With the FIFA World Cup well underway, children from local football teams and schools have been invited to the event to put their questions to Alex during a Q and A session organised for local youngsters (and potential England stars of the future).

Steve Butters, co-founder of Pro-Fit said: “Having opened our doors just over a month ago we have been overwhelmed by the response with our membership rapidly increasing week on week. 

“We’re building a friendly and inclusive fitness community and we wanted to officially mark our launch with an event to give people the chance to pop down and see what we’re all about. We also wanted to give something back to the local community so invited Alex along to help inspire children (and adults) in the region.

“Our open event is designed to be a fun and laid back afternoon, with the chance to pop in and say hello, meet our trainers and members, workout with us (if you like) and experience our full offering – including our new cryogenic chamber. Everyone is also welcome to come along to meet Alex from 4pm.

“Our doors are open between 2pm and 6pm and we look forward to welcoming in as many people as possible.”

The Pro-Fit open day will operate on a drop-in basis, however you can pre-register to take part in the events on the Pro-Fit personal training page.
