A Glangwili hospital worker is “beyond thrilled” after losing over three stone in just eight weeks thanks to FFIT Cymru.

Father-of-two Nic Davies is celebrating his life-changing weight loss results after taking part in the S4C show, which is available to watch in full online at s4c.cymru

Over the past two months viewers have tuned in as the Penygroes resident, along with fellow leaders Leon Welsby, Catherine Lewis, Judith Owens, and Mathew Thomas, have overhauled their health and fitness routines in a bid to transform their lives.

In the series finale, staggering results were revealed about Nic’s transformation. Not only has he seen his weight plummet from 18 st 4 lbs to 15 st 0.5lb, his fitness age has also fallen by 20 years and his fitness lever has increased by 40%.

His cholesterol level has also been halved, and he no longer need to take medication to control high blood pressure.

Nic says that he is determined to stick to his new, healthier lifestyle and has signed up to take part in this year’s Cardiff Half Marathon. He says; “I am beyond thrilled at the results. I never thought I would be able to lose this much, I am so pleased that I signed up and I wouldn’t change the past eight weeks for the world.

“The benefits that this has had for me, both in terms of my health and confidence, have been life changing.

“I’m determined to stick to my new healthier lifestyle and in order to motivate myself I’ve signed up to my first ever half marathon, the Cardiff Half Marathon, along with the Llan10 cycle this year.

“I’d like to thank my family, the community, my fellow leaders, and everyone for their fantastic support. This just proves that when you put your mind to it, you can really change your life.”

Throughout the programme the five leaders received expert support from fitness trainer Rae Carpenter, psychologist Dr Ioan Rees, and dietician Sioned Quirke, with plans shared online for everyone to follow.

The series will return in 2019, and more information about taking part will be shared on social media platforms. In the meantime, the entire FFIT Cymru series can be watched again as a boxset, on demand, at s4c.cymru, and all the diet and exercise plans are on the website s4c.cymru/ffitcymru
