FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CrossFit Rebels Hosts a Monthly Free “Community Workout” Called “Commit2B:____” to Promote Family Fitness in a Fun and Challenging Environment. Each month the workout has a new theme. January was “Commit2B:Fit”. This month is “Commit2B:Heart-Healthy” in honor of the CDC and American Heart Association’s Heart Month.
CrossFit Rebels will host a free community-based workout the first Saturday of every month at 10:00am, tailored and scalable to all levels of fitness. Families (children age four and up) of all ages and fitness levels will be educated and coached on proper movement form, and will work through a fun, team-oriented workout that will stimulate interest in and compliance with health and fitness.
February’s “Commit2B:Fit” is the second of 12 months of workouts tailored toward families in our community to embrace the concept that fitness can be a fun, family-oriented activity. Each month will have a different theme: March’s looks to be “Commit2B:Strong” in to illustrate how strength provide a solid, safe structure, good posture, strong bones and a higher metabolism!
CrossFit Rebels (CFR) is a 10,000 square foot facility located at 2077 Sunnydale Blvd in Clearwater, FL, Pinellas County. The Commit2B:Heart-Healthy Workout will start at 10:00am and last approximately an hour. Coaches and trainers including CrossFit Coaches, Personal Trainers, Physicians and Therapists, will be on site to coach, encourage and motivate participants. At the end of each workout, participants will leave with three additional workouts that can be done without equipment, at a local park or back yard. The goal is to keep participants active throughout the month until the next Commit2B: workout.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture. Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010 currently reports that less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day. According to the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, only one in three children are physically active every day. New reports state “children are sitting an average of nine hours per day between school, television watching and other sedentary activities. Their shoulders are rounded forward, their femurs rotate medially and their bodies are basically locked in an upright fetal position.” (Source: Fit-pro.com July-August 2013, Mike Koskiniemi, MS, CSCS, NSCA-CPT).
CrossFit Rebels (CFR) is a fitness facility focusing on functional movements presented in a constantly varied format. This format lends to higher levels of interest and competitiveness, leading to better compliance with an exercise program. The Coaches and Trainers at CFR are highly educated and credentialed in training kids and adults. The concept of “Commit2B:Heart-Healthy” for February is an effort to bring families together in a skilled but comfortable and fun environment where they can train (workout) together and experience the “fun” in “functional fitness”.
