Chalfont The Fit Gym hosts Movember rowing challenge

Two athletes prepare for a grueling challenge to help raise awareness of mental health.

Sports fans Robin Cook, 29, and Alex Nelson, 31, are taking part in a 24-hour rowing challenge today in support of Movember.

The Movember movement, made famous by people growing their mustaches for the month of November, raises awareness about mental health, suicide prevention, and prostate and testicular cancer.

Rubin said: “I’ve found throughout my time as a trainer that 90 per cent of my clients start with a physical transformation of some kind, but it turns out to be more mentally unloading and facilitating for them.

“Everyone is going through their own problems that no one else would have a clue about, so what we thought was a lot of people are going through horrible times in their heads, we’re going to put ourselves through something particularly stressful to be able to raise money and hopefully help those who are struggling.” “.

Rubin said the most challenging part of the feud would be the night.

Once Monday’s done, they’ll be desperate for a big meal and they’ll have a steak.

“We’ll just try to find some food, and we’ll go where we can. You’ll burn about 10,000 calories, so we’ll need fuel,” Rubin added.
