As people have become more aware of the benefits of exercise, the fitness equipment industry has gone from steady to booming. When it comes to fitness equipment, no other place on Earth spends more money than the market in North America. With governments bringing attention to the importance of exercise and so many studies being conducted on ways to live longer, it’s no surprise the fitness craze has taken on a life of its own.
There are several major companies which sell fitness equipment in both the consumer and institutional markets. Although gyms have sprouted up in numerous locations throughout cities and towns, people are starting to realize that by the time they pay for costly gym memberships they can own their own sturdy, reliable equipment at home. One of the most popular sellers is the treadmill. While these machines can be lined up at a gym, people sometimes have to wait their turn, so what better purchase is there than a treadmill (or stair climber, or stationary bike) you can get on at home whenever you like?

The end of the year tends to be a time when people reflect and decide to do better the next year in many areas. Since fitness is at the top of many people’s lists, it’s no wonder equipment sales tend to peak during this time of year.
