Boots, Blankets, and Burpees

What’s the most burpees you’ve ever done?

Thirty burpees, the penalty for missing an obstacle in a Spartan Race, will get your heart going and lungs burning.

One-hundred burpees, done as fast as possible, can be an entire workout.

Three-hundred burpees? Well, that’s not too much fun.

I used to do 300 burpees while watching NFL football Sunday afternoons and I can tell you that after about ninety, you’re questioning your sanity.

What if we tried for more, though.

What if, instead of 300 burpees, I went for 400 or 500?

What about 1,000? I can’t even imagine what 2,000 would feel like.

But I think I’m about to find out.

Without challenges, the human body will soften. We thrive when we push our boundaries, reach goals, and blast personal records. We perform better, we look better, and we feel alive.

Our next Winter Warriors Give Back Final Challenge is almost here.

Last December we finished off the 8-week program by collecting 897 pounds of food and carrying it nearly 11 miles to the Regina Food Bank. This time around, we’ve partnered with the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living.

Donate Clothes Change LivesOver the next three weeks, our Winter Warriors participants will be collecting clothing donations for Community Living.

On Saturday, February 27th we will gather as a team to complete our final challenge. For each item donated, one of our participants will do fifteen burpees.

It sounds simple, but this challenge is guaranteed to push us to our physical and mental limits.

Help us help the community while pushing ourselves to our breaking point.

Don’t leave your old clothing, footwear, or blankets lying around. It’s not worth waiting for a garage sale. There are people in our community that need these things right now.

Interested in donating? Contact us for more information.

Let’s all work together and help change lives.
