Weymouth fitness classes to help charities
5:00pm Monday 18th February 2013 in News
A WEYMOUTH fitness coach will run a series of charity classes to help raise money for good causes.
Andy Sloan, of Afterburn Fitness Camps, hopes to raise more than £5,000 for a variety of charities.
The first of the monthly classes will be raising money for the Joseph Weld Hospice.
It will help one of Mr Sloan’s fitness class members Hannah Lynch to reach her target of raising £1,400 for the hospice this year following the loss of her father who was cared for there.
Mr Sloan said: “The aim is to get between 50 to 100 people down for the session, with everyone having a great workout on the weekend, while supporting a fantastic cause at the same time.”
The workout, which will comprise of a mixture of exercises and various bits of bodyweight training, simply requires a minimum donation of £7 to participate.
There will be a live DJ, a 45 to 60-minute workout, some giveaways and prizes, and anyone donating £10 or more will be added into a draw to win a top prize worth in excess of £80.
The sports centre at Weymouth College, where Mr Sloan’s morning fitness camp programme is run, has agreed to sponsor the event by hosting it in their main sports hall.
Lewis Stripp, manager of the centre, said: “We’re only too happy to be able to help Andy out on this great project, and we are looking forward to welcoming people into the facility on the day.”
