On Saturday, June 24th we held our first FREE bootcamp (I much prefer the term group workout) in Trinity Bellwoods Park in Toronto. Trainer Satch took the lead and I kicked in on some form tips, and despite my injury we managed to have a GREAT workout packed with core and of course, a ton of fun.
The first bootcamp was to generate awareness for local charity Stella's Place who provide resources and a space for young adults, ages 16-29, to aid in caring for their mental health. We raised $85, and Pure Transformation kicked in for a total of $325 for the charity.
We chose this charity this time around because we want to keep fitness focused on the tremendous good it does for BOTH physical and mental health. It's easy these days to get lost in trends and pressure, but wellness changes lives in the most dramatic ways. We are going to remain loud about these benefits and do as much as we can to generate awareness about these important ties.
On top of having perfect weather, the best spot for an outdoor workout, we had a solid team turn up. Thank you to everyone who came out!
Our next group workout for charity will include healthy snack samples and will be held same place, same time on July 22nd. Join us!
Charity announcement will be made soon. Thank you for your kickass attitude and support!
