Why did Rich start?

When Rich joined The Barn, he had faced one of the most challenging years of his life. 

After years of running a successful pub restaurant business in the centre of Cambridge, in March 2020, he was forced to close his doors and fight for survival. 

With over 45 people on his payroll, a young family and a high wave of uncertainty for what was still to come, Rich was tipping the scales at a little under 100kg and in poor physical condition. 

There could have been any number of reasons or excuses for why Rich wasn’t ready to take control and responsibility for his health, but he knew something needed to change. 

It was at this point he reached out to The Barn for help. 

Setting Up for Success

Achieving results like Rich’s requires detailed assessment and planning for the road ahead. 

Naturally, owning a pub and being a father to a young family, there will be plenty of challenges along the way, and these initial targets were met with scepticism.

“I don’t think we could achieve that goal weight” is a common message in the early sessions. 

However, through setting clear goals, and expectations for what was required. We manage his progress week to week. These early concerns swiftly disappeared as the confidence in the results being achieved started to grow. 

What was Rich's Nutrition Plan like?

The first step in creating Rich’s nutrition plan was to assess his starting body composition and highlight any specific requirements. 

Rich had a nutrition plan to build to meet the demands of his busy schedule, whilst ensuring that the meals weren’t bland and boring. 

Starting off, we looked to reduce his carbohydrate intake and increase his protein and vegetable intake. 

This would allow him to have a good amount of food to recover well and feel energised throughout the day! 

Being an owner of a pub, saying no to the booze completely just wasn’t an option… 

He managed to get control over his alcohol intake and fit this into his newfound lifestyle whilst still making progress week on week.

What did Rich most enjoy about his time with us at The Barn?

In his own words, the best thing about his transformation was “Having that zest for life again” 

Whilst dropping over 20kg is an incredible physically achievement, the benefits he’s seen in his mental health have been equally phenomenal. 

He managed to get control over his alcohol intake and fit this into his newfound lifestyle whilst still making progress week on week.

What's next for Rich?

With the pub reopening, and life somewhat getting back to normal. Rich’s transformation has set him up for an amazing 2022 to come. 

Whilst maintaining his current body composition over the past few months, he’s booked himself in for multiple Marathons, Tough Mudders and challenges that all seemed to be nothing more than a pipe dream 12 months ago. 

Rich wants to continue his progress with personal training and continue to push himself to new limits.
