A study has suggested that an extra 12 minutes exercise per person per day could save the NHS up to £275 million a year as well as free up 80,000 hospital beds. The most common reason for admittance to hospital is cardiovascular disease and Type II diabetes both of which can result from a lack of exercise. On average, it costs £3215 per hospital stay and therefore this lack of physical activity adds to enormous strain on the NHS. Extra exercise could help to reduce cholesterol levels, improve blood pressure and reduce BMI; all of which are contributers to diabetes and cardiovascular disease. One key finding of the study was that 70% of adults to not complete the recommended amount of exercise - five 30 minute exercise sessions a week. With average person exercising just 4 times a month, Gymkit UK provide ways to make exercise cheaper and more convenient for all. News source reference: Express

Gymkit UK are one of Europe's leading commercial fitness equipment suppliers and they have been doing so for 12 years. Their aim is to provide high quality gym equipment at affordable prices so that people can install it in to their homes and create a home gym. This is proving to be a more and more popular choice for exercising for a number of reasons. People's busy day to day lives mean that they need a convenient way to exercise in order to ensure that they participate regularly. Furthermore, the ongoing recession being experienced by the UK means that people are far more reluctant to spend money on costly gym memberships and installing your own gym equipment avoids this. Gymkit UK source fitness equipment from health clubs and gyms that may be looking to refurbish. The equipment is then given a full service and commercial clean before being sold to the customer. The most popular home gym equipment items sold by Gymkit UK include treadmills, exercise bikes, rowing machines and cross trainers; however it is worth mentioning that various other types of fitness related equipment is sold in abundance. Pamela Game, Gymkit UK employee said, "What an interesting statistic. I honestly believe that many people simply do not find the time to exercise which is why they don't do it very much. Having a home gym does make it a lot easier as you don't have to travel to exercise and you can exercise when is convenient for you, not when the gym is open. Furthermore, it also means that the exercise regime is not weather dependent so if somebody prefers to run or cycle, they can do so in the comfort of their own home if the weather is not favourable."
