Skaggs Foundation is lending a hand in transforming lives by donating fitness center equipment to CoxHealth Fitness Center Branson. For example, 81 year-old Alfred Freeman from Branson is using a NuStep machine to help him build strength in his knee following reconstructive surgery at Cox Medical Center Branson. (pictured)
“There are so many great success stories to share from the fitness center,” explains Chris Thaller, Manager, CoxHealth Fitness Center Branson. “One thing they all have in common is the use of fitness equipment. Most people don’t have a personal gym at home, and the use of fitness equipment can really catapult a person’s workout, helping them reach their maximum fitness potential. The donation from Skaggs Foundation means more people will have access to equipment that will enhance their workout.”
Skaggs Foundation spent $30,000 on spin bikes, an AMT Elliptical, two NuStep Machines and Lifecycle bikes for CoxHealth Fitness Center Branson.
