Bullworker Vintage Exercise Equipment AdsBullworker

If you’re looking for a full-body workout, Bullworker has got you covered in just 5 minutes. Yes, it might just look like a bar and some moving parts, but it gets the job done!

Gym Junior Vintage Exercise Equipment AdsGym Junior

The Gym Junior has a lot of exercise options included from the Punching Bag through to the Swimming Machine. And maybe it even works. But, if you’re going to put a full workout in we recommend changing into something more comfortable than your dress pants and button down shirt.

Haden Company Vintage Exercise Equipment AdsHaden Health

This aerobic exercise machine looks like it’s a serious piece of machinery, and like it would whip you into shape. We’re not sure what’s being shown on that little box, but it does look like it’s worth paying attention to as you spin.

Honor House Products Vintage Exercise Equipment AdsHonor House

This Swedish style exercise equipment provides women with the “gentle” exercise that doctors recommend. And if that doesn’t tell you that this ad is vintage, we don’t know what will.

Molby Revolving Hammock Vintage Exercise Equipment AdsMolby

Some exercise equipment just looks downright weird, and this is one of those pieces. The Revolving Hammock looks like it would offer great back pain to the uninformed or underprepared user.

Powerex Vintage Exercise Equipment AdsPowerex

If you believe the statistics, the Isokinetics from Powerex is the best piece of exercise equipment you’ll ever buy if you want to bulk up. We’re not sure who was in charge of that scientific test, but the results sure are impressive.

Starling Fitness Catalogue Vintage Exercise Equipment AdsStarling Fitness

The Starling Fitness catalogue offers a look at a great selection of vintage exercise gear. From the Ablec butt wiggling machine to the Spenby flexing spring rod, they’ve got it all!

Techrite Corp Vintage Exercise Equipment AdsTechrite

Another Swedish method entry, Techrite offers muscle building in just 15 minutes a day. And it hooks behind the door for extra value and usage.

Vigor's Horse Action Saddler Vintage Exercise Equipment AdsVigor

This may be our favourite entry on the list. The Horse-Action Saddler has all the vibrating benefits of horse riding, without the fresh air, human-to-horse connection, or need to leave your home. Not sure if it actually does anything to make you healthier or more fit, but it sure is a great example of the old ways.

Whitely Exerciser Vintage Exercise Equipment AdsWhitely

Fun and fitness for the whole family, the Whitely Exerciser offers you the means to develop thin arms, neck and bust, expand chest, improve complexion, straighten shoulders, get strong, acquire grace, perfect figure and reduce corpulance. That’s one heck of a list!
