Local Carshalton and Wallington MP, Tom Brake, has partnered up with fitness magazine Men’s Health to put together a seven week fitness regime as part of a wider Parliamentary Fitness Challenge. It is hoped that the initiative will not only encourage MP’s to improve their health, but inspire everyone to maintain a healthier lifestyle.
The Parliamentary Fitness Challenge has seen Tom Brake join with fellow Conservative and Labour Party MPs to create a quick and intensive workout that can work for those who often feel their lifestyles are too busy to exercise regularly. Mr Brake, an enthusiastic runner and cyclist, is keen to encourage more MPs to eat healthily and show that even the smallest improvements in an individual's diet and exercise can have a important effect on their health and wellbeing.
Tom Brake commented: “Often, those who spend the majority of their time at work or looking after their families find that they have little time left over to take care of their own wellbeing. People need to make sure that their hectic lifestyles are not having a detrimental effect on their health!”
“This new fitness program I am working on with Men’s Health and other Members of Parliament will help those who believe they don’t have time to look after their bodies to realise that they can, in very little time, make drastic improvements to their health and lifestyles.”
The magazine including Tom’s fitness regime will go on sale in the first week of April.
