Staten Island University Hospital and Union County Sheriff's Department Offer Popular Fitness Program to All Staff

MAX Challenge Fitness and Nutrition Program Offers Corporate Programs; An Exciting and Effective Workout System

MANALAPAN, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 6, 2015) - The MAX Challenge, the tri-state area's fastest growing fitness concept, recently introduced its body renewal program to both Staten Island University Hospital and the Union County Sheriff's Department. The 10-week fitness challenge, which began at both locations in late January, was implemented directly onsite in an effort to provide all staff with an effective yet convenient health and wellness plan.

The MAX Challenge combines a structured workout regimen with an easy-to-follow nutritional guide to help achieve and sustain optimal health and fitness. Unlike many other fitness programs, The MAX system promotes a slow and systematic approach toward attaining physical success. The program educates members on the impact a balanced nutritional diet and positive mental attitude have on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

The program has met with a tremendous reception in both corporate settings. Roseann Camarda, Owner of The MAX Staten Island/Woodrow location, was instrumental in bringing The MAX Challenge to SIUH. "Unlike conventional workout programs, The MAX Challenge emphasizes a slow and steady approach toward attaining fitness," remarked Camarda. "We understand that in order to reach one's full fitness potential, a mental change must be made prior to a physical change. MAX also stresses the importance of health education. For example, members are equipped with nutritional booklets that contain several healthy options to choose from for each meal of the day. They can then tailor this information to suit individual requirements based on their fitness level and lifestyle."

Each 45-minute class session focuses on strengthening a different muscle group. Instructors alternate exercise routines daily to avoid monotony and to ensure that members remain fully engaged, and most importantly, enjoy the time they spend reaching the peak of their physical abilities. The MAX fosters an atmosphere of excitement and teamwork as participants are educated and motivated to transform their minds and bodies while alleviating stress and personal insecurity.

Michael Heller, a current Patrolmen's Benevolent Association (PBA) Delegate and former police officer of 23 years, initially began his fitness journey at The MAX Springfield location and was so impressed by the program that he felt all UCSD employees should reap the benefits of the The MAX culture. "Every day at The MAX is a new experience," stated Heller. "They create an atmosphere of camaraderie, positivity, and constant motivation that really makes you strive to reach your highest fitness potential."

Both corporate programs have stated that they intend to utilize The MAX system long-term, and are pleased with its staff's level of excitement and participation.
