On November 27th 2010, Studioz Personal Training, along with almost 50 health clubs, personal training studios and fitness boot camps across Australia will hold Pushups for Charity events in their respective towns involving thousands of participants and generating thousands of dollars each in donations to help children facing life-threatening medical conditions.  When the dust settles, we hope to collectively raise nearly $200,000 for Make-A-Wish® Australia and kick-start a mini fitness revolution at the same time.

My goal is two-fold.  I want to help Australian children facing life-threatening medical conditions, and I want to engage our local community in a fun way to get fit.  I’ve engineered this to leverage the viral, friends-telling-friends capability of the internet.  It starts with our clients telling their friends via email, and then their friends telling more people.  Combine that with the media telling this story, and we’re confident we can meet our ambitious participation and fundraising goals.

There’s no denying that when people get engaged in a positive and rewarding activity like fitness, they feel better, perform better and frankly, are generally nicer and more enjoyable to be around!  And that’s what we all want for our town and our country.

The way this works is that people agree to sponsor an individual by donating fifty cents to one dollar for every pushup that person does in 90 seconds at our event.  All participants and donors are rewarded with a valuable home study fitness program we’ve designed based on my 22 years of experience and helping Pakenham residents get in great shape.  Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate or donate.

I have a video at www.PakenhamPushupsForCharity.com that explains everything and you can sign up there.  So please jump on board and support this very worthy cause.
