Free Fitness Center Grand Opening

Kennesaw, GA (October 22, 2021) – Innovative Fitness and the City of Chatsworth invite the community to celebrate in the unveiling of the new fitness center, which was gifted through the 2nd Annual Chris Conti Memorial Grant. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 1:30pm on November 9, 2021, at the Chatsworth Police Department Headquarters located at 501 N 3rd Ave, Chatsworth, GA 30705.

The fitness center was granted to the City of Chatsworth, with the intention of benefiting the City’s Police and Fire personnel. The police force presently consists of nineteen sworn officers and two administrative staff members while the fire department maintains 14 full-time and 14 part-time employees in a city of 4,300 residents. The newly designed fitness space consists of the latest cardio, strength, and functional training equipment. Some of Innovative Fitness’s manufactures, TRUE Fitness and The Abs Company, contributed to the project.

Patrol First Class Officer Rowe, of the Chatsworth Police Department stated, “We do not have the resources to provide a gym or pay for fitness memberships for our officers and are currently using donated equipment in a former training room. Having a fitness room on-site is the first step in the creation of our officer wellness program.” Chief Charles M. Baxter of Chatsworth Fire Department commented that, “Physical fitness and strength are critical tools for a firefighter. Fitness equipment that will allow our personnel to develop their strength, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance will have a direct positive impact on our ability to serve the citizens in our community.”

Innovative Fitness inaugurated the Chris Conti Memorial Grant (CCMG) in 2020 to honor the memory of their co-founder, who passed away tragically in March of 2019. The creation of the CCMG perfectly aligns with the company’s motto, “See a need, fill a need”, and will carry on Chris’ notable generosity and desire to give back to others in his community.
