|(OCEANSIDE, CA April 26, 2012) – What’s old…is new again. The people of Oceanside are going crazy for pushups as a way to get in shape…and give something back to our wounded warriors. It’s called Pushups for Charity™, and it’s causing quite a stir.
Run by Coach R.B. Berry of Dare to Be Fit, a fitness and personal training studio here in Oceanside, Pushups for Charity is a fun way to get fit and make a difference by supporting the Boot Campaign, an non-profit organization whose mission is to honor and men and women of the U.S. Armed Services who have come back home and could use a hand.
The Pushups for Charity™ Challenge takes place on Saturday, May 19th at 10 AM at Dare to Be Fit, 110 Copperwood Way, Ste M, Oceanside.
Complete information is available at www.PushupsForCharity.com/dare-to-be-fit for those who want to participate, donate or just come out and watch these three teams compete to see who can do the most pushups in 90 seconds.
“Our goal is two-fold,” explains Coach R.B. Berry, owner of Dare to Be Fit, a fitness and personsal training business is running the Pushups for Charity event here in Oceanside, “we want to show our support for our veterans who have sacrificed so much for our freedom and security, and we want to engage our local community in a fun way to get fit.”
“The community is really rising to the challenge – there is a lot of interest in Pushups for Charity. I think that says a lot about our community’s interest in supporting wounded warriors, and is a reflection of how much people appreciate the importance of being healthy,” says Coach Berry.
Pushups are one of the foundational exercises for overall body strength and lean muscle development. Lean muscle increases metabolic activity so the body burns more calories. Additionally, pushups are a simple exercise anyone can do almost anywhere. “Pushups are a gateway exercise,” says , “people feel results quickly, sometimes within days, and that inspires them to do more exercise.”
