6th Annual ‘Turkey-Busting Workouts’ Help Christian Community Action (CCA) Food Pantry
COPPELL, TEXAS ––Bring a can of food or requested food item and you can work out at Coppell’s leading fitness boot camp from November 26-29th for free. Brad Linder, owner of Get You In Shape Fitness in Coppell, calls these workouts ‘Turkey-Busting’ because they burn off those monstrous calories we all consume on Thanksgiving.
“Our ‘Turkey Busting’ Workouts have been a huge hit since we started this in 2008 and it’s just been a great annual charity event ever since,” says Linder. “Thanksgiving is a great time to show our appreciation for all we have, especially our health.”
The ‘Turkey Busting’ workouts are open to all Coppell area residents, their family, and friends on the Wednesday, Friday and Saturday of Thanksgiving week at 8:00 AM. The cost of admission is just one can of food or food item to fill the pantry at Christian Community Action (CCA) in Lewisville. Food items in high demand this holiday season are: canned meat/fish; cooking oil, baking goods (sugar, flour, cake mixes); Helper mixes (tuna, chicken, hamburger) and canned fruits and vegetables.
“All that we ask is that folks register in advance at www.CoppellThanksgivingWorkout.com so we can be sure we have enough equipment on hand to accommodate everyone,” says Linder. “The workouts are perfect for everyone regardless of age or fitness level – we make everyone feel welcome and customize the workouts so everybody gets what they need. This event will be a great way for the Coppell community to have fun, get fit, and make a difference.”
Trent Smith, the Food Distribution Manager at the Christian Community Action, knows just how crucial food donations are this time of year. “During the holidays our food needs increase dramatically. Without the help of the community and donations, it would cost in excess of $60,000 to run the Holiday Meals Program. This is why help from the community is so vital,” said Smith.
The Get You In Shape Coppell Fitness Turkey-Busting Workouts will be held at Andy Brown Park East in Coppell.
“We anticipate a great turnout because folks enjoy working out with family, friends and friendly people. We’re supporting a great cause; CCA who distributes more than $1.4million of food each year to people in need. It’s a great way to give thanks for our health, our families, friends and good fortune, and help those less fortunate at the same time,” explains Linder.
