Kind Gym Manager Surprises Member With Down Syndrome With New Sneakers

CJ’s face said it all, as Planet Fitness manager Daniel Cote kneeled down to help him take at step in the right direction at the gym.

CJ, who has Down syndrome, arrived to work out wearing boots instead of sneakers. So Daniel got CJ’s size from his caretaker and went to a sports store to buy him the proper footwear. He came back with a brand new pair of Under Armour sneakers for him.

Daniel says he knows CJ really enjoys coming to the gym, and he just wanted to support him in efforts to live a healthier life.

Thanks to a love for fitness, these two are beginning to grow a strong friendship together.
