Clean The Beach
“Burning fat is to the body what clearing trash is to the planet. Both result in better health and better looks! A healthy body needs a healthy environment to live in.” – Krix Luther
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) statistics, over 1.9 billion adults are overweight. Out of which, more than 600 Million can be categorized as obese. In addition, an estimated over 41 Million, even children, are victims of this unhealthy lifestyle.
But the problem is not just internal. The consequences of our actions affect our bodies and our planet.
Our oceans are polluted by over 5.25 Trillion pieces of plastic, killing millions of seabirds and marine animals every year and poisoning the water. In addition, hundreds of Billions of plastic in various forms exchange hands every day.
Just when it begins to seem like everything is going down the drain, health-wise, there appears a silver lining among all the polluted dark clouds.
Beach Clean Ups
lbs of Trash Cleaned from the ocean
“More than 1.12 million pounds of garbage cleared in just 6 years! Clean The Beach Boot Camp (CBBC), a movement started by Krix Luther, a Health & Fitness Specialist in Phuket, Thailand, has now turned into one of the world’s largest beach cleanup and fitness movements.”
SO, WHAT IS THIS CLEAN THE BEACH BOOT CAMP?
A drive that cleans not just the beach but also your conscience!
Simply put, it is a free, fun-filled beach boot camp under the personal supervision of professional fitness trainers. The workout routine has been specially crafted, tried, tested and proven to show great results and is suited to all ages and abilities. Check out Why CBBC Is Great For Fat Loss, among its many other benefits. And although you will be sweating it all out, it will leave you feeling energized and revitalized by the end of the workout.
The Clean, The Beach Boot Camp offers you all of this free of cost. What’s the catch? After the workout, you cool down by walking up and down the beach clean any trash you see. Past CBBC participants, in addition to feeling rejuvenated and great physically, also experience a much more rewarding satisfaction of the soul for having done their bit in taking care of our beautiful planet.
How we got started
For Krix, the health of the planet is as important as the health of the body. All he asks of you in return for his time and efforts is that you help him take care of the very environment we live in. Good deeds backed by good intentions seldom goes unnoticed. It wasn’t long before CBBC started turning more heads, and the beach cleanup movement gained momentum.
“Over 8000 people from around the world have already reaped the benefits of a healthy body and a clearer consciousness through Clean The Beach Boot Camp.”
Soon more travellers and locals alike started getting drawn in by this opportunity to gain a leaner body and some good karma. The number of people committed to the cause of a healthy body and a healthy planet was multiplying with every new camp. The media, too, began to take notice. Local Thai TV and Phuket Today TV started featuring CBBC. Phuket radio stations repeatedly broadcasted news of their deeds. The Bangkok Post suggested CBBC as one of the ‘Top 10 things to do in Phuket’ and more articles covering CBBC in the Phuket Gazette and Phuket News. But this was just the beginning. A spark had been lit. Clean The Beach Boot Camp was no longer just a local movement.
“By 2016, CBBC had spread its wings across Indonesia, China, India, Kuwait, Malaysia, Philippines, and Vietnam.”
First We Train
The exercises classes are light, fun and tailored to all levels of fitness and abilities.
Then We Clean
After the workout is complete, we cool down and stretch off. Then we get some gloves and bags and start cleaning all the trash off the beach.
One of the greatest aspects of the Clean The Beach Boot Camp is the fact it brings the community together. Bests friends and future husbands and wives have met each other at our events.
In the Begining
It is hard to believe that just 6 years back and with just a few participants a worldwide beach cleanup movement was is in the making, all because one man had the will and courage to act on his conscience. In their journey so far, close to 10,000 men and women from across the world have turned awareness into action for a greener planet and a leaner body by joining and spreading the CBBC movement.
If you itch for a leaner body and the trash you see all around pricks at your conscience, then CBBC is where you will quickly and naturally fit in. And although facing the plastic pollution crisis of the world might seem like a herculean task at the beginning, tending to the planet by clearing the mess of single-use plastic that we all are responsible for, only makes us feel much lighter and in fact, happier.
Clean The Beach Boot Camps are held every other weekend at various locations around the world.
