Hundreds of shoppers turned up at intu Uxbridge to take part in a free one-hour fitness session with social media influencer and personal trainer to the stars, Bradley Simmonds .... and a whole host more showed up just to get a glimpse of the fitness icon in person!
Pulses raced on Saturday 2 February, when super-buff Bradley ran a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) class on the Lower Mall outside Next, helping the people of Uxbridge to work up a sweat.
Formerly a Chelsea FC and Queens Park Rangers player, Bradley is renowned for his expertise in strength and conditioning training and nutrition, having learnt from the best. Now a social media sensation, Bradley’s session at intu Uxbridge involved a carefully chosen mix of squats, lunges, running on the spot and the dreaded burpees, among other exercises.
Great for all abilities, HIIT is all about the effort you put in, and mixes high-intensity exercises with short recovery periods. This intense form of stop-start cardiovascular exercise can be done anywhere – at home, in the gym … or in a shopping centre of course!
Natasha House, marketing manager for intu Uxbridge, said: “It was a great turnout on Saturday with hundreds of people coming together for a fun fitness session that demonstrated that you don’t have to have an expensive gym membership to get active! After the event, many shoppers were inspired to head to Decathlon to grab fitness clothing or equipment so they can work out at home – and that was brilliant to see, so good on you!”
Ten lucky shoppers even got the chance to meet and chat to Bradley, who regularly trains the likes of John Terry, Theo Walcott, Louise Redknapp and other household names.
The PT, who motivates millions each day to live a healthy lifestyle, has written his own book called ‘Get it Done’ that has recently made it into the Sunday Times Top 10 for Food and Drink.
