40 British Military Fitness sessions in 28 days to raise money for the Motivational and Learners Trust.

British Military Fitness is an outdoor fitness group which is not for the faint hearted. This is where we challenge participants to their max. The classes are highly rated by our seasoned members, who are now fit enough to be pushed to their limit and beyond. The class begins with a warm up, followed by 50 minutes of intense and effective and varied fitness training. 

The average distance covered in a winter session is 4 miles.

4 miles x 38 sessions =152 miles in 28 days.

Average of 100 of pressups, situps and squats per session

100 x 38 sessions =      3800 Pressups in 28 days                                                                                    3800 Sit ups in 28 days                                                                                        3800 Squats in 28 days                                                            

                                  Added with all the BURPEES!!!!!!!!!

Plus High intensity hill sprints, relay races, piggy back, firemen and cradle carries. The list is endless.......

To say that this task will be difficult is an understatement, 

ALL YOUR SUPPORT WILL BE A HUGE MOTIVATOR FOR ME and will get me through those cold 5am alarms ;-)

 The sessions are outdoor  in all weather conditions.

Motivation and Learning Trust

The Motivational Preparation College for Training (MPCT) has been actively engaged in the enhancement of life chances for young people for over fourteen years. The success of the education and training strategies employed by MPCT have made an enormous difference to young people who may not have found their way easily into adulthood, employment and as a contributing member of society. It is apparent that a significant number of young people who enrol on the MPCT programme need additional financial and resource assistance in order to help meet their potential. Quite simply the motivation, support and encouragement they receive at MPCT is not always mirrored at home.

The formation of the Motivation & Learning Trust (MLT) young people’s charity is designed to meet this need. MLT will take a proactive and decisive role in ensuring that young people within the MPCT family who need assistance get it. In exceptional circumstances the trustees will consider the needs of young people outside of this. We will do this in the following ways:

We know that some of our young people struggle to find safe and secure living environments. We will therefore provide support and Emergency Aid including ex-gratia payments to those students of MPCT who require it in order to provide a safe and secure environment in the short term.

We know that some of our young people struggle to present themselves to best effect when seeking employment. They simply cannot afford clothing and the necessary personal effects to enhance their chances. We act as an enabler for young people who are or have been students of MPCT in the form of practical assistance in order to enhance their life chances in the challenging arena of employment and to enable them to participate fully in society as responsible, independent and mature adults.

We will provide practical physical resources to enhance the opportunities of young people who are or have been students of MPCT on order to develop their skills and increase their participation within society and improve their employability.

For the public benefit we promote the extended education of students who are or have been students at MPCT in such ways as the trustees think fit, including by:

Providing their education by providing travel opportunities to undertake historical visits to significant battlefields and militarily historical venues.

Providing bespoke standalone educational opportunities as the trustees see fit in order to enhance the life chances of such students.

We will act as a resource in advancing the education of young people who are or have been students of MPCT under the age of 25 years (and exceptionally other young people who would benefit from assistance) by developing their mental, physical and moral capabilities through team orientated physical activities over and beyond the core curriculum.

MLT needs your help in order to achieve its aims. With your help we can and will make a difference in the formative stages of the lives of the young people with whom we work.
