The vision of a gym for employees of Freeport Container Port, Grand Bahama Airport Company and Freeport Harbour Company became reality last week, as the facility was unveiled in the Gregory Rodgers Amenities Building at Freeport Container Port.

“People go to the gym for a number of reasons; including, the improvement of their bodies and to feel better about themselves.
“Today that vision is realized, and we open a gym that will be accessible and available at no cost to all employees of FCP, FHC and GBAC,” said Ms. Capron.
CEO Gary Gilbert said that it is certainly the companies’ hope that the gym serves as a source of motivation to help in developing and maintaining healthier bodies and healthier lifestyles among employees.
A feature of the facility will be the team of on duty Gym Attendants/Personal Trainers. Doyle Adderley, Andrew Sweeting, Dwayne Marshall and Philip Pinder will be available to assist employees with their workouts and to ensure safety.
