We had a very exciting adventure before Christmas and have now been featured on Channel 4…..
Our Head Coach Chris has actually appeared on the TV before on a series with animals… go on ask him!! So Chris was approached by a member of the production team at Channel 4 , they were looking for FITNESS groups to take part in an experiment. Chris invited them down to visit the club and they loved what we were doing, the member of the production team said, ‘this is no ordinary fitness class’……
So next we needed some volunteers to take part in the experiment, of course who would be better then our very own members. A quick chat and selection of our members and a brief meeting with the production team we were ready to go!
The group of members was split into two groups, one group adding the spice Cumin to their diet and the other not. The members were to follow the plan for two weeks alongside their usual activities and would be reassessed on completion. Measurements were taken with Tanita scales and tape measure and all recorded. Members were encouraged to blog their experiences and our members put together some amusing cumin based funny videos (sorry team). The members all involved, supported each other daily, sharing their ideas, their woe at having to eat more cumin… it was fantastic group to monitor!
The next time Channel 4 visited, measurements were taken and recorded and this time they bought a team of cameras with them!! Our members were fantastic again at supporting each other and we are so proud of them all for taking on the challenge. So measurements and results recorded it was time for the coaches to take control and give Channel 4 a workout! Lots of filming was taken of the various sessions and the camera crew joined in with Coach Laura’s Boxercise…… well they tried too! Once the workout was complete the members were filmed and given their results with surprising results for the cumin users! We will let you watch the programme to find out just what happened….
