THE NATIONAL FITNESS GAMES

We took 20 personal training clients to The National Fitness Games at Loughborough University ‘Fit Fest’ and they all smashed it out of the park!


These special people not only put themselves through four gruelling workouts in front of hundred’s of other people, they stepped well out of their comfort zones into the unknown and totally crushed it! Non of them had done anything like this before, yet every single one of them stepped up to the challenge, hit every workout with grit and determination and had a huge laugh with like-minded people at the same time!



As coaches, we are so proud of all of them and know they are proud of themselves too!
