Bracknell, UK, Monday 10th August -

A recent study shows that 1 in every 3 children and nearly 2 in every 3 adults in the United Kingdom are suffering from heavyweight issues or obesity.

To catalyze the government’s initiative of ‘beating coronavirus’ by staying fit and healthy, The Fit Box has launched an online hub called ‘Club Corona’.

The club was launched after the government’s announcement of the new obesity strategy, which includes a ban on online adverts, TV, and the ‘buy one get one free’ offers on high sugar, salty, and fatty foods, along with calorie labelling on the restaurant menus.

The Fit Box began supporting members during lockdown with a free live exercise campaign. Since then, the fitness organisation has been consistently putting in efforts to provide support for the mental and physical health and well-being of members.

With 10 years experience educating the fitness industry and coaching members from its studio gym in Bracknell, UK, the team is now focussed on making the world a better place by making their expertise easily accessible through the digital tools available.

Paul Russell, the founder of The Fit Box says, ‘We feel compelled to do our bit in the fight against obesity and we are now ready to move into the next phase of Club Corona, in line with the UK government's Better Health Campaign.’

Paul Russell has pledged to continuously work for this cause by providing his time to the members of the club for the next 12 weeks for those who are serious about losing weight and getting fit, receive the proper guidance and education to make permanent lifestyle changes.

To fully empathise with those taking part in ‘Club Corona’ and appreciate the feeling and challenges they may face, Paul has spent the last 5 weeks consuming extremely high fat and sugar foods products in order to achieve physical obesity himself.

Paul continues, ‘There are no sales, no special shakes or potions, and no strings attached - we simply want to help people make better choices in order to live longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives’.

To ensure that members of the club benefit from the 12 week schedule, The Fit Box will provide guidance through a series of live videos every week.

Members are encouraged to take part in the body measurement reviews which are scheduled to take place on August 27, September 24, and October 22.

Interested individuals who are looking to improve their lifestyle and health can get in touch with The Fit Box at or visit Facebook page - ‘teamfitbox’ to watch live videos and learn more.
