Where Are the Best Places to Buy Commercial Fitness/Exercise Equipment?

With many new pieces of equipment being created every single day, it’s hard to find the best places to purchase equipment for your club or studio. There are so many vendors, stores, magazines, catalogs and options to choose from, that your poor brain can experience information overload very quickly.

One of the best ways to save yourself time and research headache, is to find an online fitness equipment dealer.  A dealer will enable you to familiarize yourself with the top products all in one place so you can strategically make your purchases. Another good idea is to go to a fitness conference and test out all the products you may be interested in. That will help you make your choices later on when you are ready to purchase.  You know what they say: “Try Before You Buy.”

The three online fitness dealers that stand out for most fitness professionals are:  Gopher Performance, SPRI and Perform Better.   Each one specializes in a particular niche to provide top notch fitness choices from several major companies they partner with such as TRX, BOSU and Total Gym.  It’s all about educating yourself and finding the best choice for YOU and your business.  I have personally made purchases from each of those three, and I couldn’t be happier with each of their services, selection options and customer service.

Here’s a little info on each of them:

Gopher Performance

Gopher Performance

Gopher Performance is a division of Gopher Sport — a company that has established itself as an industry-leading physical education, athletics, fitness, recreation and health products distributor. Catering to athletes who are looking to get better, do better and be better, they offer unique pieces of equipment that will help take athletic clients to the next level. They’ve been in business for 60 years so they’ve earned a good level of trust and customer respect over that time.  They also offer a 100% unconditional guarantee.

SPRI

Capture

If you are familiar with SPRI Products Inc, then you know that they are all about being innovative, especially when it comes to rubberized equipment such as resistance bands, Xertubes, and superbands. Some would even go on to say that they basically created this market in the fitness industry, because most people can’t think of resistance bands and tubing without mentioning SPRI. Of course, that is not all that they offer, but it is a niche market for them, where they have done really well with positioning themselves as top of mind awareness for all bands and tubes.

Another way that SPRI has really thrived in the market, is to partner up with famous, accomplished and respected fitness professionals such as Chris Freytag, Jonathan Ross, Trevor Anderson and Brian Nunez, to name a few. When you know that top fitness professions are also using a product that you are interested in, it gives a level of comfort to know that you are making the right decision.

2) Xercuffs®

4) Rollout Ladder
5) Step 360 Pro

Perform Better

Perform BetterPerform Better has also created it’s own niche.  Even though it has positioned itself as a leader in sports performance, Perform Better practically owns the phrase “functional fitness”.   Over the last few years, they have helped fitness professionals see all their clients as athletes, rather than just clients. They did this by approaching functional fitness in a different way and by offering the applicable equipment options, fitness professionals starting purchasing items that were once meant solely for athletes.

Perform Better also helped fitness professionals become more creative and more knowledgeable. They did this by producing their own signature line of 1 and 3-day seminars.  They have featured some of the best minds and most well known fitness entrepreneurs in the fitness industry, such as Michael Boyle, Martin Rooney, Juan Carlos Santana and Mark Verstegan. By aligning themselves with some of the industry giants, Perform Better has excelled at offering the most functional pieces of
equipment in the industry.  With the buzz word these days being “functional fitness”, it only makes sense to purchase from the leaders to best serve your clientele. So if you are looking for functional, then you are looking in the right place!

The Top 5 best and most unique pieces of equipment that Perform Better offers are:
