    Wherever you buy your equipment, you will get far better service if you don't jar their ears by ending your questions with "at."

    I would think sports specialist stores would be a better place to buy gym equipment. The staff would have some knowledge of the products they are selling and therefore they could give valid advice. Also sports shops are more likely to offer after-sales service, then again, it depends on the item you're buying. Free-weights, if looked after well, should last a lifetime with little or no maintenance. On the other hand if the item you're after is an elliptical cross trainer, an after-sales guarantee would be essential, for as I have already experienced, they are subject to mechanical breakdowns, requiring part replacement. A good sports or gym equipment specialist should offer this service.
    Alternatively, renting equipment, especially an elliptical, may be a good idea if you plan to use it short term, and repairs are often carried out free, subject to the contract. Where I live there is a firm which rents out equipment for up to a year, with the option to buy at a discount.
    As for department stores, the saying: Jack of all trades, master of none holds true here. Stick to buying clothes at department stores.

    I've purchased everything used on craigslist. That requires patience and a bit of leg work, but I've gotten everything either new or gently used for less than retail.

    ~Craigslist, its not just for dick anymore.

    Craigslist is a good suggestion. Sometimes people are selling stuff as a set, but are willing to divide it and sell it by piece if you don't want it all. If your are uneasy with craigslist, try your local Play It Again Sports.

    I bought myself a gold's gym multi-traing door gym this past June at Walmart & I can't return it or exchange it because it's past their returning
    & refunding date.I'm having trouble putting it together even with the directions
    that came with it.It's directions are very confusing to me.I don't have any
    close male friends who can help me out with it at all.I don't have any gay
    single male friends in my life right now at all.So I'm trying to find myself
    some online.I'm not into the bar scene at all.I'm a proud nonsmoker.I'm
    alcohol free,drufree,caffine free & health conscious gay man who is
    interested in meeting other gay men who are alcohol free,drug free,
    caffine free & health conscious just like I am online before I meet them
    offline.I would rather be safe than sorry any day.

    If I took it to scheels with me,could they help me put it together for me for
    free or would I be better off finding a gay horny man online to help me out
    with it for gay sex in return?I wanna use it at home,I bought it for a reason.
    I bought it so I could build up my muscles at home.I workout at home.I
    would rather workout home than at a park or local gym or local health
    club any day.the only public places i go to these days are the local
    stores,the uwec, and the public library.

    I was in a 3rd floor apartment and still managed to lug around 40lbs weight plates without ever getting a complaint... I just made sure to be considerate and tried to coordinate my workout whenever the people below me were out (an ideal situation, I realize).

    Sex as payment for helping to put your gym together? I think you have it backwards. You are going to have pay them for the sex and then you are going to have to pay them again for building your gym.

    Every thread you start here you need help (your green apartment make over, purchasing a bed, buying a computer, buying a washer and dyer) and it somehow involves sex with the men you want to help with the project. This isn't the way the world works. Learn to do these things yourself or pay someone.

    nobody in their right mind will date,have sex with,be lovers with those who
    they don't find attractive at all.

    i had one gay friend who was friends with him before i become lovers with him in the past & i regert it.that's because he's not a good lover at all.he
    has a very small dick.he can't kiss/suck dick at all.he bites,he loves
    sexual pain & i don't.that's why i would rather be lovers with other gay
    single men first these days.
