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.”

jaimeMay is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month We have teamed up with IHRSA (the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association) to promote healthy living with their 10th annual Get Active America! campaign to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyle habits in Americans. Get Active America! could not come at a better time; spring is here (hopefully to stay), and people are looking to get outside and be healthier. Here at Worcester Fitness, we will be promoting a group exercise class each week (at each location) and I challenge you to do something different.  If you take classes, take a different kind of class.  If you don’t take classes, take a class.  If you are not sure what to do to mix it up a little, schedule a fitness profile and orientation and have one of our fantastic staff tell you how to change up your routine.  I guarantee if you do something different each week this month you will feel energized, excited, and yes, probably a little sore!! If you want some advice on how to change it up, do not hesitate to contact me at jaime@worcesterfitness.com.
