The fitness industry has been a hot spot for innovation—even through a crisis.
As we’ve seen in previous Fitness Industry Roundups, manufacturers have quickly shifted their facilities into making personal protective equipment to donate to local hospitals, and health clubs turned into backup medical facilities.
Here are more companies that are using their resources, leadership, and expertise to help communities get through the coronavirus crisis.
Precor Volunteers to Make Masks for Local Hospitals
In a LinkedIn post, Precor reported that members of its Greensboro, NC, team have stepped up to the plate to help amid the coronavirus pandemic. They are working to produce 100 masks a day to give to local hospitals, retirement communities, and police departments. Members of the Precor team have brought in materials from home and have been recruiting family members to help get the design of the mask as effective as possible. “Thank you, Rodney, Yvette, Rick, and Lou, our team behind the masks—you are truly the heart and soul of Precor, and we will all get through this together!” the company wrote on LinkedIn.
