Used versus Refurbished? What’s the Difference?
We sell pre-owned commercial cardio and strength fitness equipment in two categories: used and refurbished. These terms are thrown around frequently in our industry, so we wanted to take a moment to explain what it means at Keystone Fitness.
We source equipment from reputable commercial gyms across the nation. It has been maintained regularly and cared for while in use. When we receive equipment, we thoroughly function test it. If a machine is fully functional we resell it as “Used” and pass savings on to our customers.
We only buy commercial grade machines that are built to last and can be reused by a new home or commercial user without concerns. Used equipment may have some minor cosmetic flaws.
“Refurbished” equipment is rebuilt by our team of expert technicians to new-like mechanical and cosmetic condition.
Equipment is cleaned and dismantled, professionally sanded and repainted, all components are thoroughly inspected and any worn or damaged parts are replaced (consumables such as belts, decks and batteries are always replaced). The machine is reassembled and tested for full functionality – like a brand new machine – before being sold.

Refurbished equipment can also be customized to your preference. We can refinish the frame and upholstery, to match your existing gym colour theme.
If you have a favourite piece of equipment that needs a second life, contact us and we can fully refurbish it for you at our Vaughan, ON facility.
