Play it Again Sports

In a recent poll, many of you told me that you'd rather use a treadmill at home rather than the gym. The problem is, many of you also said that you can't afford to get one for your home. So where's the middle ground?

How about getting a used treadmill? One place you may want to try is Play It Again Sports. Yup, the store is still around -- Remember the massive marketing push they had in the early 90's? Play It Again Sports has a range of treadmill models from light walking to light commercial units. Play It Again Sports has many name brand model treadmills and they also sell a lot of other fitness equipment that you may be interested in adding to your home gym. Being that the stores are resale, each location will have a wide range of stuff so check out the store locater to find a Play It Again Sports near you.

This is a great place for trying out new stuff without breaking the bank. Also, I just picked up some dumbbells there for cheap. I use dumbbells but I don't want to spend a fortune on them and who cares if they have been used before.

I love PIAS (that's what my hubby and I call it). We go there first whenever we need anything sports-related: equipment, weights, and especially replacement soccer balls and footballs because they are our dog's favorite toys so we have to replace them pretty often.

this is the only place my gram would bring my siblings and me for shopping for soccer stuff.

I loved this shop when I lived in Canada. I could try out different sports and not feel bad if I gave them up cuz I sucked at it!! Mind you, I bought my first inline skates there for about $35 and have now been an avid fan of it for about 11 years now. I've since upgraded ;) but it was nice to try it out without going broke...especially since I was a student at the time!! I tried skate-skiing this way, too! OMG I loved it, my legs, bum and abs never hurt so much in my life...but now I live somewhere where I can't do it, so again, the initial cost doesn't bother me to now have equiptment at my parents in case I ever get around to doing it again. I wish they had that here in France. I bet it's great for parents as their kids grow so fast!! I know in Canada hockey equiptment is CRAZY expensive and sometimes you need a different size in March then you did in September due to a growth spurt! Yikes!
