What’s up my faithful, fitness followers! John here and I’m back with both a fun and serious blog post. For those of you that don’t know, our San Jose Bootcamp and Personal Training Studio, Fast Action Training, will be partaking in our 2nd Annual Pushups for Charity Challenge. We’ll be getting together on Saturday, May 18th from 9am-11:30am and rocking as many pushups as we can in 90 seconds to benefit the Boot Campaign and all the men and women of our armed services. Not to mention special guests of Andrew Paul, a former Navy Seal AND Gwen Lammers, the Director of Operations for the Boot Campaign.
We’ve got an aggressive goal of raising over $25,000 this year and seeing the incredible support we have already received plus all of our “Per Pushup” sponsors and an AWESOME raffle (BC, TRX, 1 night getaways, Massage and….oh yeah, a Signed San Jose Sharks Hockey Stick, I’m feeling confident we’re going to reach it and maybe even break through it! We’re currently at over $8,200 in funds raised.
I wrote a post last year highlighting “What I Push For” and this is the sequel. I’d love to hear about what YOU push for in the comment section below.
PUC is the biggest fundraiser we host all year and while it does take a lot of work to facilitate it is also one of the most rewarding events to be a part of. Raising $25,000 changes lives. It helps provide PTSD counseling to veterans, it helps with job placement, it helps with mortgage free homes and more. And that feels awesome. More importantly though, it feels awesome to give back to those that have sacrificed so much….the men and women of our armed services that put their lives on the line in the name of freedom and have given me the gift of feeling safe at night. The same people that may be disabled for life or might not even make it home.
The people that have allowed me to live my life and pursue my dreams.
So, what do I PUSH for? I push to make an impact in the world because I owe it to these men and women to make the most of my life. I push to create a world where the obesity epidemic is on the decline. I push for changing people’s lives and being a beacon of positivity in a sea of negative vibes. I push for my family…my mom, dad, brothers and sisters. And I push for my lovely wife, Sara, and our baby boy that is on the way. I push for friends and for our awesome clients at Fast Action Training. I push for being a positive role model and living a life of health and fitness. I push for love, respect and treating others the way you want to be treated.
I push for being in control of your own destiny and creating and living the reality you desire.
And this is how we pay homage to men and women that have sacrificed so much. We put things into perspective and we continue to PUSH for what we believe in. This is how we show them that it’s all worth it and that we care.
