"M" is for the Man who Motivates

"Mr Motivator" has us know he's a supporter of Manchester United, but quickly dismisses it as needless because he doesn't want to take sides. Besides, "the club has many fans already", he says. He puts paid to the fact that most of these fans have never even watched their favourite club play a live match. Instead of advocating 'fan-ship', he's more concerned that fitness is nothing short of fun!

His real name's Derrick Evans. This 56-year-old grandfather of three has been championing fitness for about thirty years. He got himself on British TV channel GMTV in 1993 and since then, has been rallying his countrymen to take the path of fitness. This TV personality and fitness instructor believes people will be drawn to fitness if there's a fun element to it. In fact, such is his pull that even British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has tasked Derrick to help millions in the UK shed the pounds and fight obesity belly-on!

There are many triggers that have people turning to fitness, and fun is his bait. Ladies, there's a free workout happening at Zirca this Thursday, 29th April 2010. Click here to read more or sign up for his event led by Mr Motivator himself!

Mr Motivator even had us do some simple stretching and breathing exercises in The Living Room to get our muscles moving. And we thought moving our lips with all that talking we're paid to do was enough of a workout. I guess not. *sigh*
