FITNESS enthusiasts in Melksham plan to spend 24 hours in the gym over the weekend to raise funds for charity.

The Mighty Titans at New Era Fitness at Bowerhill aim to complete a 24-hour marathon for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

They have already raised £2,760 after smashing through their initial £2,500 target.

Personal trainer D J Hussey, who runs the centre, said: "Twenty-six Mighty Titans will be taking on an entire 24 hour workout to support Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

"We will start at 12pm on Saturday and finish at 12pm on Sunday. We will be training for 24 hours all through the night."

Along the way, the Mighty Titans will aim to complete four runs, five hours of high-intensity interval training, a 90-minute outdoor cycle, two hours of boxing, two hours of strength training and core specific workouts.

In between, they will relax with yoga, pilates and Zumba sessions by Viv Morley, pilates with Corinne Lloyd and Zumba with Rosanna Hood.

Last year, Mr Hussey organised a 1,000-mile relay run from Land's End to John O'Groats which raised £20,000 for Wiltshire Mind.
