As many people have more time on their hands becoming fitter has never been more relevant. There are a few hidden gems loved by celebrities and the public at large that have been used behind closed doors in intimate quiet spaces for decades. These workout plans are effective, require little investment, and will boost vitality regardless of age.


BX Plans, Pilates, and Yoga are without a doubt the ‘grand oldies’ of fitness and have shaped our ‘get fit’ culture into what it is today.

This fitness plan was originally created in the 1950s for Canadian air force pilots. It is very niche, but extremely effective. As many pilots are sedentary or inactive for long periods of time, the need to exercise was crucial. The solution was the creation of 5 basic exercises to create peak fitness.

Loved for its ease and practicality the 5BX Plans Handbook became a worldwide bestseller with 23 million copies of the book being sold in 13 languages. Fast forward 70 years and it is still a much loved favourite. High-profile celebrities such as Dame Helen Mirren, Prince Philip, and Prince Charles have all benefitted from its use.

BX Plans Fitness is available for men, women, and children. The XBX fitness plan for women has 8 exercises that only take 12-minutes a day to complete. A colour illustrated book is priced at £12.99 and contains an easy-to-follow workout plan.
