GNC Gives NYC Fire Station a Boost

When Hurricane Sandy shook things up along the East Coast last October, firefighters at Lower Manhattan’s Engine 4/Ladder 15 station lost their workout space to flooding during the storm. But three months later, the guys are getting their gym back, thanks to a gift from the makers of some of our favorite sports nutrition products.

GNC teamed up once again with Iovate—their partners the the making of EPIQ (a new line of muscle-building supplements that hits GNC stores on February 1)—to replace the NYC fire station’s water-damaged workout room and stock it with new fitness equipment. The gesture is a way to repay the firefighters for their work in keeping the city safe and strong during Sandy.


The guys at the station also get to give EPIQ a try for free, and we think they’ll be impressed. The products boast cleaner ingredients—no artificial colors or dyes, no undeclared ingredients, and no banned substances.
