Sponsors and Supporters


The Community is our foundation. 

The Catoosa County Chamber of commerce has been the very best thing for Lionhearts Fitness.

Our Leads Group LOOP is unmatched in support.

The Chattanooga Chamber and the Hamilton Chamber are both valuable assets also.






We must thank both:

Eastridge Parks and Recreation                                                    Catoosa County Parks and Recreation

Adam Wilson and Shawna Stiles                                                    TAmy Johnson

Both are amazing supportive assets of Lionhearts Fitness, most assuredly,  Lionhearts Fitness Camps


Thanks to our community we have enough baseball bats and mitts for our youth! We are still gathering other sporting equipment but we have received fishing poles from fellow LOOP member Dr. Patrick McCarver, Baseball equipment from Tori Robinson.

Other great donations that have come in:

Boxes of books from Amy Johnson, which the youth already grabbed up, and took home.

Board games and chess sets, which the youth just love (we started with one and now have 6, with all being used often!)

Much Facility Equipment from Tommy Davidson and Maryann, including rings, pull up bar and so much more.

We needed a wagon and canopy and the local SPORTS ACADEMY kept promising but after many months wouldn’t follow through. Our friend Doris White wouldn’t have it!  She immediately, after hearing what happened, went out and bought us BOTH. Then donating them to help us . OH how we have used them, time and time again.

We have a WISHLIST on AMAZON and have rec’d many items and need so much more.



It takes a village.

Mr. Burch, a dear friend and a lover of Rock and Roll!

~shell needs to get him to a rock concert pretty soon, especially after all the countless hours he has put in to make the Lionhearts Fitness Center safe and electrified! He loves the youth, the community and most importantly, his very athletic and talented family.
