One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions for those who make them is to get fit and lose weight.
Sounds like an admirable goal but what if you could do that but also help others in the process?
If that interests you, then Aledo’s popular Bearcat Bootcamp may be the answer for you.
Bearcat Bootcamp is a series of one-hour cardio/strength and kickboxing sessions, providing the opportunity to get in shape while supporting the student athletes of Aledo ISD. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the camp are donated back to the student athletes of Aledo ISD.
Never miss a local story.
“Giving back, supporting our kids and our community and staying healthy is what Bearcat Bootcamp is all about,” camp organizers said on their website.
Bearcat Bootcamp was started in 2010 to support the health and well-being of the Aledo community and as a way to raise money for the current and future student athletes of the Aledo Independent School District. As word has spread of the goals of Bearcat Bootcamp, the group has grown for each workout session.
Bearcat Bootcamp members “love the fact that they are able to set and reach their fitness goals in their own backyard and that all the money they donate to the organization for these workout sessions goes directly back to their children, all AISD student athletes, and other charitable organizations in Aledo.”
Fitness trainers have a combined 35 years of experience and all sessions are held indoors at the Aledo High School Indoor Football Facility.
In 2015, three sessions will be offered:
▪ Session 1: January – April; Session 2: May – August; Session 3: September – December.
Days and times are Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.; Saturdays at 8 a.m. and Sundays at least one time per month at 2 p.m.
Price per session is $150 for one participant and $250 for two participants.
There is no need for pre-registration, all participants need to do is show up 10-15 minutes prior to any workout with cash or check payable to Bearcat Bootcamp.
