My family has a membership at an amazing fitness center  in metro Milwaukee. The Princeton Club has an outstanding facility, leading-edge equipment, exciting programs, great staff, and admirable leadership. The entire family fits the description of raving Princeton Club fans.

They could get a Sunday Shout Out post just for being such a fantastic club, but they are at the beginning of new campaign that deserves the full attention of the post, and your participation or replication. The Princeton Club has begun a campaign called the Million Pound Challenge.

Here is the Situation:

People need food and exercise to be healthy.

Some people do not have enough food.

Some people have too much food and/ or not enough exercise.

Here is a Solution:

People pledge a number of pounds that they want to loose, or a number of hours that they want to exercise, over the next five months.

The Princeton Club will donate 10 pounds of food to a local food pantry for every pound lost, or hour exercised, in that time.

Brilliant!!!

I just love this idea. It meets some very real needs in the area, hunger and obesity. It also helps broaden the focus of personal fitness beyond self, which I suspect will make it more  fulfilling.

Please join me in shedding a few pounds and getting some food to those in need. My personal goal is losing 10 pounds by the end of May, which the Princeton Club will turn into 100 pounds of food for a local food pantry!!!

If you live in Madison or Milwaukee, sign up here.

If you live elsewhere, do it on your own or start a similar campaign!
