A FITNESS instructor is celebrating after she hosted a charity boot camp which raised over £500 for a children’s charity.
Gaynor Stobie, of Thirlmere Road, Hightown, took more than 60 people through their paces at Merchant Taylors’ Boys School on January 14.
The boot camp launched Gaynor’s new programme of fitness events which will take place in Crosby and Hightown over the coming weeks.
Gaynor, 42, said: “I really started to make fitness part of my life after the birth of my first daughter.
“This is a time when many women can start to lose their confidence as their bodies can completely change shape and their energy levels can be very low.
“I was amazed at how much better I felt and how quickly my body got into shape. I had more energy and I got my self esteem back; it felt great!
Local businesses including Encore, The Piano Shop, Lyncroft Organic Farm, Baby Ballet and Nature to Nurture all donated gifts to a prize draw which took place after the fat burning session which saw people of all ages take part.
“It was a fantastic, fun night with an amazing turnout,” said Gaynor.
“There was a real mix of fitness abilities and ages with kids aged 12 to women aged 75 all having fun and getting fit!”
The money raised was donated to Zoe’s Place, which offers respite care to babies with life-threatening illnesses.
