Diabetes reversed and 16kg lost

Some awesome news today chaps! So happy!

Last February a month before I joined ManAlive I went for a blood test and was told I have type 2 diabetes. Blood test showed my blood HbA1c was 67 - Super High. Both my parents have diabetes and I know how hard it is to live with this.

4 months after joining ManAlive 16kg lighter I went for another blood test which showed I had gone back to 40 HbA1c.

Today I went in after a blood test only to find out I have reversed it. HbA1cc came back at 36!

Man I am super duper happy and thankful for ALL of your support over the past 10 months. All that hard work and sweat has paid off.

Robin - Is it life-changing? You bet!

I joined ManAlive in October 2015. Since then, I've attended over 700 sessions. Is it life-changing? You bet!

Before joining ManAlive, I lived in the USA, in NY. I did attend an outdoor boot camp similar to MA, so I thought the transition would suit me.

It did. However, the main difference is the holistic approach of ManAlive. Previously I thought working out was enough. From the photo, you can see it wasn't!

The tailored training, the nutritional advice, and the camaraderie of the group help keep me focused on my goals of maintaining strength and stamina and being beach body lean. (Well, as best as).

I try to attend a minimum of three times a week, often four, as there is something special about getting up early on a freezing winter's morning and joining other like-minded lunatics in working out.

We laugh, cry and occasionally drink together.

I could also clearly see that my weight was increasing, and I just knew I had to do something

My journey with ManAlive started in early 2017. At the time I was suffering from constant heartburn and reflux which meant I had to avoid certain foods, had to sleep sitting up and took Gaviscon like sweets. It was just miserable. I could also clearly see that my weight was increasing, and I just knew I had to do something.

I'm not from the Watford area originally so I didn't know anyone at ManAlive but after reading the testimonials online I decided to give it a shot. My first day was interesting to say the least, not having done any real exercise for the best part of 20 years really showed. After a couple of weeks, I began to question whether I was able to keep up.

I'm glad I stuck with it. The encouragement from the coaches and the other blokes who were in the same boat as me, or had recently been in that position, played a big part. At no point have I been made to feel like I've failed in each area, but rather gives me the focus to try again.

For me personally it's about the comradery, which you don't get from a gym or working out alone. It's about having a laugh with like-minded people and at the same time pushing yourself to be a better you. There are no posers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a minimum level of fitness needed to join?

No. The programme is designed in such a way that you can work at your own level and progress as your strength and fitness improves. We’ve worked with guys who struggled to walk a few lengths of the pitch when they started and are now running marathons, climbing mountains and completing triathlons.

Is there a maximum age limit?

No. We have no upper age limit. Most of our members are between 30 & 60. We generally don’t accept guys younger than 30 but will view each application on it’s merits.

If I have an injury/illness can I join?

It depends on many factors such as when the original injury/illness was, what happened and how you recovered (or not). We’ll discuss it with you when you apply and if necessary contact your doctor or physio therapist (with your permission) for a professional opinion.

Can I change and shower after the sessions?

Yes we have parking, changing and shower facilities.


What do the training sessions entail?

Every training session is different to help you stay motivated and engaged, however most sessions follow a similar proven format. We start by increasing your core body temperate before working on your mobility, improving those stiff achy areas and getting you ready for the session. We then move onto the strength portion of the session where we focus on getting you as strong and resilient as possible. Next up is the conditioning phase where the emphasis is working hard and then taking short rest breaks, to increase your heart rate and metabolism over the next 24hrs maximising calorie and fat burn. We then finish with a good stretch. We ensure there is a good mix of individual, pairs and team work to cater for all preferences as well as giving you targets at every single session.

How many guys are at each session?

This varies based on the location and the time of year but in general there is an average of 20-25 guys at each training session.

What are the days and times of the training sessions?

Sessions run on:

Monday: 06:00 & 19:00

Tuesday: 06:00 & 19:00

Wednesday: 06:00 & 19:00

Thursday: 06:00 & 19:00

Friday: 06:00 & 19:00

Saturday: 06:00 & 19:00

You'll have access to all sessions with your unlimited membership.

Is this more fun than they gym?

Yes. We know the gym can be dull and monotonous so we do everything possible to make your experience an enjoyable one. From interactive and competitive training sessions, to planed and organised events, to regular socials and much more.

Is this a Rugby programme?

No. We are simply based at a Rugby club as it affords us excellent year-round training and changing facilities, as well as storage for the vast amount of kit and equipment we use. No previous rugby (or any other sports) experience is necessary.
