For most of us, Monday morning comes too soon. For eight local Realtors, it couldn’t come soon enough.

At 7:15 Monday morning, Realtors representing three local agencies began training for the right to claim victory in the first BodyNetix Agent Challenge, a gruelling test of strength and stamina hosted by BodyNetix Professional Fitness Training.

Participating in the Challenge are Jamie Edwards and Mike Fisher from Royal LePage; Dave Procter, Leah Reichelt, Ronnie Lister and Corey Zaal of RE/MAX; and Ray Francis and Don Hughes representing Coast Realty Group.

For the next six weeks, they’ll participate in twice-weekly group workouts at BodyNetix and complete individual fitness assignments. At the end of the Challenge, each participant will be retested and scored on his or her improvements.

To keep things interesting, each realtor will also compete to raise money for local charities.

“Twenty per cent of each participant’s Challenge fee will be donated to a local charity, and each realtor will also collect individual pledges,” explains Chris Ketch, owner of BodyNetix Professional Fitness Training. “Additional points will be given for the most pledges raised and a final team fitness challenge, with the winner determined by aggregate score.”

In addition to fame and glory, he says, the winner will earn the right to decide which charity will receive 20 per cent of each agent’s fee. (All individual pledges will go to each participant’s charity of choice.)

“Realtors are competitive by nature,” says Ketch. “They’re also great community supporters; it really was the charity aspect that got them interested in this, and the opportunity for some friendly competition between offices.”

It’s the first of what Ketch hopes will be many similar industry fitness challenges at BodyNetix.

“Fitness challenges are everywhere in the fitness industry right now,” he explains. “They’re a great way to put co-workers in a completely different situation and build the sort of camaraderie that only comes when people are pushing their hardest. When they work together toward the common goal of fitness, things like teamwork and improved communication just follow naturally.”

Anyone interested in making a pledge toward a particular Realtor in the Challenge, or even starting their own workplace fitness challenge, can call Chris Ketch at 250-871-2400. To learn more about BodyNetix, visit www.bodynetix.ca.
