The 12 days of Christmas has inspired a rigorous gym challenge in aid of the Advertiser's Community Appeal.
Eddie Johnson (pictured), a self-employed personal trainer based at the Magnet Leisure Centre in Maidenhead has devised the 12 Minutes of Christmas Gym Challenge which isn't for the faint-hearted.
He said: "The aim is to provide customers with something that they can do together and engage with the staff. It ties in nicely with the spirit of the Community Appeal."
The gruelling workout includes completing as many activities as possible in 12 minutes, including 350 metres on the rower, 15 repetitions on leg press machine, 0.07 miles on the stepper, 15 repetitions on the shoulder press machine, 0.15 miles on the treadmill, 15 repetitions on the seated row machine, 20 calories on the bike, 15 press ups, 0.15 miles on the AMT machine and 15 repetitions on the assisted chin machine.
Membership and training prizes will be on offer, including a first prize of three personal training sessions with Eddie's company.
It costs £5 to take part and all of the money raised goes to the Advertiser's Community Appeal, run in partnership with the Magnet Leisure Centre. The appeal helps groups across Maidenhead fund day trips and group events throughout the year, as well as their Christmas parties.
The challenge starts at the Magnet today and runs until Friday, December 16.
