WhenEver Fitness is an independent locally-owned company, which means we reinvest into our community in most everything that we do. From the people we hire to the stores that we buy from. Unlike corporate chains or national franchises we can focus on the real needs of our local community. As part of our local community, we feel that we have a responsibility to strengthen our community in different ways including philanthropy and education.
As it is impossible to support every community need, we decided to focus our attention to areas that we can provide the most amount of assistance, health improvement by reducing obesity especially among children. Obesity rates among youth continue to grow as the technology gets more personal and safety concerns keep children indoors for extended periods of time. Often obesity can cause premature health issues and this can effect lives of ones that we love in our community.
Our strategy is to work with select partners in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to create pathways to opportunity for every child and family in Cottage Grove for better health and a great hope for the future. In addition to age appropriate program/areas to benefit youth of our fitness members. While most of our focus is on health related issues and education of children, we also believe that strong, well organized and inclusive communities can more effectively help families and children reach their full potential. Strong communities need the capacity to create opportunity and to solve their own problems. We work to strengthen local organizations and businesses to educate employees and business leaders to institute strategies and workout.
From our beginning, we have supported our local community with donations to local youth programs and health. We have sponsored youth fitness camps, races and other events for youth in our area.
Our staff is our most important resource and we hire from our local area whenever possible for temporary and long term employment. The benefit of this is that our staff is focused on benefiting our community as well. We also purchase many products from our local retailers whenever possible. This also strengthens our community and keeps local businesses stable.
Not only do we help others in benefiting the community but we work hard to do this as well. For example, we identified the need to have an area for children in the gym that the children exercise in a way appropriate for children of a younger nature, by adding a bouncy house and some select exercise equipment we were able to accomplish this.
