School children get a visit from Mr Motivator after posting video inspired by his moves

Fitness guru Mr Motivator has held a keep fit session at a Coventry school after he saw a video created by their pupils, featuring his signature moves.

Derrick Evans, aka Mr. Motivator, rose to fame in the early 1990s through regular appearances on the ITV breakfast television show GMTV.

Derrick’s visit came after the school, which is part of the Romero Catholic Academy, created a video to promote ‘keeping healthy’.

It was inspired by Mr Motivator's keep fit videos and seven-year-old Max Mahony took on the lead role calling himself ‘Max the Motivator’.
