Mid way through week two of my ‘Spring into Summer’ fitness regime and the results continue to surprise.

Tim Megginson and his work out regime may not be for everyone but then again the eclectic group that meets thrice weekly from 6.15am in Ely proves that it can be everyone.

It’s friendly, for all age groups and its non competitive – the only competition as such is with your own self to improve constantly as the programme kicks in.

An alarm that goes off at 4.45am is not necessarily for the faint hearted but it’s also surprising how quickly the mind – maybe not the body- adapts.

Intense training as developed by Tim Megginson also comes with a surprising guarantee – lose a clothes size in the first 28 days or your money back.

“The basics of our approach are carefully co-ordinated challenging exercise sessions which we tailor to your ability, good nourishing healthy eating – not a diet-and the motivation and expertise from a devoted personal trainer,” says Tim.

Although he runs sessions at other times of the day there is something cathartic about joining others so early in the day. Plenty of mums take part regularly – one told me she’s home by 7.10am and in time to get her children up, then fed and clothed before doing the school run.

Another, a teacher, swears by the regularity of the early morning work out to face a hectic day at one of the area’s most challenging of schools.

It’s also good to see at Ely this year some of those who won taster sessions in our 2014 promotion and followed that up by joining on a more regular basis.

The taster sessions are important – which is why we are inviting our readers to join our 2015 competition which offers £1,200 worth of prizes to help you improve your overall fitness and health.

In conjunction with our business awards winner Tim we’re offering places on his ’boot camp’ style fitness programmes in Soham, Chatteris and Ely.

You can win either a month’s series of courses or a one week taster series and at times and venues to suit.
