Bolton’s own and Happy Monday’s star Bez is launching his own lockdown fitness classes on YouTube. Since burning calories dancing on stage hasn’t been an option during the pandemic, Bez, whose real name is Mark Berry has decided to give Joe Wicks a run for his money.
Rising to fame as a dancer, Bez won Celebrity Big Brother in 2005 and even made a bid to become an MP.
During an idle lockdown period, Bez is looking to get back on his feet and help the public do the same!
“Since we went into the first lockdown, I’ve mainly sat on the sofa… I got unfit, fat, last and into some seriously bad eating habits. This year, this lockdown, I need to sort it out sharpish,” said Bez.
Bez is encouraging people to get on YouTube and join him on his mad journey or sit and watch for a good laugh.
Staying Fit During Lockdown
Love Energy Savings are proud sponsors of ‘Get Buzzin’ with Bez’. Its Love Energy Savings’ CEO Phil Foster has been dubbed the Joe Wicks of Bolton for his efforts to keep his workforce sharp, fit and focused through lockdown - by leading daily video workouts over Instagram.
Phil said: “As a Bolton-based company, supporting Bez through sponsorship is a perfect match for us. It provides us with a greater opportunity to help more people stay fit and healthy during lockdown. We’re really proud to be supporting Bez on his fitness journey.
“Backing Bez as he attempts to get in shape mirrors our commitment to helping Britain’s small businesses. As the nation’s 24-hour Power People, we never rest in our mission to drive down energy bills.”
Phil started streaming his daily workouts for the Love Energy Savings team at the beginning of the first lockdown in 2020. The short and sweet half-hour sessions have picked up a substantial amount of popularity.
As Phil started his fitness journey in pursuit of energising his workforce, he jumped at the chance to work with local legend Bez.
What is ‘Buzzin’ with Bez’ all about?
Bez will be trained by a fitness instructor rather than acting as the instructor himself. So, you can get fit alongside Bez, with a few laughs along the way.
He said, “at the very least, I know I will be making people smile, at best I’ll be helping people get fit and mentally happier alongside me.”
