‘This is a great moment’: C.R. Anderson Middle School opens $100,000 fitness center

The National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils and Gov. Greg Gianforte unveiled a new $100,000 fitness center Tuesday morning at C.R. Anderson Middle School.

To the roar of about a thousand students packed into the school gymnasium, foundation Chairman Jake Steinfeld, of “Body by Jake” fame, announced the “no strings attached” gift.

The foundation has installed these fitness centers at schools in 42 states, and this year brought the group to Montana. 

“We don’t always have great moments, but this is a great moment,” Steinfeld told the hundreds of children.

Gianforte was also on hand at the event to congratulate the school.

“I learned more playing football than I did in the classroom,” he told the students.

The foundation touts its use of public and private partnerships with corporations such as Coca-Cola and Nike. No tax dollars or state funds were used to pay for the fitness center, Steinfeld noted.
