No more excuses

Friday, February 26, 2016

Irish Life recently ran a five week Wellness programme for staff, led by top fitness expert and Irish Life Brand Ambassador, Karl Henry.  The programme consisted of detoxing, diet plans, exercise bootcamps with Karl and weekly weigh-ins.

The results from the people who participated were incredible, with one story in particular really standing out.

In 2009, Sean Walsh was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.  At 57, Sean admits that exercise was not top of his agenda, but apprehensively signed up for the wellness programme after receiving an email in work.  Five tough weeks later, Sean has lost 17 kgs, and 12 inches in measurements.  What is even more amazing is that Sean was told by his doctor that as a result of his hard work, he could come off his diabetes medication!

In this video, Sean catches up with Karl Henry again to look back on the programme, and tell his remarkable story.

So remember, it’s never too late to start your own health journey.
