Boston loved Brendan!
CYBEX is a global company. You can find our equipment in health clubs in Norway, professional sports team facilities in England, and in resort spas in Asia—not to mention across all 50 States here at home. We truly are the world’s premium fitness equipment manufacturer.
However, if you visit our facility in Medway, just outside of Boston, you’ll find not only state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies but also a heck of a lot of New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins gear. The New England area is known for its devoted, perhaps some would say fanatical, fans—and a number of them work for us in Massachusetts.
As a result it isn’t surprising that at CYBEX’s Medway facility a growing group of employees have been pulling for Brendan Donovan on The Biggest Loser—much like they pull for their beloved Sox and Pat’s.
Brendan hails from West Roxbury and works as a teacher and coach at Jeremiah E. Burke High School in Dorchester, all in the heart of Red Sox Nation and Patriot Territory—our backyard. Brendan teaches special education and established an after-school wellness program for kids. On the show he has been a great, tough competitor and made amazing progress in his own personal journey.
However, at the his last weigh in he fell just below the red line. Needless to say we were sad to see him leave the show.
To be sure, we are pulling just as hard for all the finalists. They all have great stories and it has been inspiring to watch them over the course of the season. Plus, we feel a special tie to all of these amazing people—after all, their journeys have literally been powered by CYBEX. We can hardly wait to see who ends up the ultimate winner. Nevertheless we know that all of them are the real winners for what they’ve accomplished.
Although Brendan didn’t make it into the final he is a true local star just as much as Tom Brady, Paul Pierce or Milan Lucic. Don’t stop now—and feel free to swing by CYBEX Medway to see your fans any time.
