Garrettsville – Do you need a little motivation to lose weight, diet properly and exercise? Community EMS Boot Camp is a weight-loss challenge in the form of two physical fitness tests over a three-month period for only $20. Each participant will receive a commemorative T-shirt upon completion of Boot Camp. Gift card prizes will also be awarded to the following categories: best physical fitness test score for male and female, most improved physical fitness test score for male and female, and most weight lost for male and female.
Boot Camp will begin with a physical fitness test on Saturday, February 12th at 10am (call if you need to set up another time). This test will establish a baseline fitness level for each participant. Participants will then work towards their personal goals. This can be done individually or in groups. Workout and motivation groups will be set up after the first test. Then everyone will return on May 7th for the final fitness test. Physical fitness tests will consist of as many push-ups as you can do in two minutes, as many abdominal crunches as you can do in two minutes, pull-ups or flexed arm hang, and a 2-mile run that can be completed as a walk, run or both.

Grab your friends, family and neighbors to join in the challenge with you! To sign up, stop in at 10804 Forest Street in Garrettsville, or call the station at (330) 527-4100. The $20 can be paid on February 12th at the first fitness test. Proceeds will go to Community EMS Association, an employee based, non-profit organization that raises money to buy state-of-the-art equipment to better serve our community. All participants will be recognized at our open house on May 14th.
