Summer bootcamp, just for the drill of it

Fundraising in Bangor for a worthwhile cause doesn’t come as tough as this, but expect “plenty of fun” in the two day 12 hour fitness bootcamp taking place next month.

Local woman Nicki Maginnis is leading the female fitness drill to raise money for the World Missions Relief that’s to take place next Friday and Saturday, August 5 and 6, from 10am to 10pm on the green off Gransha Road (near the Ward park tennis courts and car park).

Fully qualified trainer Nicki told the Community Telegraph: “People who would like to get fit for free can take the opportunity for 10 minutes worth of exercise or any length of period in the course of the 12 hours.

“For those who are going to take part for as long as they can, it’s a great opportunity to get sponsored per hour of fitness.

“The money raised over the two days will be going to the Hand of Hope, a missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Putting it simply this charity works all over the world to help as many hurting people as they possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.

“Her ministry has also helped me immeasurably, and I see this bootcamp as a chance to give back and to actually attract good numbers and gather a great donation is exciting.

“With the event outdoors, people can walk by and donate to, but I do hope they have a go with the fitness too, even it is just for a few minutes!”

Bangor resident, Julia Jordon, who regularly attends circuit workouts and will be heading down for the day said: “We are all looking part to this event, yes there’s lots of squatting and lots of lunges, but it’s all worth it in the end. It will be hard work but a lot of fun!”
