Signature High Value, Low Price® Gym Doubles Down on its Commitment to Inclusivity and Accessibility with New Long-Term Partnership
CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- EoS Fitness is celebrating its seventh year as the High Value, Low Price® gym for all fitness levels by building on its commitment to make fitness inclusive and accessible to all with a new companywide, long-term partnership with the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF).
In the spirit of the company's commitment to better the communities it serves, EoS continues its legacy of working closely with a number of localized charitable organizations to support causes related to health, wellness and overall community improvement.
This year, in honor of the company's seventh birthday, EoS has selected CAF as its premier charitable partner. The long-term partnership with CAF, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to providing opportunities and support to people with physical challenges so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics, allows EoS to expand its sphere of influence and grow its impact of accessible fitness options in communities across the nation.
EoS has more than 100 gym locations open or on the way, delivering its signature amenities to members in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Utah, and soon, Texas. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, EoS continued to serve its members nationwide with their health and safety as the top priority. The company pivoted operations in service of members' evolving needs, offering on-demand and livestream workouts led by group fitness instructors and personal trainers, providing cost-effective at-home fitness equipment options, and safely moving gym operations outdoors so members could still have access to weights and cardio equipment to continue pursuing their fitness goals.
"This past year we have worked hard to continue to meet the needs of our members with state-of-the-art amenities and an atmosphere where members can feel good about themselves and their achievements," says Rich Drengberg, CEO of EoS Fitness. "Although these past 18 months have thrown significant challenges our way, our commitment to keep our members healthy and active has not wavered. By partnering with Challenged Athletes Foundation, we are celebrating our growing ability to make an impact in the communities we serve, and this partnership is a true reflection of our core values and our goal to bring inclusive fitness to all."
As the EoS Fitness premier charitable partner, CAF will continue its mission of providing opportunities for people with physical challenges to increase self-esteem, encourage independence and enhance quality of life, complementing the EoS promise to members of a welcoming place for everyone with a culture of belonging.
"High costs of adaptive sports equipment and lack of resources should not keep individuals with physical challenges from being active. That's where we come in," said CAF Associate Executive Director, Kristine Entwistle. "With partners like EoS Fitness who truly share our mission, we can work together to help these athletes. The EoS company culture clearly aligns with all that CAF is trying to accomplish and we see from the top leadership down, EoS team members are engaged and excited about our partnership as an extension of the work they do daily to make fitness accessible and affordable for anyone looking to improve their health and overall wellbeing."
