BourneFit team complete Wightlink Challenge

After months of preparation D-day had arrived, myself, Andy and Luke had to actually complete the Wight Challenge.  Taking place on the Isle of Wight, the challenge which has run for a number of years involves an offroad 19 mile cycle, 2 mile kayak and 8 mile run.  Here is how it all went..

It was a fairly early start to get to Lymington for the 9:30 ferry along with our ‘support team’ consisting of family members who had mainly come to laugh at us.  A second breakfast on the ferry and a drive to the venue and we ready to be briefed.

The atmosphere was pretty relaxed, teams of 3 preparing in a field, the temperature and sunshine definitely helped.  After about 20 minutes of packing a bag full of tools, food and spares (which I had to carry lads, thanks for that!) we headed for the start line for the bike ride.  Teams went off at 30 second intervals, we were 6th start.

We managed to catch a few of the teams in front as we went.  The first 10 miles involved some pretty rocky climbs and some scenery that was worth the trip over.  Finally we negotiated the coastal terrain for a blast along the road back to camp, catching the last of the leading teams, so we knew it was a decent ride 1:27ish.

A dowsing of flapjacks, sweets and water, then we were into the kayaks.  At this time there was no sign of our ‘supporters’, turned out they chocked off in the car for lunch at a cafe! By the time had completed the kayak they had returned and cheered us off into the run.

This was the toughy, 2 hours on the clock and into an 8 mile run.  Again this was hilly as expected.  Getting the pace right here was crucial we were 2nd on the bike stage, but lacking on the kayak as novices there, we needed to lay a good time down (it’s not a race it’s a challenge was the motto of the day – true, but it’s nice to do well, we had come a long way!).

As we went the pace was strong and we lost a little time navigating the route, even having to climb a vertical cliff to get back on course.  As we gritted our teeth into the last 2 miles we offered encouragement to some competitors climbing the first hill beginning the run.  Good luck with that one.

We finished well, 3rd fastest on the day (definitely lost a few minutes up that cliff!).  A good reason to head back again in May! It was a great atmosphere, a tough course and a worthy effort.  Once again thank you to all have sponsored or supported us, we have raised over £1000 for Wessex Heartbeat.

8 Week fatburner – Who’s with us?

The Back Story

On a recent stag weekend, the man himself a good friend of mine, requested some help to get in shape for the big day – 8 weeks, maximum results.  We set this plan up to be as simple as possible and later insisted that I would follow it for support, checking in a couple of times a week. Increasing the number of participants has now become an obvious way to improve success and get everyone involved – are you with us?!



Years of experience has shown the majority of people wish to lose weight, or to be more specific, lose Body Fat.  This is essentially the stuff that sits under your skin causing lack of tone, poor shape, health issues and weight gain.  In some cases the main goal may be weight loss, in others a desire to improve physique by conditioning muscle and reducing body fat at the same time.   Either way, this works.

This approach switches the body to burning fat by slowing the release of insulin, a fat storing hormone.  We remove toxins, empty calories, sugars and major foods known to slow results. Following this, people typically experience much more energy, feeling healthier and improved sleep patterns (AND less Body Fat!)

We aim to simplify things, including easy foods to prepare and stick to in order to get solid results.

We will use these meals as gospel for now as most people repeat meals weekly anyway.  There is flexibility, you essentially just need to be eating lean proteins, fruit and veg and we can get onto more variety later.

On with the plan
