May 14, 2012
REVERE – Fitness organizations from across Revere are partnering with Revere on the Move and Millions of Muscles to bring resident the first-ever citywide fitness challenge. The challenge starts on Memorial Day, and is designed to get people up and moving while having fun and showcasing all the different ways to get fit in Revere.
“Whether you’re into zumba or bootcamp, strength training or cardio, dancing or taking a walk on the Beach, the Urban Trail or at the Stadium, there will be something for everyone,” said Mayor Daniel Rizzo.
The free, 6-week challenge will run Monday, May 28th through Sunday, July 8th. Activities will be held nearly every day for all ability levels and a variety of interests.
Challenge participants will be competing against each other by earning points for participating in official Challenge events and decreases in their body weight and body fat, with winners in each age range. Event organizers will be tracking individual participation. All the activities will be open to residents of all ages, and fitness levels, with some activities especially designed for seniors. Participants under 18 will only earn points for participation and must be accompanied by a parent at Challenge events.
“This challenge isn’t about having one winner. It’s about seeing as much success in as many people as possible and creating a support network for making positive, healthy choices. We hope the success of this competition will create momentum towards a healthier Revere,” commented Jodi Reath, founder of Millions of Muscles.
“I am truly excited to see so many organizations in Revere volunteering their time and expertise to help pull together the fitness challenge. It is my hope that this will become an annual event and grow in the years to come,” added Rizzo in a realease.
The following organizations have donated staff, space, or equipment for use in the challenge: Millions of Muscles Fitness, the Revere Karate Academy, Dance Revolution, Strength Discovery, Video Promotion and Fitness Services, Revere Recreation, The Studio Dance Complex and Revere on the Move.
In-person registrations and weigh-ins will be held at the Revere Recreation Center at 150 Beach Street on May 24th and 25th from 4 to 6PM and 8 to 9PM. A final day of registration will be held on Saturday, May 27th from 9 to 11AM.
