“EACH is clearly an incredible charity and one that does an amazing job” – Body Transform Fitness members complete a gruelling gym session and take their fundraising total to nearly £14,000

Fitness fanatics showed steely determination and worked up a sweat for charity.

Nearly 70 members of Norwich’s Body Transform Fitness signed up for the HYROX session, to raise funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

The new fitness craze combines different exercises with interval runs and the group managed to raise £720.

It means the gym, its members and guests have now raised £13,800 for EACH since January 2023.

“We’re very happy and proud of that total and our goal is to hit £20,000 by the end of the year,” said gym manager Dean Rudling.

“EACH is clearly an incredible charity and one that does an amazing job.

“It’s also an organisation that aligns closely to our own morals and values, because we’re very family-orientated.

“We consider our members one big family and enjoy trying to give something back to the community.

“Everyone is passionate about raising funds and does their best to get behind these events. They want to do whatever they can for EACH.”

The hour-long HYROX session took place on 8th March.

It featured both men and women, of various ages and abilities.

Members brought along guests to help boost the fundraising total and participants had the chance to enjoy a free sports massage courtesy of Goodhew Sports Injuries.

EACH Corporate Fundraising Manager Caroline Allen, who is a member of the gym and took part in the session, said: “It was hard going but everyone showed such spirit and determination, staying focused throughout.

“I’m very fortunate to have a foot in both camps, in that I’m regularly at Body Transform Fitness and also work for EACH.

“I feel fortunate to be part of such a brilliant, kind-hearted community at the gym. Everyone really cares and wants to do something special to make a difference.

“With my work hat on, I also know how important these funds are in terms of helping us continue our vital work. It’s a great relationship and long may it continue.”

As part of its quest to raise funds, staff and members took part in last year’s Tough Mudder 15k event at Belvoir Castle, in Grantham.

The gym also organised an overnight ’12 in 12’ event in August, where members and non-members completed a dozen workouts in as many hours.

The next planned fundraiser will see 58 members and coaches climb Snowdon in May.
