Residents and visitors of Birmingham and the West Midlands will be able to exercise alongside Mr. Motivator on Saturday 30 July 2022, with the chance of winning tickets to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
The free public workout will start at 3pm in Victoria Square, Birmingham City Centre shortly after the marathon athletes cross over the finish line. Mr. Motivator is inviting people to “bring themselves and their families and get ready to power up” in partnership with the Games’ Official Modular Energy Solutions Supporter, Aggreko.
He says: “It’s a crazy world we’re living in right now, so finding our internal energy can be tough sometimes. I want to invite the people of Birmingham down to re-boot and simply enjoy the energy of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.” Those attending could win one of 12 tickets up for grabs to watch the Games – six for the Basketball 3x3 later that evening and six for the Beach Volleyball on the following day, both located at the Smithfield venue in the city centre.
Mr. Motivator will be on the lookout for those with the most positive energy, as well as the best dressed in bright colours. “It’s a great chance to win some tickets and have some fun, so make sure you don your brightest coloured outfits and join us,” he said. “This movement to music class is safe and effective for anyone, no matter what your age, but most of all it will be a great time.”
Aggreko is known for helping power some of the world’s most famous events, including the Olympics, the World Cup and Glastonbury. This year they’re supporting Birmingham 2022 in its pledge to leave a carbon neutral legacy.
Chris Rason, Managing Director at Aggreko, said: “We help provide the power for the Games, but what are the Games without people? We’re excited to ‘power the people’ with the help of Mr. Motivator and help the crowds enjoy the spectacle that is the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.”
Senior Producer for Birmingham 2022 Festival & Festival Sites, Tim Hodgson, commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Mr Motivator to the Birmingham 2022 Festival Site at Victoria Square in the heart of the city and at the heart of the Games. The Birmingham 2022 Festival Sites will feature an array of experiences including opportunities to watch the Games, eat, drink, dance and celebrate across Birmingham and beyond.”
