Ivyland, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/18/2013 -- In extensive training that included eight separate one-hour sessions throughout the summer, members of Fitlife, a premier fitness center and gym in Southampton, PA, competed in the Philadelphia Dragon Boat Race Festival on Saturday, October 5th. The first year entering the competition, 22 members of Fitlife paddled for charity and competed in the open mixed division which allows up to 12 men on the boat. Altogether, the team was made up of 13 women and seven men.
After training once a month for six months on the water and countless hours in the gym, the Fitlife team was ready and hungry. The team missed the Pro Division by .12 of a second, which was an amazing feat in itself. They settled nicely in the next division where Fitlife was ranked 3rd after the semi-final heats. In the final, however, the team knew they had more in the tank and paddled to victory by .48 of a second.
The members of team Fitlife were rowing for the Love for Life Foundation, an organization that raises money for pancreatic cancer research. Many of the members utilized the six months of training and were in the best shape of their lives for the race. Fitlife offers dozens of events and activities such as the Dragon Boat racing throughout the year to encourage members to get involved and get moving, which results in substantial weight loss in Warrington and keeps the body in tremendous shape.
