The Gray Fitness Center

Johnny and Terry Gray were taking a tour of the Place of Hope Paxson Campus when they saw a little boy playing basketball. He was using a basketball hoop that was worn down. The Gray’s went home with that picture in their minds and decided the children should have something better. After much thought and planning the Gray Fitness Center changed from a vision and became a reality. This facility offers a variety of ways for the kids to learn the importance of exercise and health.

Located directly outside of the Gray Fitness Center is a full-size basketball and volleyball court for the kids. Inside the fitness center, the main area has free weights, treadmills and sled training. There is also a multi-purpose studio that can be used for classes to teach our kids.

Our Fit for Hope program encourages gyms throughout the community to raise awareness and funds to benefit Place of Hope. This has been things such as a fall festival, rowing distance challenges, WOD competitions and so many more! We have been blessed by the many gyms that have partnered with us in past years. The funds that are raised through this campaign go to help cover annual operating expenses.

We are so thankful for The Gray’s support and vision to see the Gray Fitness Center come to life. Place of Hope is excited to also partner with local gyms in our community. This gives them the opportunity to come to our campus and teach our kids different exercises. This can range from yoga, Pilates, weight training, cardio intervals, and even health discussions.
