How to Keep Fit and Save Money

Post Type

We know that your fitness is important to you, and a combination of regular exercise and healthy eating goes a long way towards increasing your quality of life. If you like to take things further and enjoy a gym workout regime that’s great; it’s a sensible choice for both men and women. There is a problem, though: a gym membership can cost serious money. There’s a scenario that is played out all over the UK by many thousands of people: they invest in a gym membership, use it a few times, and then lose their enthusiasm for travelling to the gym and working out in front of others.


This is why it is estimated that close to £40million is wasted on gym memberships in the UK alone. That’s money that could be better spent in thousands of households. However, one company has come up with an innovative answer, and it’s a way to have the best gym equipment available in your home, without the pain of an expensive purchase. Hire Fitness is the leading name in gym equipment rental in the UK and Ireland, and offers the latest machinery and accessories at affordable weekly rates.

Hiring a Treadmill

Hire Fitness – the website is: - has been renting gym equipment to homeowners, schools, businesses and commercial gyms for many years, and works closely with top manufacturers to ensure its customers get only the very best and latest equipment. They have even had special models designed for the intended market, and boast many satisfied clients who are saving money while renting. If you do wish to buy you should talk to Hire Fitness about their rent to buy scheme, which allows you to eventually own the equipment after an agreed term.


With rental periods of as little as four weeks you can try the machinery for very little outlay before deciding to take out a longer term contract, and the comprehensive range of equipment includes everything from running machines to exercise bikes plus weight training equipment and wide choice of accessories. They offer a choice of models in each category, plus cost-saving bundles for added value for money.

Build a Home Gym

Whether you intend to install a full gym you could perhaps begin by choosing to rent a treadmill from Hire Fitness, as this will give you a good idea if it is the right move to make and if the available space is sufficient. For homes with less space it is a popular option to convert the garage into a gym, as this gives plenty of room without intruding on living space. With rented gym equipment in the home you will soon find you are more inclined to exercise regularly, as the need to travel is eliminated.


You will also find that you save sensible money, yet have access at any time of the day or night to quality gym equipment, every day of the year. Have a look at the Hire Fitness website for more details of their various offers and terms, and see how much money you can spend by losing that gym membership.
