The second staging in The Gleaner's Fit 4 Life Season 2 Tuff Enuff Challenge turned the volume way up. It was outdoor madness boot camp with the TrainFit Club, and fitness guru Stokely Rose and the crew ensured participants were trained to be tuff enuff.

Fitness enthusiasts turned out in their numbers on the Calabar High School tracks on Red Hills Road, St Andrew, on Saturday prepared for a great workout and left with every muscle aching, after being worked to the limit.

The outdoor madness involved a five-series circuit that included: boxing fitness with champ Sakima Mullings and his team; hurdles drill with Calabar High School coach, Craig Sewell; coach Errol Messias imparting long-distance method and training secrets; coach Omar Hawles teaching sprint performance training; and the TrainFit team taking participants through plyometrics and core training.

Even after such an intense session, those left standing had to gear up to take the challenges - 15-metre sprint, hurdles and relays.

The winners walked away with prizes from Fit 4 Life, The Gleaner, sponsor Chas E. Ramson and TrainFit.

Power shake made with Foska Oats and Blue Diamond Almond Milk was just what everyone needed to refuel.

Week three of Fit 4 Life Tuff Enuff takes place on Saturday, July 7, with the Body By Kurt team, at 11 Oxford Road, New Kingston (across from The Pegasus hotel back gate).

Everyone is invited to come out to each of the 12-week boot camps, free of cost, as The Gleaner's Fit 4 Life team journeys with Jamaica to a healthy, fitter life.
