EoS Fitness, based in Carlsbad with locations in Encinitas and Oceanside, has announced a new longterm partnership with the San Diego-based Challenged Athletes Foundation as the gym celebrates seven years in business, the company recently announced.

The partnership builds on the gym’s commitment to making its outlets inclusive and accessible, according to a Sept. 13 news release.

“This past year we have worked hard to continue to meet the needs of our members with state-of-the-art amenities and an atmosphere where members can feel good about themselves and their achievements,” EoS Fitness CEO Rich Drengberg said in the company’s announcement. “Although these past 18 months have thrown significant challenges our way, our commitment to keep our members healthy and active has not wavered.”

EoS named the Challenged Athletes Foundation as its premier charitable partner in the news release, noting the organization’s dedication to providing opportunities for people with physical challenges to pursue active lifestyles and opportunities for competition.

“High costs of adaptive sports equipment and lack of resources should not keep individuals with physical challenges from being active. That’s where we come in,” Kristine Entwistle, the foundation’s associate executive director, said in the announcement. “With partners like EoS Fitness who truly share our mission, we can work together to help these athletes.”

The partnership is companywide.

“By partnering with Challenged Athletes Foundation, we are celebrating our growing ability to make an impact in the communities we serve, and this partnership is a true reflection of our core values and our goal to bring inclusive fitness to all,” Drengberg said.

“The EoS company culture clearly aligns with all that CAF is trying to accomplish and we see from the top leadership down, EoS team members are engaged and excited about our partnership as an extension of the work they do daily to make fitness accessible and affordable for anyone looking to improve their health and overall wellbeing,” Entwistle added.
