Around 190 fitness fans kept up their New Year resolutions by getting hot and sweaty in Sindlesham – and it was all in a good cause.
Every January, the Pulse 8 Health & Fitness Club in Mole Road hosts a charity fitness weekend, and this year was no exception with more than £800 being raised for the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service.
Event co-ordinator Tracy Butler said: “The charity launch was a great success, creating a superb buzz around the club.
“We saw 190 members and guests participate in the classes with great motivation and excitement. Through the classes and tombola we raised £807.95 for a much-deserving charity.”
The charity supports children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and is working towards building a children’s hospice in Berkshire.
Tracey said: “I would like to thank everybody that took part and so generously donated money and also to every member of staff who worked so hard to make it the successful event it was.”
The fitness weekend on January 12 and 13 was based on the exercise programme inspired by former New Zealand Olympian Les Mills. Pulse 8 offers 30 of these classes every week.
Pre-choreographed for all fitness levels, the club’s Les Mills’ timetable includes Body Attack, Body Balance, Body Combat, Body Pump, Body Step and Body Vive. Visit www.pulse-8.net.
