There’s a new fitness craze in town, just don’t call it a boot camp.

Ozonefit, run by Rob Partington, 36, is set to get pulses racing with milatary-style fitness.

Classes will be starting up in Worden Park on March 24 and promises to banish the pounds with a traditional hard work-out.

Rob, who is a physical training instructor at HMP Garth in Ulnes Walton, said: “We ask people to work hard, but the rewards are there for everyone to see.

“You work to your own level and we do push but it would be pointless if you didn’t get any encouragement.

“All of our instructors are from a background in the military or are sportsmen.

“They are experts in their field.”

A typical class will include jogging and running drills, press ups and sit ups, and relays.

Rob said: “We try and disguise the hard work, but sometimes you can’t.

“We move around and will start off with warm ups and then do running drills and press ups and sit ups.

“We do circuit based sessions but not circuit training. Then we might do a cool down and a couple of relays.”

Ozonefit currently has classes across Lancashire, including in Chorley’s Astley Park.

Rob said: “We’re trying to build a community throughout Lancashire and Worden Park is a key piece to the puzzle.

“It’s a great atmosphere and we just attract really nice people.

“We have been in Chorley for just over a year and have about 19 in a class. It’s a really nice group of people.

“The classes are suited to everybody. Anyone can do it, you just work to your own ability.

“We had one guy who lost seven and a half stone just by watching what he was eating and exercising with us. He was 23 stone when he started.”

Rob runs the company part time as well as training at HMP Garth, a job he has been doing for nine years.

He said: “We started three years ago and have eight instructors working with us at the moment, but we will looking to recruit more.

“It’s going really well, considering I only do it part time.”

The classes will run on Tuesdays, Thursday and Fridays. For more information, visit www.ozonefit.co.uk
