After a shock weigh in Corry decided to take the leap and sign up to our online personal training with Jamie where he achieved amazing results. 

We spoke to him below to find out some more about his reasons for signing up.

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Corry (Frank Corrigan) I’m 55 years old, I’m a class 1 lorry driver from Uddingston.

What prompted you to start your fitness journey?

I was visiting my father in hospital and when the nurse came to weigh him I asked her jokingly to weigh me, she agreed and to my astonishment I weighed 16 stone 9lb. This was a total shock as I had no idea I was that heavy and I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. I knew I had to do something, I felt terrible, my confidence was shattered and I had very low self esteem. I needed a major plan ASAP so I spoke to Jamie and asked him for his help.  Along with guidance and support he provided me with a personalised 8 week training programme to do at home as well as nutritional advice. I couldn't wait to get started but I didn’t have any equipment whatsoever, so Jamie worked my plan around things I had at home I.e. table, chairs, and hall staircase with all my workouts being completed in my hallway. 

How has this impacted your life? 

The impact this has had on my life is unbelievable. I feel like a totally different person. Over the last 8 weeks I have lost 2 stone and 5 inches from around my stomach. I’m happier, healthier, fitter than ever and I have got my confidence back. I am so proud of myself as I have got my life back through sheer determination and consistency every day for 8 weeks.

What are your goals going forward? 

My goals are to stay on the program and keep doing what I’m doing. I would like to join an NL gym once lockdown is over as I now feel more confident in myself.

Do you have any further comments? 

I am so proud of what I have achieved over the last 8 weeks. I am proof of what can be done with determination, hard work and the right person behind you. 

I would like to say a special thank you to Jamie for his constant contact, support and words of wisdom throughout. I could never have done this without him. He has changed my life. He's a star. 

We would like to say a massive well done to Corry for his hard work and determination and we hope to see you in one of our gyms very soon. Keep up the good work.
