NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Veteran's Day, PERFORMIX® and GNC have teamed up to pay tribute and raise money to support America's veterans. At 12:22pm today, influential PERFORMIX® athletes led crowds at select GNC locations around the country in doing 22 pushups for veterans. For every pushup done by athletes and participants, PERFORMIX® will donate $1 to help veterans seeking careers as personal trainers.
"Raising awareness for veteran causes is near and dear to my heart," said Matt Hesse, CEO of PERFORMIX®. "Many members of the PERFORMIX® team, including myself, have served our great country and are now fortunate enough to be in a position to help others who have also made huge sacrifices and need support."
In addition, GNC military base locations are hosting a #SHARE4VETERANS program where participants can write down a personal goal, snap a photo and post it to social media with the hashtag. For every post November 11-15, PERFORMIX® will donate $5 to help veterans become personal trainers.
"As a company anchored in health, wellness and performance, PERFORMIX® offers solutions to live a healthy life. We continue to work to bring this philosophy, these solutions, and support to veterans in their new civilian lives," said Hesse.
