Team pReign Mantis | Movember 2018
The truth is...
"Men are facing a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. They are dying too young, before their time. We’re taking action and we need your help."
These are you husbands, fathers, grandfathers, brothers, friends, boyfriends, colleagues....and they need, we need your help.
Reign Fitness will be calling all Men to join our Movember Team, "Team Preign Mantis" as we set out to raise money & awareness for Men's Health.
Not only will we be fundraising and bringing awareness to this topic...
The Men of Team Preign Mantis will also be leading by example and committing to living a fit and healthy lifestyle throughout the month of November.
Men's Health is an issue that so many of us here at Reign (not just men) have been affected by whether it was a husband, brother, son, father, or friend who us battling or has battled prostate cancer, testicular cancer, heart disease, or even mental health. (and it's not just these things that are affecting men)
And we want to make an effort to help because EFFORT COUNTS!

Does Movember and Growing A Mustache Really Work?
How Do You Participate?
✅ Join our Team here
➡️ https://moteam.co/preign-mantis and create your account.
✅ Clean shave on October 31st and start growing that mustache. (You can groom, trim, and shape - just don't shave that stache)
Some of you might be thinking why a mustache?
Well to put it simply, it brings attention to you and when people ask about it...
You can share why you're doing it, what you're doing it for, and how it's important to you and the Reign Community!
You can also support by making an effort to move more!
✅ Spend November committing to living a fit & healthy lifestyle, which is also a great motivator this time of the year to stay on top of your game.
60 Miles for the 60 Men we Lose To Suicide every hour.
This year, there is a 60 mile challenge that you can do to either run, bike, row, swim 60 miles in the month of November to bring awareness to 60 men we lose to suicide every year each hour, every hour.
Whether you kick it off fast, take it slow, do it with a friend...
It's up to you.
It's up to us.
✅ Help raise money by sharing your journey online using our team and your personal links. You can also participate in our money raising events like the Burpee-Thon (this year we will be adding some more options)
How did we do last year? In 2017...
For thirty days we lived our lives growing mustaches one day at a time.
“We spent time with our families, went to work, some of us traveled, we ate, exercised, had a great thanksgiving, and of course did a lot of burpees. We strived to lead by example motivated by everyone around us.”
I’m sure all the guys will tell you that their lives were a bit different over the 30 days and also how the mustaches definitely got a lot of attention.
But that was the point.
To get people’s attention and get the word out about Men’s Health.This was so much fun and I know we were all honored to take part in something that meant a lot to us.
