The Copperas Cove Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors named Anytime Fitness as the November Business of the Month on Wednesday.
Anytime Fitness was chosen because of their willingness to assist the chamber in many of its endeavors, to include the Hood Howdy, Chamber President Betty Price said.
“Since Anytime Fitness opened, they’ve reached out to the chamber asking what they could do,” Price, who suggested the business to the ambassadors during the selection process, said. “They have been instrumental in all of our Hood Howdies. They send people to help stuff the bags, which is a major undertaking because that is 500 bags with a lot of information. They also show up at the event itself to help hand out those bags.”
Price said they truly appreciate the help they provide.
“Anytime our businesses reach out to us and offer to help at these events is just amazing,” she said.
Members of the gym were very surprised and honored to be named as business of the month because they just love to get involved wherever possible and give back in as many ways as they can, Anytime Fitness manager Samantha Campbell said.
“We have accompanied the chamber to numerous Hood Howdy events on Fort Hood, bringing the city of Copperas Cove to our many military families in the Greater Fort Hood area,” Campbell said. “This summer we had hundreds of items in back-to-school supplies donated in conjunction with Communities in Schools to help send kids back to school with all the necessary supplies.
“We also provided free community workouts from May to August in the city park and at the gym for all members of the community, not just the gym itself,” she added. “We love to be a part of community events whenever possible and love being present in the Copperas Cove community. We hope to continue our presence and support of the community for many years to come.”
