This fitness trainer put on weight to understand his clients…and then got into shape once more

Drew Manning, a personal fitness trainer, has never had a weight problem. Having played sport from a young age, he’s been pretty much been in shape all his life. When one of his overweight clients told him that there was no way he could understand what it meant to be in an unhealthy body, Drew realised that he needed to experience it himself.

He worked out a twelve-month programme, divided into two parts. During the first part, he would deliberately gain weight, whilst in the following six months he would lose it and get himself back into shape exactly as he had been. He uploaded evidence of his progress online every single week.

Here’s what happened. We think this guy is a true inspiration!

  • Muscles stretched: sternocleidomastoid muscles.
  • How to perform: Place your hands on your hips, keep your spine straight, and tilt your head back. For a bigger stretch, you can put your hands on your forehead.
