Ex-sol­dier ex­pands his fit­ness classes

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

A new fit­ness regime that was launched in Ash­ford is plan­ning to ex­pand across the county.

Timba was cre­ated by Wil­liam Head, a former Army fit­ness in­struc­tor from Ald­ing­ton, which uses sticks along with high and low in­ten­sity car­dio and part­ner ex­er­cises to pro­vide an in­tense work­out.

The cur­rent class, which be­gan in early Au­gust, runs ev­ery Fri­day from 6.30 to 7.30pm at the North School, how­ever due its suc­cess Mr Head has now be­gun an­other class in Ald­ing­ton.

He said: “It’s go­ing re­ally well. I’ve got up to 20 mem­bers al­ready and my ca­pac­ity is 25.”

Mr Head cre­ated the con­cept of Timba from his pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ences in the Army.

He said: “Quite of­ten we would not have ac­cess to any gym equip­ment, es­pe­cially if we were away from base, so we would im­pro­vise with what­ever kit was avail­able.”

The new ses­sions are held in Ald­ing­ton Vil­lage Hall ev­ery Mon­day from 9am to 10am.

Mr Head said: “I’m even­tu­ally look­ing to ex­pand and open classes in Folke­stone, Maid­stone and Can­ter­bury and then even­tu­ally ev­ery town in Kent.”
