One of our key lettings clients ‘Defy Gravity’ offer fitness and exercise classes every evening and on Saturday mornings, on a pay-by-class or membership basis. To celebrate the New Year and spur on all those keep fit resolutions, Defy Gravity arranged for “Chico Time” on Thursday 28th January.

Defy Gravity took a record number of bookings for this ticket only event, and on the evening more than 50 keep fit enthusiasts worked up a sweat alongside Chico himself with his new ‘Block Fit’ workout.

‘Block Fit’ is developed and marketed by Chico and his team, and incorporates strong dance music, combat inspired moves, toning, conditioning and stretches for wellbeing and is already one of the main fitness trends for 2016.

Yousseph ‘Chico’ Slimani is a British singer who rose to fame reaching the quarter finals of the 2005 X-Factor series. Since then he has had a No.1 with his hit ‘It’s Chico Time’ before turning to acting and achieving a BAFTA nomination for ‘Winner Takes All’. He also reached the finals of ‘Dancing on Ice’ in 2012 and has toured Britain with the hit shows ‘Boogie Nights’ and ‘Celebrities on Ice’.

Chico qualified as a YMCA ETM (Exercise To Music) instructor in 2014 and is now promoting ‘Block Fit’ touring the country demonstrating and launching to fitness groups.
