Gorka Marquez forced to delay class after laptop breaks

Gorka Marquez, 30, took to his Instagram story to say sorry to fans who had paid to join his online fitness class, after he could not get his laptop to work. The Strictly Come Dancing pro shared that he had not simply “forgotten” to show up to teach, but he was instead trying to fix his laptop battery as he assured followers that he would be “with them shortly”.

Gorka is teaching a weekly workout programme during lockdown over on his G-Fitness webpage, that is run alongside his girlfriend Gemma Atkinson, 36.

The classes cost those who would like to join £4 per class, which amounts to around £80 a month.

However this morning he appeared to run into technical difficulties, while attempting to set up his live stream for waiting participants.

He said on his Instagram story: “Hey guys, I haven’t forgot our class.

“The class is happening, but I have had technical issues.

“My computer is not switching on but I will fix the battery, so I will be with you shortly.”(sic)

However, thankfully fans will still be able to catch up on the workout, even if they missed the original slot.

The website states that workouts instructed by Gorka stay live for the next 24 hours.

The Strictly pro is a keen health enthusiast, who has a Level 3 in personal training.

On his social media, he often shares snaps of his gruelling fitness regime in his home gym.

In a recent shirtless photo, he shared that his goal this year was to help his followers feel “fitter and stronger”.

He typed: “LIVE WORKOUTS ARE BACK. Hey guys as promised I’m back with New live workouts.
