CHARLTON Clarke, a manager at at Bournemouth University's on-campus gym, will complete 34 fitness classes over seven days – a total of 27.75 hours of exercise - to raise funds for Comic Relief.
Charlton, who also teaches fitness classes at the Talbot Campus gym, hopes to raise at least £500 for his Lbs for £s Challenge through an online donation site and collection buckets.
He will be taking part in up to seven classes a day – including spinning, pilates and Legs, Bums and Tums - from Monday 4th March until Sunday 10th March.
Charlton, 25, said: "I have always wanted to do something for Red Nose Day – I see all the celebrities doing the massive challenges and get a bit jealous.
"I am here on a daily basis, so I thought it would be interesting just to see how many classes I could do in a week. Then I thought I may as well combine it with raising money."
The challenge will see Charlton complete some of the half hour and hour long classes consecutively – doing them throughout the day while working normal hours in between.
Charlton, of Westbourne, will also be taking part in classes that he normally teaches and will attempt his first ever Zumba class.
