 Bhangra Workout Class on UK Fitness TV

In what is a fillip to desi arts, a new British TV station, dedicated entirely to fitness, is offering a string of classes, including those on Bhangra.

The Fitness TV, a 24-hour station, also hosts a high heel workout class for the women who refuse to get out of their beloved stilettos. Other workouts include those based on Salsa, Hip Hop and Disco.


"Just like a personal trainer, the channel allows viewers to tailor workouts to their own levels of fitness and interests and can be easily scheduled around busy lives," the Sun quoted a spokesman for the TV shows as saying.

"Programmes range from children's classes including a mobility and balance workout for pre-schoolers, kids' yoga and street dance for teenagers, while pensioners and the less mobile are offered Chairobics.

"For the more adventurous, there are boot camp-style workouts and dance-based exercise sessions for Strictly Come Dancing fans, including Bhangra, Cheerleader and 70s Disco.

"There's even a High Heels workout for more glamorous viewers," the spokesman added.

Fitness TV founder Luan Underwood, a former personal trainer and mum-of-two, said: "We are positioning the channel as an additional workout option, not as a replacement to gyms, fitness and wellbeing classes.

"We would like to capture the imagination of the 80 per cent of UK citizens that have never visited a gym and inspire them to do so.

"We also aim to reach people unable to visit fitness facilities, perhaps because they have young children, or time pressures that make it difficult to get to the gym for a few weeks.

"With Fitness TV, people can squeeze in a session at a time to suit them, and because the classes are constantly being updated, they'll be more motivated to stick to them than they would an exercise DVD," Underwood added.
