Ossining High School in Ossining, NY, has a thriving athletic program, but its weight room—dark and cramped with low ceilings—needed a makeover. With limited resources to upgrade, school facilities personnel contacted Gym Source—a decision that made all the difference to the project’s success.
In a letter sent to Gym Source commercial sales associate Bill Hintzen upon project completion, Ossining Athletic Director James Dennett wrote:
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and Gym Source for making our dreams come true at Ossining High School. Our new weight room will benefit all the students and athletes. You provided us with state-of-the-art equipment that will serve the Ossining High School community well. Thank you for being flexible and helping us achieve our goal with the limited resources we had available. I highly recommend Bill and Gym Source in meeting any needs in the area of fitness equipment.”
Gym Source welcomed the opportunity to help Ossining High School improve its weight room. “It was tight, not easy to access, like going into an old boiler room,” said Bill Hintzen, commercial sales associate at Gym Source. “Tuff Stuff worked with us to make 92” custom racks that would fit the space,” explained Hintzen. “Plus, we added accessories and rearranged the existing equipment for safety, usability and esthetics. It became a more usable space for more kids.”
All told, Gym Source revamped the room with 6 new Tuff Stuff power racks, benches, fitness accessories, and all new rubber flooring. What’s more, the team completed the project in time for the start of school; the new gym was officially dedicated in a school-wide ceremony on December 3, 2012.
