From Men's Health

This January, consider your diaries full: we've assembled the best trainers and athletes in the game, as well as inspirational figures from the worlds of sport, psychology and nutrition, for our free, month-long festival of fitness, Men's Health Weekenders. And you're all invited.

Beginning on Saturday, January 9, 2021, we'll be hosting game-changing workouts, cookalongs, mindfulness sessions and we'll discussing training, mental health and life with illustrious guests, such as the ‘Fittest Man in History’ Mat Fraser, military veterans Aldo Kane and Jason Fox, professional boxer Conor Benn, as well as reality TV star Spencer Matthews, who, alongside his trainer Sean Stafford, will be explaining how he got down to 5% body fat.

All of these events will be available every Saturday and Sunday in January on our YouTube channel, with classes running at 10am, 2pm and 7pm. If you're not available at those times or if you miss anything, don't worry, everything will be made available to watch again once the live event has finished.

You can see the full lineup below, and can sign up for any and all of our four weekends of fitness, food and feel-good challenges HERE. Once you're signed up, we'll send you session reminders, so you don't miss out on events as they happen, and you'll also receive a free copy of our Men's Health Weekenders e-zine, which is filled to the brim with insider information, expert advice, recipes and shopping discounts.

We hope you're as excited as we are. We can't wait to show you what we've put together, but until it all kicks of on January 9th, all that's left to say is: welcome to Men's Health Weekenders.
