I would approach the local YMCA and ask for assistance. -Marc D. Thompson, www.VirtualHomeFitness.com
Hi Connor. An excellent way may be to approach some of your local gyms and ask them. Gyms are constantly upgrading their equipment and oftentimes are willing to donate their used equipment for a good cause or use. You may need to run this idea (you should) by your school’s administration to get their official endorsement and to see if such a donation might even qualify for a tax-deduction for the donating gym.
Of course, ANY donated or otherwise used equipment should be thoroughly checked-out by a qualified fitness equipment technician before you use it to make sure that it’s safe!
I hope that this helps.
