Reporter David George is getting fit with the help of the new Village Gym at Lakeside, Portsmouth — and we’re following his progress.

This week has been a bit of a revelation for me.

The fat loss has clearly had a massive impact – as I am now able to fit into clothes that I had previously become a tad too chubby to wear.

One downside is that I need a new wardrobe. But thankfully Christmas is right around the corner, so I’ve lucked in there.

I think a good portion of the fat I had put on during university is finally coming off, and it feels fantastic.

One of this week’s big challenges was taking part in one of Village Gym’s BURN classes. The sessions work on 40-second intervals of exercise, where you try to push yourself to your physical limits.

I was still feeling it three days later, so it’s certainly a good way of getting an intense workout!
