Pets & Sets

Pets & Sets — a Next Level Fitness Academy brand, originated in the basement of owner Chad Demchik almost 5 years ago. Chad would train his fitness clients with his dog Atlas accompanying the clients for "workout support." The phrase "Pets & Sets" was coined to represent a pet to Atlas and then another set in the workout. 

Atlas was diagnosed with a soft tissue sarcoma cancer in August 2023 and sadly lost his battle on December 22, 2023. In honor of Atlas and the contribution he has made to our family and the Next Level family over the years, the team is excited to launch an extension of Next Level Fitness Academy that focuses on charitable support to the canine community through health and fitness initiatives, as well as merchandise to showcase love of fitness and our four-legged companions. 

"Atlas was always there to lend a paw when you need that extra push," says Amanda Demchik, Atlas' owner and business operations partner of Next Level. "He was always a welcomed addition to any session and clients loved his friendly and unique personality."

With the launch of Pets & Sets, a virtual bootcamp ran the entire month of October 2023, with 20% of the service fee benefiting the AKC Canine Health Foundation - General Oncology program area. 

On November 5, 2023 Next Level Fitness Academy pulled off an incredible event to raise funds for canine cancer research in honor of our dog Atlas who has been courageously fighting a battle of his own this year. 

We raised $𝟮,𝟯𝟯𝟬 and we couldn't have done it without the kind-hearted individuals that participated in this year’s charity bootcamp.

We donated a total of $𝟮,𝟳𝟳𝟱.𝟲𝟮 to the AKC Canine Health Foundation General Oncology Program area in honor of Atlas — this was in combination of the birthday bash bootcamp, wristband sales, new client enrollments and general merchandise sales. 

 

A special THANK YOU to our sponsors, donators, local business and volunteers that helped make this event a huge success.
