"I want to remind people that whilst fitness is hard work, it can be fun, especially if we combine it with socialising and fundraising."
Marc recently spoke on Sino Radio London about remaining active in the capital, and one of the subjects that came up was the sedentary lifestyle of children.
"Research from this year shows that children are becoming less active at a younger age and this is really worrying, because humans are made to move."
This research shows a shift in lifestyle over the past decade, because children learn from imitation and adults are spending much time sitting in cars, at desks and on the sofas...
So... in a bid to get as many people moving as possible Marc has created the #40secondSquatChallenge – the aim is to do as many squats as you can do in just 40 seconds – EASY! But... you need to wear your jeans... film it and share it with @JeansforGenes
Here is a video of @MarcDressenPT (https://twitter.com/
Marc and Romesh will choose a challenge winner and the prize is a free workout at the winner's work place run by Marc so all the staff...
The Jeans for Genes' motto is Wear Jeans Change Lives and Marc believes in changing lives for the better through educating others about health, nutrition and fitness.
"Every person can exercise in some way, and I want to get as many people #JeansFit as possible ready for September 22nd 2017"
