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…”
