Nottingham City Council and Notts TV are joining forces to create a brand new fitness programme to be aired on Notts TV from 6 February 2017.

“Get Nottingham Active” will aim to get the citizens of Nottingham active in 2017. From 6th February – 7th May, short fitness videos will be shown on Notts TV at 11am and 2pm Monday to Friday that will provide hints, tips and inspirational ways to get fit and active in your own home.

Three local fitness champions will show how to stretch, tone and generally get moving in fun and engaging ways. All exercises are aimed at people who have never thought about getting active or perhaps face various barriers to accessing any form of physical activity.

“Get Nottingham Active” has been formed as part of the Fit in the Community project and supports a wider Nottingham City Council Sport and Leisure Strategy. Councillor David Trimble, the Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said: “We are really excited about ‘Get Nottingham Active’ and it is a new venture for both NCC and Notts TV, we’ve never done anything like this before. We work hard to be able to bring sport and physical to everyone in Nottingham and we believe the programme will do just that.”

Notts TV “are so pleased to collaborate with Nottingham City Council to create unique content that aims to encourage viewers to take that small step towards getting and keeping active.”

Viewers will be able to follow three local fitness champions, Charmaine Daley, Sebastian Sutherland and Vanessa Gretton, between Monday – Friday, at 11am and 2pm. Notts TV can be found on Freeview channel 7, Virgin 159, Sky 117 and on demand
