Physical Fix aids people in need

AS CHRISTMAS nears, staying active and maintaining fitness levels are crucial to ensure a healthy start to the new year.

Local gym Physical Fix understands that, which is why its annual Christmas Challenge was a perfect opportunity for gym-goers to finish 2017 the right way.

The week-long event pitted 24 teams of two against each other in a series of fitness-related events, for which competitors earned points.

Physical Fix's Hamey Hayllor said it was a great way to get fit and have fun after a big year of training.

"This is our fourth Christmas Challenge and it continues to get bigger every year which is fantastic,” Mrs Hayllor said.

"Last year we decided we would add to the event by giving back to the community so we picked a charity and we started producing hampers.

"This year we have donated 25 hampers to the Salvation Army.”

Mrs Hayllor also took time to thank everyone involved.

"I would love to recognise our staff, it was such a busy week and they did such a great job; and I obviously would also like to thank the participants,” she said.

"It's amazing that a fitness event can provide so much for people in need this Christmas, so this event is something we are extremely proud of.”
