So training is well and truly underway and as Claire puts it I am a bit of a ‘Gym Bunny’ or rather I don’t mind going to the gym and find it quite therapeutic and funny.

My gym of choice at the moment is the famous Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool. The Adelphi was made famous in 1997 when it was the subject of a BBC docu-soap called Hotel. The 8 part series documented the various goings on in the hotel which included an indoor barbecue which smoked out the banqueting hall to verbal abuse between the Chef and Deputy Manager Brian which produced the famous catch phrase; “ Just Cook Will Yer”  I still think of this phrase now everytime I go even though I was only young when the show was aired. Apparently this show got 11 million viewers and caused an increase in bookings at the hotel. I also recently found out that the Sefton Suite is an exact replica of the smoking room aboard the Titanic. So as you can see there is a lot to think about when you go to the gym!!
