When the sun shines, should we be thinking about winter?

If you are considering the purchase of a new piece of fitness equipment, be it the only piece you will want or another addition to an established home gym, then you will realise that quality equipment will come with a heavy price tag. Be it a Treadmill, an Elliptical Cross Trainer or a new Vibration Plate, this can be a major investment for most of us.

Now you may think there is little you can do about that. You can search and study, looking for the best deals and best specifications. Of course, this is very advisable, as the more information you have, the more informed your buying decision will be. However, have you ever considered what time of year you should be buying your equipment?

It may sound obvious, but during the year, as winter draws closer, most people will feel more confined to indoors, and less likely to indulge outdoor fitness activities. This will tempt them towards the purchase of equipment. Likewise, after Christmas, as the New Year’s resolutions kick in, more people want to get fit and will again look at possible purchase. This means a heavy increase in demand during the winter months. So the buying of fitness equipment is very seasons, and the summer will always see a slowdown in sales for the retailer.

So, for the smart, forward thinking buyer, the summer months are always the ones where the best deals and lowest offers will be around. You really can save compared to winter prices. You can see a great example of this on the Orbus Leisure web site, where summer sale prices are at their lowest ever levels.

So, the sun may (or may not!) be shining, but there has never been a better time to look forward to winter!
