In case you missed it on the Enterprise Fitness blog page…
Recently I was featured on the Channel 9 News!
And what a story!
Channel 9 News came to Enterprise Fitness and asked me to comment on a new study regarding body dysmorphia in males. In this survey, it showed that over 55% of boys aged 12 to 18 experience self-dissatisfaction or want to change parts of their body. The concern being young boys who hit the gym obsessively or even take substances such as steroids or other performance enhancing drugs because they don’t feel ‘man’ enough.
Growing up, I was always labeled as “the fat kid” so I know how it feels. In this video, Channel 9 presenter, Emily Rice, interviews me as they thought I could be the shining example of how to become a healthy person and overcome body dysmorphia.
I’m extremely grateful to be featured in such a great story.
I hope you enjoy this video and if you love it, share it!
