Episode 098 – The Equipment Equation

When it comes to choosing fitness equipment, there are a ton of options out there and it can be a bit overwhelming trying to determine where to start. Because we appreciate that everyone’s budget will vary, Matt and I will try to help guide you through some essential equipment at various price points. Breaking it down by price, as opposed to category, seems like the most logical way to go here. We start with the basics, some of which you may already have, and move into some larger, more expensive equipment that may only be on your wish list; feel free to jump around where it makes sense for you.
