One Man’s quest to be Fit for Fifty!!

Posted on August 13, 2012 in Blog, Client Blogs | by

A review of the annual holiday snaps with the scales starting to creak at near 18 stone and my half-century looming on the horizon inspired me to get “fit4fifty.”Having previously been on a diet, which nearly killed me – quite literally, I decided it was time for some urgent action and enlisted the help of personal trainer Paul Mason.

Having a busy lifestyle in the media industry alongside being chairman at Warrington Town FC, means convenience meals and late night eating are nearly always the order of the day! My first dieting experience in my early 30s left me in hospital with gallstones and an operation, which didn’t quite work out, resulting in emergency surgery and accidentally over dosing on morphine! That diet involved cutting all fatty foods out of my diet – which effectively caused my gallbladder to pack in. A second diet in my 40s saw me shed a couple of stone but as soon as I ended it the weight, as it does for many people, piled back on. Now with a proper diet plan recommended by Paul, who runs Cheshire Personal Training, which includes a 30 day de-tox, cutting out all processed foods, caffeine, chocolate, bread and alcohol, I am determined to achieve my goal of shedding nearly three stone – and most importantly keeping it off and getting myself fit4fifty! Paul has more than 30 years experience in the health and fitness industry. This will involve a new fitness regime, which I can work around my busy schedule and a healthy diet 80 per cent of the time. If I stick to this I am told the weight will stay off – especially after re-booting my metabolism, which had become very sluggish, with the de-tox. As well as improving my health I also intend to improve the wealth of two local charities I am involved with, The Tim Parry Foundation4Peace, where I am a patron and the Warrington Disability Partnership, where I am a trustee. By going public with my campaign it will help me retain focus and hopefully inspire others to get themselves back into shape
