WITH Stourbridge on its way to recovering from Olympic fever, one of the UK’s leading outdoor fitness classes is inviting residents to try something new.

On Saturday (August 27), British Military Fitness is carrying out a free outdoor fitness class in Wollescote’s Stevens Park from 9.30am as part of the nation’s biggest sports day.

People of all fitness levels can try the classes as part of ‘I am Team GB’, an event organised by ITV and The National Lottery as part of a national homecoming for Great Britain’s Olympic athletes.

Harry Sowerby, managing director at British Military Fitness, said: “It’s been fantastic seeing Team GB bringing the medals home this year from Rio, and even better to see the Olympics inspiring people to give sport and fitness a go.

“We believe it’s vital to keep this momentum going after the Olympics have come to an end, so are joining fitness providers across the country in offering a free session as part of I am Team GB.

“We hope this will help to encourage people of all fitness levels to try something new and to reap the benefits of getting outside and active on both physical and mental wellbeing.”

To encourage people to get active, ITV will also be switching off their transmission across all channels for an hour at 9.30am on Saturday to get the nation to get moving.
