Vancouver, WA July 11th, 2019—Core Health & Fitness, an industry leader in commercial fitness products, is proud to announce its partnership with Police Fitness, a program that helps first responders become “Fit to serve. Fit to protect. Fit for life.” Police Fitness was started by family and friends of an elite athlete and officer who lost his life in the line of duty.
In addition to providing free training sessions to first responders, Police Fitness aligns law enforcement agencies with a local health care provider to create a comprehensive health and fitness plan. Police Fitness recently built a new fitness facility in Virginia, which is available for first responders to workout with a certified trainer, free of charge. Core Health & Fitness is proud to support this initiative and is thrilled to furnish this facility with best-in-class fitness equipment.
According to Police Fitness Executive Director, Sam Bartlett “Our partnership with Core Health & Fitness will not only help us train local officers but reach our worldwide audience through online training. Our heroes deserve the best and with Core Health & Fitness they are getting the best.”
“We are extremely excited for the opportunity to support the safe-keepers of this community in maintaining top fitness levels, with Core Health & Fitness’ suite of state-of-the-art equipment,” said Jon Little, Core’s Vice President of operations. “We believe that physical fitness is an enabler, in many aspects of life, but most so for those whose jobs come with physical demands and dangers, as those of law enforcement professionals most certainly do.”
