Fit to shop

FINALLY. I went out yesterday and bought just a few things.....

















Added to what I have already, this lot should see me all set for just about anything. I tossed up whether to get an Olympic or standard bar - many of my clients couldn't lift an Olympic bar, even without any plates. But Bike Boy likes the heft of the big bar and so do I, really. Then I remembered that I have a five-foot bar already, with a few standard plates, so that should cover all requirements. Given that the thing is seven feet long, it's a good thing I have a nice big room.

I might add another cable handle or two and maybe a pair of Olympic dumbbell handles, which I can use with the plates. Since you pay per kg, those hex dumbbells are expensive, once you start getting past the 10kg mark....

The guys at Fitness Choice gave a me a hefty trade discount, and threw in free delivery too. Now I just have to wait (impatiently) for a call to say it's all ready to drop off. That should be later this week, or early next week at worst.

Well, if the economy gets much worse, maybe I can branch out and offer some additional services.

Very nice gear! So, You'd obviously recommend FITNESS CHOICE...we are looking into some gear for a PT studio (and ourselves!) as well. Will look at that site again.

cheers!

Give them a call, Raechelle - I don't know how their internet prices will compare, especially with shipping, but luckily their Melbourne store isn't far from us.

Liz, you need your new studio before you can go buying the equipment for it. Patience... ;o)
