Anytime the right time to be charitably fit

ANYTIME Fitness in Gympie are aiming to have more community involvement, and it seems the business is off to a roaring start.

Since they opened in February, business partners Larissa Petersen and Joey Christie have jumped into the local community feet first.

"We want to give back to local charities," Larissa said.

"That's right. We want to get into the community more,"Joey added.

At the moment the company is working on organising a free bootcamp at the Gympie High School in an effort to get teenage kids moving.

Other recent projects have included fundraising sausage sizzles for Gympie Community Action Group and donating Easter eggs on Easter Sunday to patients at the Gympie Hospital.

Larissa and Joey intend to continue helping out in the community where possible, including making monetary donations to different local charities.

"They'll definitely be 100% Gympie charities," Larissa said.

Local sporting clubs are of particular interest to the pair. They also intend to run a toy appeal closer to christmas, among other events.
