Sharron Davies launched online fitness platform

Former Olympian and TV presenter Sharron Davies has launched a new online health and fitness programme.

Designed for all ages and abilities, the workouts provided by the new Sharron Davies Training platform require no equipment.

Access to the platform is priced at £9.99 per month – or £95 a year.

Subscribers are offered the opportunity to buy sessions and donate to charity, as part of a "buy one, gift one" initiative.

The free subscriptions will be donated to various charities – including Shelter, Women's Aid and Refuge.

According to Davies, the platform has been launched to help people – especially those who are currently inactive – to get physically active as we come out of the pandemic.

"It's been an incredibly difficult last two years," said Davies, who is a qualified personal trainer.

"People have stopped going to the gym, had to work from home and at one point it seemed our only enjoyment was cooking a more exciting meal.

"Sadly statistics show us that we have put on weight and the grind of negative news and tough times have caused apathy and certainly increased mental health issues.

"The one thing COVID-19 has taught us is that a healthy body has a better chance against infection and we all can make a difference but we have to start somewhere.

"I decided I wanted to find a way I could help as many people as possible to benefit from exercise in the simplest way.

"It had to be easy to follow, for absolutely everyone even if you've not been off the sofa in ages, needing no equipment and the least amount of time possible, because either we're time poor or we just don't enjoy exercise but know we ought to do some.

"It takes about three months to make or break a habit so that's the starting point."

The new Sharron Davies website was coded by Impress Web with videography by Be Well Media.
