For the Fitness Community
Our fitness community, empowers our youth!
On Youth Homelessness Matters Day, 18 April 2018, we encourage all fitness organisations (gyms, crossfit boxes, bootcamps, fitness centres, personal trainers, studios etc) to complete as many burpees as possible to show your support for ending youth homelessness. As a fitness community, we empower our youth.
The Burpees for BYS challenge for the fitness community, is to complete as many burpees as possible between 5am and 7pm on Wednesday the 18th of April.
Each individual fitness organisation can decide on their own way of doing this; some suggestions are:
- Have one person doing burpees all day
- Always have one person/one group doing burpees while a class is on. Alternate this person/group every minute or 2.
- Have teams of people compete in each class to do as many burpees as possible as a team.
The total number of burpees completed for the day, by all participants in your fitness organisation, will be your score. You can have more than one person doing the burpees at the same time, and each individual persons burpees will count. (i.e. if 2 people are doing burpees at the same time, and one person completes 10 and the other completes 12, your total burpees are 22).
The organisation must post their totals on Instagram, and tag @brisyouth, every 3 hours, to make their score valid. Their final score must be posted before 7:10pm on the 18th of April. The highest burpee total will score bragging rights across Brisbane and Queensland.
