Information about Big Fitness


Welcome to out Fitness Equipment Community Marketplace.

This site was put together by me, Chris Soucie, Owner of Big Fitness in RI.  

   I have been buying and selling used gym equipment for 32 years.

   I thought there has to be an easier way to buy and sell used gym equipment.  Lugging 400lb machines around all day, picking them up, delivering them, shipping them out all over the country is not efficient.  

   There needs to be an outlet for all these gyms that have equipment they don't want anymore, and a place for home owners to get rid of there "cloths racks".  


The site also gives buyers a great opportunity to buy, rent or pick up for free a variety of equipment. 

   This site is based on location so you can find buyers and sellers locally and get top dollar for your gear.

    You can sell, rent, donate and share goods and services with the other members of the marketplace.

   The site will evolve and so will this page.
