Muscle Up for MND is an awareness and fundraising campaign aimed at getting the average Australian up and active, and building muscles for those who can’t – people living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
Our aim is to invade the Gabba in an attempt to break the World Record for the Largest Personal Training Circuit Class. The current World Record is 2061 people, held by ironman Guy Leech.
This unique opportunity to:
· train like a sporting superstar on the Gabba grounds
· rub shoulders with some of Australia's elite athletes
· help break a World Record for circuit training.
Importantly, by participating in Muscle Up for MND the community has the opportunity to show our support for Queenslanders impacted by this terminal and debilitating disease. MND has already taken too many lives and this is a great chance to join the fight in ensuring no one has the face MND alone.
The World Record Attempt
During the one hour session (9.00-10.00am) "Muscle Uppers" will rotate together through 10 different stations set up around the Gabba grounds. Exercises at each station will run for three minutes in duration and cater for different fitness levels, allowing everyone to ‘Muscle Up’.
It is free to participate. All that is asked is that you donate your regular training fee (or a minimum of $20 for an individual or $50 for a family). All donations over $2 are tax deductable. The minimum age to join in the fun this year is 5 years old.
