Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 17, 2008
Operation Boot Camp will continue to help change local parks and greenspaces - one push-up at a time - this October with its second annual The Park Challenge and Phat Phair. Operation Greenspace is an eco-fitness program that leverages the talented and dedicated Operation Boot Camp team to highlight parks as fitness locations and inspire people to get out and enjoy their local parks and greenspaces. Operation Greenspace came about through Operation Boot Camp's desire to give back to the parks they enjoy every day.
The 2nd Annual The Park Challenge - A Creative 5k will be held on Saturday, October 4th, 2008 at Piedmont Park. The Park Challenge is a creative 5k that includes true Operation Boot Camp style stations that will be push runners' normal workout routine. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Piedmont Park Conservancy. To register for the event visit: active.com or email parkchallenge5k(at)operationbootcamp.com for more information.
The 2nd Annual Phat Phair will be held on Saturday, October 11th, 2008 at Atlanta Kick Studio and will benefit Park Pride. Power Pilates will begin at 7a.m. followed by Kickboxing and an urban style Operation Boot Camp workout at 8 a.m. Personal Chef, Leslie Flight, will be at hand to give you tips and recipes for an Operation Boot Camp style meal plan. The Body Fat Test Clinic will be available by appointment only throughout the day. For more information or to register email phatphair(at)operationbootcamp.com.
Operation Greenspace focuses on fundraising, preserving those areas that promote physical activity, and other projects that benefit the park. Operation Boot Camp is proud to work with the Piedmont Park Conservancy, Park Pride, the Grant Park Conservancy, friends of Candler Park and other parks and greenspaces organizations to help promote outdoor health and fitness.
Operation Boot Camp came about more than seven years ago with an ex-army veteran's desire to get into military "bootcamp shape". Operation Boot Camp was created to have the intensity of a military boot camp, with the ideals of positive reinforcement and fun. Operation Boot Camp does this while catering to people of all starting fitness levels, from elite athletes to those that have not exercised in years. Operation Boot Camp combines co-ed outdoor workouts, a nutrition regimen and persistent accountability in order to challenge - and surpass - the boundaries of every boot camper's comfort zone. The results are life-changing: a fit, toned body, increased self-confidence, and improved strength and endurance. Operation Boot Camp currently runs camps throughout Atlanta and expects to extend to many more cities in the future.
