Boot Camp with a Purpose

Boot Camps with a Purpose is led by certified fitness coach Jeremy Belter. He’ll kick our butts into shape!

Don’t worry if you’ve never done a boot camp before or if you’re out of shape. Boot camps are low-impact (meaning little jumping and no running). Strength training and circuits minimize pain and focus on muscle. If I can do this, trust me – anyone can! It’s just 30 minutes of your time, what do you have to lose?

The cost is just $15 for an awesome, kick-butt workout and the money is all donated to Team Challenge. If you can’t make the boot camp but would still like to donate, you can do so online at http://tinyurl.com/napa2010.

Pledge to workout with us 9-10 a.m. May 22. Even if you’re in a different city, you can join us in spirit.

When:  Saturday, May 22, 9-10 a.m.

Where:  Star of Bethlehem Gym

3700 S. Casper Dr.

New Berlin, WI 53151 US

Cost: $15

Fundraiser: Stone Creek Coffee

Hey everyone! I’ve teamed up with Stone Creek Coffee, a Milwaukee company, to sell coffee and raise money for Team Challenge and the half marathon I plan to run/walk in July. I am selling the Custom Blend (that will have a special label on it, created by me!), French Roast, Hazelnut, Organic Fair Trade, Cream City Blend (regular and decaf) along with Hot Chocolate.

$5 from each pound of coffee and $3 from each tin of hot chocolate will go directly toward my goal of raising $3800 for Crohn’s and Colitis Research.

I am running this fundraiser through March 7. If you’d like to place an order, click here or send me an e-mail (me-at-losingitwithoutlosingme.com). If you live in the Milwaukee area, I will personally deliver the coffee to you! If you’re not in the Milwaukee area, contact me to work something out.
