Ron Shillingford is bringing his popular “Maxathon” to Willesden Sports Centre, in Donnington Road, this Saturday from 1pm to 2pm.

The Maxathon class involves circuit training including football, basketball, weights, tennis, shuttle sprints and ball throw.

The free basketball session at the end comes with cash prizes of £20, £30 and £50.

Ron, who lives in Dollis Hill, started the workout in the Cayman Islands, where it proved very popular, particularly with women.

He said: “Maxathon was so popular in the Cayman Islands that people wanted to incorporate it in their permanent fitness schedule.

“One woman, Delia, had never kicked a football in her life yet enjoyed it so much that she wanted me to return just to build up Maxathon around the Caribbean.”

No booking is necessary for the session.
