Last year we took 17 clients from FX Fitness Experience in Burnley – who took on the toughest, muddiest obstacle course challenge of their lives at the North West Tough Mudder event in Cheshire on 13 September.
‘Team FX’, from the Fitness Experience Personal training centre, Burnley put a team of 17 men and women from age 22 to 56 through the challenging endurance course . A family owned business meant that Mum- Sue Kennedy and 2 her sons Jamie and Josh (all Personal Trainers at the centre) undertook the course together with 14 clients and staff who train at the Personal Training centre.
Tough Mudder is a hardcore 12 mile obstacle and mud run event designed by British Special Forces to challenge the toughest of the tough. Electric shocks, icy water and endless filth – Tough Mudder is the endurance test that throws everything at its competitors. By the end of 2014 two million men and women aged 18 and over will have entered a Tough Mudder event. It even requires entrants to sign a death waiver!
See you in the MUD!!

Over 30 Fitness Experience clients of all different fitness levels and running ability turned out on Valentines Day morning wearing red to run a 10k run as part of TEAM FX annual programme of events and training plans.
The Valentines day run was the idea of Personal Trainer at FX Sue Kennedy who takes the FX Running Club every Wednesday night. Sue wanted to get clients in training for various running events and challenges ‘Team FX’ will be taking on this year from the Liverpool Half marathon, Pennine Lancashire 10k run and Tough Mudder North West in September. The Red Valentines Day theme also fitted nicely with the Fitness Experience’s support of the British Heart Foundation’s #WearItBeatIT campaign in February. So everyone who ran the 10k race made a donation to the British Heart Foundation.
The 10k route took in some of Burnley’s finest parks and countryside and was a warm up for the Pennine lancashire 10k run on 28th June in Burnley.
It was the first time several clients had ever run a 10k race whilst others were working on achieving their personal best. Whatever your running ability or fitness levels FX fitness have a personal training programme that can help you get fit and achieve things you never dreamed you could!
FX Clients Kate and Paul Healey – even joined us with their 4 week old baby girl ‘Elizabeth Grace’ -(our 1st FX baby!) – they walked the route with us and newborn baby Elizabeth has done her first 10k already (kind of!)
Jamie Kennedy, Personal Trainer and FX Centre Manager said ‘This is my favourite photo of the day that shows what FX is about. I hope everyone can see how diverse the clients are at #teamFX are. If someone asks what type of fitness or health do I need to be in to train at FX – we can honestly say ‘any’. From fitness professionals like Danny Ings to everyday people . I am so proud of whatFX Fitness Experience clients achieved today.
Staff & Clients at The Fitness Experience Personal Training Centre in Burnley are painting the place ‘RED’ today in Support of the British Heart Foundation ‘WEAR IT. BEAT IT’ day on Friday 6th February.

The FX ‘Next Steps’ Event held on Sunday 28th September on forthcoming changes at FX and nutrition/ diet was a huge success. We were overwhelmed by the turn out and positive feedback we received from clients.
Over 50 people turned out to learn the science behind diets and nutrition and periodised programming at FX, with a chance to sample products and understand more about ‘macros’ (how you balance your proteins, fats and carbohydrates in your diet) which FX Fitness are experienced in to assess you and come up with a formula that is personal to you.
The 6 Personal Trainers at FX Fitness delivered several presentations to get clients focussed on their ‘NEXT STEPS’ with FX, as well as news on our new website, new packages and launch of our NEW 12 week ‘Body Transformation’ . The event ended with a lively Q & A session and a bit of socialising at the bar! We’re supporting our clients on their FX journey to health, fitness and wellbeing. Look out for details our next FX seminar coming soon.
