"Come on! Two more sets, let's get going!" roared the voice of my personal trainer. I'm in a mess gasping for air, and it was not the prettiest sight."
Peter Davidson, 39 years old, is a dedicated father and husband, with a highly demanding job to top it off.
"On and off when Summer comes basking in its glorious rays, I've jumped on the fitness bandwagon and attempted to eat healthy and go for regular runs. Somehow my enthusiasm usually wanes as we move into winter. Then it's not long before the beers and bacons win me over."
While Peter was aware that he hadn't been conscientious with maintaining a fitness regime, he began to feel the more apparent strain on his body when he was out playing with his four lively children.
"It's not so much that I've lost my once-chiselled and toned body that upsets me, but it was the recent shortness of breaths I experienced when playing with my children that jolted me to make a change. I didn't want to miss out enjoying fatherhood."
Peter had a BMI of 27 when he decided that getting fit would be his top priority. And then his wife presented him with a surprise in February 2013. The first was a personal trainer. The second was an unexpected gift that piqued Peter's curiosity.
