Of the many shifts in the exercise industry through my lifetime has been the evolution of training equipment. While this has seen many superb innovations as well as a broad selection of questionable products, without question it is suggested to the marketplace that results are dictated by the exercise equipment you utilize. Though this will annoy many of the “experts” in the field, no one piece of equipment is the panacea and very few are not replaceable.
Unfortunately within an industry with many purely supporting products because of the “all-mighty” affiliate sale or the like, items and theories are “log-rolled” simply because it results in a financial profit to the endorser rather than improve an individual’s results in exercise. With the exception of barbells, dumbbells and medicine balls, along with standard apparatus such as pull-up bars and skipping ropes, there is no piece of equipment that provides material benefit that cannot be substituted. Unlike exercise theories, programming, diagnosing flaws and imbalances, injury prevention and rehabilitation, each that can take many years if not decades of hands on education and experience to comprehend, most equipment can easily be substituted and will save users considerable funds as well.
