Management / StayFit Gym
Bill at BAMPSCO International and went above and beyond to help us open our gym. He was able to get us a great discount on top of the line Gym Equipment and helped us find a special business broker to secure funds. Bill also made himself available to us 24/7 for any questions or problems we had. We had a few items arrive damaged due to mishandling during shipping, and he sent us the replacement parts within a week. I would definitely recommend Bill and his company to anyone wanting to open a gym.

Owner / Real Time Fitness & Juice Bar
As the fitness equipment arrived, Bill at BAMPSCO/Gymstarters kept us informed on the timeline regarding the installation and set up of the equipment. The installation crews were flexible in scheduling installation to avoid conflicts with existing programs and activities held at the senior center. When the crews arrived, they were always on time and once assembled, we met and inspected each item to ensure it worked as it was designed. The end result was a quality exercise facility for the seniors as well as city staff to enjoy. We have already received this positive feedback - 1. The new equipment provides an additional option to the members to promote fitness and socialization amongst the members. 2. This new equipment has already attracted interest from non-members of the senior center. Many new potential members have toured the center and are impressed with the new equipment and are seeking to join the center.

As we reviewed and analyzed needs for the senior center facility, Bill at BAMPSCO/Gymstarters was very helpful and patient. He provided useful recommendations and suggestions based on his experience with other similar clients. I appreciated that he offered their contact information to allow me to ask them questions directly about their experience. He was attentive to our requests and did not press or add unwanted stress to our decision making.

I recently purchased new fitness equipment for an on-site fitness center at my condominium. Bill was my Gym Specialist with Bampsco/GymStarters and it was the best experience ever!!! Bill was very knowledgeable about the equipment, different brands, set up information and he gave me several options that would accommodate the needs of our community. The processes was so easy and my equipment is on the way. I will definitely call him when I have questions or in need of any other equipment. Thank you so much

Bill at BAMPSCO/GymStarters was exceptional. I got 3 total quotes from different equipment companies and BAMPSCO was the easiest to work with. Their pricing was reasonable and they sent a detailed overview of what the finished product would look like. Adding and subtracting equipment as necessary was easy to do and Bill was very prompt and professional
We searched for a reliable resource to help us design and procure the right equipment for the Walnut Wellness Center (we call it The Well). We needed a full-body workout facility to help us improve the health and lifestyles of our community. You all know that Mississippi is usually 49th or 50th on the health factors list. Tippah County ranks in the lower half of Mississippi counties. We are going to resolve that problem! When we requested support from the Gymstarters website, Bill at BAMPSCO took on our project and stayed with us all the way through to completion. Working within our budget, he and his team crafted a spot-on top of the line equipment list from Body Solid that meets our needs perfectly. He even coordinated storage and delivery of the equipment to work around our renovation schedule! Now that we are up and running, I can’t think of any other supplier who gave us the excellent support and resources that Bill at BAMPSCO provided. Quality, flexibility and value. I highly recommend him and GymStarters!

Owners / Journey Fitness
When the decision was made to put in a fitness gym in my hometown I contacted Bill at BAMPSCO / Gymstarters and it has been a great experience ever since then. From the very beginning Bill has helped tremendously by working with me to purchase the best package with the equipment needed at a reasonable price and worked with me to have it delivered on time. The equipment is durable, reliable, and serves the needs of my customers who've had nothing but compliments over all the equipment so far. I haven't had any trouble to this day yet but if I ever have a question or need advice on anything for the gym, Bill is an email away with an answer and advice on the same day! It has been a great pleasure working with Bill and I want to say thank you again for being with me every step of the way!

Bill (at BAMPSCO International / Gymstarters) was great to work with. From his guidance on package selections, to advice on general start up questions, he has become a friend I can drop a question and know that I will get an honest answer.

Doing business with Bill at BAMPSCO International/GymStarters was great. He offered a vast amount of knowledge on what equipment he felt would work best for my facility and made recommendations that helped improve layout as well as safety. All equipment purchased was brand new and it all arrived in excellent condition. His prices are beyond competitive and above all his customer service was like no other. Daily phone calls and e-mails were made through the entire process. Whether my equipment was on ship, on land, no matter the status, Bill constantly kept me updated on what was going on. This being my first facility and having to make my first LARGE purchase order (which included 2500+ lbs in dumbbells, racks, 7 flat to inline benches, 2 of each stationary bicycles, treadmills, ellipticals, 1 smith machine and a 5 stack jungle gym) he made the process very manageable and alleviated a lot of stress. His professionalism and knowledge of the equipment made the entire process enjoyable. I would not hesitate and cannot wait to do business with Bill again when it’s time to order more equipment. I HIGHLY recommend Bill and I welcome anyone to contact me in regard to my experience.

I have greatly appreciated your hard work and problem solving skills throughout this process. You have been with with me throughout all the challenges and it was appreciated. Overall, I am very pleased with the equipment. It is very high quality and the people love it. Very strong material.
Sam Erwin
Owner/Personal Trainer / Nordic Total Fitness
Over 6 years ago, I went through the steps of trying to open my fitness studio. BAMPSCO International/GymStarters was one of many companies I contacted to get pricing on the equipment I wanted. Unfortunately, (by no fault of BAMPSCO International/GymStarters) the process of buying equipment was not as easy as I had initially anticipated. I bounced from company to company trying to maximize what I could get with my budget. What I found was that many places felt the need to bash the competition in efforts to get me to not only exceed my budget but to purchase with them over another. Having had a good sales experience during the planning process with BAMPSCO International/GymStarters, I decided to come back to them when I had narrowed everything down to 2 companies. Nathan was the difference maker. Extremely professional, no bad-mouthing of other businesses, and ready to make a move. At this point, it was a no-brainer. I needed a company outfitting me who I felt I would get good support with after the fact. Nathan and team did not disappoint. There was plenty of follow-up and speedy answers to my many questions along the way. 6 years later and despite more competition in the industry than I had when I started, Revolution Fitness and Therapy is thriving. I have no idea how different things would have been in those first couple of challenging years if I had taken the bait with some of those less than savory other businesses. I'm thankful that Nathan and I got on a path together that would shape everything I would do thereafter. When you're starting your business, the foundation is everything. GymStarters helped me build that. To Nathan and team: My sincerest THANK YOU for helping me build the business of my dreams.

I highly recommend BAMPSCO International/Gym Starters to purchase your fitness equipment and fulfill your gym needs. Bill and his staff were highly professional, knowledgeable and efficient in helping with the purchase and shipping of two large orders to the American International School in Lagos, Nigeria to outfit two school exercise/fitness rooms. Everything arrived as anticipated in perfect order, which was no small task considering everything involved. Again, Bill and his staff were responsible for this all happening in a timely and streamlined manner. I give everyone involved five stars out of five stars and a big thank you for making the whole process smooth and easy.
