I teach health, ninth grade physical education, and advanced physical education at a small 1A high school in a rural community. Supplies and money for equipment are scarce, especially when you don't have an end of grade testing. Our school was built over fifty years ago and much of the equipment used in my department needs to be upgraded or replaced. We have one weight room that has fairly new equipment and several more stations due to its larger size. The area I have weight lifting is a little smaller with older equipment and several items that have broken or been thrown out have not been replaced. The resource I would like my students to have are dumbbells. We have a few, but are missing several different sizes, making it difficult and sometimes impossible for some students to perform certain exercises. I have a large class and need more equipment in order to keep them busy. The addition of more dumbbells will make it possible for all of my students to be able to perform their workouts without being limited due to lack of equipment. The dumbbells needed are: 25 pound, 55 pound, 60 pound, and 65 pound. This equipment would be utilized by 300-400 students. We have female and male weight lifting classes, as well as after school athletic training. This equipment would be used on a daily basis and last for several years. These dumbbells would be a great addition to my schools physical education department. Dumbbells are a very diverse piece of training equipment that can be used in many differnt workout regiments.
