Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) January 06, 2013
Gym Source, America’s leading provider of innovative fitness solutions, has become a sponsor of Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets.
In forming an alliance with Barclays Center—the Brooklyn Nets’ home venue—Gym Source is a valued fitness equipment supplier and service provider to the Nets’ on-site basketball campus.
For Gym Source CEO Richard Miller, the Barclays sponsorship is a natural fit for Gym Source and the Brooklyn Nets: “Barclays Center is the most exciting indoor venue in the country, and we’re delighted that the Nets are training this season on Cybex equipment from Gym Source and benefiting from Gym Source’s expertise.”
Miller explains that for him, the alliance between Gym Source and Barclays Center is as much personal as professional.
“I was raised in Brooklyn,” says Miller. “I went to Ebbets Field when I was very young, and I remember the blow to the neighborhood when the Dodgers left town. Barclays Center is a great resurgence for Brooklyn, and for the entire city. This team and this arena are New York’s own, just like Gym Source. We serve a global clientele, but we’re a 100% American company. Our brand was born, bred and remains based in New York City.”
