About this idea
The main detail is providing a gym to single parents that cant really make time for their health due to the lack of childcare. Influencing and persuading our people to take control of their health!
Impact
Empower Fitness impacts the entire community! No matter the age, gender, or ethnicity. Empower Fitness plans to change lives 1 by 1 through health and fitness by increasing physical activity. Health is wealth! I plan to educate the community on how important it is to take care of our temple (our bodies). We can change our current health conditions by just moving our bodies for 30mins minimum per day. I believe providing a gym with childcare will lessen the excuses our people have to better their health. Which in return means healthier people in the community!
What I'll do with $5,000
The money would be for startup costs. Such as getting LLC’s in place. Advertising. Getting website created. Id love to get recertified for personal training, just have had the extra funds to do so. Finding the perfect location, rent on building. Possibly start getting small equipment such as dumbbells, kettlebells, squat bars, weight plates, etc. Find the needed resources to provide childcare needs. Employees and instructors will be needed. Swings, toys, mats, diapers, wipes, etc will all be things needed for childcare space. I understand $5,000 will not cover everything needed to open a gym but it will give traction to start. Gym equipment isn’t cheap. I’m sure more than most of the $5,000 will be put towards everything I would need to start up.
