“A MUM-OF-SIX has been awarded a Vale council community chest grant of £499 to help in her mission to increase fitness for all generations.

Chelle Grant, of Barry, holds Buggbybeat indoor fitness classes in Cadoxton Methodist Church, after re-locating from Victoria Park, for the autumn and winter seasons.

And the 48-year-old mum, a qualified level 3 personal trainer, Buggybeat instructor, gym instructor, and one-to-one trainer, also caters for the over 50 age group and works with Newydd Housing Association’s sheltered home tenants by giving them fitness sessions.

Ms Grant said: “I was delighted that I was successful in the recent round of the community chest awards.

“This money means I can increase participation levels for my classes and has enabled me to purchase advertising materials and equipment for my classes.

“I run forever fitness which is a gentle exercise class for the over 50s

“The aim is to increase mobility and independence, using light resistance bands to improve strength, co-ordination and balance.

“The class will be 30 minutes with seated or standing exercises depending on ability with refreshments after so the class has a social element.

“I have completed my dementia friendly training course so my classes are dementia friendly too.

“It is £3 per session.”
