Mr Motivator (yes, THE Mr Motivator) chats to us about everything from exercise to positivity, future-proofing your health, leading an exercise class before a funeral, the importance of wearing Day-Glo lycra and how he likes to tell his wife he loves her.
The Jamaican-born British fitness instructor burst onto our screens in the '90s and quickly became a household name following appearances on the UK breakfast television show GMTV. His legendary infectious positivity, fun live fitness sessions and advice for viewers saw him return to our screens during the pandemic when we needed him most! And now he dedicates his time to helping people improve their health, especially the older generation.
We caught up with Mr Motivator at The Big Retreat Festival, where he'd been leading a class on stage and had just given an honest and inspiring talk in the Talk Tent. He sets us all a simple challenge which promises to have lasting positive effects for all ages.
