"WHY?" are we reaching out?
We need your help to raise funds to purchase new equipment and upgrade our facilities. The $12,000 we are seeking will offset the cost of these updates. The building we are in is over 45 years old; the heating and cooling system is long overdue for an overhaul.
Our ____mission is to serve our community and provide the basic and advanced fitness training for adults and youth that you will not find anywhere else, as well as provide a safe, positive and empowering place where all ages, genders, and ability levels can fully benefit from the challenging, cutting edge programming that we offer; ultimately our aim is inspire people to feel, look, and live better.
Get in Shape Fitness Center was founded a little over three years ago by US Navy Veteran Shannon Hamilton. Shannon served in the Special Forces aboard several US Submarines, and was honorably discharged. Somehow as he settled into his 9 to 5 civilian routine he found himself weighing in at 360lbs. He developed sleep apnea and other health issues very quickly as his weight spiraled out of control. Realizing that his poor health would not would not allow him to live the life he envisioned, he checked himself into Bootcamp. After meeting his own health goals, Shannon established Get in Shape BootCamp so that he could help others lose weight and meet their health goals.
In the last seven years he has helped 100's of adults and children get off blood pressure and diabetes medications, regain proper metabolic rates, lose weight, gain muscle, learn a healthier lifestyle and reclaim their youth.
Give What You Can!
If you give a minimum of just $5 you've helped tremendously. We are not asking for your life savings, but we need whatever you are willing to contribute in order to help make necessary improvements to our facility. If you have nothing at all please help out by spreading the word via social media in hopes that this reaches those who can donate. Your donations will help us continue to help others and change lives.
We appreciate so much any assistance you can give, please keep the donations coming, and please keep sharing this page to help us reach our goal.
Our main focus with the funds we raise is to tackle climate control in the gym. The gym is about 12000sf and the equipment used to heat the gym (4 heaters located on each of the 4 corners of the gym) were placed too high to be effective and have deteriorated to the point that they barely work at all. Cooling the gym is also problematic; the building currently lacks a cooling system, so working out during the summer months can often be brutal. We have been progressively installing a system of fans that will be very effective at keeping the gym cooler during the hotter months. The size of the gym means that the cool air or heat has to travel in order to make the environment tolerable for classes. In addition to climate control, we also need to repair our roof and ceiling, complete some needed electrical work, and upgrade our bathrooms.
In addition to repairs and upgrades to our building, it is time to replace and purchase equipment. The gym has seen growth, and with more students comes the need for more equipment. Some of the equipment and accessories that we need include, but are not limited to, stretching mats, foam rollers, jump ropes, resistance bands, bar clamps, dumbbell rack, training rope, 35/45lb barbell, bumper plates, and kettle bells.
This center is a life saver, it has produced wonderful results, saved and changed a lot of lives. The results produced speak for themselves. We have some clients that drive over an hour just to get the awesome results that we deliver. Help us to maintain the community and culture of loyal clients and athletes and accommodate the growth that is in progress. In return you will be rewarded with the highest quality customer service, nationally certified coaches and trainers, the hottest training equipment on the market today, providing you with the best methods to ensure life changing results in the comfort of your very own personal local center.
