Daley Thomson CBE, Double Olympic Decathlon Champion said today

“Everybody should be able to give a little back if they want to.  Having joined up as an NHS Volunteer, I wanted to do something else.   I know how valuable the physical and mental health of people is.  If people are to be stuck at home often dealing with stress, challenging circumstances, then the least I can do is to try to help with the thing I enjoy most – exercising and working out.

“Somebody like me has a responsibility to encourage people of all shapes and sizes and ages to get in shape.

It’s always been a passion of mine to see somebody who could only do one press up yesterday manage two today. I hope that the coming weeks of streaming our classes online will help people do more at this critical time.

Kevin Craig, CEO & Founder of PLMR , the communications firm that has provided all technical and digital production support free of charge to this initiative said today:

“PLMR is a company that has donated 5% of profits to charity since day one of our existence in 2006. As the COVID-19 crisis has developed the question was, what else could PLMR do to help out in addition to the things we might all doing in our own lives.

“Daley came to me asking how we could Get Government to support his desire to bring exercise and fitness to as many people as possible during this challenging period.

“I have experienced training with Daley and seen close up how good and accessible he is as a coach.   His passion and expertise will be a boost to so many over the coming weeks and months.”
