Fitness, fun and friendships



Local trainers Kate Rushworth and Cherie Garland decided that it was time to give back to the community with their time and knowledge and last October introduced a way for people to hit the streets in a safer environment and it has grown into quite the community in Pukekohe.
“We have a mixed group of people (walkers and runners) who join us three mornings a week at 6am for a walk or run.
As we have grown, we find we have runners finding similar paced runners to run with and walkers finding similar paced walkers – so they aren’t alone doing their walk/run and they are wanting to turn up due to the friends expecting to see them”
As trainers they run group classes and one of the class participants wanted to attempt a recent Tough Guy Tough Girl challenge so Kate and Cherie got the Body Blast walkers, runners and class members together and went to Woodhill!
“An amazing day was had with fun, laughter, friendships cemented – along with lots of mud!” Cherie says.
For more information on the activities, contact Kate and Cherie on or Kate on: 021 775 691 or Cherie on: 027 222 0 222.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
