EULESS (KRLD) – The clients at the Neuro Fitness gym in Euless aren’t there to lose 20 pounds or experience a miracle — they come for a different reason.

Since 1998, the non-profit facility has catered to physically challenged individuals looking to stay active.

“We’re not going to get you to walk again, but what we are going to do is make you healthy,” said T.J. Griffin, President of the Board at Neuro Fitness.

Griffin broke his neck playing high school football for Trinity High School in Euless 23 years ago and is now a quadriplegic.

The gym services a variety of individuals, says Griffin, including those who have suffered strokes, spinal cord injuries. and an individual infected with the West Nile virus.

The place is full of machines that can be operated from a wheelchair, including weight and cardio machines.

“Without them, I don’t know what I would have done. Without having insurance, they are a definite life-saver,”says Debra Bearfiled, who became paralyzed after suffering from a virus in her lower back.

The gym accepts donations, but does not require clients to pay. To donate, visit the foundation’s website.
