I am not the fittest of people. The last time I took part in sport actively was playing hockey for school and a local hockey team last millennium. The last time I ran was when I saw that there was a half price salmon on the reduced to clear at Tesco and someone else was heading for it. Joking aside (the Tesco thing did happen by the way), I am in awe of people who make fitness a priority in their lives and find them incredibly inspiring. That is why I am supporting Roel Jansen from Fit For Anything’s entry into the Obstacle Course Race (OCR) World Championships next month (October 2017).
Roel is an experienced personal trainer working in and around Chorleywood, helping scores of people fulfil their fitness goals, looking at everything from bespoke training plans to nutrition. In addition to this Roel somehow finds the time to train and compete in a number of events throughout the year, and doesn’t do too badly in them either!! His last big event was at the OCR European Championships in the Netherlands which clearly went well and he is proud (yet far too modest!) to have been chosen to compete in the OCR World Championships in Canada.
Like most athletes, unless they are sponsored by a major brand, Roel is having to fund his event attendance himself. Already clients of his have been keen to contribute towards his goal and there is a GoFund Me account set up so that business and individuals may also help Roel realise his dream of attending this event via sponsorship.
Please have a read of this blog post which tells you more about the event itself and also how businesses especially may benefit in turn by contributing to this very worthy fitness-related cause.
If you want to know more about the services that Roel Jansen offers in and around the Chorleywood area, as well as to read information and advice on all aspects of fitness have a nosy at his Facebook Page.
Good luck Roel!
