Students Help Sarah with Fitness Project
From left: Sarah Stevenson MBE, with students Adam Holloway and
Doncaster College students have been helping 3 times
Taekwondo World Champion and Olympic Bronze medallist Sarah
Stevenson with her new fitness project.
Television and Film students Adam Holloway and Michael Burton
have been videoing Sarah’s new venture, The Fitness Project– an
innovative online campaign that aims to educate the public about
the training that an Olympic athlete undertakes and how this can be
applied to their own daily routines.
Filmed in Sarah's own home in Manchester and on location in
Doncaster, the students have worked to very tight deadlines and in
even tighter spaces.
After a long video shoot the students set to work on editing the
footage with the help of their tutors. Effects and music were added
to Sarah’s specifications and the result is a series of 10 to 15
minute full body and cardio workouts which can be seen on The
Fitness Project website. The public can join the scheme; watch the
videos and workout in their own homes.
Sarah, who read the athletes' oath at the Opening Ceremony of
the London 2012 Olympics, said, "I would like to say a big thank
you to the amazing students at Doncaster College and tutor John
Stopforth, who worked tirelessly to help get 'The Fitness Project'
up running in such a short space of time."
Sarah, an ex-Doncaster College student, continued, "Their
professionalism was to the highest standard and I know they are
keen to offer new ideas for the next time and I'm really looking
forward to working with them all again."
Adam and Michael are second year students on the Creative Media
Production Level 3 Extended Diploma (Film & TV) course at the
College. Adam said, "It was a great experience working with Sarah
on a professional brief. We had to light and direct Sarah’s
performance ourselves so it was a great learning curve"
