Shavington Leisure Centre supports member attempting a 400 mile challenge!
Shavington Leisure Centre member, Martin Cresswell, 58 years old, originally from East London, is walking the Grand Traverse des Alps (GR5) from Lake Genève to Nice, this August. The challenge is a 400 mile walk with a total elevation equivalent to over three times the size of Mount Everest!
Martin has been attending personal training sessions at Everybody with Amy at Shavington Leisure Centre to support with his training. Martin has made immense progress in his strength, fitness and endurance, which will equip him well for the challenging 400 mile journey ahead.
Amy Stonehewer, Everybody Personal Trainer at Shavington Leisure Centre shared:
“Martin is an incredibly driven and dedicated individual. He always pushes himself to the maximum and I have no doubt that his challenge will be a massive success. He has the mental grit and determination needed to undertake such a
mammoth task and is an absolute pleasure to have as a client. We are all cheering you on from back home!”
Sport has been a big part of Martin’s life, as currently living with cancer, it has given him a focus and positive approach on life. Martin wanted to complete the 400 mile walk creating unforgettable memories, during this inspiring physical and mental solo challenge.
Currently, Martin has raised over £2,900 for his chosen cause in aid of the ‘Youth Sports Trust’, which helps young people participate in and access sport. Visit his JustGiving page here – https://www.justgiving.com/…/martin-cresswell…
