Boot camp workout for Leuchie’s Total Warrior Team

Personal trainer and boot camp instructor, Jaki Tout, put members of Team Leuchie through their paces on Thursday in a challenging workout session to help them get ready for Total Warrior next month.

Total Warrior, billed as the pinnacle of obstacle racing, returns to East Lothian’s Balgone Estate on 10 September and eight staff and supporters of Leuchie House have signed up for the second year to tackle the daunting 10K challenge to raise funds for the charity.

Jaki, who used to volunteer at Leuchie House, offered to run a training session for the team to help them prepare and give them advice on the areas to focus on before the big day. In her workout on the Leuchie lawn, she put the team through a range of exercises designed to build the strength and stamina they’ll need to complete the gruelling challenge. Jaki, a Personal Trainer at Sandstone Fitness Training, said: “I was delighted to be in a position to offer an additional strength and conditioning session to prepare the Warriors for their challenge ahead. Leuchie is an amazing local charity which I’m happy to support wherever I can. Very best of luck to the Total Warrior team. With their enthusiasm and determination, they’ll do brilliantly.”

The Total Warrior challenge is known as “the ultimate test of stamina, strength and determination”. As well as running 10km, the team will need to tackle 30 extreme obstacles, including ‘Peaks of Pain’, ‘The Shocker’ and ‘The Worm Muncher’!

Leuchie’s Events & Community Fundraiser, Tracy Lonie, said: “We’re so pleased that another Leuchie team has risen to the Total Warrior challenge. Last year, the event raised ove £8000 for Leuchie which is a great addition to our ongoing fundraising efforts. As ever, we’d welcome any support people can offer. If you’d like to support Team Leuchie, all you need to do is text ‘LEUC13 £5’ to 70070 to make a £5 donation.”
