That useless fitness equipment impulse buy that is now isn't!



Recommended Posts

What exercise equipment impulse buy have you bought in the past that lay under the bed or in the cupboard never seeing the light of day, but now due to quarantining or self isolating has become a lot more useful to you?

I had bought a gorilla bow resistance band system, it was very much an impulse buy. Sat under the bed for months, earlier this year I tried to sell it on gumtree received not one enquiry. Now a little over a month out from my surgery and with gyms being closed, it and I have been having little workouts to complement my walking. Early days yet but I am enjoying it and thankful that I didn't sell it.

My only regret is I was in too much of a hurry to buy and didn't wait for the newer lite or traveller versions..

I bought a gorilla bow about 2 weeks ago. It was literally the only peice of equipment that wasn't sold out. I kind of like it. Just waiting for my second order of heavier bands that are out of stock.

My daughter is using our treadmill more. It rarely gets used. Me? I am trying to get out and hike as much as possible, so using all my hiking clothes/shoes, but not my indoor equipment. Need to do more pilates though.

Running Shoes.

I had 3 pairs of Asics with treads in almost-new condition (courtesy of my orthopedic benefit included in my health insurance) that I probably used less than 10 times each the past several years.

Now I rotate through them twice a day to actually RUN, lol.
