Ever Dream of Opening Your Own Gym?


Back In January, I sat down and made a list of my goals for this year. One of them was to sell my Warrior’s Gym equipment I had in storage. One of the rotating banners here on the blog announces that sale.

It’s probably been 6 months since I originally posted the notice. Since that time a few contacts were made. Some about getting a couple pieces. Some about my offer to donate it. A couple serious inquires about the whole lot but once details and real ability were fleshed out, these did not came to fruition.

It’s nearing the end of the year and it’s time for me to fulfill THIS goal. I want to find a new home for this great load of commercial exercise equipment.

Further information in greater detail is here. Let me tell you a couple of things before you go there.

As the information will tell you, although the equipment is dated it was new when put into storage and the facility where it has been kept is climate controlled and most of the selectorized equipment is covered in industrial plastic wrap.

Based on the way I presented the information to announce sale of it, I have to tell you, I’m surprised that more people have not contacted me. This is really an opportunity of a lifetime.

I made it very clear I was looking to sell it all at a price that would be reasonable and fair and help the one who would put it to good use. You can search all day long at commercial equipment broker sites and see for yourself what kind of money they get for the same individual pieces. And you can go to gyms all day long and find out that they use these same pieces to outfit their clubs today. Date equipment was purchased does not matter — the condition of the equipment does.

I did provide a general figure of what the equipment was worth. The figure was conservative, I believed, and I asked anyone who could show I was wrong to let me know. I never proposed what I would actually take for it because I figured anyone with common sense could read between the lines of what I was saying and, with a little bit of research, figure out what would be a fair and reasonable offer to make. Perhaps, I was wrong.

On the chance that I was, let me get the ball rolling and throw out .30 cents on the dollar as a starting place.

Always Believe,
