Get Fit Have Fun and Make a Difference For Taylor’s Gift

"For it is in giving that we receive" - Francis of Assisi

We all have a desire to help make a difference in the lives of those around us.

From the moment I started my company, Get You In Shape, a big part of my mission was to use fitness as a way to help give back to local charities. For me, using my God-given gifts to help bring a community together for a worthy cause was just one way I could MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

To date, Get You In Shape has raised more than $140,000 for various local charities.

My wife, Cynthia, was a special education teacher at Coppell Middle School East in 2010. That was the year that Taylor Storch tragically lost her life and Taylor's Gift Foundation began. I can still remember where we were when we heard the news.

In 2016, we decided to host a charity event to help raise money for the Taylor's Gift Foundation. 

We had a great turnout, had a great workout. had a lot of fun and also was able to raise money for Taylor's Gift. The 1st Annual Taylor's Gift Charity Workout raise $450 that all went directly to Taylor's Gift Foundation. 

In 2017 and decided to add a CHECK IN FOR CHARITY program with our clients.

It was pretty simple:
1. Our clients check in at "Get You In Shape" on facebook
2. We give Taylor's Gift a donation on their behalf to the Taylor's Gift Foundation

It was just an easy way for Get You In Shape to help carry out our mission to help give back to a local charity and also a way for our fitness community to do something to help give back as well as they checked into Get You In Shape on facebook. 

It was a big hit as we were able to raise $2,192.10 in 2017 just from an accumulation for a lot of people CHECKING IN FOR CHARITY for Taylor's Gift.

On April 1st, 2017 we hosted our 2nd Annual Taylor's Gift Charity Workout and we were able to raise $1,149 for Taylor's Gift. 

To date, $3,801.40 has been  given to the Taylor's Gift Foundation

What started as one man's mission to help MAKE A DIFFERENCE has now helped motivate, inspire and encourage others to do their part in also making a difference.

It has been a blessing to be able to use my time, gifts and talents with fitness help give back to amazing charities like the Taylor's Gift Foundation

If you would like to be a part of helping our mission, please join us at our 3rd Annual Taylor's Gift Charity workout is on April 7th, 2018
