Ben Russell – Member Spotlight – July 2018

Why Did You Decide To Join Ab Corporate Fitness?

I had a couple of reasons for joining the gym. The first reason was my general health and well being which was in a poor state. I had come to realise that I needed to take action so I was looking for help with that. The second reason is very good friends of mine who as members had made excellent improvements in themselves. They also talked very positively about the experience at AB. On top of that Daniel was constantly challenging me to join and I can’t say no to a challenge.

Current Goal(s) In The Gym Or In Life?

My current goal is to be able to complete community triathlons over the summer just so that I can say I have completed a triathlon which would have made people (myself included) laugh not that long ago.

What Would You Like To Know More About?

BOTH: We would both like to know more about cleansing and body detox, the pros and cons and the best way to do it.

Favourite And Least Favourite Exercise Or Class?

My favourite class is boxing. I’m not sure why but punching the bags is very cathartic. My least favourite exercise is anything that involves wearing the 20KG weight vest. I can’t believe how difficult that makes everything and thinking that I have lost the equivalent of four of them definitely makes me realise how bad my health actually was.

What’s Been Your Most Memorable Achievement Since Becoming A Member?

My most memorable achievement has been the fact that I can actually run 5KM as a result of losing the weight and increasing my fitness. This has inspired my goal to complete a triathlon.

Whats Something That Your Gym Mates Would Be Surprised To Know About You?

Possibly that I can get addicted to really bad reality tv shows like ‘Married at First Sight’ and ‘Love Island’.
