Robin recently took part in our advent abs programme, coming in at second place.

Robin was a worthy contender for the winning spot making massive progress during the programme shedding 1.5kg, losing 1.5% bodyfat and gaining 1kg of muscle mass.

We caught up with Robin after the programme to find out his thoughts.

Read his story below.

Tell us a little bit about you, and why you decided to join the programme?

I decided to join the programme as I was stuck in a rut.  At 47 years old, I was overweight, not interested in anything and was feeling mentally drained. I was drinking most nights and eating takeaways seemed like the best answer to my problems. I had to make a change.

What was your goal and did you reach it?

My goal was to get myself mentally and physically fitter and to start living again. Thanks to my amazing personal trainer pushing me each week I have now reached my goal. I am now on my way to becoming the old me.

How has your 8 week journey impacted on your life for the better?

Advent abs has helped me massively, not only have I noticed a change in my weight and my fitness levels I am now getting up in the morning full of energy with a clear head and a good feeling to start my day ahead.

How do you plan on continuing your new healthy outlook?

Since the programme has ended I have become an NL Leisure member and I will be continuing with my healthy routine by training hard and eating healthy.

Would you be interested in continuing PT or Nutrition?

Yes I would be very interested in personal training. It has helped me massively in many ways. It’s great to have someone there pushing you during tough times.

All of us at NL Leisure would like to say a huge well done to Robin for his fantastic transformation!

Be sure to keep an eye out on our social media for more great stories coming soon.
