Grant Garretson and Tucker Zehner, members at our SportsFit gym in Leakesville MS, have been dedicated in their training for the Marines since the day we opened our doors.  Day in and day out, they’ve always given 100%.  Grant and Tucker are two of the most deserving and respectful young men we have ever seen, and we’re so proud of them and all they will accomplish in the Marine Corps!

Grant is a 17 year old, Senior at Greene County High School and will receive his diploma in May.

“I chose to enter the Marine Corps because I wanted to be apart of an elite organization that represented something bigger than myself. I wanted to take part in something that showed honor, courage, commitment, and selflessness. It also seemed like a good way to start off at 17 and will hopefully help me provide for a family one day, God willing.  I chose SportsFit because it was a local gym with good equipment and very helpful staff members. I would recommend the gym to anyone I know.”

Tucker is a graduate of Greene County High School and is 18 years old.  He boarded a plane today for Boot Camp on Paris Island.

“I joined the military because its always been something I’ve wanted to do since I was little and I joined the marines because they’re the best. Also chose sportsfit because its local convenient and they have a very friendly staff!”

Thank you, Grant and Tucker, for serving our country!
