Where to Donate Exercise Equipment

Sweat trickles down your forehead while your feet pound away at the treadmill. Your body moves in one fluid motion as you sway on the elliptical. A sudden burst of energy engulfs your muscles as you complete that final bench press. Nothing beats that powerful, dynamic sensation we feel during a strenuous workout. The right exercise equipment helps us all keep and maintain this sense of strength and activity, so don’t let your old machines build dust in your garage—they are ready to help people get on the right track today. Read through our list below to learn where to donate exercise equipment!exercise

Neighborhood Clubhouses

Some neighborhoods have clubhouses where people from across the community can come together and hang out. Whether it be for a Sweet 16th birthday or a movie night, clubhouses offer many enjoyable activities. Many clubhouses even have a designated space where residents can exercise. Help your neighbors get fit and healthy by donating today!

Visit your closest clubhouse in person or search their website for more information.

High Schools

A healthy and fit lifestyle starts from a good foundation. Outside of picking up French, figuring out how to look through a microscope, understanding slope, and learning about past wars, students in our high schools must also build a regular exercise routine. By donating today, high school students can breath life into your old machines. Help the youth of today develop a strong habit of exercise by donating your equipment to their schools.

For information on schools near you, you can look up your local school district online.
