John Paul Ouvrier, The Wizard of Youth, began his career in the fitness industry by selling exercise equipment in Los Angeles nearly 20 years ago. His background as a professional ballroom dancer led to an easy transition of taking proper movement, and translating that to selling exercise equipment.
However, he noticed a growing problem: People didn’t do anything with their old equipment once they stopped using it. More often than not, it could not be sold, or given away.
John’s store and countless others across the United States throw old equipment away every week. John’s co-workers and his brother, Matt would try and give as much away as they could to those in need, but nothing was officially organized. Eventually, there was too much equipment, and the needs of those in need too great to not organize a body of dedicated people to officiate a donation program. Hence, Fitness 4 Charity was born.
A personal note from Mr. Ouvrier
We would like to take this moment to thank the thousands of people over the past 20 years who have donated equipment to my brother and I. You probably don’t know how many children, and adults in need whose lives you have changed for the better. Thanks to your kind gifts, we have been able to put this not for profit company together to continue to sponsor those that would not get another chance at health in such a magnificent way. You are the unsung hero’s today. God bless you.

Best of health to all,
John Paul Ouvrier
