Obesity isn’t just a personal problem. It is a national and a global problem. - Bedros Keuilian, Founder of Fit Body Boot Camp
La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
Fitness boot camp franchise Fit Body Boot Camp has put together a national campaign to bring awareness to the growing obesity problem in America. The 1,000 lb. Meltdown Challenge’s goal is to get local residents of participating cities to lose 1,000 pounds in 28 days. The 1,000 pound Meltdown Challenge starts on May 14th and all La Jolla participants who sign-up at Fit Body Boot Camp La Jolla will be charged $20 for the 28-day program, and all proceeds will be donated to the Tomorrow Project charity.
“The goal is to inspire and motivate residents to lose weight as part of Fit Body Boot Camp’s Vision to expose and engage twenty percent of the world’s population to a healthy and fit lifestyle by 2020,” says Bedros Keuilian, co-founder of Fit Body Boot Camp. “Obesity isn’t just a personal problem. It is a national and a global problem.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States. More than one-third of the U.S. adults are obese, and approximately 17% of children and adolescents are obese. A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that people with close bonds set a great example for one another; if they gain weight together, they can also lose it together.
"Getting fit and staying fit is much easier than people think. With the right tools and a good trainer, a woman can shave years off of her appearance...all while feeling more energetic, experiencing more confidence, and being happier overall,” says Natalia Muntean, owner of Fit Body Boot Camp La Jolla. “And I think these benefits alone will change someone's life dramatically."
The initial roll-out of the 1,000-pound Meltdown Challenge will be on May 7th and in the following cities: La Jolla, CA; San Clemente, CA; Santa Clarita, CA; Fort Collins, CO; Orlando, FL; Pinellas Park, FL; Tampa, FL; Hudson, OH; Solon, OH; Takoma Park, MD; Sewell, NJ; Albuquerque, NM; Deer Park NY; and Portland, OR. Additional cities and start dates will be announced shortly. For more information about the 1,000 lb. Meltdown Challenge, go to http://www.fitbodybootcamp.com/1000PoundMeltdown.html.
