Social activities for people with sight loss, in the Brighton and Hove Area
Argus Charity of the year 2008
City Synergy Boot Camp
25th January 2014
City Synergy finished the Christmas and New Year celebrations with an exercise boot camp in Preston Park to shed the excess mince-pie inches around the waist.
A magnificent seven turned up on a misty moisty morning to be taken through their paces by Major Jump and side-kick Corporal Punishment. Tests of skill. Tests of endurance. Tests of initiative. Tests of supreme courage. None of these featured in the exercise class that started at 10am and finished about an hour later.
We did have fun. Although we collectively lost no more than a few ounces, we felt better for it. Astonishingly we were approached by a bystander who wanted to enroll in our class next week. Rosemary enjoyed one game so much she wanted to do it again - so we did. And who knows, we may do the whole thing again sometime soon.
