This weeks ‘Student in the Spotlight’ is Gordon Bain.
Gordon’s been a student at DMC for 4 years. In that time he’s totally fallen in love with Fitness and completely transformed his life and body.
And if that’s not enough he’s also beaten cancer in that time.
Gordon’s before and after pictures are incredible.
He sent me this letter last week
… Gordon Bain 2 years clear.
Wanted to give you a hug this morning after you slapped my arse but not for the wrong reason.
Two years ago at the start of January 2017 I was told that I had the largest tumour the surgeon, who had just carried out the investigation on me, had ever seen. Because of its size it was likely to be cancerous.
Because of its position I would have to get a section of my bowl removed. Because it was at a corner in my bowel it would be unlikely they would be able to put my bowl back together. The future could be a permanent bag, regular surgery, potential poisoning and that was if I made it through the next five weeks, alive!
At that point I was two years in to my DMC training and that meant I was much better placed to deal with what followed both physically and mentally.
Your continuous interaction with me unprompted had an incredible affect on me and still does.
When somebody asked me the other day why I always say I’m fantastic I told them my story, and we both shed a tear.
It was two years ago this week I got the tumour removed successfully without open surgery and confirmation that they had caught it before it turned cancerous.
Today I am two years in to my new life.
I have the right people around me and am making a difference to as many of them that I can.
I am fantastic!
I just wanted to make sure that the people who were around me at that time, and now, know how grateful I am.
You are at the top of that list.
Strength for Life – never truer for me. “
I had tears in my eyes and was very emotional reading this letter. The entire team were very proud as we have all worked together on the Laura, Steven, Pablo and myself all making a collective impact on Gordon’s life.
This is why we love what we do so much it’s very hard for me to articulate and convey how fulfilling it is to help people in this way.
Well done Gordon we are all really proud of you.
Maybe you know someone who’s feeling out of shape and overweight? We would love to help show them how to fix it.
Our success stories speak for themselves and you or the person you know can be our next success.
There is no obligation at all and we have 3 different packages so there really is something for everyone.
Wishing health, happiness and “Strength for Life”
