Reporter David George has been getting fit at the new Village Gym at Lakeside, Portsmouth — and we’ve been following his progress over six weeks.
THE past six weeks have quite possibly been the most exercise-filled weeks of my life.
When I started this challenge, the only exercise I did was walking to the door when my takeaway arrived.
Now I genuinely enjoy doing exercise, and my day seems to feel incomplete if I haven’t gone to the gym.
I also feel so much better about myself; I can deadlift half my bodyweight and have lost four inches around my waist (which everyone seems to be talking about).
My diet is also much better – there’s not a pizza or burger in sight and my fridge looks eerily colourful, with veg filling the shelves.
This is all thanks to my personal trainer Rich, who has been brilliant throughout.
I think it’s time to get a proper gym membership – and this time I promise to actually use it!
