The Chamber Welcomes its September and October New Members

Fall was especially busy for the Shawnee Chamber. We had 14 new businesses and organizations join our great chamber community. Take a moment and read a bit about each of them as we are proud to have partners such as these. Say hi to reps from these companies as you meet them at an A.M. Connect, a Luncheon, an After Hours or maybe just somewhere in Shawnee! The chamber thanks the following companies for their investment in our mission and community.

HOTWORX Shawnee is a virtually instructed exercise program created for users to experience the many benefits of infrared heat absorption, while completing a 30-minute isometric workout or 15-min High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) session. As the infrared heat penetrates your body causing you to sweat, the isometric postures further accelerate detoxification by physically removing the toxins from your organs through muscle contraction. The results our users achieve make HOTWORX one of the most efficient 30-minute workout programs in the fitness and beauty industry today! Find out more about HOTWORX Shawnee here!
