However, Castleisland Co-Op Mart manager, Richard Harnett is signing up and weighing in to a healthy future at the Abbeyfeale based Shakti Fitness Studio.

The people at the studio were very impressed with Richard's interviews with both Miriam O'Callaghan on the John Murray Show and on the Saturday morning CountryWide with Damien O'Reilly.

On both programmes a frankly and openly honest Mr Harnett told his hosts how a sedentary lifestyle has left him well over his should-be weight.

He also told the nation of his heart operation of a few years ago and of his willingness to fight his way back to positive health.

The Moyvane native, Castleisland resident also raised a flag - in the course of the interviews - for the many lonely people in isolated areas he visits in the course of his job.

It is to the occupants of many of these frightfully hospitable houses that Richard can trace the foundations of the weight problem he's now waging war on.

Next week Shakti Fitness Studio will start its eight-week 'Life Changing Transformation Programme' and they're looking for 20 individuals from the general locality to take part.

"This is an amazing programme that will change your life and attitude towards health and food forever," said studio instructor, Maggie Large.

"This isn't your run of the mill exercise plan with weekly weigh-ins. There's a lot more to it than that. We will guide you every step of the way with expert instruction, guidance and support on vital matters like: exercise, nutrition, motivation and mindset throughout the programme," said Maggie.

Both Maggie and proprietor Breda have over 20 years of certified experience in the area of health and fitness instruction.

Their joint expertise in this and holistic treatments will help you acquire the necessary skills to make exercise part of your lifestyle. They guarantee that the experience will be of benefit to those who take part well after the eight-week programme has run its course. We wish Richard good luck on his journey to good health and look forward to following his progress.
