How to Get Rid of Exercise Equipment

    Clean your exercise machines and equipment with a household cleaner and soft rag. Dust them properly and oil any moving parts.

    Make a list of features for each machine or piece of equipment. Include non-working items on the list.

    Place the machines and equipment in a space that allows prospective buyers enough room to check them properly.

    Take photos of the equipment and make a flier to post around your neighborhood. Add descriptive details about condition and original value. Laundromats, mail rooms, gyms and community centers are high traffic places to put them up. Include contact information, pictures and the asking price on your flier.

    Create a free ad online using one of the many virtual community bulletin boards. Include contact information, pictures, and asking price in your online ad.

    Set appointments for prospective buys.


  • If prospective buyers do not contact you, consider lowering your price.
  • If you are in a rush to get rid of the equipment, consider giving it away free or donating it to a charitable organization.
