The Staff at the Self-Proclaimed Coolest Little Gym In America Takes Off Their Clothes to Help Raise Money and Awareness for Five Orange County Charities.


Irvine, California (PRWEB) October 26, 2012

Stark Personal Training located in Irvine, California in the heart of Orange County, develops a creative approach to raising money for charities using an age-old marketing tool: sex appeal. In an effort to get the entire team focused on raising social awareness through good old, healthy competition, the thirty-day event (exhibiting somewhat risqu? photographs) demands involvement by everyone at Stark. Im all over it, says Chelsea McCrea, 23, a receptionist and trainer in training, and the current front-runner in the contest. Dont tell my boss Im spending all day on Facebook, she whispers through a smile.

Its a bit of a bait, because theres no real nudity; at least according to Facebook guidelines, says Todd Vande Hei, 44, President of Stark. Stark Naked is a photograph competition hosted on Starks Facebook Fanpage. Almost the entire staff began training hard, dieting perfectly, and following a show-prep-like process for the shoot, rending every bit of fat possible from their bodies.

It was really a lot of fun, states Brad Davidson, 36, V.P. of R & D at Stark. I would say the Old Guys [Davidsons team] worked the hardest. The voters will be the judges. So, go vote, but vote for the Old Guys, says Davidson with a wink.

According to Kristina Kasper, Fat Loss Specialist at Stark, the contest inspired tremendous focus. Even though were in the body business, were human. We still need a purpose. I worked so hard I lost two inches on my thighstwo inches, a problem area my entire life. I look better than I ever have, even after three children and at thirty-nine years old; without the competition, Im not sure I would have made so much progress, says Kasper.

The Stark competitors, comprised of trainers, strength coaches, nutritionists and office staff were grouped into teams of two and three, each representing a single charity: Royal Family Kids Camp, Beckstrand Cancer Foundation, The Finally Home Foundation, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Orange County, and MIKA Community Development. The team with the highest number of votes earns a donation from Stark for their respective charity.

Stark Naked started as a water cooler-like challenge with some of our people claiming to have the best abs, or legs, or other various body parts. Were in the body business. Its a normal topic of conversation for us, says Vande Hei. Deciding to put our money where our mouth is, were letting our fans decide. However, there wasnt enough purpose to it. Thats when we decided to take our clothes off for a good cause and engage with some meaningful local charities.

According to Vande Hei, being creative during the U.S.s tepid recovery is essential to survival. Contributing to something bigger than oneself (the charities) helps keep the organizations sense of purpose clear, enhance pride of team, and keep morale high. Stark Naked seems to be a bit of both those: creative and the sense of being a part of something bigger.

Stark is the coolest little gym in America (the companys slogan), says Jesse Gawinske, one of Starks Generation Y personal trainers. This project was cool.

The Facebook competition continues through November 18th at which point the votes will be tallied, and a winner announced. To cast your votes, go to the Stark Naked Application at http://www.facebook.com/starktraining. Be sure to look for future posts by Starks client base; they seem to want to partake in the competition, adding a whole new reason to get healthy.

Many people make a lot of money in the real estate industry. You may be wondering how you can get your fair share. Would-be real estate moguls want to get involved in real estate but do not have the money or the credit. There are still opportunities available for those who have the desire and motivation. You do not need to have a pile of cash to make money in real estate. What you need is knowledge, desire, and persistence. When you have those three ingredients, then you always want to strive to be an informed real estate investor. Here are five ways to make money in real estate with little or no money:

1. Assignment of contract – Other investors or would be homeowners are looking for good deals. When you have a good deal, your phone will ring off the hook. The better the deal, the more of a demand there will be. Learn how to locate, and qualify a good deal. Learn what other investors are looking for. By assigning just one good deal, you can make as much as $ 2,000, $ 5,000, 10,000, or more. And if you can do this once, you can do it again and again.2. Option to buy – You can find a great deal on a property, and submit an option to buy. This is done to tie up the property. In the meantime, you can line up another investor to assign the contract to, find a partner, or get your financing in place. An option basically ties up a property and buys you time. Keep in mind, you will need option money, the amount depends on your offer to the seller. 3. Bird dog – You can find the good deals, and refer them to another investor and receive a fee. The fee is between you and the investor, but can range from $ 200 – $ 1,000 depending on the property. If you can find 1-2 deals a week and make about $ 500 for each referral, you will soon look forward to being called bird dog. 4. Lease option – How would you like to make money controlling property without owning it? You can lease a property with the option to purchase. In the meantime, you would lease this property to someone else. By the time you are ready to exercise your option, the value has gone up and you would then sell at a profit. You would need option money to offer the seller, the amount depending on what you and the seller agree to. 5. Real estate agent – You can make money as a real estate agent, but there is work involved. You would have access to the multiple listing service, and as your knowledge and experience increases, you could save up for when you find that fantastic deal that you just have to buy.

And there you have it. There are other ways, but remember, the most important thing is knowledge. If you have money and no knowledge, you may lose your money. If you have knowledge and no money, you will still be able to make money in real estate as we have seen. Remember to always be an informed real estate investor.
