Name: Pete Hodgson
Age: 49 and hanging on.
Where do you live (town/city): Wolston, Warwickshire
Weight before camp: 16 stone 3 lbs
Weight after camp: 15 stone 3 lbs
Reason for attending: Simply that as I was approaching 50 and wanted to get fit, lose weight and learn more about healthier lifestyle options.
Highlight of the week: Very many including meeting so many new friends but really nothing can match the incredible sense of achievement you get.
Biggest surprise of the week: The improvement in fitness not to mention losing a stone in a week!! Naturally I was nervous that NBC was for people a lot fitter than me but it was also a surprise to find a good cross section of people with pretty much one common goal.
Did you find any parts especially tough? I really struggled with the fartlek training but have got better since.
Would you come back to NBC or recommend it to a friend? I have already booked the NBC abroad next year. I have two friends attending NBC this week!
Will you be applying anything you have learned on camp to your everyday life? Absolutely, this experience provided exactly the catalyst needed to make the changes I need that I can fit into a busy life. I enjoy the variety and have since lost even more lbs despite a boozy, full fat week in Las Vegas!
