A best-selling fitness trainer is holding a fundraising work-out class to raise money for teenagers with cancer.

Maxine Jones, from Bethnal Green, is the founder of livestream fitness channel Maxicise TV, where she teaches people across the world, including Jamaica, Australia and the Philippines.

Alongside running her channel, the fitness instructor also runs weekly classes at Loughton Methodist Church on Loughton High Street, including sessions in Westminster and Bow.

The 49-year-old is aiming to have over 200 people attend her hour-long dance aerobics class to raise money for Teens:) Unite.

“I have been lucky in my life to not have anyone pass away from cancer but when my friend got diagnosed with breast cancer and it was a real shock to the system,” she said. “Teenagers with cancer doesn’t make sense I thought to myself I really want to this and give something back.

“Cancer can strike anyone and teenagers with cancer really resonated with me and made me want to do something and help out.”

Teens:) Unite is a national charity which runs motivational workshops and activity stays to enable youngsters to rebuild their self-esteem and lives.

Ms Jones’ charity event is open to all ages and abilities at Bancroft Rugby Club, Buckhurst Hill where £10 per person will go towards running the charity.

“I have been teaching exercise since 2011 and I have taken part in other charity events but never hosted one myself, I am really excited for it,” she said. “Fitness knows no bounds there is no one on this planet that can’t keep themselves fit, it’s not just the physical but the mental fitness. Your mental health is the most important thing.”

Ms Jones is also well known for teaming up with TV presenter Lorraine Kelly and releasing two fitness DVD’s in 2015 and 2016, selling over 70,000 copies.

After filming both exercise shows, the ITV presenter encouraged Ms Jones to pursue her idea of running livestream fitness classes, which launched over a year ago.

“I want to change peoples concepts of what fitness is by combining the motion of clubbing with exercise.”

“I used to work in investment banking for over 10 hours a day for 23 years, so I know going to the gym can be a chore for people and I want to change all of that.

“I love bringing people together with music We all have playlist of our lives.”

Maxicise TV broadcasts live at 7.30pm every Wednesday, with four additional livestream episodes available online to choose from whenever it suits.

The Teens:)Unite charity aerobics dance class will take place on Sunday, July 7, at Bancrofts Rugby Club, Buckhurst Hill at 11am.
