AN INSURANCE worker has been named Britain’s fittest person.

He took just 11 minutes and 17 seconds to row 500 metres, do 30 shoulder presses, 30 bunny hops, a three kilometre bike stint, 30 press ups, 30 box jumps, 30 squats, and a one kilometre treadmill run.
Tim, who works in a business development at Towergate Insurance, based in the Octagon, Middleborough, Colchester, set a qualifying time and then beat 50 finalists to claim the title.
