As health and fitness is the lifeblood of Special Olympics athletes, Special Olympics Massachusetts recently had the opportunity to acquire some much-needed fitness equipment from a local company. Precision Fitness Equipment based out of Natick MA was kind enough to donate a number of pieces of high-quality equipment to the Yawkey Sports Training Center and the new fitness facility inside. Joining them was Bodyguard Fitness which helped supply the fitness equipment.
In all, a treadmill, stationary bicycle and an elliptical machine were brought in to outfit the new fitness room. SOMA will continue to outfit this room that will be used by athletes and their coaches to complement their training.
A special thanks go to Owner David Aykanian, and David Ramsey of Precision Fitness Equipment and Justin Richardson of Bodyguard Fitness.
Bob Johnson had the chance to talk with the folks at Precision Fitness during their visit to the Yawkey Sports Training Center and ask them why it was important for them to help contribute to the health of Special Olympics athletes. See his interview below.
