OK, I am a pastor of a church and I want to offer fitness classes at the church. So, I am writing a grant proposal. I want to request enough money to send two people for training/certification and to buy equiptment to hold a class for 10 people.
Figuring how much money traing will cost is easy. I realize that what sort of equiptment depends on what sort of classes are offered, but generally what would be a good start.
I am thinking 10 Yoga mats, some combination of resistance bands, and maybe something else.
What do folks here think? what combination of resistance bands would give me the right assortment to cover most folks? Aside from Yoga mats and bands what else might I consider?
Are there places that sell bundles or sets of equiptment for people starting new classes or facilities?
I suppose I should point out that I can only use stuff that doesn’t need dedicated space, it needs to be able to be put away or stored
Do you know what type of certifications your trainers will be getting? Also, what type of classes do you have in mind? This will determine the type of equipment to buy (along with the space available).
As for locations to buy used equipment here are a few options:
-Donations (since you are a pastor in a church you could use that to ask people to help with donations).
-Check around to see if any other gyms or personal training studios are closing because you might find some good deals.
-Stores in your area that sell second hand equipment
I hope this helps. Hopefully others here could provide you with more options.
