“When I had my phone call with Cam about joining ManAlive he asked me what I wanted to get out of it. I told him “a chin and a belly that doesn’t hang over my belt”. He told me he reckoned he could help with that.
12 weeks later and the ManAlive guys are well on the way to delivering on their promise – I’m 11kg lighter and hardly wobble when I run now! What I didn’t bank on was getting a whole lot more into the bargain.
I think that this “thing” (I’ve had real trouble describing to normal people what I’ve been doing 3 times a week for the last 3 months) is really special. The help and advice from the coaches & the gutbuster emails that drop in your inbox before each session telling you how to eat well or sleep better are great but I think the thing that made ManAlive properly special for me has been the guys working alongside me. The welcome, the encouragement, the swearing, the banter, the farting – they’ve all played their part in making the last 36 sessions memorable.
It’s fair to say I’ve loved every painful minute of my ManAlive experience so far and now I’m ready to set (and smash) my next goals.
