Last week, Retro Fitness donated over $3,000 worth of products to frontline health care workers at Jamaica Hospital.
In response to the pandemic, the gym franchise has frozen all memberships, offered free daily workouts and helped the elderly with grocery shopping. It also decided to give back to the community.
Working with Europe Sports Products, Retro Fitness donated more than 230 cases of protein drinks, snacks and energy drinks, including brands like Muscle Milk, American Body Builder, Optimum Nutrition and Cytosport.
The products were isolate for four days prior to delivery and sprayed with disinfectant to ensure they were sanitized.
The Retro Fitness area manager and franchise owner say they were inspired after losing two members of their own club communities.
“At Retro Fitness, we are dedicated to our communities, especially those affected where our franchisees and members live and work, and stand in solidarity with those on the front lines keeping us safe” said Andrew Alfano, CEO of Retro Fitness.
