Early last year 2015 onfirefitness was asked by some student from the Winchester university to help run , organise and host a fundraising event with a Health and Fitness twist , as we at onfirefitness run a regular Bootcamp in Winchester we were the people to get on board.

I’m all for giving and helping so onfirefitness jumped at the chance to get involved. The idea was for us to offer people beginning there health journey or were exercise veterans the public of Winchester the chance to have a taster of some other sport / fitness / exercise that they may not tried or were unaware of in their local community.

The idea was for us to help run the the day organise other instructors bringing them on board offering lots of different work shops from Boxing , Hiit training , body mechanics/ movement , running etc
we also got in touch with local business to hold stands selling everything from training equipment ( trainers , nutrition supplements ) also entertainment like a bounce castle and a roadeo.
