We know Rachel Finch as a TV presenter and former Miss World contestant. Now she has a new string to her bow – a Minion dancer.
Here we talk to her about her dance routine and why exercising is so much better when you add some fun dance moves. Here’s what she said.
1. Rachael, you’ve made exercise fun. Tell us why exercise is important and more about your own exercise routine?
Australia’s childhood obesity rates are continually growing with 9 out of 10 children not getting enough exercise. Characters like the Minions are an easy way to help inspire and encourage kids to get active. The routine is so easy to follow, so anyone can do it in the comfort of their home. It was such a fun routine to come up with and features moves that even Balthazar Bratt would be jealous of. Parents can join in too!
2. What are you currently working on and what’s coming up?
In the fitness space, I’m currently working on the B.O.D by Finch program as we’re redeveloping it with a new and exciting collection of moves. Additionally, I have a number of commitments over the next few months with the Spring Racing Carnival down in Melbourne as a Myer Ambassador and also a correspondent/presenter with Channel 7. It’s a busy but very exciting time of year for me.
3. Tell us what inspired you to do this dance video with Minions?
In Australia, over a quarter of children are overweight or obese. We know how much kids love the Minions from Despicable Me 3, so we’re using the Minions as a way to communicate to encourage kids to get up and get active and move like the Minions.
