Huntsville, AL, November 12, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- With the epidemic of obesity manifesting itself more clearly with each passing year, public health officials are baffled at how to fight the problem.
Local fitness and health expert Joe Martin, owner of Huntsville Adventure Boot Camp, has the answer: make workouts meaningful.
Joe Martin is introducing a novel way to get people moving by motivating them with donations to Manna House from his own pocket. He is holding a charity workout on Thanksgiving morning at 8:30am at Weatherly Elementary School (1307 Cannstatt in south Huntsville) and donating $10 for every newcomer and a can of food for every current client that attends.
Joe Martin explains, “I want to motivate my clients to bring along friends and challenge their fitness because that always motivates people to get moving. I am tying it to supporting a charity so we can all support a great cause together. It’s really the best way.”
“I am expecting high numbers because people care not only about their own fitness but also about the greater good. Linking the two is a great way for people to get over any inhibitions they might have for working out and being active.”
Inactivity has been linked with a plethora of health concerns, including obesity and cardiovascular disease. Huntsville Adventure Boot Camp uses large group metabolic training to create a social atmosphere and accelerate fat burning.
