MORTON Stanley Park is set to be turned into a boot camp as residents get put through their paces to raise funds for injured soldiers.
A series of free exercise sessions are being held at the park, overseen by personal trainer Harry Helm, who started his career in the military as an elite physical training instructor. The sessions, organised by In & Out Fitness, are open to anybody of any fitness level and start on April 21 with Redditch MP Karen Lumley set to open the event and possibly even take part.
They initially run for six weeks and will feature some military exercises as well as standard exercises with a twist.
Carl Maeers, owner of In & Out Fitness, said he was passionate about improving people's health, particularly tackling obesity, and the boot camp was a way of getting people more involved.
"The cost of exercising can often be prohibitive, so by removing this obstacle we hope to get more engagement from the community."
Although there will be no charge residents can make a donation on a 'pay what you feel' basis to ABF The Soldiers' Charity which supports serving and retired soldiers and their families.
For more information contact Harry Helm on 07429 390883.
