Larry’s now fit to inspire
LARRY Emdur wants to be an inspiration to every man to prove they can change their lifestyle habits for the better at any age. Emdur, 50, has lost up to 12kg and now trains regularly as he gets set to finally make an appearance on Dancing With the Stars.
“My motto for my training is if not now, when?” he said.
“I got to 50 and I was 10, 12kg overweight, and I made old man noises when I would get off the lounge.
“I thought, if I don’t do this now, I never will.”
Emdur is about to launch his online training program aimed at men similar to his lifestyle and age.
“It’s all about what is important to me,” he said.
“Is it important that I have this third glass of wine or is it important that I sit on a spin bike for 20 minutes after dinner?
“I was pretty comfortable in my life but it wasn’t until I got fit I realised how unfit and unhealthy I actually was.” One of the benefits of being so fit is now paying off for The Morning Show host as he trains up to five hours a day for Dancing With the Stars.
However, Emdur is petrified of walking down the stairs and dancing live in front of the country on Sunday night.
“I’ve said yes to everything on television,” he said.
“I’ve said yes to Celebrity Dog School, Celebrity Splash, Family Double Dare ... some of the worst shows on TV.
“Dancing With the Stars is the only show I’ve said no to, and that’s because it scares the hell out of me.”
Emdur will arrive in Melbourne tomorrow for rehearsals.
