ith nine months of lockdown tucked under our straining belts, is it any wonder what all that livin’ la vida sofa has done to us?
It’s left just about every man, woman and dog struggling to flatten their our own particular Covid curve.
That our happiness is very much linked to our healthiness is something local fitness coach Tiernan Dillon firmly believes in.
And given that a Department Of Health survey in November revealed that two thirds of Irish men are overweight or obese, the bould Tiernan has actually decided to do something about it, coming up with an 8-week online programme, ProjectMan, designed specifically for the chubbier male of the species.
With plenty of local lads more than ready for this jelly eliminator, Tiernan only has five spaces left for the January 18th start. And he knows how they’re probably feeling too, given his own long and winding search for that right combination of diet, exercise and, most importantly, pleasure.
“That’s the one thing that is nearly always missing when it comes to all these weight-loss or health routines,” he explains. “Food you actually love, or a little booze, chocolate, some guilty pleasures. You have to include those in any diet, otherwise, it’s all work and no staying power…”
Having been a coach at Nikafit for the past two years – after, eh, seven years of selling cars in Iraq – it was trainer and mentor Katy Tanham that introduced Tiernan to the importance of nutrition and calories when it came to that all-important energy balance.
And so it was that ProjectMan was born, Tiernan having made it his life’s mission to “strip away the BS” when it comes to the fitness industry by providing men with the one-off set of basic tools for getting healthy, and happy.
With our fine, muscular belly sucked all the way in, GG caught up with Tiernan down at the harbour today to find out more…
Starting on January 18th, you can find out more about – and sign up to (before Jan 14th) – ProjectMan 1.0 right abouthere. Cover image courtesy ofcalmzone.
