Billy Hofacker, of Total Body Boot Camp (TBBC) Long Island, has announced that his boot camp in Farmingdale recently raised $263 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“Inspired by the 2012 Olympics in London, we held our own version,” Hofacker told the Observer.
Two events took place. One was a 21-day challenge in which clients had to attend sessions on 21 different days throughout the month. Hofacker said, “We know August is tough for people fitness wise with summer activities going on, so we wanted to add an incentive.” The second event was called “TBBC Games” and was a fitness challenge. The winner of the challenge was able to donate all profits to the charity of their choice.
The winning charity was St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
The TBBC has been making strides in the community by helping residents become more fit, holding free events for adults and kids, and donating to support childhood obesity prevention.
“We have plans to impact the community even more in the months and years to come,” Hofacker said. “We truly believe that doing good is the only way to do business.”
Next on the agenda for TBBC is their upcoming Biggest Winner Ultimate Thinner contest. This team weight loss challenge begins Sept. 17. Hofacker said this is a great way to get in shape at a fraction of the cost of personal training while being eligible to win some great prizes.
Total Body Boot Camp is located at 127A E. Carmans Road in Farmingdale. Hofacker said there is an investment required to register for the contest, but much of it goes toward the prizes and other overhead to run the contest.
“This is just a fun way to help our local community to have an opportunity for a happy, healthy and productive life,” explained Hofacker.
