Worcester Fitness is launching a brand new fitness challenge...this time with football theme!
 
The Worcester Fitness Fitness Scramble will place you on an NFL team with nine teammates. The season will last six weeks. Each member of the team will earn yardage through cardiovascular equipment activities right here at Worcester Fitness.
 
As the yards build up, so will the scores! Teams score a touchdown after 100 yards are accumulated and recorded by Fitness Scramble Ref, Janine McCarthy!
 
Choose your own equipment:
 
Treadmill activity will generate one yard of forward progress per mile of running/walking. Stairclimbers and Ellipticals will help you7 move the ball down the field a yard for every fifty flights. Hit the rower for one yard for every 1,600 meters.
 
Want to put some points on the board early? Cash in 50 yards and pick up a three point field goal. Extra points are awarded if your teams corresponding NFL team wins their game that week.
 
Fitness Scramble takes guts, determination and plenty of team work!

Worcester Fitness 5K for Planting the Seed Foundation

A Road Race to Benefit Worcester’s Children

In August of 2013, Worcester Fitness held the inaugural Worcester Fitness 5K, which donated all of the net proceeds to Worcester’s 100% volunteer Planting the Seed Foundation.

It was an amazing event and resulted in a donation to Planting the Seed Foundation from the members of Worcester Fitness Nation of nearly $6,000!

This year, we are anticipating an even bigger race day!

Join us on Thursday evening August 14 at Worcester Fitness for our second annual Worcester Fitness 5K! We need your support to make this event as special as last year. Please take a moment to register for the race or even make a small donation.

Joining Worcester Fitness is Worcester’s legendary Beechwood Hotel and Ceres Bistro. Beechwood Hotel has generously agreed to become the races Presenting Sponsor and has made a significant donation to Planting the Seed Foundation.

“Beechwood Hotel is thrilled to begin our new relationship with Worcester Fitness and Planting the Seed Foundation,” said Beechwood Hotel General Manager Mario Cuevas, “We see this as the beginning of an extremely valuable and important partnership.”

sarah copySo, I thought the Worcester Fitness Expo would make for a delightful date night. I read, Members bring a guest free, and I thought, my *boyfriend would just plum love that! And he would have loved it, had his findings not been so fantastically mediocre.

*I would appreciate it if, kindly, no one would mention that I’m blogging about him. He hates when I do that…almost as much as Bob Bourassa does ; )

Anyway, we were both college athletes in the not so distant past, and we both thought our blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol, etc., etc. would be totally under control. I (don’t mind honking my own horn here) joined Worcester Fitness after graduating from college. He gave up exercise (albeit, as a result of his wildly demanding jobs) after college. To say that we’re competitive would be an understatement – and on October 3rd, 2012, I won the Battle of Health hands down.

The Worcester Fitness Expo did not make for the #1 date night of 2012, BUT I think it may have sparked some big changes for 2013. The boyfriend is rising at 5 a.m. to go running, and he’s packed the fridge with foreign substances like spinach and soy milk. I even caught him downloading a cholesterol-tracker app for his iPhone. He looks super, and feels great, and it’s all thanks to you, Worcester Fitness!
