FITNESS fanatics lunged, stretched and lifted their way to glory as they raised £300 for Whitby’s lifeboat.

The fund-raising Family Fit Day, the first of its kind, was embraced wholeheartedly by the participants, in spite of poor weather.

Jaclyn Goddard, duty manager at Whitby Leisure Centre, said: “In a first for Whitby, spinning and body bump took place under the Bandstand, while kick boxercise and body combat drew the crowds as they punched, kicked and kata’d through high energy routines.

“Boot camp and body balance brought a totally new feature to the beach, with the Zumba class providing a taste of Bondi for the onlookers.”
