Local trainer to host record fitness event


San Marcos personal health trainer Heath Herrera was selected to locally host what is hoped to be the world’s largest international charity fitness boot camp workout.

The record-breaking session is slated for Jan. 9, from 10-11 a.m. at Diaz Martial Arts, 170 South LBJ Drive.

Initiated  by Milwaukee-based personal Trainer and Workout Worldwide founder B.J. Gaddour, the event seeks to set the Guinness world record for the “largest international simultaneous fitness boot camp workout.” All net proceeds from the event will go to the American Heart Association, with international participants giving to their local heart associations.

“We’ve hand-picked the top fitness boot camp owners across the globe to provide attendees with a free two-week trial to their camps for a basic $20 donation,” Gaddour said.

For $20, each participant will receive a two-week trial to a local fitness boot camp, along with a home fitness program featuring interval workout music mp3 soundtracks and smartphone and Video iPod compatible follow-along rapid weight loss workout videos.

Workout Worldwide is a global fitness project focused on reversing the trends of obesity, premature death and skyrocketing health care costs that are associated with poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle. The organization hopes to do this through educating the public about nutrition and “change the world one workout at a time” with international charity boot camp events.

HH Fitness, in addition to running boot camp fitness programs, has a full complement of services which include strength and cardiovascular training, performance improvement, nutrition, weight management, fat analysis, flexibility and injury rehabilitation. Classes are conducted at Diaz Martial Arts and Central Texas Medical Center.
