Sporting

A mile of burpees!

Personal trainer Matt Smart has every right to enjoy putting his feet up at Christmas after taking on a gruelling physical feat to help Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Matt, 39, who runs Smart Health & Fitness, did a mile of burpees on Sunday, December 20 a challenge that saw him complete 767 burpees and cover the mile-long course in one hour and four minutes.

Boot Camps for Charity

Thank you to local personal trainer Matt Smart who organised a series of boot camps with donation to be made to Ark Cancer Centre Charity. Matt, who was inspired by Merv Rees at a presentation at a local networking group, also challenged himself to complete 300 burpees in 30 minutes after his final class on 18th December. Sponsorship poured in and Matt (not surprisingly) completed the challenge. Thank you to everyone who lost pounds (lbs) and raised pounds (£) in aid of the charity - over £800 was raised - a fantastic result.
