LA Fitness is opening its doors to non-members this weekend in a bid to raise money for Prince Harry’s charity ‘Walking with the Wounded’.

Prince Harry is joining his team on the South Pole Challenge in a bid to walk the 335km to the South Pole in sub zero temperatures.

And LA Fitness wants the city of Milton Keynes to match their trek by running, dancing or swimming the equivalent of a kilometre to raise funds for the charity.

From September 14-16, LA Fitness’ doors will be open to anybody who wants to take part in the event, even if you aren’t a member of the gym.

The club is also putting on fun South Pole themed classes, such a Polar Bear HIT (High Intensity Training) on Sunday at 11.15am and Charity Circuits on Saturday at 11am.

Anybody taking part will be invited to donate £3.35 to cover at least 1km on any gym equipment – from treadmills to steppers or even a South Pole themed studio class the company has created.

The charity raises funds to support our wounded, injured and sick as they make the difficult transition from military to civilian employment.

Prince Harry explained: “The vision behind ‘Walking With The Wounded’ – to reintegrate wounded servicemen and women successfully back into civilian life – recognises the unquenchable spirit and drive of these young people.

“It aims to harness their determination and energy, whilst adjusting their mind-set to face the numerous challenges that lie ahead.

“I urge everyone to support them.”
