If getting fit and saving money were among your New Year's resolutions, you might want to jog straight through the showroom at the Fitness Exchange.

Behind the back door, you'll find a warehouse full of deals on high-caliber workout gear.

Store Manager Krishna Lisojo explains that the reconditioned treadmills, elliptical trainers, steppers, gyms and more in the warehouse sell for 50% to 70% off their retail list prices.

The equipment belonged to people or small-scale clubs who upgraded, moved or just didn't need them anymore.

They're discounted according to age and condition, and fixed up to be "like new." Here are some examples of the discounts on the gear.

A reconditioned Precor EFX46I elliptical trainer that originally sold for close to $6000 is discounted to $3699.

A Bodycraft Strata home gym that was originally $2050, is priced at less than $1000. And a Tru-Z 5.5 treadmill, which originally, cost $5900, is on sale for $2700.

They also have smaller items, like barbells and free weights, at a discount.

Plus, the Fitness Exchange delivers, sets-up and maintain what they sell.

For more information, check out the the Fitness Exchange website.

There are online merchants who sell used fitness equipment and some of them are listed below. But remember, these stores will not set-up the equipment in your home and most do not provide service locally if something goes wrong.
