This is Alan, he’s 45 and CEO of his own business.
He is earning a handsome wage and as far as his family and friends are concerned, he is ridiculously successful and fairly wealthy to boot!
What could he possibly have to complain about?
Whilst he is indeed successful and wealthy, he isn’t overly happy in his personal life.
He is often the butt of his friends’ jokes. He is a good sport and tries to take it on the chin, knowing that they mean no harm.
He even joins in and cracks jokes about his beer belly being “all bought and paid for”, but that’s more of a defense mechanism than anything else.
He’s sick of being the “fat friend”. It’s no fun and doesn’t do his self-esteem or confidence much good either.
Once upon a time, before his business took up so much of his time, Alan used to be quite active, now he can’t climb the stairs without breaking a sweat.
He misses playing football with the lads of a weekend and wishes he had the time, energy and motivation to go to the gym every day. He can’t even keep up with his kids when he takes them to the park.
Alan knows his health is suffering. His GP has already warned him that his blood pressure is up and he needs to start making changes, before he ends up with Type 2 Diabetes and puts himself at further risk of strokes or heart problems.
Sometimes he lays awake at night, unable to sleep and gazes lovingly at his wife sleeping next to him and then the doubts and fears creep in.
"What if she doesn’t find me attractive anymore?” He convinces himself that his wife would be far happier with a younger, fitter model.
Alan has strained relationships with his friends and a strained relationship with his wife. He knows that something needs to change. He can’t keep living like this. He wants to see his kids grow up and have kids of their own!
He is ready to take action.
He is ready to find himself a coach.
