October 24, 2017

Hey Rockaholics!

This edition of Down With The Fitness is VERY special, as it gives us a chance to come together for a great workout... At a world-class facility... For an awesome cause!

This Saturday at 9AM, Vigor Ground Fitness and Performance is hosting a Charity Boot Camp to raise money for Zheray Roberts, who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer.

Charity Boot Camp for Zheray this Saturday at 9am ---------------------------------------------------------- At Vigor Ground and Fit Bar Superfood Cafe - Renton we're family and we support our own. This weekend we are going to help a great human being that needs a bit of support while facing some health struggles. . Zheray Roberts, FitBar team member and new intern/coach at Vigor Ground Fitness and Performance is facing some challenges and we're here to help in any way we can - 100% proceeds will go towards Zheray's medical expenses. . For someone that is so committed to helping others feel better and transform, we wanted to come together as a community and help him out so he continue his purpose of coaching - at full strength. . Please read his post below..... . "Hello everyone! My name is Zheray, I'm a 23 year old, and recently I was diagnosed with brain cancer. This cancer is not immediate threat to my life, however it has the potential to be. I have turned down traditional radiation treatment and would love to get more opinions and look in to safer, more holistic treatment options. I have two little siblings that I want to watch graduate in the upcoming years, and in the years following I have my own big dreams of course. Please help me reach my goal so that I can continue to search for answers about what's happening with my body now. Unfortunately my insurance isn't covering everything and I can only work so much while recovering. This whole process has been very overwhelming but I want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me in any way at all. Especially for those who have been there for me emotionally. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns." . Join us this Saturday October 28th at 9am at Vigor Ground Fitness and Performance for a great workout for an incredible cause. . Bring family and friends as we support Zheray and we'll also have some specials at FitBar and donate percentages of proceeds from there. . PLEASE share this and spread the word! . #vigorstrong #riseasone #charity #fuckcancer

I met Zheray a few weeks ago at the Vigor Fitness Business Summit, which was a 4 day event where a bunch of up-and-coming coaches got to learn from some of the most successful people in the industry.

It was an incredible experience that will impact a lot of lives, because coaches change lives and it made all of us better coaches. It even included a Charity Boot Camp for Hurricane Harvey relief, so I can tell you from first-hand experience that this will be awesome!

Zheray is a man who is committed to impacting a lot of lives through fitness. He and I share that trait. I can only hope that if I ever face circumstances like what he’s currently dealing with, that I handle myself as gracefully as he has.

He is not letting cancer define him, nor break his spirit. He’s still just a dude who wants to help as many people improve their lives as possible, while continuing to improve his own.

While I admire his mindset, the reality is that cancer must be dealt with. And dealing with cancer is expensive. I’m super stoked Luka and his awesome staff at Vigor are putting this together to help lift some of that financial burden.

Not only is this great for Zheray, it’ll be great for you too!

Like I said, Vigor is a world-class facility right here in Renton. They have a very inviting, friendly atmosphere and top-notch staff. Any negative pre-conceived notions you have about gyms will be shattered. The workout will be scalable for all fitness levels. You’ll probably even make some new friends.

There is a $10 minimum donation at the door. Obviously you’re free (and encouraged!) to give more if possible.

The address is 332 Burnett Ave S, Renton, WA 98057 

Hope to see YOU there!
