Help FIFTH QuarterPerformance Help Keep EastTx Fit

Great Day. My name is Coach Ivorie. I’m a native of Lufkin, Texas. As a former athlete and first generation entrepreneur I have lived my dream of developing a business brand that seeks to serve and encourage wholistic wellness. In 2017, I founded FIFTH Quarter Performance, a faith based fitness and performance brand designed to enrich the lives of young athletes, competitive athletes and the everyday athlete; holistically. 

The last four years I’ve had the pleasure of partnering with a local gym. This partnership has afforded me the opportunity to grow and expand services to our youth in and beyond sports. However, recently we unexpectedly received news that the gym would be closing. This has been challenging to say the least. With so many families invested in the services of FIFTH Quarter Performance we are in a peculiar position. With the uncertainty of the gym ownership, FIFTH Quarter Performance has found itself in need of community support. This is crunch time for FQP. With the gym closing Feb. 28th, 2023, we have a small time frame to transition to keep the operation of FQP going. I’m reaching out to my community and circle of friends to help me make this possible. My passion for the youth, and love for the East Texas community compels me to wake to ensure we can continue to serve our purpose in the community. FQP is a family!! 

With your generosity we will be able to start much needed renovations, purchase equipment, upgrade our facility, and continue serving our youth and the local community. Your contribution will help us create a welcoming and inclusive environment where everyone is encouraged to grow and thrive. We believe with the power of community, and faith, we can keep the gym open to be a place of inspiration and upliftment for all who enter.
