equipment with the following check list:
|QUIET IN ACTION||-||-||-||-|
|EASY TO USE||-||-||-||-|
|SIZE OF MACHINE||-||-||-||-|
|DELIVERY / INSTALLATION||-||-||-||-|
|TOTAL SCORE =||-||-||-||-|
If you are comparing similar items it may help to use a checklist such as the one above. However, the most important features to look for are comfort and enjoyment. If you use a piece of equipment regularly and it helps you get in shape, then you’ve made a good purchase – happy shopping!
