Pretty Muddy 2018


Saturday 8 September saw hundreds of pink clad tutu’d ladies, and a few unicorns! gather at Holme Pierrepont for this year’s Pretty Muddy Race for Life in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Active Nottingham had a corporate time slot or “wave” all to ourselves which meant that 200 staff and customers many of who are Flexible Fitness members from our 8 leisure centres all ran together and tackled the obstacles as a team to help raise money for such a great cause.

We were amazed at how many of our customers took part, and we want to say a big THANK YOU!

Charm leading the warm up

After an awesome warm up led by non other that Charm of Zumba with Charm, which got everyone in the spirit, they were ready for the off!

There was a real buzz as everyone crossed the start line and headed off to the first obstacle.

Event staff around the course were brilliant, as they supported and encouraged everyone to get as muddy as possible and have fun!

The race (not that it really is one) culminates in a rope climb and slide into a mud pit, which really made sure that everyone was covered by the time they crossed the finish line to be congratulated by friends and family that had gathered to cheer them on.

Everyone had a wonderful time and even though it was a little chilly,  everyone was proud to show off their medals at the end and many visited our stall for their free Fitness and Tennis passes.

We all know someone who’s touched by cancer and doing something like Pretty Muddy Race for Life is a great way of showing our support.

Will we be doing it again next year……you bet!

Our staff and customers

Here’s Lorna, the event organiser from Cancer Research UK, with a special message for every one of our Active Nottingham Muddy Maidens!

Ramnik – 6 months later

As one of the faces of our January Flexible Fitness Campaign, Ramnik appeared on banners across the City and on all our social media channels.

It’s been a fantastic experience, feeling that I’m inspiring others to exercise.


His story reached out to many, inspiring you to be more active and make some really positive health and lifestyle choices.

It’s been 6 months now and we recently caught up with Ramnik again: here’s what he said………

“Wow, what a six months it’s been!

I’ve very nearly completed my Level 2 qualification in Gym Instructing along with gaining my CPD’s (Continuous Professional Development) in TRX Suspension Training and Kettlebells Training, to be shortly followed by Circuits, Group Training, Strength and Conditioning, and Boxing & Pad work!”

“If I’m gonna do something, I’m gonna do it wholeheartedly.”

I’ve been busy launching my new website and I’ve also started delivering sessions in One2One Personal Training!  I shot my first professional fitness video this month for release on social media later this year too, it’s all very exciting!

“My Flexible Fitness Membership is still proving to be great value for money as exercise is a great way to relax after a busy day at work.

I increased my training regime earlier this year, to compete in ‘Tough Mudder’ at Belvoir Castle in May where I challenged myself to run 10 Miles and completed all 27 obstacles. It was hard, but great fun and really rewarding; it’s amazing what you can achieve when you challenge your mind and body.

Obviously as a member, increasing my visits to the gym doesn’t cost me any more money, no matter how many times I train a week.”


“My little girl is following in my footsteps by joining Nottingham Swim School.  She’s just completed her first 10 weeks and is loving it!

She did a 5k Race for Life last week for Cancer Research, which is pretty impressive for a 5 year old.

Lastly, but probably most excitingly, I’m going to start my Level 3 Personal Traini

ng Diploma at the end of this month and I’m expecting to start work this summer once I’m qualified. You never know I could be delivering a class in a local leisure centre soon!”

“It really has changed my world for the better…”

Meet Ramnik

…A 39-year-old learning and development trainer and freelance photographer

“If I’m gonna do something, I’m gonna do it wholeheartedly.”

Ramnik started training at the gym when he was 26 years old.

Like a lot of people, he wanted to get lean… but his main goal was to improve his overall wellbeing. For Ramnik, training is less about vanity and bulking up and more about de-stressing and being healthier in every sense of the word.

“I’ve gone through anxiety, a lot of hardship… Everyone’s got baggage in their lives, and the gym is a great place to let that go.”

Ramnik started his Flexible Fitness membership 7 years ago, with a free One2One Programme at Ken Martin Leisure Centre. Throughout the four sessions, Angie, one of the fitness advisors, provided tailored advice and support.

Soon, Ramnik started circuit training classes and began to take his fitness more seriously – learning about anatomy and nutrition through online research and talking to his trainers.

He’s since gone on to participate in triathlons and other endurance Obstacle Course Race events, and he’s currently training for Tough Mudder in May this year.

“Every New Year, everyone wants to diet, everyone wants to go to the gym… Fitness is a lifestyle. It’s something that becomes part of what you do. And you keep doing it.”

Ramnik makes use of his Flexible Fitness membership 3–6 times a week, at leisure centres across the city. Though he mainly uses the gyms – for bodyweight training, HIIT, spinning, and running – Ramnik also enjoys swimming occasionally and relaxing in the health suites.

He’s now taken his interest in fitness to the next level, having started a Level 2 Diploma in Fitness Instructor, with plans to progress to a Level 3 in Personal Trainer next.

When he’s not working, training or studying (!), Ramnik is a busy dad to his 4-year-old daughter. Taking after her dad, she’s already completed Notts Gym Tots Level 1 and run a 3k to raise money for breast cancer research!

“It really has changed my world for the better…”
