Students, teachers and staff at Pryor Public Schools now have more opportunities to exercise. Thanks to a Carolyn M. White PEP Grant, the school was able to transform an old wrestling room into a state-of-the-art fitness center. SCIFIT worked with Pryor on this project from the beginning and we were honored to be part of their vision. See their story here:
All of us were saddened by the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy last week. SCIFIT came across a benefit outreach called Socks for Sandy.
Socks for Sandy, powered by a group of creative bloggers, was started by Laura Kuhlmann, a resident of Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy in her area. What they need most are socks, gloves, mittens, hats, and new packages of underwear, for babies up to the elderly and every shape and size and age in between. These can be sent to:
Socks for Sandy
P.O. Box 520
Little Egg Harbor, NJ 08087

We know the victims will appreciate your support!
The World Congress on Active Ageing was held at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow, Scotland last month. Only hosted every four years, it brings together the world's leading experts in Active Ageing and others who understand the needs for this growing market.
The congress, like many others, was a mix of seminars and workshops and drew in approximately 1,200 delegates each day. There were 50 stands but SCIFIT was only one of three of fitness equipment suppliers while partnering with HUR.
This elevated the markets brand awareness for SCIFIT, those understanding the benefits of SCIFIT's products and programs as a cardio specialist supplier. With features like low starting resistance, easy access and different seating options, SCIFIT equipment provides opportunities for people of all ages to stay active.
Maybe we are a bit biased, but this is the coolest video we've seen in a while. Not only does it feature Olympic Gold Medalist, Ryan Lochte, but he is using the SCIFIT PRO1 Upper Body Exerciser.
This really isn't surprising in a sport like swimming where upper body is king. In fact, it makes perfect sense to use the PRO1 to strengthen and condition shoulders, arms, chest and upper back. That's why we make it.
We are also not surprised to see our products being used by elite athletes. Our products are tough and durable, just like the athletes who use them. No, we are not surprised, but we are more than a little flattered.
Want to know the best part? Ryan Lochte is not a paid spokesperson for SCIFIT, neither is the University of Florida. Why do they use it? Well, we can't say for sure, but we are guessing it has a lot to do with results...and gold medals.Click here to see the video

Friday, August 10 SCIFIT enjoyed a family night out at the Tulsa Drillers. The Drillers are the Double A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies in Tulsa and play at ONEOK Field. The Tulsa professional baseball club is the oldest professional sports franchise in the city of Tulsa. Professional baseball began in Tulsa in 1905 and has now been played for over 100 years.
Thankfully the weather cooperated for us and we were able to sit out on the Tiki Deck and enjoy our hamburgers, hot dogs and other goodies! The Oklahoma heat previously was too much to handle most days so the welcomed “chill” of somewhere in the 90’s was awesome for us. The kids played and enjoyed cookies, adults enjoyed the game, food and the fireworks show after. Take a look at some of our pictures and meet some of our SCIFIT family members.
