The Happy Mondays star is looking to shake his sedentary lockdown lifestyle


Words by: Felicity Martin

Happy Mondays icon Bez is launching his own online fitness classes titled ‘Get Buzzin With Bez’ in a bid to shake his sedentary lockdown lifestyle.

The 56-year-old, famed for his on-stage maraca shaking, plans to follow the orders of a personal trainer as well as visiting a psychologist, learning yoga and trying hypnotherapy.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: “I’d like to think I’m somewhere between Joe Wicks and Mr Motivator.”

“Normally I’ve been burning lots of calories by dancing, going to shows and generally being active,” he continued. “But since we went into the first lockdown I’ve mainly sat on the sofa.”

Starting from January 17th, ‘Get Buzzin With Bez’ can be found on YouTube.

Late last year, Happy Mondays teamed up with skateboard brand Palace to produce a clothing range inspired by the Manchester band’s iconic style and sound.
