Fitness parents take to the stage

Mel and Danny Burt at the 2017 New Zealand Fitness Model Search.

Cambridge parents Danny and Mel Burt took part in the ‘Mums and Dads’ segment of the 2017 New Zealand Fitness Model Search on the weekend.

“We had a fantastic weekend surrounded by like-minded people,” said Mel.

Though they didn’t make it into the top three, Danny was awarded with a medal as a stand out from the group, one of the judges felt that although he didn’t place, he wanted to reward his work and commitment to encourage him further.

The local couple have now planned a free family fun fitness session at the Wordsworth Street park. The first one will be held on Saturday, November 11. A start time will be put up on their Facebook page closer to the time, www.facebook.com/ontheroadtowellbeing/.
