FATHER OATES AND HIS CONFESSIONAL BOOTH
andrea britton, Guilty Pleasures
Oh look itâ€™s 2012. So young, so new, so full of hope are you. We donâ€™t quite match up to your vigour and vitality after spending the past month eating like Tudor wenches in the court of Henry VIII. Weâ€™ve emerged blinking into the grey January light with additional parts to our bodies that werenâ€™t there before Christmas. Not extra hands or eyes or useful stuff, more large, ungainly lumps around thighs and stomachs that make fastening belts, buckles and buttons a trying and ultimately unsatisfying scenario. Oh what can be done?
Donâ€™t despair! For unlike every womenâ€™sâ€™ mag, breakfast telly show and supermarket and their promises of detox svelteness via lettuce and grimacing, Guilty Pleasures is here to rescue you from your annual lardy leg woe and start 2012 with a delicious diet of disco dancing, pop music and ridiculous fun at our Letâ€™s Get Physical Disco Workout Party!
Breaking free from our chrysalis of Quality Street, grog and pastry weâ€™ll be stepping into our sneakers and slaying the beast of blubber with an all out marathon of meganess on Saturday 28th January at Londonâ€™s magnificent KOKO.
Kicking off the whole she bang, weâ€™ll be bending, stretching and pulling you into shape with a custom choreographed mass aerobics class that will get your pulse racing and your endorphins running amok.
Up in the balcony bar Prince Nelly will help wash down that pint of muscle relaxant with ease at his Pump Up the Jam 90â€™s dance-a-thon as he plays a parade of hits from C&C Factory, Adeva and the like.
Of course not only are we here for body beautiful; weâ€™re here to ease your mind courtesy of Father Oates and his confessional booth. If Christmas saw you indulge in matters of muckiness and SHAME then he will sooth your strife with his inner cleansing via good Godly advice and a nip of Holy Vodka.
As weâ€™ll all be putting our bodies through its paces, it makes sense to dress accordingly so retrieve your trainers from the back of the wardrobe, step into the spandex and slap on your sweatband as we transform ourselves into supreme physical beings and give our bodies the wholesome start to 2012 that itâ€™s been craving!
So come and work it out with GP and LETâ€™S GET PHYSICAL!
