Derrick Errol Evans, better know as “Mr. Motivator”, is a Jamaican-born British exercise instructor. He rose to fame in the early 1990s through appearances on the UK breakfast television show GMTV, where he dressed in tight, colourful spandex outfits. He released a number of fitness and workout videos in the 1990s.
In addition to his media, motivational and fitness work, Evans and his family own and operate H’Evans Scent, an ecotourism resort, and PaintSplat, Jamaica’s first paintball operation. Mr Motivator appeared at 2010 Bestival on the Isle of Wight as a special guest on the main stage. Evans returned to GMTV in 2009 as part of their new keep-fit campaign. This led to Evans meeting the former British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, in promotion of the NHS Change4Life campaign.
Currently Mr.M lives in Jamaica, and travels all over the globe coaching individuals and groups to make the world a fitter, healthier place.
