Personal trainer from Rochester Road, Gravesend helping brides-to-be 'altar' their body ahead of the big day

Personal trainer Louise Cartwright-Orr hopes to engage with 20 women to set up Buff Bride Bootcamp, which will also help raise money for charity.

The 38-year-old, of Rochester Road, Gravesend, will put them through their paces during four, one-hour weekly outdoor fitness sessions while providing nutritional advice, a 30-day health and fitness plan and before and after measuring.

The bridal package is also on offer to mothers-of-the-bride who want to look equally good.

Mother-of-two Louise said: “I’m looking for 20 women of any age, size and shape. When you’re a bride-to-be looking for a wedding dress, there is nothing worse than someone having to hold the dress you are trying on because you cannot get into it.

“I am currently deciding on a location for this bootcamp, somewhere like Camer Park or Jeskyns and we will be using tyres and ropes.

“But I will cater the sessions to all fitness abilities and based solely on what a person can do.”

Louise, who runs her own personal training and life coaching business Revoloution Fitness Solutions from a converted studio at her home, is also hoping to tie in the bootcamp with raising money for Dandelion Time.

The Maidstone-based charity helps families who have suffered from trauma, abuse or neglect.

Each bootcamp package costs £70 and Louise, who used to run exercise classes at Gravesend’s Cyclopark, will donate all profits.

She said: “I’ve been a fat kid myself and having suffered with eating disorders and post-natal depression, my drive is to help women feel good about themselves.”
