Atlas Home Fitness
Atlas Home Fitness is a regional sales and service provider of Commercial Fitness Equipment to professional fitness centers like the YMCA. Nine out of ten times, when we install a piece of fitness equipment, we buy the trade-ins.  We clean and service the traded in equipment and resell to the public for home use.  We only buy it if it is less than 5 years old.  Although it may be used, commercial fitness equipment will feel better and last longer than any new retail product on the market.  You will save thousands for top notch quality.  It’s like buying a Mercedes for the cost of a Suzuki.  We have in home service and installation if needed.
