40 kaumatua are expected to take part in a fitness challenge known as the "Max 60 Sec Challenge".

It's being hosted by Kaitokonga Hauora and being held at Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga in Hastings.

In just 60 seconds competitors are expected to complete as many repetitions as possible of single-skips, push-ups, burpees, max-row and max-cycle.

The row and cycle will be calculated towards calorie output.

Our reporter Aroha Treacher says it's a promotion of health and fitness for all ages and the event begins 9am this morning.
