The latest client of the season is Mark Farrington. Mark started training at the Bolton early this year in June looking to lose some weight and get fit after one of his friends had done. Mark also had high blood pressure and is turning 50 next year, so he decided it’s time to make some changes.
Quote from Mark: “When you’re over weight you spend time making excuses not to do anything”
He began training with Ben once a week and has increased his activity level with 3 additional sessions outside Bodypro, following programmes set by Ben. He also started using his mountain bike once a week.
Goals aren’t just achieved in the gym… So he made several changes to his lifestyle.
He cut right down on alcohol and improved his diet by introducing a variety of vegetables into his cooking and made all his meals from scratch, all of a good nutritional standard. He controlled his snacking also as this was a big issue prior to his training.
Since June he has made some massive improvements in all areas.
