“Fitness Boot Camps” Offer Opportunity to Tone Up for a Good Cause
New Berlin, Wis. – A local fitness entrepreneur is offering residents an opportunity to get in shape for a good cause at a series of workouts starting July 18.
Jeremy Belter, who operates “Fat Blasting Fitness Boot Camps” in New Berlin, will donate all proceeds from his July sessions to The Women’s Center, a Waukesha-based agency that provides a broad spectrum of services to women and families in crisis.
The “boot camps” will be held at Star of Bethlehem Church, 3700 S. Casper Drive, New Berlin. The sessions are scheduled July 18 at 8 a.m., and July 20, 22 and 24, all at 5:30 a.m. Suggested minimum donation is $15 per session.
Each “boot camp” session is an intense 30-minute full-body circuit training regimen. Participants should bring their own exercise mat and dumbbells.
“The purpose of my fitness boot camps has always been to help people improve their physical and mental health,” Belter said. “It’s great to add another positive focus by benefiting The Women’s Center, which offers so much valuable assistance to troubled families and victims of domestic violence.”
Belter will boost the fund-raising power of the events by matching 50 cents on each dollar donated, up to $200. More information is available at http://www.bcwap.org/bootcamp_new_berlin_wisconsin.html
Belter, 31, has worked as a fitness boot camp coach for five years. He operates the “Fat Blasting Boot Camps” under the auspices of his company, Fitness4U. His charitable sessions are part of a nationwide initiative titled Boot Camps With a Purpose, started in 2007 by a fitness club owner in Exton, Pa.
The Women’s Center participates in numerous fund-raisers, but none literally as physically strenuous as the fitness boot camps, said Ken Genin, the center’s Director of Development.
“I really appreciate that Jeremy is doing this,” Genin said. “It’s contributions from individuals and businesses such as his that allow The Women’s Center to continue providing services to the community.”
Founded in 1977, The Women’s Center offers a broad array of services to women, children and families affected by sexual assault and domestic violence. The center, located at 505 N. East Ave., Waukesha, will hold its annual Jeri Phillips’ Walk for Family Peace Sept. 12 in Waukesha. More information is available at www.TWCWaukesha.org.
