United Against Poverty and Vero Strength + Conditioning Present Fitness for Life

United Against Poverty and Vero Strength + Conditioning will cohost a “Fitness for Life” reception on January 27, from 6 to 8 p.m. featuring Croix Sather, a nationally recognized world-record athlete, author, and business and life success expert.

The community is invited to attend the Fitness for Life reception at Vero Strength + Conditioning, 760 8th Ct., Suite 4, in Vero Beach. Wine and light appetizers will be served.

Croix will inspire guests with his message to “Dream Big and Act Big,” important tools to cross the finish line of success. His inspirational message is about strategy and mindset to unleash the Champion within you and to create your life by design. “Sather’s message and United Against Poverty’s purpose to inspire and empower people living in poverty to economic self sufficiency is in line with our philosophy,” explained Vero Strength + Conditioning owners Wendy Shafranski and Robert DelaCruz. “We embrace both mind and body fitness as important elements to a healthy, harmonious lifestyle.”

About Croix Sathers

Known as the “Marathon Man,” Sather’s amazing success started with a Run Across America. In just one year he went from a casual runner to run 2,621 miles across the U.S, joining the ranks of the most elite ultra-runners in the world. For 100 consecutive days, he ran a marathon distance each day. Plus each day he gave an inspirational keynote speech to audiences with challenges such as addiction recovery, homelessness, and wounded veterans.

Sather is the only person in the world to run 100 marathons plus give 100 keynote speeches in the same 100 consecutive days. One year later, in the hottest place on the planet, he broke the world record running unassisted through Death Valley for 146 miles in 117-degree heat. Today Croix travels around the world as a professional speaker on life transformation, and a psychology of success expert. In addition to speaking for Fortune 100 corporations, he has spoken on the prestigious stages of TEDx in NYC and Las Vegas, and I’ve been on most every news media sharing his story and strategies for super achievement.
