Paul’s Back is Back on Track

Personal training prevents spine operation

When Paul Dodd first met with Steve Fitt, Personal Trainer at Gosport Leisure Centre, he had two objectives in mind – to improve his core strength and to lose 15kg.  Great goals, made even more remarkable as Paul had a fused broken back, two replacement knees and was heading for further surgery to correct a slipped disc.

Six months on, Paul has lost an impressive 17kgs and is still losing. The astounding improvement in his back means Paul is no longer facing corrective spinal surgery.

Paul said:

“The last six months have been a real journey – I’m absolutely delighted with the results.  Losing the weight is great, but the look of amazement on my consultant’s face when he studied my latest MRI scan and saw how much my spine had healed was a really special moment.  I just couldn’t have done it with Steve – he’s really changed my life”.

Personal Trainer Steve said: 

“Working with Paul’s previous injuries meant I had to adapt and monitor his training plan being careful to slowly build strength and supporting muscle to reduce the risk of further damage.  I worked with Paul for six months and his amazing progress shows just what can be achieved through dedication, hard work and a regular routine.  As Paul’s transformation shows – working on core strength and stability really can make all the difference”.
