This week we feature another long term superstar. Darren jumped on board with us 5 years ago and hasn’t looked back! Check out his story! 👇🏽👇🏽
CF: Before finding Citywide, what was your struggle? What were your biggest frustrations?
DS: Over the years my weight had fluctuated wildly. I was always active at work and played sport but would gain weight rapidly and every now and then I would go on a diet and lose weight whenever I got too upset with myself.
CF: How did your struggle and frustration affect your life? What did you feel like before you made your transformation?
DS: I had lots of back issues, I would regularly bulge a disc in my lower back and in between these episodes I would have large periods where all of the muscles in my lower back would spasm.
I was in constant pain, my moods were affected, my output ay work was down and surgery was looking like my only option. None of the doctors suggested losing weight and getting fitter.
CF: How did our program help you?
DS: Before I joined citywide I put my running clothes in the car for a month but never got them out. I initially joined to lose some weight but found after the initial weight loss that the extra strength I had gained was helping with my back. The style of workout just works for me.
CF: How is life different for you now?
Now 5 years in and I can’t imagine life without my bootcamp.
I am fitter and stronger than I have ever been, I am happier and am now 5 years since my last bulging disc.
Whilst it is the longest I have been able to maintain a constant weight, it is my health that has been the biggest change and I absolutely credit Citywide with helping me become pain free and lead a much happier life.
Daz you are an absolute weapon and without fail you turn up and push yourself to greater limits! It’s a joy to watch you smash out a session and it has been a pleasure being a part of your journey!
