SportsArt Fitness will sponsor a grant application assistance program for fire departments that are interested in applying for grants to purchase fitness equipment. To gain access to the program, department representatives must fill out a form on the Web site FireGrantsHelp.com. Once the form is submitted, a grant specialist will begin researching grants that fit the department’s needs and will contact the department, usually within 48 hours.
“There are over $400 million worth of federal grants becoming available this spring and firehouse fitness programs are eligible for a large chunk of that money,” Amber Maechler, director of marketing for SportsArt Fitness said. “We know that departments who make physical fitness priority see the benefits in the form of fewer injuries, lower disability claims, and stronger firefighters with healthy bodies and longer careers, and we think that is worth the investment.”
In addition to the grant assistance program, SportsArt Fitness recently became the first and only treadmill manufacturer to include updated firefighter’s wellness fitness initiative protocols in their commercial treadmill programming package. To learn more about the Wellness Fitness Initiative and SportsArt Fitness’ new treadmills please call 800-709-1400 x106.
