LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. – The Gulf Coast Builders Exchange (GCBX), a not-for-profit trade organization, is launching a summer initiative focused on the health and wellness of its members.
Called GCBX Cares, the summer-long program will offer health and fitness opportunities for its members. The healthy living options include a free 45-minute lunch-and-burn workout class at Orangetheory Fitness, cycling classes with Off the Handle! cycling studio, specialty yoga classes, healthy cooking classes, at-home workouts and one-on-one guidance and nutritional counseling by Positively Diesel, lunch-and-learn workshops with Longevity Wellness Clinic and heart score testing at the Manatee Diagnostic Center, among other movement and healthy living happenings.
“With this summer initiative, we want to put our members on the right track and help them strike the elusive work-life balance,” said Mary Dougherty, executive director of the Gulf Coast Builders Exchange. “Our members work in a highly competitive industry. They are focused on growing their businesses, engaging with the community and taking care of their employees, and typically, their own well-being falls to the wayside. With this initiative, we want to show them that GCBX truly cares. Our members are the foundation for our organization and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is critically important to keeping that foundation solid.”
As part of this initiative, GCBX is introducing the Transformation Challenge, a workout challenge with Orangetheory Fitness from July 7 through August 17.
