I was just wondering if any fellow cannucks could point me in the direction where I could find high quality USED equipment for my home gym?
I would like to get a few items like a leg press / hack squat machine mabye an assisted dip / pull up machine and even mabye a powe rack (since the one I have sucks... )
* what I have tried so far... *
Local Pennysaver - > All basic - entry level stuff
Local News Group - > same
going to various gym equipment stores... too expensive...
My problem is that I don't want to pay 700+$ CAD for an assisted dip/pull up machine or over 1200+$ CAD for a low to middle quality leg press / hack squat machine... (all new stuff from Fitness Depot).
Any ideas? I don't mind buying second hand, mabye from a failed gym or something...
if you're anywhere close to Toronto, I think Elpietro has some stuff he was looking to sell.. he at least has a solid bench, some weights, and a good rack/cage
I know a couple people that have gotten equipment from their gyms when they replace it - you could ask at your gym or nearby gyms.

Too late, I sold it yesterday, and it was picked up last night. Took only a day and a half after I posted it on powerlifting.ca.
As for second hand gym stuff, you can check play it again, or try and find any established gyms that may be going through renovations. Quite often they will get a lot of new equipment, and either sell off or discard the old stuff.
