For those people who take their health and well-being seriously, it’s always a battle between the desire to have the best equipment and having the budget to afford it. Even the best home use equipment can cost a fortune let alone thinking about full commercial grade kit. Everyone has their favourite pieces of cardio equipment and of course a decent home gym wouldn’t be complete without a set of free-weights and bars, but add all this together and costs start to add up and makes the the dream less attainable. Buying cheap home use equipment, to those who take things more seriously, is also not a thought worth entertaining. Cheaper price means lower quality and more chance of something going wrong. Repairs could be costly, long drawn-out affairs. There are other options however.
- Many companies use demo machines to show big name gyms the latest model, once these machines have fulfilled their purpose, they are sold off at a cheaper price to get back the original investment. Some of these machines may still be under the manufacturers warranty. This represents excellent value, although the equipment may not be brand new and straight out of the box, being a commercial grade piece, it will more than likely be in excellent condition and under normal home use, will last a hundred years!!
- Superseded model, or end of production. When a new model is released, many companies like to clear out remaining stocks of the old model to make way for the incoming new designs. It may not be the latest and greatest, but it is by no means a bad deal. Again, these commercial models will last decades when used by one or two people at home and as above, may even still carry the manufacturers full commercial warranty.
- Trade-ins. When big box clubs catering to large membership bases update their equipment, they usually trade-in the old models in to get something back on their original investment. More often than not, these machines have been under a yearly service contract and although have had high usage, they have been well taken care of. Belts replaced and oiled regularly. Most equipment suppliers will happily sell these on at more or less the same price they bought it for in order to get it off their hands quickly. The last thing they need is a warehouse full of equipment just getting older. These machines rarely have any manufactures warranty left but if purchased through a reputable dealer, you will have after sales service and support just a phone call away.
All of the above options gives you a more reasonable entry into the world of quality health and fitness equipment. High end brands and affordable prices. SEARA is a company that has been in business for 25 years in Thailand and has built a reputation of being a trusted and respected business partner to both Commercial and Home Use markets and from time to time has stocks of good quality equipment as mentioned in the above article. You are more than welcome to come and see what is available either in the Pattaya showroom or in the large warehouse facility located an hour or so drive towards Bangkok.
Investing in your health and well-being is never something that should be taken lightly and it might just be worth the extra digging around to try to find a better quality of equipment at an affordable price than simply looking at the the cheapest easiest option that may may end up costing you more in the long run
