I’m the co-host of a new fitness magazine TV programme starting this weekend. Called ‘Fit Happens’, the show is on this Sunday and for the following few weeks.
Its a fitness magazine programme, covering fitness in a number of different ways – in the gym, in the kitchen, in exercise classes and out in the fresh air. We’ve targeted this programme at the overall community – its not a commercial enterprise in any way. If the programmes help just a handful of people find ways in which they can reduce their fatness levels, and increase their fitness levels, then it will have done its job.
Much as I would have liked ‘Top Gear’ style production values, it was made on a zero budget – so no glamour trips for us (the local park is the furthest we went!). But the message, I hope, is large.
My co-host is top sports nutritionist Keith Cormican, and he joins me for each of the four episodes. In this first episode, Keith takes us through cooking a healthy meat meal, while I look at gym exercises for the Pull group – Back and Biceps. Together we are in the park for the 5k ParkRun, and we have a go at answering viewers questions. Future episodes include features on aerobics, cycling, yoga, gym training other parts, more tasty and healthy kitchen treats, and answering more questions from viewers.
The first showing is at 8:30PM this Sunday on the Community Channel – which is FreeView 63, Sky 539, Virgin Media 233. And then at the same time each week for four weeks.
I very much hope you get the change to watch some or all of the episodes – and maybe get some further inspiration towards the benefits of a multi-activity, fitness-focused life!
