MAGGIE has the best rights in the exercise equipment. 

Jake lost his right of ownership of the old piece of exercise equipment when he threw it off his truck. His voluntary act of discarding said equipment shows his intent of letting the equipment go and making it free and available for anyone who wants to claim ownership on it. Even though Jake changed his mind, Maggie already has prior claim on the equipment and her claim supersedes the Jake's claim.
