Kincardine Fitness Center Promotes 2nd Annual 1,000 lb. Meltdown Challenge to Fight Obesity With All Proceeds Raised Going to Local Charity
Date:5/22/2013

Kincardine, Ontario, CA (PRWEB) May 22, 2013

Following the success of last year’s 1,000 lb. Meltdown Challenge, the fitness franchise Fit Body Boot Camp Kincardine has announced it will be hosting its 2nd Annual 1,000 lb. Meltdown Challenge starting on June 3rd at its Kincardine fitness center located at Davidson Centre 601 Durham Street, Kincardine, Ontario.    

Fit Body Boot Camp’s 1,000 lb. Meltdown Challenge’s goal is to inspire and motivate local community residents to lose a total of 1,000 pounds in 28 days. The fee to participate is discounted to $40 for the 28-day program, with 100% of the proceeds going to a local charity. Fit Body Boot Camp Kincardine will be donating its proceeds to the Kincardine Big Brothers and Big Sister charity.

“Our on-going goal is to continue to inspire and motivate local communities to collectively lose weight,” says Bedros Keuilian, founder and President of Fit Body Boot Camp. “Obesity isn’t just a personal problem. It is a national and a global problem.”

According to the Statistics Canada, obesity levels in Canada and throughout the world continue to increase. It is estimated that more than half of Canadian adults, and approximately 20% of children and adolescents are obese. Globally, obesity levels are also on the rise.

Inspired by rising obesity statistics, Fit Body Boot Camp Kincardine owner Nadine VandenHeuvel decided to launch her first 1,000 pound Meltdown Challenge in September of 2012, attracting a total of 55 members of the Kincardine community who wanted to get fit for a great cause. The 1,000 pound Meltdown Challenge participants ended up melting away 600 lbs and raised an astonishing $1,100 with all proceeds donated to the Kincardine Food Bank.

“I think that last year’s Kincardine 1,000 pound Meltdown Challenge was a huge success with all the money we raised,” says Fit Body Boot Camp Kincardine owner Nadine VandenHeuvel, she adds, “we even went out and bought the food for the Kincardine Food Bank so there would be healthy food options, rather than just writing them a check. We took 10 campers to the grocery store and filled 10 grocery carts full! It was super fun.”

VandenHeuvel says she became a personal trainer to help men and women who were struggling with weight gain and lack of energy. That is how she decided to open up her own Fit Body Boot Camp Kincardine, so she could provide a fun and exciting workout experience for her clients while pushing them to meet their fitness goals.

Pam Wright, a member of Fit Body Boot Camp Kincardine, explains why she decided to join the fitness boot camp, “I wanted a challenge for myself, something that I could proudly say, ‘I've accomplished this!’ Little did I know that committing everyday was going to be an actual routine for me. If I don't go, I feel like I'm missing something. I'm glad I stuck with it!”
