Are You Fitter Than A Pensioner? - Format

Large Programme Image


Old age has undergone a facelift - frail and weak is now a thing of the past. Each week, young unfit, unhealthy youths are sent off to an adult active retirement community to see if they can meet the challenge of proving their fitness against the super-fit senior residents. The new breed of pensioners will prove ideal mentors to the young lads, but will the experience shock them into changing their ways for good?
