Reigate will burn 70,000 calories for Sport Relief

The average says that an active women between the ages of 31 to 50 burns 2,200 calories per day. The next Friday Reigate will have burned more than 70,000 calories at the end of the day. This is the goal of the Speedflexathon, organised by On Premium Fitness gym to raise money for Sport Relief. The challenge will start at 9:00 am and every hour will have a class until the last session at 6:00 pm. The Speedflexathon has generated great interest in the community and the great thing is that everyone can take part in the activity booking a place or simply donating. Lauren Hills, one of the One Premium staff that is organising the event, tell us the story behind this activity. 

- How did the idea of a Speedflexathon arise?

The idea initially came from our West Byfleet Speedflex Studio, a few month ago they completed a 100,000 calories challenge in one day for children in need, which was a huge hit and raised a lot of money. We decided this was a great idea and we’d like to get involved with fundraising! We looked into charities and Sport Relief stood out to us. We want to encourage people to get involved with fitness, as a team agreed this would be a great charity to support, because most of the fundraising Sport Relief do is based around exercising, and that is what we do best!

- Why did you choose Speedflex?

Now that answer is easy, we chose Speedflex because all ages and levels of fitness can participate! Our Speedflex sessions are high intensity, low impact and personal trainer led. You can expect to burn hundreds of calories in just one, 45 minutes Speedflex session.

- What is your goal?

Our goal is to support and raise money for Sport Relief, by using our expert trainers at One Premium Fitness to run a fun filled day, full of Speedflex sessions, a DJ and fancy dress, encouraging more people to get moving!

- How many calories do you plan to burn on the day?

We have the potential to burn over 72,000 calories between all of our participants on the day!

- Who can participate in the event?

Everyone can participate in our Speedflexathon, above the age of 16. Speedflex has been designed for any age or fitness level, Speedflex enables everyone to exercise at high intensities, but at levels set by each individual.

- What is being the feedback from the community?

As soon as everyone heard about our event, it has had a spike of interest, we have a lot of members who are interested and constantly asking questions about participating and contributing towards Sport Relief. In fact, one of our Speedflex members has taken the day off of work to participate in all 10 sessions! That is whooping 450 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training... in one day!
We are also holding a raffle, all of the prizes have been donated by local businesses in Reigate; we have received some amazing prizes, from the likes of: Benefit, COOK, DASH barbers, Clove, The Art of Living, Mishikos and Reigate Beauty Room.. We are extremely grateful for their participation in our event, and hope that with their kindness we can raise lots of money for Sport Relief!
