INSPIRED by the 22 pushups for 22 days taking over our social media feeds, Caloundra's Chris Dyer wanted to take it a step further and put on a fitness challenge on the Coast.
The Overhaul Fitness personal trainer is hosting a boot camp with fellow personal trainer Ryan Marshall at Point Cartwright on October 1 with all funds raised going to the Queensland-based charity Walking Wounded.
The boot camp will bring people together for a 50 minute fitness session which will be fun and suit all fitness levels.
Mr Dyer said he had saw the viral campaign on Facebook.
"According to... Walking Wounded, since 1999, 49 soldiers have been killed while on active duty, 239 veterans have taken their own lives,” he said.
"I thought if I could go one step further with building awareness for PTSD while also raising money for the Walking Wounded foundation it would be more beneficial.
"It has made me more aware of what was going on with post war veterans and how serious this is... It's heartbreaking and a huge eye opener of how serious this is and how we need to make it known that there is help out there.”
Mr Dyer said they will also be matching the donations with push-ups.
"For every dollar raised we will do 1 push up,” he said.
The bootcamp will kick off at 9am.
Cost is a donation, with all funds going to the Walking Wounded - a charity based organisation committed to helping soldiers with any psychological issues they may have as well as upholding the memories of the fallen with their loved ones.
