Hairy moment as Tring gym joins the Movember movement


Male instructors and fitness fanatics in Tring are joining other men nationwide in sprouting upper lip hair for charity.

The national Movember event lasts for the whole of November, and raises money and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer charities.

But growing facial fuzz isn’t enough for the hard task masters at On The Limit in Western Road, as the moustached mob will be put through their paces in a 2,000-metre rowing competition.

The winner – along with the man awarded for the best ‘tache – will received a goodie bag full of well-earned treats.

And women will have a chance to do their bit, too as the gym is organising a three-hour ‘spinathon’ for female members towards the end of the month.

All proceeds from the fundraisers will be split between Movember charities and Rennie Grove Hospice Care.
