Throughout May 2019 pH.7 ran an inaugural fitness challenge, the “pH.7 Heart Burner” for its clients to burn at least 153,000 calories using the cardiovascular machines in the gym. Across the month they burned a total of 163,386 calories and raised £6k to purchase two defibrillators for Highgate and one for the gym.
