Local Xercise4Less gym has set-up a series of healthy community initiatives throughout February in support of registered blood cancer charity ‘Anthony Nolan’.
The month-long fund raising mission invites members of the general public to use the gym facilities and take part in a variety of fitness challenges with the chance to win free gym memberships. A £1 (minimum) donation is required to enter each challenge. All proceeds go towards Anthony Nolan.
Anthony Nolan works to save the lives of people with blood cancer through their donor register, securing donations of blood stem cells or bone marrow to provide people with blood cancer and blood disorders with vital transplants.
Xercise4Less Leeds will be inviting members and their friends to see if they could become a potential match on the donor list in a bid to save more lives. The gym will donate £1 for every new member that joins the donor registry.
Challenges will be set on ‘Special Monday’s’ from 5-8pm, and those participating will have the chance to win a free gym membership.
Monday 13th Feb: The wall sit challenge (£1 donation to enter. Hold this pressure position for as long as you possibly can for your chance to win a 3 month gym membership).
Monday 20th Feb: Super He-Row Challenge – Dress up and sport as your favourite super hero for the day as you take on the Xercise4Less rowing challenge. £1 donation to enter. Winners get a free 6 month gym membership.

Monday 27th Feb: The protein hold. Hold out 2 tubs of 1kg protein, arms stretched, for as long as you possibly can for your chance to win a 3 month gym membership.
