Nick Spencer


My name is Nick Spencer, I am 41 years old and I am employed as a Catering Development Manager for an Inter City Rail Company.


Nick BeforeYou may surmise from my job that eating and drinking forms a big part of that role. Prior to November last year I ate and drank and could probably have won a medal for it. I always wanted to lose weight but just couldn't be bothered. Even though I couldn't buy nice clothes it did not deter my lust for the finer things in life like good food and great wines. I would regularly eat out at fine restaurants in London, the richest dishes washed down with a couple of litres of excellent plonk! In November last year I achieved a record for me, I weighed 22 stone!


Luckily I needed to have my 6 front teeth crowned.  For two weeks with temporary teeth I could barely eat - 2 weeks later with new teeth I still struggled to eat, often feeling sorry for how Shergar used to chew his hay. Weight came off losing a stone in those weeks with no exercise.  I grasped the opportunity and joined a gym embarking on a fitness regime under my own guidance.  I did well but could not push myself far enough. I contacted New Image, met Jago and told him that my goal was to enter a Triathlon In August this year. My first contact with Jago was in May.  I could see the shock on his face when I told him of my aspirations, but he did’nt deter me instead taking on the challenge.


So how did I do it?


Nick AfterI have been working with New Image now for 12 weeks and with their training plan, I embarked on a fitness regime which would help me to realise my goal. The triathlon consists of 750m swim in the Thames, 20km bike ride and 5km run.


In August I completed my goal, I completed the Triathlon in 2hrs, 1 minute and now have a medal to prove it!  Even better, I now weigh 17stone 4lb!  


I thoroughly enjoy my new lease of life - I have no doubt that if I had continued I would not have seen 50 and not have had the enjoyment of seeing my family grow.


On a final note, I was the best in the world for making every excuse under the sun of why I couldn't do it, but I did and so can you!
