Footy le­gends star in men’s fit­ness drive

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

FOR­MER league star Adam MacDougall is launch­ing his online health pro­gram for men – and the best news is even a beer is al­lowed.

The Man Chal­lenge pro­vides men with struc­tured 10-minute daily work­outs and an ac­cred­ited di­eti­tian ap­proved meal plan for a 10-week pro­gram.

The latest Western Syd­ney Dis­trict Health fig­ures re­veal an alarm­ing 66 per cent of adults over 18 in the Black­town lo­cal gov­ern­ment area are obese or over­weight.

The pro­gram aims to im­prove fit­ness and health lev­els across the coun­try.

“The big dif­fer­ence is that you get to do the work­outs live on your mo­bile phone or com­puter with me or a sport­ing celebrity,” MacDougall said.

Par­tic­i­pants are able to train along­side and chal­lenge sport­ing stars in­clud­ing Mark Geyer, who grew up in Wha­lan, Is­rael Fo­lau and Mitchell Pearce for work­outs, with AFL coach Paul Roos pro­vid­ing mes­sages of sup­port and mo­ti­va­tion.

MacDougall said The Man Chal­lenge was suit­able for men of all fit­ness lev­els and ex­pe­ri­ence.

“It doesn’t mat­ter how big or small you are, our pro­gram’s been de­vel­oped to cater for the bloke who’s 80 years or older, or the bloke who’s re­ally small,” he said. “The most im­por­tant thing is that you get to do it with us, so we’re there to sup­port you.” Register at the­man­chal­lenge.com.au.
