Fitness Give

Lusting after the hot new treadmill but don’t know what to do with the one you already have? Consider donating it to a group or person who can put it to good use.

Whether you’re looking to upgrade your gym or clean out old exercise equipment you no longer use, don’t toss it, donate it! Fitness 4 Charity specializes in finding a good home for donated equipment, working closely with churches, schools, hospitals, foster homes and police and fire stations. The process starts with a simple online donation form where you let them know what you’ve got available. If you’re willing to do more legwork, you can check with your local community center, senior center or high school to see if they are interested in the used gym equipment. If the exercise equipment is in working order, organizations like Goodwill and The Salvation Army may also take it. Lastly, there’s always The Freecycle Network, a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free. It’s all about reusing and keeping good stuff out of landfills;;
