Motivational health and fitness brand, Gym Boss Gears, distributed under the Williams Fitness Clothing (WFC) line, recently went back to the site of its first charitable drive, the Holy for the Innocent Home Sanctuary, to bring more Christmas cheer.

During its first visit in 2014 to the home, located along Heroes Circle in Kingston, the team was able to engage in positive and recreational group rap sessions with the wards while donating needy material and items to children.

This year, the team treated wards and staff with goodies, ice cream and cake, while donating educational material and tools to the children who were present.

To enhance the surprise, this year, the WFC Gym Boss team dressed as self-made supeheroes in stylish capes, colourful masks, bold muscle suits, and carried gadgets.

During the rap session, the Gym Boss Gears team reminded the wards that they were all are superheroes to someone, and that everyone can make a positive impact on the life of others, big or small.

The missionary Sister, who is in charge of the facility, was grateful for the joy and lifted spirits of the children and elderly, some of whom are ailing with severe pain, dealing with speech impediments, and others have various cognitive disabilities.

Children from the nearby communities who often visit the home were quick to take pictures with their new favourite Gym Boss superheroes and share some of the great things they would do if they were to dress as a Gym Boss superhero.

"We do what we do because there is nothing better than to be a blessing to others, being able to inspire, motivate and support the growth of others. This is what our motivational gear provides and what our company represents," said Gym Boss CEO O'Neil Williams.

The brand, since its inception in September 2014, has been growing steadily, stamping its mark as the go-to gear for self-motivation, confidence and strength.

Gym Boss was created by Williams and co-founder Jonhoi Vaughn. The team was especially thankful for the participation of Amanda Williams, Abigail Reid, Julet Kerr, Alicea Williams and Kirk Frankson as superheroes for the day.

The Jamaica Racing Commission and the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission were corporate sponsors for the event. Williams added that his company is already gearing up for 2016 to be a successful year, both as a company and as the team continues its charitable outreach projects.
