Community-Based Fitness Concept Opens New Studio in Woodbridge, VA; Hosts Boot Campaign’s Pushups For Charity Challenge Supporting Vets and Active Duty Military
WOODBRIDGE, VA (June 2016) – On July 9, 2016, Rebel Fit USA will celebrate the grand opening of its new fitness facility located at 2088 Daniel Stuart Square, Woodbridge, VA while hosting an official Pushups For Charity challenge in an effort to raise money and awareness for America’s military and veteran community.
Frustrated by working for big box gyms, Air Force veteran Beny Blaq created and founded the Rebel Fit USA concept in order to provide his clients a true fitness community, offering personal training through small group sessions, boot camps and nutritional programs. In 2013 Blaq opened shop in Alexandria, VA, but quickly outgrew the location due to his growing client base. By working with Bethany Scanlon, Managing Principal and Co-Founder of Neighborhood Retail Group, Rebel Fit USA found the perfect space for its new studio.
“Bethany was a true advocate for me and Rebel Fit USA in securing an accommodating space—one that supports both our fitness and local community,” says Blaq. “We’re proud to open our Woodbridge facility and partner with Pushups For Charity—it will be a day I will never forget.”
The Pushups For Charity challenge starts at 9 a.m. after Rebel Fit’s first morning class. Prizes will be awarded to the top fundraiser as well as the male and female who complete the most pushups within the 90 second timeframe. Rebel Fit USA has set a goal of raising $10,000 and completing more than 5,000 pushups. Sign-up for the Rebel Fit Pushups For Charity team is available online at: https://www.crowdrise.com/benyblaq-pushupsforcharity2016/fundraiser/benyblaq
“As an Air Force veteran, the Pushups For Charity challenge is very important to me,” says Blaq, “especially knowing firsthand the sacrifices our military, veterans and their families make every day.”
