Every two weeks, we will be launching a new functional fitness challenge. Well done to those of you who are already taking part, have a chat to your Wellness Advisor if you would like to join the next one.
Support Annabel’s 12 Hour Spin!
On the 18th April, our Gym Manager Annabel will be doing a 12-hour cycle on a spin bike in the gym for Mind.
Mind is a mental health charity that provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. They won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.
Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling.
Annabel has chosen to do such a difficult challenge for Mind due to all of the reasons above. Last year, she went through a difficult time and unfortunately suffered with her mental health. Mind were there giving her the support and guidance she needed and they helped her not to feel alone or ashamed of how she was feeling.
Annabel tells us;
“Sitting on the bike for 12-hours will be physically tough but it will be the mental side that will push me more, which is why I have decided to do this event.
I want to be able to see how I can use the endurance event as a new focus and push my mind to its limits.
On the 18th April I will be in the gym on the spin bike for 12 hours from 7am. My training has begun and it’s tough but also incredibly empowering.
I will be posting on my Just Giving page in due course and will be blogging the build-up to the challenge, so please keep an eye out for my posts on Chartham Park’s Facebook page. I am so glad I can share this with all the members at Chartham Park.”
Good luck Annabel! We’ll be with you all the way!
