exercise equipment[edit]

SOP? Equipment used for exercise. — [Ric Laurent] — 00:00, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Also a set phrase. A jumprope doesn't really count, this term is nearly always in reference to the muscle isolation machines at the gym.Lucifer 00:12, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
I don't agree. e.g. from Make your own exercise equipment (Jack Wiley, 1984): "Manufactured jump ropes of good quality are available for about $5 and up, so you won't want to go to too much trouble and expense to make one." So delete as NISoP. Note existence of other similar compounds like exercise gear and gym equipment. Equinox 00:18, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
It can refer to anything used to excerpt including heavy cans but it usually means machines at the gym is my point. This means bench press, adductor, incline press, treadmill, etc in most situations and is implied.Lucifer 00:19, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

It doesn't refer mostly to the machines. From the Men's Health Ultimate Dumbbell Guide: "All of the exercises in this book can be done with no additional equipment save a set of dumbbells or by using a few ordinary exercise equipment accessories like a weight bench or a Swiss ball, for example. If I added other less-common exercise equipment into the mix (such as cable pulleys, resistance cords, etc.) [] " Or from the book Dynamic Dumbbell Training: "When you're looking for a piece of exercise equipment that offers the body a unique challenge, you can't look past a pair of dumbbells." It seems clear that the major publishers don't use the term to refer specifically to exercise machines. --EncycloPetey 19:19, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
I can't see how this could be anything other than equipment used for exercise. Delete SemperBlotto 08:06, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
Yes, to those of us who don't use gyms, there is no special meaning attached to these two words. Specialist usages by paramedics or in gyms deserve special entries only if the meaning there differs significantly from general usage outside the specialism. Dbfirs 10:54, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
