• Short Summary

    Young men exercise with great gusto at the Lucas-Tooth Institute in London.

  • Description

    Titles read: "FIT - FITTER - FITTEST!"

    London.

    At the Lucas-Tooth Institute in Tooley Street we see young men doing keep fit exercises in formation with great gusto. They fling their arms around, do star jumps and do funny postures on the mats that help to break a fall and avoid serious injury - it looks quite comical!

    We hear that the men come from all professions from all over London and the Home Counties. The men throw each other in judo-type moves then box in pairs. They do leaping forward rolls in lines and vault over the box horse (some shots in slow motion). Commentator says these young men are the future instructors in training who will pass on their knowledge to one or other of the boys' organisations.
