The fitness equipment involved during an exercise helps in strengthening our conditioning the body by offering either fixed or adaptable levels of resistance; it can also be used to improve the training experience or the after effects of an exercise procedure.

Fitness goes a long way back, over thousands of years ago, when the need for physical strength and speed were enhanced during hunting. Over the millennia, as individual cultures and industrialisation developed throughout the world, human beings became inactive that led to an interest in being fit, not just to survive but also to ensure a long and healthy life.

One of the earliest pieces of fitness equipment that was introduced in Ancient Greece, became popular and still stands true today was the dumbbells. Over time exercise equipment has greatly helped people to shape and condition their bodies, and as increasing numbers of innovations take place in the world of fitness and exercise, technological advancements are ensuring that fitness can be achieved not just outdoors but also within the confines of a small space.
