Virgin Media O2 is helping its TV customers take a breather and relax as part of Stress Awareness Month, offering access to a range of calming video classes at no extra cost between 8am – 11am every Saturday morning throughout April.
Existing Virgin TV customers can tune in to a variety of wellbeing content including stretching, Pilates, bodyweights, yoga and meditation so there’s something for everyone.
The sessions come as a YouGov study found three in 10 Brits (31%) say they feel very or fairly stressed even on weekends and when they’re not thinking about work. According to experts, a way to reduce stress is to exercise, but despite this still nearly one in four (23%) Brits don’t exercise up to 30 minutes per week.
To access the classes, Virgin TV customers can simply head to Channel 100 from 8am until 11am every Saturday morning in April. The classes will also be available to watch in the ‘Stress Buster’ and ‘Stress Reliever’ collections available via On Demand.
The wide range of classes available require minimal to no equipment, making them accessible for all fitness levels, and are led by experts at Nuffield Health, Fiit and Fit at Home. The workouts are available to all Virgin TV customers across TiVo, V6, TV 360 and Stream at no extra cost.
Customers can access these collections when it suits them on Virgin TV 360 and Stream by going to Discover, Box Sets or Get Moving, or on TiVo through the Get Moving folder via On Demand and in Catch Up.
David Bouchier, Chief TV and Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media O2, said: “With the cost-of-living crisis and other everyday stresses impacting people’s lives, it’s never been more important to take a breather. That’s why we’re giving our customers access to a variety of mindful content at no extra cost, so they take time out to de-stress.”
