Sports Medicine and Fitness Technology students from the Jacksonville campus took a field trip to First Place Equipment. During the Sports Administration and Law course, students in Mr. Graifer’s class paid a visit to Pat Carbery to learn all about how fitness centers get those “fancy toys.”

Pat took them through their showroom and let them try out various pieces of equipment while providing insight into the equipment distribution industry. Students were able to gain firsthand knowledge from a well-versed professional who brought course concepts to life when it comes to how gym owners outfit their facilities with fitness equipment and state-of-the-art technology.

First Place Fitness Equipment has been a valued member of the Jacksonville community since 2008 and are a commercial dealer for many fitness centers, apartment complexes, hotels, and corporate wellness centers throughout the city and surrounding areas. They have five locations in Florida including Tampa, Sarasota, Brandon, and Orlando.
