Hey everyone, some of you know that this project has been a work in progress for some time. Thanks to everyone who has been supporting us since then.
Strength Consortium Cooperative is a worker cooperative fitness business, meaning that it is owned and democratically controlled by its employees. We have an experienced and knowledgeable staff, a loyal client base, and most of the equipment we need to get started, but there is one thing missing — a gym space!
Please help us make Strength Consortium a reality by contributing to our Crowdfunding campaign. With a large contribution you can purchase a long term membership at a discounted rate. Smaller donations are welcomed as well. We are working on getting T-shirts made. When we have them completed we will be giving shirts to anyone who donates $30+.
Our goal of $10,000 is to raise enough money to have the expenses covered to get into a space somewhere in the Glendale, La Canada, La Crescenta, Tujunga, or Sunland areas. Our goal is to get into a space as soon as possible, and our hope is that we can do this as early as February. That said, while it may be necessary to raise this amount, we do expect that this will give us a bit more than we initially need. Any money in excess of what we need to sign a lease and pay for initial expenses (utilities, attorneys fees) will go into purchasing equipment. Those of you who join our movement will have a say as to what we purchase with these funds.
Here is what you get in exchange for various donation levels:
Personal training with any of our experienced coaches for 6 months: $2,500 (a $600 discount)
Group training for 12 months: $1,500 (a $300 discount)
Open gym for 12 months: $500 (a $100 discount)
Any donation is appreciated. Feel free to contact us with any questions or to make any arrangements for your future membership.
We look forward to serving your needs. Thanks again for your support!
