A fundraiser that gives fitness customers a chance to challenge their coaches takes place Dec. 7 at Innovative Fitness White Rock.

Train the Trainer – in its sixth year – is set for 6-8 p.m. at 6-3238 King George Blvd., where the personal training team will donate their time and energy to raise money for charities on the Semiahmoo Peninsula.

For $50, customers can ‘train’ their coach for five minutes. Each coach has 12 five-minute slots open.

In past years, coaches have been dressed in costume and made to do all manner of workouts, much to the entertainment of those who turn out for the occasion.

“It is an event that was developed as a fun and entertaining way for our training coaches to raise money for charitable organizations. However, it is not just the selfless acts of our teammates that make this event possible, it is also from the overwhelming support of our loyal and contributing customers that come out to support the initiative,” Curtis Christopherson, owner of Innovative Fitness White Rock, said.

Last year, the team raised more than $16,000. The funds benefited the Peninsula Community Foundation and the Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation.

This year, the goal is $20,000, with funds to go to PCF and the 60 Minute Kidsclub.
