Have You Inspired Anyone Recently?

Swimming 2.4 miles (3.8km), followed by a 112 mile (180 km) bike ride then nicely topping it off with a 26.2 mile (42 km) is just plain crazy - phenomenal, but crazy. To endure not a leg of the Tour De France, but the whole thing, the worlds most famous cycling race, is again phenomenal (and slightly unhinged).

Doing all of this, while being diagnosed and being treated for cancer is something else. Beating cancer twice, then dedicating your life to helping others with cancer is something special. This is Mike Grisenthwaite, this is what he does.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mike while he was down in London, collecting funds for the Charity he champions, Cyclists Fighting Cancer. Mike has a vision of establishing a centre of excellence in the UK for Exercise and Cancer Recovery, and getting the word out to the public and health professionals the importance of exercise in combating and managing cancer.

CJS Fitness holds a keen interest in Exercise and Cancer Recovery, and plans to create London wide schemes on late 2009. We're giving full support to the workshops the National Association of Cancer Exercise Rehabilitation (NACER) are putting on in April 2009.

Check out the article the Daily Express ran on Mike or Reuters online. Mike is a humbling and inspiring man, and my guess is, that he doesn't even realise it.

Meet Mike Grisenthwaite.
