iFit recently donated one million medical-grade surgical masks to the state of Utah. The company is a leader in interactive, connected fitness technology.
“We’re proud to have iFit Interactive Fitness headquartered in Utah, and I sincerely appreciate iFit’s ability and desire to be part of the solution to COVID-19, both for the state of Utah and the nation,” said Gov. Gary R. Herbert. “We are immensely thankful for this donation. These masks will provide critical PPE for our frontline workers as we move forward into the stabilization phase of our Utah Leads Together Plan.”
In addition to the masks, iFit will also provide a box of masks to each of its 1,400 employees. iFit will also provide an additional supply of masks to the City of Logan, Logan Regional Hospital, Logan police and fire departments, Utah State University, Cache Valley Hospital, local nursing homes, and essential workers in the Logan, Utah area where the company has its international headquarters.
“Helping people stay healthy is what we do every day in our business,” said Scott Watterson, CEO and chairman of iFit. “We know exercise provides real physical and mental health benefits to people during a pandemic. Masks also provide a real health benefit. Donating these medical-grade surgical masks is a natural extension of our mission to help people lead healthy and balanced lives. We invite other Utah companies to continue to assist their communities where and how they can,” Watterson said.
