On Saturday, Sept. 17th, Gym Revolt hosted its first “Fight Gone Bad” event which raised $7,910 for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, CrossFit kids, and Camp Patriot. Ten competitors trained for several months in preparation for this seventeen minute grueling event that challenged their strength, stamina and overall fitness.
This event included push presses: pressing 75lbs overhead, sumo deadlift high pulls: pulling 75lbs off the floor-to-over pecs, wall ball shots: squatting down and tossing a 20lb ball-10ft into the wall, box jumps: jumping up and down onto a 20” platform, and row machine. The participants’ endurance and overall conditioning was tested every second of every exercise by performing the maximum amount of repetitions at each for one minute straight. To prepare for this event, Gym Revolt members met three-to-four times per week for group training classes.
Gym Revolt is a community of men and women following a unique approach to fitness that includes training programs available in class or one-on-one settings. Gym Revolt calls itself “the anti-gym” because of its unusual, back-to-basics fitness philosophy that has helped dozens of women and men achieve outstanding results in losing weight, gaining strength and improving overall wellness. The Gym Revolt headquarters is located at 99 Industrial Road, Berkeley Heights, NJ.
The proceeds from Fight Gone Bad went to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, CrossFit kids, and Camp Patriot. “FGB is for a wonderful cause, and we were very glad to be able to host this event,” said Joe Bellisano, co-founder of Gym Revolt and manager of the event. “Our members trained hard to get ready for this competition, and they also worked hard to raise money for their sponsorships. We’re grateful for their hard work and commitment.”
