“Train Your Trainer”

Best Body Fitness owner Scott McDermott and trainers Dan Johnson and Madison Fearey showed toys they purchased from the Dairy Queen Angels’ Anonymous Tree cards for Sylvan Lake Christmas Bureau. Personal trainers at the gym ran a fundraiser where their clients donated a minimum of $20 per 15 minutes to have the trainers “do their bidding”, said McDermott.

“Train Your Trainer” resulted in some “hilarious, inventive and hard as diamonds” exercises for the trainers who donated their time during a four hour period on Dec. 7. “In the end, it was a blast!”

Best Body Fitness in turn donated the full rate they would have paid the trainers. In total over $2,000 was raised. Then they contacted Dairy Queen to see if there were any tags left on the Angels’ Anonymous tree and claimed all 35 remaining tags. The gym spent about $1,500 on the gifts and the remaining money was donated directly to Paws and Claws.
