When your new bumpers arrive, put your old bumper plates in the boxes the new plates came in and attach the return address labels to the boxes - we'll send the labels too. We’ll organise to have the old bumpers picked up and that’s it! You've got new bumpers!

HERE IS A TYPICAL SCENARIO:
Matt opened his gym five years ago
Matt opened his gym five years ago. He got the best bumpers he could afford back then, but now the bulk of his bumpers are looking pretty ratty. He needs to replace most of them because the collars are loose and cracking around the insert. Most of the plates are split and he has another pile that are completely chunked out and unusable. He wants his gym to look good but it’s starting to show its age.
He needs to replace his bumpers
The trouble is, coming up with the cash to replace all his plates seems impossible. He’s also concerned about the new gym down the street that has all new gear and charges lower membership fees too. Matt wonders if his clients have noticed how polished the new gym looks compared to his.
He is short on cash and his competior's gym has the best of everything
He's seen what his competitor has through the window. All new bumper plates, and the best of everything. He questions how they can afford to have all the best gear, pay the rent, and pay the salaries of all the trainers and staff working there too. Someone with a lot of money must be backing the place.
He gets financial advice and finds he can turn his bumpers into an operating expense
Matt speaks to his accountant to find out how they might be doing it. He learns that the new gym considers their equipment an operating expense (Opex) not a capital expense (Capex). So, they pay small monthly payments to have all the best gear, instead of having to come up with huge amounts of cash to upgrade the gym every couple of years. Matt realises he'd only pay $0.51 (51 cents) per member / per week (100 members) to have brand new bumpers in his gym every three years.
Matt finds out how he can have brand new bumpers every three years
Matt considers his options. He can make small payments each month and keep the gym looking great all the time or he can try to save thousands of dollars for upgrades every couple of years.
Matt really likes the idea of never having ratty looking bumpers in the gym. They are the most used pieces of equipment; what his clients see and handle every day. The Opex option sounds like a good idea. He pays a little bit each month and he gets brand new bumper plates for the gym every three years with no hassle.
