NOPD Receives Generous Donation from Prime Fitness RX

Members of the Eighth District Police Station recently received a generous donation of full gym equipment from the owners of Prime Fitness RX.

On May 30, 2019, New Orleans entrepreneurs Sacha and Mark Owens held a reception to culminate National Police Week. During the reception, the Owens donated fitness equipment to the NOPD to create a full-service fitness center inside of the Eighth District Police Station.

The new equipment consists of cardio machines, free weights, fitness accessories, strength training equipment and more.

According to Deputy Chief Christopher Goodly, the new fitness equipment will be a great addition to the Eighth District.

“The donation of this gym equipment will increase fitness opportunities for our officers in the Eighth District. It is very important that we equip our officers with the resources they need to become better mentally and physically.”

Prime Fitness RX is Louisiana’s first eGym, and one of only four eGyms in the U.S. An eGym is a state-of-the-art training concept that provides fully electronic exercise machines for all major muscle groups.

Prime Fitness RX provides gym services 24 hours a day, seven days a week with several fitness options available. Their studio is located on 201 Saint Charles Avenue and 1615 Poydras Street, 3rd Floor, DXC Technology Building.
