    Story


    Hi,
    Im Max from Manchester, Just 2 years ago, I topped the scales at over 21.5 stone, did no exercise and had virtually no self confidence, I was a teenager who was morbidly obese, bullied in the streets and I decided to do something about it and in the space of 2 years, I lost over 10 stone with no pills or surgery, just willpower, exercise and dieting.
    When I was at my heaviest,I was too frightened to go to a gym because I thought that I would be laughed at,(I now know this isn't the case) so instead of going to the gym, I went on runs at night when it was dark, I did try running in the day but I would get high school children shouting abuse in the street such as 'MOOBS and 'RUN, FATTIE' so I stuck to running at night.

    I want to encourage more people to lose weight as it really has changed my life,
    Larger people get put down on a regular basis just because they are fat, it doesn't give the right for people to shout abuse in the street over it. Anybody that is on a weightloss journey, I would say don't be disheartened by bullies, I know that I was always spurred on by success stories but never saw many from men. After the response I had from people wanting to lose weight too, I decided to try and help as many people who are in the same position as I can. Now I’m at my ideal weight of 11.5 stone having lost over 10 stone, I would really like to inspire people to fitness and healthy living.

    I just hope that I can get more people who have given up to see this and give them some hope, I had given up at one point but it is never too late, I hope that younger people read this and decide I can change, because it does change your life!
    I now that starting the journey is the hardest part so I would like to launch free weightloss classes which are friendly, fun and engaging creating a family atmosphere with fitness workouts, inspirational speakers and confidence building too, making it fun to work out together and free!
