Gym Source, the nation’s leading provider of innovative fitness solutions, is now a sponsoring partner of Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets NBA basketball franchise. As such, Gym Source becomes a valued fitness equipment supplier and service provider to the Nets’ training room.
Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) November 28, 2012 – Gym Source is thrilled to announce its sponsorship of Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, and to launch a partnership with the National Basketball Association’s hottest franchise, the Brooklyn Nets. As a sponsor of Barclays Center—the Nets’ home court—Gym Source becomes a valued fitness equipment supplier and service provider to the Nets’ on-site training facility.
For Gym Source CEO Richard Miller, the Barclays sponsorship is a natural fit for Gym Source and the Brooklyn Nets: “Barclays Center is the most exciting indoor facility in the country, and the Nets are bringing down the house. We’re delighted that the Nets can prepare for their championship season on Cybex equipment from Gym Source, as well as benefit from Gym Source expertise with all their fitness equipment needs.”
The sponsorship deal became official on September 28, 2012, and marks Gym Source’s inaugural sponsorship of a national sports team. Miller explains that for him, the partnership between Gym Source and Barclays Center is as much personal as professional.
“I was raised in Brooklyn,” says Miller. “I went to Ebbets field when I was very young, and I remember the blow to the neighborhood when the Dodgers left. Barclays Center is a great resurgence for Brooklyn, and for the entire city. This team and this arena are New York’s own, just like Gym Source. We serve a global clientele, but we’re a 100% American company. Our brand was born, bred and remains based in New York City.”
