Transformation Tuesday - David Graham!

NLL Latest News

David Graham recently took part in our 6-week Advent Abs programme and witness a great transformation, losing weight and dropping his body fat percentage. David has also taken up a healthier lifestyle, increasing his exercise levels and quitting smoking. 

Read about his story below:

1. Tell us a little bit about you, and why you decided to join Advent Abs?

I recently became a father and this has put me out of training for months, I used to train 4/5 times a week but haven’t had the time to do so. Advent Abs gave me a reason to find time and train effectively each session with a qualified instructor who could give me the kick-start that I’ve been needing. During my time away from training my fitness had became the worst its been and I had put a fair amount of weight on for my usual standard. I had also started to smoke more than I would previously especially at work. As an AA worker I spend most of my time travelling and drive so this leads to poor activity levels.

2. What was your goal and did you reach it?

For me it was to start to training regularly, reduce my body fat and give up smoking, and I have achieved all 3 thus far!

3. How has your 6-week journey impacted on your life for the better?

It has been great, it’s amazing to see such a change so quickly working with Calvin has been perfect. I have picked up some new techniques and new exercises to push on, my diet has improved massively and still get to eat enough food. By stopping smoking I feel fresher every day and have noticed my general moods have been better.

4. How do you plan on continuing your new healthy outlook?

I am going to continue to work on my diet, I still feel I have a few kilos to drop and then I’m going to make a return to my favourite sport, Judo and compete in a few veterans competitions in 2019. This will give me the drive to keep going. Smoking is a massive change and I plan to stay away from them for the indefinite future!


All of us here at NL Leisure would like to say a huge well done to David on his brilliant achievements and wish him all the best with his future fitness goals!
