About Us

At the moment, “us” is just me. My name is Sean and I'm a 40 year old man living in northwestern Vermont, situated about ten minutes down the mountain from a popular ski resort… and I don't ski.

Why I Started Home Fitness on Tap

Once I realized that this service didn't exist and really wanting to personally have access to equipment rentals, I began thinking about others who could benefit from a service like this. A few groups came to mind:

  1. People who can't afford to or do not want to buy equipment;
  2. People who workout inside seasonally;
  3. People who know they get bored with routines and would prefer access to a variety of equipment instead of investing in a single machine;
  4. People who are recovering from injury and only need a piece of equipment for a short period of time;
  5. People who don't live near a gym;
  6. People who prefer to work out at home.

With a fairly broad customer base in mind, I decided that it was worth a shot.

The premise is simple: Provide customers with modern, well maintained home gym equipment rentals at weekly and monthly rates while providing related services.

Those services include: Equipment delivery with in-home setup, equipment break-down and pick-up, host an online [local] community support forum, and if everything goes well, provide a streaming service though the website featuring licensed workout & healthy living videos.

The equipment rental model has several built in benefits:

  1. The large up-front (often financed) cost of home gym equipment is removed;
  2. Customers can now trade-in equipment they've out-grown or have become bored with for something that will keep their routine fresh and fun;
  3. In-home equipment placement and setup is not offered by most delivery services.

Hopefully the above has given you some insight into why this service exists and how I see it benefiting the community. I also hope that you see how the services I offer can benefit your personal health and fitness. Home Fitness on Tap is still very young and I hope to add more services in the future.

Please contact me if you'd like to share your thoughts, comments, or if you have suggestions for new services.
