York Sport Transformation Challenge

Get fit, healthy and in-shape for 2017!

We put six contestants and Harry Hometime through a four-week training programme under the supervision of York Sport Village's experts, each with the goal of transforming their bodies.

The man and the woman who burnt the greatest percentage of body fat over the four weeks both win a year's membership to York Sport Village and 3 sessions to train on their new Velodrome opening in May.
