SHEFFIELD’S keenest keep fitters have raised more than £12,000 for our patient care…with more cash to come in as their gruelling fitness challenge reaches its climax.
Throughout February, nationally acclaimed city boutique fitness club TRIB3 has been hosting its 28 day sponsored fitness challenge in support of our services.
The club has been offering 28 fitness sessions - all of which must be completed in February at any of TRIB3’s three Sheffield sites in Ecclesall Road, Krynkl at Shalesmoor or The Source at Meadowhall - for £40, with participants promising to raise a minimum £100 in sponsorship for the tough endurance challenge.
And with just a few days left to go the challenge has already raised an adrenalin fuelled £12,500.
A session consists of 33 per cent high intensity interval training on the treadmill, 33 per cent resistance training on the floor and 33 per cent high intensity floor work and training/pad work.
Participants work with dumb-bells, medicine balls, resistance bands, kettle-bells, Grapple bags and bodyweight in a series of sessions aimed at burning off up to 1,000 calories.
“We have been completely overwhelmed by the level of commitment TRIB3 clients have shown to the challenge,” said our Corporate Fundraising Manager Jack Kidder.
“Nobody said it was going to be an easy challenge but it was one that TRIB3 members have totally embraced, more than doubling the amount of money we expected them to raise.”
