Outdoor FitCamp on June 6 will benefit KidSport Comox Valley

BodyNetix and Rice Toyota Courtenay teaming up to present event at Simms Park

Saturday, June 6 is National Move for Health and Fitness Day and BodyNetix Professional Fitness Training and Rice Toyota Courtenay are celebrating with an On-location Outdoor FitCamp with proceeds going to KidSport Comox Valley.

The Outdoor On-Location FitCamp is Saturday, June 6 at Simms Millennium Park starting at 9:30 a.m. and will run for about an hour.

“BodyNetix FitCamp is a fantastic way to be active and get into shape. Our clientele includes people of all ages and abilities, we offer over 27 different classes per week and the professional trainers on our staff cater to the needs of the individuals in a fun and team like group environment,” explains Megan Penney, co-owner of BodyNetix.  “We are excited to be offering this On-location FitCamp with the proceeds of the drop-in fees going directly to KidSport Comox Valley.”

KidSport Comox Valley was formed in 2008 and is one of over 40  chapters in B.C.  The local organization is 100 per cent volunteer. KidSport believes no child should be left on the sidelines and all children should have the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports.

KidSport provides financial grants (up to $300) to remove financial barriers that prevent kids from playing organized sport. In 2015, 61 children in the Comox Valley were proudly sponsored to participate in a sport of their choice. All donations and money raised in the Comox Valley supports local young athletes.

Andrew Rice of Rice Toyota Courtenay has been a member of BodyNetix for the last three years.  “I believe the BodyNetix FitCamp is the most effective way to get into shape, gain overall strength and improve cardio.  June of 2014 I had my femur reconstructed from a previous injury, as soon as I was able to start a fitness program again I have been going to classes twice a week,  and now, eight months later I am in better physical shape than I was prior to the surgery.” Rice Toyota is proud to be paired up with BodyNetix to support KidSport at this event.

“I would like to welcome all past and current members as well as new people to try out our Outdoor FitCamp on Saturday,” says Penney. “We have a great class planned including music and smoothie bar for after the workout. Please contact myself at 250-871-2400 or admin@bodynetix.com to register or for more details.”
