Health & Fitness Magazine Shoot

In June 2014, Get Living London hosted an exciting photo-shoot with Health & Fitness magazine. Photographer Will Ireland and the team used one of the stunning Get Living London homes as the backdrop for the magazine’s ‘Home Fitness’ and ’10 Minute Tone-Up’ sections, capturing great images of the models performing (easy to do at home) exercises.

For Health & Fitness, this was an opportunity for the team to go behind the scenes of the former Athletes’ Village, and see how the athletes’ accommodation from London 2012 has been transformed into London’s first legacy neighbourhood. With Get Living London residents benefitting from unrivalled access to the world-class sporting and fitness facilities scattered across Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the shoot also gave a glimpse of the pro-active lifestyle on offer for the community at East Village.

Starting in October 2014 the images from the photo-shoot have been appear monthly in Health & Fitness magazine. The most recent issue featuring images of the Get Living London homes is available on newsstands now.
