Help people improve their physical and mental wellbeing. Funds will be used to open a third Strength& group, in Harlow.

Just wanted to let you know I have started a Crowdfunding project for Strength&. Strength& is a great outdoor training community and with two groups currently  running, in Hertford and Stevenage, we want to expand further afield. The team wish to open another in Harlow soon, so they can help others improve their physical and mental wellbeing.

I would like others have the chance to benefit in the same way so I will be participating in carrying heavy objects, the equivalent distance from Stevenage to the Eiffel Tower, 239 miles. My personal aim will be to complete at least 1km a week, carrying a minimum of 35kg, alongside a group of friends that I train with.

Strength& for mind, body, friendship and of course strength. Regardless of who you are - how good or bad your current physical shape - Strength& is designed with you in mind. We don’t pose. We don’t bark orders. We don’t do ego. We do train smart and support one another - on and off the field.

Every session starts with a warm-up. Some bear crawls perhaps? Or a deck of cards? Short and intense, you’ll be warmed-up in six minutes or less. After that we work on strength, focusing on pulling, carrying, pushing and lifting - the quickest way to build functional muscle. Our kit list includes: atlas stones, yokes, tractor tyres, prowlers, sledges, farmers handles, sandbags, sledge hammers, axle bars, dumbbells, olympic bars, trap bars, ropes, harnesses and, of course, plenty of weight plates.

While training for all that strength we certainly don't neglect conditioning either. Aerobic capacity is the key to applying your strength for longer - meaning you can move even more weight. Our programming includes plenty of carries, weighted runs, timed pushes, aerobic pulls and team games with sandbags - as well as more traditional conditioning exercises.

If you'd like to find out more about Strength& - or even better,  become a member yourself - check out www.strengthand.com - or search Strength& here on Crowdfunder.  Everyone's first session is free: https://strengthand.com/free-trial
