Members at Caversham Health & Fitness constantly inspire us with their success and achievements whether it is weight loss, fitness or accomplishing a challenge which they have set themselves and trained hard for.
One such member is Barabara Frost, 61, who is planning a solo cycle ride from Rome to Reading next year to raise money for Buscot Babies, special care baby unit, at the Royal Berkshire Hospital. In 2010 Barbara cycled from Lands End to John O’Groats and raised £6772 for Homestart Reading but this time her target is £10,000.
Barbara works with personal trainer Steve Whiteside at Caversham Health & Fitness. At the moment they are working on Barbara’s strength and endurance but after Christmas they’ll be gearing up to what Barbara describes as ‘boot camp’ to get her to peak fitness for the gruelling 1500 mile cycle. For building core strength to help with all the hours leaning over the bike Barabara does a weekly ‘Pilates’ class and for flexibility ‘ Stretch and Tone’.
Barbara is holding a fundraising Quiz Night on Thursday 10th November 2011. The entry fee of £10 includes a Bar Copa curry. All funds raised go to the Buscot babies (www.justgiving.com/barbara-frost). Please do get a team together and support this event.
