After the success of their grand opening, Benchmark Fitness, Crystal Lake’s newest fitness center, is welcoming the community to an outdoor trivia workout event to support nonprofits at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3.

Benchmark Fitness’ Outdoor Trivia Workout invites attendees to form a team of two to four people for a socially-distanced group fitness class. Along with a fun, challenging session that combines elements of HIIT and strength training, teams will battle it out through fitness-related trivia questions for a chance to win!

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

 

The top two teams will receive free T-shirts and one of the following: one month of group training for each participant; two personal training sessions per person; or three small-group fitness classes (in-person or virtual).

Each participant has the opportunity to submit the name of a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization they’d like to support. At the end of the workout, one of the submitted charities will be drawn at random to receive 100{019b826680c237a0f40f2c81e8609cbc0f2f8e1c44b17fc27c678562afb683e3} of the profits from the event.

“We wanted to do this event as a way to engage people in fun, health-centered activities that also support local nonprofit organizations,” says Benchmark Fitness co-owner Danny Miller. “We feel that as a local business, it’s always important to give back to the community.”

Join the fun on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 10:30 a.m. at Benchmark Fitness, 975 Nimco Drive, Unit G in Crystal Lake.

This event is open to all ages and fitness levels, and membership at Benchmark Fitness is not required. The cost to participate is $25 and guests can pay at the event with cash or a check.
