In Peter's Words

I used to play sport when I was younger but stopped when I started work. I've really let myself go and my annual health check was a complete shocker. I'm clinically obese, have high blood pressure and high cholesterol. The doctor said I’m a heart attack waiting to happen and it's scared the life out of me.

I’ve joined a gym, started working with a nutritionist and seeing a personal trainer twice a week. I'm using the Trainsmart app to log my activity so my trainer can keep an eye on me and make sure I do it.


Peter is a manager in an accountancy firm and hasn’t exercised for over 10 years. Due to work pressure, he’s picked up a lot of bad habits - smoking 10 cigarettes a day, eating junk food and having a couple of pints each evening on the way home. His father died from a heart attack when he was in his mid-50's. Peter is determined to improve his lifestyle, lose weight and live to see his two young children grow up.
