After the birth of his son our Manchester client Mohamed decided he wanted to change his life. 70lbs later, he has done just that and he’s not stopping there!
Mohamed, 34, from Manchester is currently on a mission to lose a life-changing 100lbs in weight. He started training with us at our Manchester gym after deciding the time was right to focus on himself and his health and fitness.
Throughout most of his life Mohamed had consistently weighed around 13 stone. Yet after years of a more sedentary lifestyle, he began to focus less and less on his health and diet. As a result, his weight had shot up to 21 stone, almost double his usual weight.
It took just one picture for him to turn his lifestyle around for good. Shortly after his son was born, Mohamed and his family were taking photos in the hospital. When he was shown a photo of himself holding his son, Mohamed was horrified by what he saw.
Mohamed said, “When my son was born we were in the hospital taking pictures of each of us holding him,” he said. “I saw the picture of myself holding him and I couldn’t recognise myself. I knew then that I had to make a change.”
It was then that Mohamed approached us and began working with our personal trainer Chris to develop a new approach to his training and nutrition to help him get on track towards his whopping goal.
Chris said “Mohamed and I set a goal to drop over 100lbs in total over our time together, but by the end of 2022 we wanted Mohamed to have lost over 80lbs. As of writing this he has achieved an incredible drop of 70lbs and is well on track to hit his 80lbs goal by December. Next year I have no doubt we will cross the 100lbs mark, which will be such a moment for Mohamed.”
In terms of his diet Chris said, “Sometimes simple is better and we eventually landed on a whole-foods diet that prioritised protein and vegetables but still allowed him the flexibility to eat well with his family in the evenings by keeping in the foods they enjoy to eat together”
After losing a massive 70lbs, Mohamed is now baiting Chris to push him harder and the pair are laser focused on their long-term goal of crossing that 100lbs lost mark.
Mohamed now looks forward to the future. He said “I am now in a position where I’m close to my year-end goals and have developed an increased interest in fitness which will feed into defining my future goals… I now view this as only the start of the journey which will serve as a platform for my future goals.”
Well we can’t say much more, this is an incredible client story and journey and we want to congratulate Mohamed and Chris for all they have achieved and continue to achieve in Manchester.
