Torching Calories for Boys Town Nevada

J & D Fitness hosted ​a charity workout benefiting Boys Town Nevada in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, Jan. 17. Doug Sheppard, co-owner of J & D Fitness has been a long-time supporter of Boys Town Nevada and the youth served by the Family Home Program.  He contacted Boys Town looking for a way to unite his passion for fitness and helping at-risk youth.

The event featured two 45 minute workouts where Sheppard introduced guests to the unique elements of his original Torch workout, including the use of the Total Body Resistance Exercise (TRX) suspension, kettlebells and sandbags.  Participants were treated to a unique, individualized workout, while raising money for a great cause.

“We would love to make this an annual event,” said Howard Olshansky, Executive Director, Boys Town Nevada.  “It’s such a fun way to promote Boys Town’s mission of changing the way America cares for children. The participants left feeling a bit sweaty but definitely accomplished!”

Participants donated a total of $350, while J & D Fitness graciously matched their donations dollar for dollar raising a total of $700 for Boys Town Nevada. Thanks again to J & D Fitness for supporting Boys Town Nevada through this fun, healthy event!
