Fitness Equipment Reviews- Who should I believe?

Their are so many reviews out there! How do I know who to believe and if the company is paying for the review?

A: Oh my goodness how this has gotten out of control. Most review sites for fitness and exercise equipment are simply webpages and sites that support what the dealer or manufacturer sells.

So how do you recognize if this treadmill review site or elliptical review site is a being bought? One way is, if there is a CLICK here to buy anything that they rate equipment wise on the website…… it is most likely a fake one. It means that it is not an unbiased website and one that was created to ‘bait and switch you’ to believe that it was. BE AWARE!

Have you ever noticed?

Most of those supposed Internet sites are touting the features and quality of the same fitness equipment lines. Have you noticed this? So have we. Why is this so? Why aren’t the quality manufacturers or all of the machines mentioned?

Well, because they are suppliers to the affiliate sites. They also happen to be the machines that are on the lower end of the food chain in quality.

You too can start a website and sell their goods and get a commission. A sign of the times.

Then who can I trust?

With all of the review sites out there we all agree that it really has become more confusing then it should be. We don’t know these sites and remember you don’t know them either even if they may offer some good insight. Take this information and go to your specialty fitness dealer and try the machines. Each machine is different, some are built better, some feel different…one will suit your needs.
You need to thoroughly understand the machines by someone you can TRUST! sells machines at all different price points and DO NOT work on commission. They are all trainers and are the most honest company in the industry! I can GUARANTEE a lot of sites and STORES are trying to push you into one brand where they make more profit and their sales guys work on commission!

Like most things, reviews can and are being bought. At some point, you are going to have to trust someone. Ask anyone who has shopped at our store over the last 20 years and ask them about their experience. Even consumer reports does not test many of the machines out there and they are not the ones who have to service the machines year after year. Let our frustration be your salvation!
