When 20 Roefield Leisure members embarked on a 12 week body makeover challenge to transform their bodies following the excesses of Christmas, they did not expect one of their team to feature in the top five transformations in the country as part of a national competition.
Headed by duty manager Ben Dewhurst, the Roefield team set out to achieve various individual fitness goals as part of the nationwide challenge in partnership with sports nutrition brand USN.
One of the members, Nathan Peel, is now in the top five entrants and will be heading to BodyPower Expo in May to meet the other finalists and go head to head to win £5,000 in cash, £2,000 worth of USN sports nutrition products and the chance to become an ambassador for the company.
Ben said: “He undoubtedly deserves his place in the top five. His transformation in 12 weeks is second to none – he was always first in the gym at 6 am every morning and adapted his nutrition to match his training. The results speak for themselves. We are now only nine weeks away from BodyPower, so we will be working very hard to give Nathan every chance of walking away as the overall winner.”
Nathan, who is the captain at Clitheroe Rugby Club and lives in Waddington, said: “I needed to make a lifestyle change and after joining Roefield, I undertook 12 weeks of hard work to transform myself both physically and mentally.
“My body fat reduced and my fitness and strength increased. I am so happy with the results and I can’t begin to explain my elation at being announced the winner of the Roefield USN challenge, never mind hearing I’d been selected as a national finalist.
“I’ve got my fingers crossed for May.”
l Nathan will be at BodyPower at the NEC in Birmingham on Friday and Saturday May 16th and 17th. Anyone wishing to show their support should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and ticket prices.
