Fitness Equipment can be Expensive and Many Not-For-Profit Organizations Cannot Afford to buy Gym Equipment for their Facilities

One of the most difficult rooms in a house to move is a home gym. Gym equipment is heavy, difficult to carry and expensive to transport. But regardless, you have to do something with it come moving day and here are some tips to keep you organized and ready to move!


Sell, Sell, Sell

Selling things online nowadays is simple. Online marketplaces such as craigslist or usedvancouver for example allow you to sell anything you want for free! Selling your old equipment is easy and convenient as the people you sell your equipment to will have to pick it up as well. You’ll find that lots of people are looking for used equipment so make sure you price whatever your selling appropriately as you may be surprised how sought after home personal training equipment can be. If you don’t feel comfortable listing your equipment online, you can also go the old fashioned route and have a garage sale. Post flyers around your neighborhood and sell not only your old gym equipment but other things you don’t want as well.

Give it Away

Fitness equipment can be expensive and many not-for-profit organizations cannot afford to buy gym equipment for their facilities. For example, a local school would be happy to accept any donated gym equipment as they always want to provide fitness option for the kids. If you don’t really need the money or want to deal with the hassle of selling, taking the road of a good Samaritan is a great option.

Buy, Buy, Buy

Now that you have sold or given away most of your home fitness equipment, you now have the money to buy new equipment! When you are thinking of buying equipment, make sure to reflect on what you had before and if you actually used all of the equipment. There will be no sense in buying another treadmill if you didn’t use the old one you had in your basement for the past 5 years. It’s also a good time to consider what new equipment is available to you and to do some research on brands and equipment quality. One thing I always like to do is check with my personal trainer friends who work with fitness equipment every day. Often times, they’ll have some really great ideas for ways to save money while getting the best quality equipment available.

No matter what you decide to do, moving can be seen as a time to upgrade much of the current equipment which will in the end avoid the hassle of moving and lugging around that heavy equipment

On Friday 31 March Neil and his team, Cam McLeay and Garth MacIntyre became the first people to pinpoint the longest source of the Nile, located deep in the Nyungwe Forest in Rwanda, East Africa. They were also the first to have made a complete ascent of the Nile from sea to source.

Simon Burdess, Buying Director of Fortnum & Mason accepted the gift from the team and promised to find a safe place for the bottle and its precious contents within the Fortnum & Mason archive of expedition memorabilia. Simon was particularly pleased to welcome Neil back to the store as he had been a part of the unusual “farewell” reception at the start of the Expedition in September 2005. On that day Piccadilly had been brought to a halt as one of the Expedition boats had been hoisted aloft on the front canopy of the prestigious store.

Throughout the Expedition’s 80 days Fortnum & Mason had delivered unique Chop Boxes and hampers full of their food and goodies to the team. A number of the hampers were presented to VIP’s along the way including the British Ambassador in Egypt and the Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism of Rwanda, Protais Mitali. One of the more unusual presentations was made to the skipper of a cargo barge in the middle of the Sudd in Sudan. He and his crew had help load the all important fuel for the long trip across the uncharted swamp.

At the welcome reception Neil paid tribute to his team and to the many people who had assisted them throughout the five Countries. He said “I am so proud of the team’s achievement. It was incredibly tough and I am pretty sure no-one else can ever repeat the awesome journey.I am also proud and privileged to have met so many incredible people on this Expedition. Some have been particularly precious to the team and we will never forget them or their assistance”
