Best Fitness Equipment

As with any other informed purchase decision, shopping for fitness equipment online involves some research, too. You will have to compare products and read reviews to determine which piece of equipment is worth your money. 

For most of us, the ideal scenario goes a bit like this: 

Get decent quality without spending too much.

We at Fitness EQ enable you to speed up the research phase and find the right products for you quickly and easily. 


We handle the digging and the hard work on your behalf – and we create in-depth, unbiased round-ups of the best fitness equipment out there in their respective category.

Our article series on the best fitness equipment includes a selection of quality fitness products for – what we believe to be – everyone’s needs.

We’ve divided our articles into six categories for maximum convenience:

  • Best Ellipticals
  • Best Treadmills
  • Best Exercise Bikes
  • Best Rowing Machines
  • Best Home Gym Equipment
  • Best Fitness Accessories


Some categories are relatively broad – fitness accessories, for example – while others, like ellipticals and treadmills, are not. Nevertheless, each category could potentially feature dozens, if not hundreds, of products from various manufacturers. 

We deal with this issue by splitting up each type of equipment into sub-categories. 

For instance, if you’d like to buy an exercise bike that won’t take up too much space inside your home, head over to our Best Folding Exercise Bikes article – and you’ll likely find one that suits you there.


Now, even though we only deal with the best equipment on the market, none of the pieces we reviewed are perfect. We do not hide this fact and, as you’ll see, we cover both pros and cons of every single piece of equipment we review.

On top of that, if you are a first-time buyer or don’t know much about the specific equipment that you’re interested in, we’ve got you covered. 

Our articles contain in-depth guides on choosing the right product for you by educating you about the essential features. 

Let’s say that you’re looking for a chin-up/pull-up bar. What should you consider before buying? We guide you through this process by listing out – and explaining – the crucial concerns, such as weight limit, the difficulty of installation, and the like. 

With the help of our articles, you’ll be able to get the best bang for your buck in the truest sense of the phrase.


Does the best mean expensive?

Not necessarily. 

In our reviews, we try to include high-quality products at different price points so that everyone can find something for their needs and means. 

Often, pricier fitness equipment is not sturdier or better built than less expensive products; it just offers more options. 

Take, for example, an elliptical machine equipped with heart rate monitors and digital displays and another one without these features. In nine out of ten cases, the former will be pricier, but only because it has gadgets built into it. 

If you can skip the bells and whistles and do without all that “fancy stuff,” you can save money – and still get the same quality product.

Have fun exploring your options and remember:

A great fitness journey starts with the right equipment!
