Well…another long 24 hours has come and gone and One to 1 Fitness is honoured to have been able to do our small part in helping make our community just a little bit better and a little more fit.
June 5th (through June 6th) saw us host our 3rd annual 24 hour Train-a-thon for charity, this year in support of the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program…a nationally based organization that helps children in financial need participate in sports. The program, represented by names such as Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks, supports activities including hockey, swimming, soccer, baseball, karate, ballet and gymnastics and has assisted almost 1 million children since its inception.
So……how does this crazy day work? For a full 24 hours, all trainers on staff donate their time in half-hour time slots. Members and non-members are invited to make a minimum donation in order to “purchase” a training session with a trainer. Being one hundred percent charity based, all proceeds go directly to the cause…even food, coffee and other forms of sustenance that are scientifically engineered to fuel hard working bodies for 24 hours (insert shameless plug for Tim Horton’s donuts here!) are all donated by clients, families and friends. Local businesses even participate by donating items that get put up for auction.
The event (which has now seen One to 1 Fitness raise over $30,000 for charity over the last 3 years,) has consistently grown in new and exciting ways every year, with participants getting more and more creative on how they can help, how they can keep the day fun and light and how to keep their trainers awake all night, (including a 2A.M. Zumba Dance class!
The day brings a unique sense of community…families come and participate together, games are played, and the trainers are pushed to complete tasks of physical fitness. The air is light and fun. Our resident photographer captures sweaty smiles, high fives, hugs and celebrated friendships. But most of all, he captures a community. He captures hundreds of people coming together to support the greater cause. A family, working together to do good by others. He captures what is, One to 1 Fitness.
A very big thank you to all of our sponsors, partners and contributors:

April – 2015 Well it’s that time of year again!
It’s our annual charity Train-a-thon!!
Here at One to 1 Fitness and Red Deer FBBC we love to support getting kids active and loving life! So it’s our mission at this years’ TRAINATHON to do just that 🙂
This year we are supporting the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Program that gives the gift of sport to kids and parents that can’t afford to enroll their kids in organized sports.
We are opening our doors and schedules on FRIDAY JUNE 5TH @ 6AM TOSATURDAY JUNE 6TH @ 6AM for all of you to book in! You can pledge to workout, talk nutrition, get help with injuries, hang out, eat, chat, play cards and anything that you and your trainer would like to do with your pledged time!
We ask for a minimum of a $20 donation per half hour time slot to donate to THE CANADIAN TIRE JUMPSTART PROGRAM 🙂 Help us reach our goal of $15,000! Bring your friends and family because there will be plenty of things to do that day for you and the kids. We also have silent auction items and 50/50 tickets for an awesome gift basket from your local Red Deer businesses.
Keep in mind a couple things…If you have a normal training spot please confirm with your trainer you would like to donate to keep it 🙂 Also bootcamp schedule stays the same for Friday but the Saturday 9am – 11am bootcamps will be cancelled. We will definitely need to catch up on our sleep 😉
Call 403 341 4041 to book in or contact your favourite trainer to secure a spot in their schedule 🙂 We are accepting Cash or Cheque and if you would like to use a Credit Card you can visit this link- https://secure.ctjumpstart.ca/
