Kristin Anderson, CEO of FITGMR, stated, “The NACL is a perfect fit for FITGMR.  Together, we are able to impact the collegiate space in meaningful ways from health and wellbeing, to league play to coaching support.  David and his team are top notch and we are excited about the various ways we can grow together.”
