Reporter David George is taking up the challenge of getting fit with the help of the new Village Hotel gym at Lakeside, Portsmouth - and we’ll be following his progress over the next six weeks as he attempts to go from fat to fit with the help of a personal trainer.
At the moment, the only six-pack I have is sitting in my fridge.
My lifestyle has had a detrimental impact on my health – but hopefully that’s all about to change.
The new Village Hotel gym in Portsmouth has hooked me up with a personal trainer for the next six weeks, to see if I can actually shed some weight (and, crucially, keep it off).
Training began this week which, for a lazy, 105kg takeaway-lover like myself, came as a big shock to the system.
Lifting weights and being pushed to my physical limits by my trainer Richard Higgins (pictured above), served as a fierce reminder of how unfit I really am. But I’m enjoying it. The adrenaline rush of getting through the exercises is something I had practically forgotten existed.
It’s going to be a long journey, but fingers crossed I can prove that no matter what shape or size you are, you can get fit in a matter of weeks.
