World Gym International, the iconic brand for seriously fun fitness, announced today that Croix Sather will be the Keynote Speaker at the upcoming World Gym International Convention – September 3-6, 2014 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. His appearance is made possible by Platinum Level Sponsor - Precor.

Croix is perhaps best known for his “Run Across America in 2011.” Starting in San Diego, Croix ran a marathon distance (26.2 miles) every day for 100 consecutive days until he finished in New York City. Each day he also presented an inspirational keynote speech. That’s 100 marathons and 100 keynote speeches in 100 consecutive days.

Croix is now an internationally celebrated author and structured self-development speaker in the field of personal and business consulting and the psychology of success. He is a celebrity runner, a spokesman for “Hope for the Warriors” and has authored four books, hosted a radio show and appeared in hundreds of television, radio and newspaper articles.

During his coast-to-coast run Croix delivered his “Dream Big Act Big” message to a wide variety of at-risk audiences such as: United Way; Inner City Entrepreneurship Institute; various juvenile halfway houses, drug rehabilitation centers and correctional facilities; hospitals; rural high schools; the “Warriors in Transition” program at Ft. Bliss and Ft. Dix military bases; and “Hope for the Warriors”. Plus, Croix donated approximately 10,000 of his Dream Big Act Big books to his audiences along the way. His finish was dramatic as he ran through NYC proudly carrying a large American flag through Times Square, past the Freedom Towers and finishing at Wall Street. His last three miles were run with hundreds of participants in the “Run For The Warriors” 5K race.

“Croix is a remarkable individual and is the ideal speaker to deliver the Keynote Address at the World Gym Convention,” said Joyce J. Cammilleri, Chair of World Gym International. “His positive spirit and desire to help others find success are the qualities that the fitness industry, as a whole, aims to bring to its customers. We are honored to have Croix as our Keynote Speaker at this year's World Gym International Convention.”
