The Y Plan is an exercise programme devised by Lesley Mowbray and Jill Gaskell for the London YMCA, and very popular in United Kingdom during the 1990s. Emphasising short but regular workouts without any specialist equipment, the first book based on the programme, titled The Y Plan, was published in 1990. Television presenter Anthea Turner was the public face of The Y Plan, appearing alongside the creators in numerous books, videos and magazine features. A further video was made, entitled Y-Plan countdown, in which one does an exercise regime of 36 days, with 3 levels of difficulty.
