Yes, there are a lot of opportunities in the gig economy now that you could make some money doing and save up for the equipment you need part time. Another option is to look for other trainers in the area and see if you could work out a partnership agreement with them where you could use their equipment in exchange for something – helping to train one of their clients or helping some other way.
