St. Louis Fitness and Wellness Group presents: SHOWME Your Fitness: Fitness for a Cause, a promotional holiday calendar showcasing St. Louis’s elite personal fitness professionals.

The mission of St. Louis Fitness and Wellness Group is to establish a community environment that promotes fitness, healthy lifestyles, decreases the risk of disease, enhances the quality of life, and increases productivity through healthy lifestyle choices. We encourage families to strengthen their health and well being through educational opportunities, wellness activities and self-improvement. Our goal is to leave a legacy of a happier and healthier community.

In an effort to continue our mission of supporting health and wellness in our community, we present to you SHOWME Your Fitness: Fitness for a Cause. This classy self-promotional calendar series will feature some of St. Louis’s top fitness professionals. The first edition will be a 12-month wall calendar covering 2016 and will feature seven of St. Louis’s elite male personal trainers professionally photographed by St. Louis photographer, Ms. Kat Simone.   Each trainer will be given two months of the calendar and will present a brief bio including what inspires them, what makes them elite, a special quote and all of their contact information. Each month will have by-lines that will describe the location as well as a tagline for the photographer. The trainers will highlight their favorite workouts throughout their months as inspiration to get moving, so there is great practical use for these pieces. A portion of the proceeds will be directly donated to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of St. Louis and Gateway Greening.

The purpose of this piece is to attempt to cross barriers with supporters of community sustainability and the fitness industry. Our industry is all about people and long term change in the way fitness is thought of and how it can impact community. We want to get our excellent professionals in front of an audience that may otherwise be intimidated by or just have no resources for information on what we do. We hope to promote and educate about fitness and to also donate and give back to our community in as many ways as we can.
