Daniel – I started horrendously overweight completely inactive, generally exhausted and low on confidence and energy

“Thought it was a good opportunity though to reflect on the past few months at MA. I started in February horrendously overweight (the biggest id ever been), completely inactive, generally exhausted and low on confidence and energy. I was wearing XXXL clothes, size 46” trousers & all my clothes were brought online.

My weights, measures and scores in that first man test were pretty frightening – I weighed 133kg and managed the 1k ‘run’ in 9.41…never have I wanted to quit something as much as I did during that!

Now – I weighed 107kg at last man test – down over 4st, knocked out 45 press-ups, 29 burpees and run is down nearly half what it was in Feb at 5:10. I’ve also lost nearly 20 cm from both my waist and chest.

At the last man test I was amazed to get a red band something I really never thought would be possible. I did my first 5k about a month ago and now actually look forward to going running. I’ve signed up for Tough Mudder in September. I’m wearing XL clothes and down to 40” jeans – I can actually walk into a shop and get pick something off the shelf. Below are my before and now pics.

The encouragement and help you all have given to me and all of the other guys is incredible – thank you – true Man Alive spirit.

Thanks especially to Hat and Andy and the other coaches for their continued support both in training and away from it.

Good luck in your man tests next week and look forward to hearing and seeing everyone’s incredible results and achievements!”
