Got any old gear lying around? You’re not the only one!
If you’re spring cleaning has stirred your desire to clear some space, getting rid of old fitness equipment can be just the thing you need. But if you’re not someone who likes to toss out the old, there are lots of ways to recycle and reuse old equipment that do not involve a trash can. :)
Did you know that Amazon and other online sites will often trade used fitness DVD’s in exchange for gift cards? If you have a huge collection like I do, chances are there are more than a few gathering dust. If you’re done with the old, save up for the new by trading them in or selling them on sites like Craigslist.
Women’s shelters are another great place for equipment and apparel gathering dust. For some women putting their lives back together, having the tools to make changes from the inside out can make a huge difference. Old dumbbells, yoga mats, fitness clothing, shoes, DVD’s and even water bottles are all things that you may want to donate to your local shelters.
