Do I want a cheap price or good service and support. What's the tradeoff?
You want to feel like you are getting value for money when you buy your fitness equipment. We all do, and we should! The problem is that you can't really tell what you are buying when you are comparing gear online. And there are a lot of prices online these days that look too good to believe. Read on and we'll help protect you from getting disappointed with your purchase.
Watch out for poor materials and processes
The problem you're facing is that fitness equipment like barbells, bumper plates, kettlebells, etc. are being copied and produced by lower tier manufacturers using second rate materials and processes. When you get a product from a lower tier manufacturer claiming to be a premium brand that doesn't perform, you feel cheated, and that's just plain wrong! We want you to get the best gear possible so let's break down how you can do that in the next couple of paragraphs.
Only choose equipment from companies that have been in business for several years
The logic behind this is that if the company has been in business for several years, clearly, they have been market tested and have passed. In several years of operation, the company would have had to overcome the initial development process, product faults and warranty issues, poor supply at times, and host of customer service issues. Businesses that sell physical products and are in the heavy use category, like fitness equipment, need to learn how to deal with these issues as best as possible. If they are still operating after several years, they have been tested by the market and have passed.
Make sure they offer good warranties
The top fitness equipment providers should offer among the best warranties in the industry, full stop. If you are about to pay a premium price for fitness equipment, you should have the confidence that if there is a fault, the equipment company will back it up with their warranty scheme.
Make sure you can talk to someone
Although self-help customer service can be handy in some situations, it would be nice to know that you can talk to someone on the phone, on email or on chat when you need to. This is another benefit of working with a premium fitness equipment provider – they will normally have a rep you can speak with or a customer service team you can call. A lower tier provider will most likely not have these support services for you.
