North Georgia City Wins Innovative Fitness Chris Conti Memorial Grant Recipient for 2021

 Innovative Fitness today awarded the 2nd annual 2021 Chris Conti Memorial Grant to the City of Chatsworth, benefiting the city’s Police and Fire Departments. This year, all non-profits, public safety organizations, and public high schools in the state of Georgia were invited to apply. The brand-new fitness center will be housed within the Chatsworth Police Department located at 501 N 3rd Avenue. The police force presently consists of nineteen sworn officers and 2 administrative staff members in a city of 4,300 residents. The fire department maintains 14 full-time and 14 part-time employees. The newly designed fitness space will consist of the latest cardio, strength, and functional training equipment aimed to promote and encourage physical fitness among the police and fire workforce.

 

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. 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.

 

Innovative Fitness is a national supplier of fitness equipment and athletic flooring and provides a full range of services to their clients in both commercial and residential settings. The company strives to identify each client’s specific needs and goals in order to provide custom solutions that result in a one-of-a-kind fitness space.
