Goshen Valley Boys Ranch was recently awarded the first ever Chris Conti Memorial Grant in honor of the late co-founder of Kennesaw-based Innovative Fitness.

The grant will provide Goshen Valley with “a newly designed fitness space that will consist of the latest cardio, strength, and functional training equipment,” according to a statement from Innovative Fitness.

“The gym renovation will allow our boys and staff to focus on healthy outlets. For staff, this work can be taxing and sometimes leads to people not caring for themselves well. This gym will provide a convenient way for house parents and staff to maintain their personal health and wellbeing while still making a difference in the lives of our boys,” said Stacy Cooper of Goshen Valley. “We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of Innovative Fitness. We could not do this work without amazing people like them.”

Innovative Fitness is a national supplier of fitness products and athletic flooring.
