Rb5 personal training Nottingham, are supporting Nottingham Hospitals Charity’s Saving Lives Helipad Appeal by holding a static Rowing Challenge at Queen’s Medical Centre in November 2014. Four rowing machines will be manned continuously for 60 hours between 8am on Friday 21 November and 8pm on Sunday 23 November, with each rower donating at least £10 to the Appeal to take part.

About the 60 Hour Rowing Challenge

The Rowing Challenge will take place near the Main Entrance on B Floor at QMC. With four machines kindly being provided by leading manufacturer Concept2, a total of 240 hours of indoor rowing will be available. One of the rowing machines will be used by the uniformed services, whilst a second will be manned by students from Ashfield Comprehensive. Slots on the other two machines will be thrown open to the public.

As well as paying a fee to take part, rowers will be encouraged to ask friends, family and colleagues to sponsor them and raise as much money as possible for the Saving Lives Helipad Appeal. ‘Our fundraising target for the Rowing Challenge is £2,000,’ says Ricky Berry, Managing Director at Rb5 personal training Nottingham. ‘We’re hoping the event will attract lots of attention from both the media and the general public, which will really help us to achieve this goal.’

FREE workouts and rowing workshops at Rb5 personal training Nottingham.

We want to encourage as many people as possible to take part, whatever their rowing experience or current fitness level. So Concept2 will be running workshops on rowing technique, whilst Rb5 Personal Training Nottingham are offering workouts to help boost fitness levels. These will be completely free of charge so there’s no excuse not to come along!

The first rowing workshop and workout will take place at RB5’s personal training studio on St Anne’s Hill Road, Nottingham, on 8 October at 6pm. A further session will then be held in early November, at a date and time to be confirmed.

Rb5 are looking for teams and individuals to sign up for the 60 hour Rowing Challenge and help fill up the remaining slots on the four indoor rowers. Whilst the minimum time you can book is 30 minutes, you can buy as many slots as you like, subject to availability. So if you fancy doing something a bit different for charity, why not speak to your friends, colleagues or sports teammates and get a few of you together for a team Challenge?
