I started with Manvfat in the Wigan league on September 3rd 2018. I was overweight and seriously unfit. I hadn’t done any form of exercise for about 10 years and felt I needed to do something about my fitness and lose a little bit of weight.
Well we have just started week 12 of our season and what can I say. I’ve not felt this good about my fitness and weight in a very long time.
I have suffered with depression and anxiety for about 3 years now after having a breakdown. I have been on tablets for this for 3 years and have coped ok. But since joining manvfat my wellbeing has massively improved.
I’m currently weighing in at the lowest I’ve weighed since before my marriage in 2012. I now play football twice a week going running two to three times a week and have started doing some small abs workouts. My running has gone from 3.5km in 32 mins 9 weeks ago to now running 10km in less than 1hr 7mins. I’ve entered numerous 10k events and intend to do a 10k run in less than 1hr before mid December.
But my biggest achievement I see in myself and so does my family is my depression and anxiety. I feel better in myself than I have in many years and I have stopped taking my tablets over 2 weeks ago and can honestly say I don’t miss them.
So just want to say a massive thank you to manvfat and it’s staff but also to my team mates on 50 stones of white. I have made some amazing friends and if this was all stop tomorrow i know we would all keep intouch.
Remember people. Don’t watch the clock, do what it does and keep going.
