THE “King of Boot Camps” is coming to Roefield Leisure in aid of the Prostate Cancer Support Group,

Ribble Valley’s Rob Edmond, the tough trainer from the ITV show “The Biggest Loser”, is renowned for his no-nonsense approach on the ultimate boot camp series. The former SAS man has appeared on television screens earlier this year whipping the contestants into shape on the popular fat loss show hosted by Davina McCall. He more recently joined a select few including Chris Boardman and Josh Lewsey to represent England as a part of the celebrity team for the Sport Relief’s DHL First Nation Home Challenge. He didn’t let the side down and his team won by some margin.

Now, he is keen to give something back to his local area and has offered to arrange an exclusive bootcamp on Sunday, June 10th, at 4 p.m. for registered charity Roefield, with proceeds going to the East Lancashire Prostate Cancer Support Group (ELPCSG).

Tony Rodia, manager at the Clitheroe fitness centre in Edisford Road, has chosen to support ELPCSG having experienced firsthand the advice and support they give to hundreds of prostate cancer patients and their families from early diagnosis to post-operative treatments. He explained: “The support group explains to families how best to come to terms with their own difficulties and the ways in which the cancer can affect their lives. The support group is a voluntary organisation and exists on donations and fund-raising events such as this.”

The 90-minute fat burning boot camp session can be attended by anyone, beginners upwards. Aimed at all levels Rob intends to give Ribble Valley people the “full experience” including showing them some of the techniques which made him so successful on the show. The session will produce some sweating, but it will be fun and highly motivational. It can be used to compliment individual’s current training or might just be the kick start they need to get them on the road to a new body.

Anyone wishing to support the worthwhile cause and book a place on the bootcamp, which will be held at Roefield Playing Fields, is asked to contact Tony Rodia at Roefield Leisure on 01200 442188 or mobile 07866565333.

Tony added: “Your participation in this one off special event goes a long way in creating more awareness and understanding of prostate cancer.”
