After retiring from rugby Henry had found himself in a bit of a rut when it came to training and keeping himself in shape. He had always been in good shape but found himself gaining unwanted weight and not knowing what to do about it. He performed a 12-week personal training transformation to really learn how he can get in shape and maintain this without relying on playing rugby every weekend.
Over the 12-weeks Henry lost an amzing 34 pound of body fat, improved his cardiovascular fitness and strength dramatically, but more importantly learned what it takes to get in great shape.
Henry performed a combination of weights and cardio 4 times per week for no more than an hour at a time, monitored his steps everyday to ensure his calorie output targets were hit and took a simple approach to nutrition. All of this meant that he would lose body fat each week but maintained his energy levels for work and day to day life.
We find a lot of people come to us who were in great shape when they played sports as a kid but don’t know how to stay or get in shape in their 30’s and 40’s. Things can be a lot different from your regular day to day as a kid or teenage to your day to day in your 30/40’s. This is why Henry’s transformation needed to work around his work and life commitments but still causing the desired effects. This is important when considering a fitness transformation that is sustainable. Pick the things that are going to require the least amount of work with the largest return on investment.
Don’t sweat the small stuff
