extreme fi tness camps for males and military fi tness days. The company is currently expanding its corporate fi tness days service after a successful launch last year. People are grouped according to their


ability and the day includes a variety of sessions including log runs, boxing, skipping, team games, scramble net obstacle courses, circuit training and core training. Sunny Moran, co-founder of the company,

says its USP is that the sessions are led by serving members of the British Services whose leadership, communication and team-building skills are among the best in the world. There’s also something oddly thrilling to be treated like an army recruit for the day, she says: “Everyone is a number. You have to call the instructors ‘staff’ [rather than by their name]. You have to be on time or else your team gets corrective training. It’s a very different experience from the gym and people love it, especially the men.”

The programme was such a success that it was integrated into the client’s wellbeing package and today LGN Wellbeing counts BP, M&C Saatchi, ABN AMRO and CitiBank among its list of clients. The running clubs typically take place twice a week, either

during the lunch hour or after work. The routes start and fi nish at each client’s offi ce and Pochee estimates that 95 per cent of members are not traditional runners. “They’re not interested in running a marathon – they just want to lose weight and get fi t.
