KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Co-owners of Supplement Superstores KC, Jeff Wasserman and Kyle Comes, recently posted a video on Instagram asking for people in the community to tag local gym owners and personal trainers who have been affected by the area’s stay-at-home orders.
"We had over 600 tags on the post,” Wasserman said. “We made a list of over 275 different fitness community people.”
The pair have several ideas on how they would like to help the fitness community and decided to start by delivering care packages and handwritten letters.
"In those care packages are going to be things like protein powder, protein bars, things that gym owners and trainers would normally buy that might not have the money to do so right now," Comes said.
One business owner impacted by the stay-at-home order, Spencer Nash, told 41 Action News he is grateful for the kindness shown by Wasserman and Comes.
"Unfortunately, for my wife and I, it caused us to shut down our fitness facility, as well as our shirt-printing store so it has had a pretty big impact on us," Nash said.
Wasserman and Comes said their efforts will not stop at the care packages and written notes.
