Ryan Cummins, a senior communications planner at the agency, said the plan was to "knock them [the competition] out of the park".

Nick Hutchings, the Men's Fitness brand editor, said the fitness test was "a fun way to make people aware of our brand and what we're about".

Speaking about the project, he said that the collaboration of commercial and editorial teams had made the event a success so far.
