Sometimes it can be hard to get up in the morning – you’ve got to go to work, you’re still tired and everything feels like effort. That’s what we’re here for, to make that daily drudgery a lot more fun.
So, we were incredibly excited to get a super-charged boost from a motivation king.
Motivation isn’t even his middle name, it’s his ACTUAL name. Yep, that’s right, the one, the only Mr Motivator joined us on The BreakfastShow to make those early hours a little more fun.
Now, we knew it was going to fun and exciting but nothing could prepare us for the ball of energy and positivity that was waiting.
Who Is Mr Motivator?
The man is a myth and a legend. He first rose to fame in the early 1990s through appearances on the UK breakfast television show GMTV. He would perform live fitness sessions and offered tips and advice to viewers.
He was also well known for his love of highly coloured lycra and his trademark bum bag.
Not only that he even had a music career. Don’t believe us? Check out his music video:
His self-published autobiography, The Warm Up: The Story Behind The Lycra, tells the story of his life before becoming a national phenomena.
He left GMTV in 2003 because he wanted to move back to Jamaica with his family, but he still performs as Mr Motivator at festivals, as well as running an adventure tourism business in Jamaica, H’Evans Scent, and fronting campaigns such as the public health campaign Change4life. In his memoir, he writes, “There is a power when you stand in front of an audience and you realise that they will move however you want them to.” What a man
So, Gerry & Dave were particularly excited to get him on the show…and he didn’t let them down
