A MALVERN post-natal fitness start-up is one of five new British businesses chosen to show the highs and lows of establishing a company in Britain in 2013.

Former Army captain and mother-of-two Anna Downs, who lives in West Malvern with her college lecturer husband Dickie, is to be filmed taking her innovative new fitness and exercise classes, Fiesta Fit Club, to the next level as part of an initiative run by national enterprise campaign Start Up Britain.

For the series Confessions of a Start Up, Mrs Downs, who is 34, has been chosen by judges along with four other businesses to film the everyday realities for fledgling businesses, such as finding funding, brainstorming new products and reaching new customers.

The film will document the story behind Fiesta Fit Club before a film première later this year.
