Get Fit For Less

It’s that time of year, we’ve eaten a little too much at the many Christmas parties and had a few too many mulled wines at the various Christmas fairs! But it’s time to get organised, the kids will be back at school before we know it and January will hit like a snowball to the face, so let’s kick off 2023 in the right way… by setting our fitness goals without the huge expense!


Research shows that physical inactivity is a significant cause of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and many other chronic health conditions. But let’s face it, the gym isn’t cheap. By the time you’ve added up the fees, new trainers, specialist equipment for at home training and all the gear (but no idea!) it costs a ton. So how do you make a cost-effective shortcut to help manage your expenses AND stay healthy? The answer is simple, rental.


Renting Rather Than Buying 

The sharing economy was the talk of the town in 2022 and is still getting everyone’s attention. And with exercise trends and your preferences changing daily, why make a long-term commitment with an expensive purchase, when you can rent out what you need from someone who already has it? Not only does it open up trying various exercises until you find one you like (and might stick to), it also saves you money! You can rent anything from a space to exercise, to fitness gear and even your neighbour’s home gym.

5 Benefits of Renting Fitness Equipment 

  1. Saves time

Life these days is already loaded with responsibilities, workload, and all too often, stress. Add in researching which fitness equipment to buy can sound too time-consuming and demotivate you to withdraw from the self-commitment. Renting out what you need saves time and means you can access what you want when you need it - try skipping, cross fit, yoga, your options are endless!

  1. Cuts costs

One of the main benefits - it’s easy on the purse strings. Renting is a great way to save money, as there are no large up-front payments, no repair or maintenance costs, so no worries! You can effortlessly book from the comfort of your sofa and collect the next day.

  1. Builds a community

Renting offers a more sustainable way of living and increases relationships, trust, and sharing between you and those with similar interests. It can stimulate great relationships and communication between two people who otherwise might not have met! Hello new running buddy from the next street along.

  1. No Long-Term Commitments

Welcome to the zero-commitment zone! Forget finance and credit cards, gone are the days of spreading payments to make the costs more manageable. Rental  gives you access to the same things but for much less and only when you want them - unlikely a traditional purchase that you then have for a lifetime and have to pay to maintain for a lifetime!

  1. It’s better for the environment

A bonus! Not only are you getting fit, but you’re also reducing your carbon footprint by increasing an items usage - win win!


Renting what you need (usership) rather than buying (ownership) is fast  becoming the norm, reducing the burden of owning expensive equipment. Join the rental revolution and start your fitness journey today!
