Our next Fitlife Christmas Challenge is inspired by a London race like no other … Vertical Rush.

42 floors racing to the top of Tower 42 ..

You have probably guessed it by now- our next challenge requires you to climb 42 floors on the dreaded stairmaster!!

Tips and rules:

Hit quick start – control your speed by the arrows on the right hand side of the screen and count your floors on the left hand side of the screen

Participants are not to hold onto the sides of the stairmaster – only by the bars directly in front of them

Write your score on the blackboard at the back of the gym

Entries close December 11th 1.30pm

Remember it is the taking part that counts!
