Help B.C. kids by participating or donating to the A4K Fitness Challenge
I blogged about this event last year and I can’t believe it’s almost time to do it again. I think I’ve recovered enough from the 1000 rep challenge to give it another go.
This unique fundraiser put on by Athletics for Kids (or A4K) has participants go through one of four tough workouts. The money raised helps pay the costs of deserving children to get involved in sports.
Getting kids active in athletics has many benefits beyond the field or court so I’m glad to be a part of this event.
The challenge is to complete a certain number of repetitions of specific bodyweight exercises. This year A4K has developed four workouts to choose from, so all fitness levels are accommodated.
The easiest of the workouts consists of completing 250 reps. The next level is 500 reps, then comes the 750-reps workout and, finally, there’s the granddaddy of them all, the 1000-rep challenge. This is the workout I’ll be doing.
Basically all the workouts share the same exercises but you just do more of them in the higher levels. Here’s a video to show you all the exercises.
The challenge runs during the first week of November. You can help out in a number of ways:
Please help Athletics for Kids in their worthy endeavour to help as many kids as they can. We thank you for your support!
