Sarasota’s Studio South Fitness Launches Corporate Fitness Challenge
To Benefit United Cerebral Palsy

SARASOTA, Florida – March 12, 2013 – Sarasota-based Studio South Fitness is proud to open registration for the Corporate Fitness Challenge, a progressive six-week fitness, nutrition and training regime to promote team-building and enhance individual physical abilities - all while benefiting United Cerebral Palsy Sarasota Manatee.

The Corporate Fitness Challenge program kicks off on April 6, 2013, as teams of four - with a fifth person as an alternate - are given Functional Movement Screens (FMS) to analyze movement patterns and identify the most effective methods of training. Corporate Teams will each receive two weekly boot camp-style sessions of designated full-body exercises and timed fitness tests supervised by Studio South Fitness specialists and Certified Personal Trainers. Throughout the six-week training period, participants are encouraged to get pledges from family, friends and business associates for extra motivation and added excitement. Prizes will be awarded for the most money raised by team and by individual. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to United Cerebral Palsy Sarasota Manatee.

At the end of the six weeks, on May 18, 2013, all team members will participate in the “The Challenger” event - a workout relay with varying tests of skill and strength culminated from the many exercises the teams participated in throughout the competition. Each obstacle will have a color representing the team that excelled or showed the greatest improvement. Spectators can participate in “The Challenger” by throwing their ‘colors’ on the race runners as they pass.

Registration is open for all participants until March 18, 2013. The entry fee of $300 per team member - plus a $100 charity pledge per team member - includes training, nutritional coaching, facility use, classes, “The Challenger” event, a commemorative sports t-shirt, and a blowout after-party with food, drinks, amazing group and individual awards, and live music. Corporate benefits for this event include the advantages of positive team building, a booth at the event, corporate logo on shirts, and Facebook and web site promotion and recognition.
