Achieving the Fitness Levels of a Movie Star

 

Lara Croft is one of those larger than life video game characters. She’s been the epitome of girl power ever since she became the titular protagonist of a cult classic, Tomb Raider, in 1996. Fans and non-fans alike, know her as an intelligent, independent English archaeologist who, at the drop of a hat, transforms into a strong and agile adventurer.

Fitness Meets Charity

fitness charity run (1)Over the years I have signed up to numerous gyms, both alone and with friends.
