A nonprofit organization chaired by Jake Steinfeld — founder of famed fitness brand Body by Jake — announced it will give out three fitness centers in four U.S. states for a total of 12 free $100,000 centers.
"The DONT’ QUIT! Fitness Center becomes the hub of the community, we’ve seen test scores go up, attendance goes out the roof, camaraderie is incredible, it’s an upward spiral of success that will be with these schools for many years to come," Steinfeld told KMVT-TV.
The National Foundation for Governors' Fitness Councils said it will select three schools each in Idaho, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota to receive the gift of a brand new $100,000 DON’T QUIT! Fitness Center.
The organization said interested candidates can download an application and apply online. The deadline is March 16, 2022.
Council leaders said 38 states in the U.S. have already had the opportunity. The facilities are paid for through public-private partnerships and don’t rely on state dollars.
