Fitness Program Promotes Healthy Habits Through Basketball


Jermaine Collier, Program Manager of S.A. Mobile Fitness, a program of United Charitable Programs (UCP), is striving to make a healthier tomorrow for our nationís children by teaching kids the positive outcome of an interactive healthy lifestyle.

San Antonio, TX, June 22, 2013 --(PR.com)-- With a dramatic increase in obesity in America, fitness experts and social entrepreneurs, like Jermaine Collier, are trying to find ways to encourage a healthier community. Collier’s charitable program, S.A. Mobile Fitness, will be hosting various events that promote physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.

On July 13 and 14, 2013, he will be hosting a basketball skills and conditioning competition through S.A. Mobile Fitness called “Hoops for Health.” The event will be held at the Lou Hamilton Community Center from 5PM to 9PM. The purpose of the event is to promote physical activity and a healthier lifestyle through the game of basketball. Collegiate basketball players, along with other volunteers, will be in attendance to help motivate participants.

Collier hopes that this event, along with future events hosted by S.A. Mobile Fitness, will bring people together and help create a healthier community. “A fit community produces a future generation of a fit society,” Collier said. He believes that the key to fighting obesity and Type 2 Diabetes is to participate in physical activity at least three days a week, along with eating a balanced diet.

Through S.A. Mobile Fitness, Collier aims to conduct fitness clinics that raise awareness of the harm of poor physical fitness with a special focus on preventing obesity and Type 2 Diabetes. Money raised at Hoops for Health will be used to purchase equipment that will assist Collier’s mobile fitness program. All donations to S.A. Mobile Fitness are tax-deductible.

Registration for Hoops for Health is $20 per player, but S.A. Mobile Fitness will offer a discounted registration price of $10 per player if you sign up with three additional people. Participants must be in good health and at least 13 years or older. You can register online no later than July 10th at: www.JCUltimateTraining.com. Space is limited.

Collier is an expert in fitness and sports with a bachelor’s degree in Sports and Exercise Science from Greensboro College located in North Carolina. He also has six years of professional experience as a physical trainer and is committed to daily physical activity himself.

S.A. Mobile Fitness is sponsored by UCP, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit fiscal sponsor of active charitable programs. Through UCP, Collier is able to focus solely on his program’s charitable mission, rather than on the administrative burdens that an independent nonprofit can have. For more information about S.A.
