The Downward Spiral: How Weight Gain & Injury Go Hand in Hand

Published on 3rd Nov 2017 at 17:01 by New You

Being overweight causes incredible stress on the body. According to a Harvard University Medical School publication, obesity directly increases a person’s risk of getting over 50 diseases, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, certain cancers, gout, gallstones, fibromyalgia and depression.

The International Journal of Obesity also states that being overweight causes musculoskeletal issues such as:

  • Osteoarthritis of the knee, hip and hand
  • Ruptured/compressed discs resulting in low back pain, poor posture and gait imbalance
  • Soft Tissue problems (ex. carpal tunnel and plantar fasciitis)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Connective tissue disorders (ex. rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Sleep Apnea and related breathing problems

Obesity is defined as a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or 20% over their ideal weight. Translated simply, anyone in need of losing close to 2 stone is obese.

What Our Clients Say:

"Walking out of New You approx. 14 weeks later was easy. The whole world seemed different, I weighed 60lbs less, I was lighter on my feet having much more energy. Weighing 13 stone 5lbs with a 37.5 inch waist, felt great. Having lots more muscle tone, that felt even better. I am now significantly stronger tighter and fitter than ever before."

David Kiely

"After 12 weeks of 6am starts, constant attention from John, good pains and a well-balanced diet... I love what I have become. I couldn't believe that I fitted back into my leather trousers that I couldn't pull up above my knees. And boy do they fit well! I suppose losing 12 kg of body fat and over 8 inches from my waist whilst gaining nearly 2 kg of muscle had to make a difference. "


"Its nearly 11 months since I started with New You. I haven’t put any weight back on, in fact I have continued to get considerably leaner lighter stronger and fitter.* I weigh just over 13 stone, my body fat is now under 15% which makes me pretty athletic, my waist is down to 32 inches and my lean tissue has continued to improve."

Colin Duffy

"Walking through the doors of NEW YOU for the first time was extremely difficult. At 55-years of age I had very little confidence and low self esteem. Twelve weeks later I walked out of NEW YOU a completely different person. I had dropped 37lbs of body fat, which meant I had gone from just over 11 stone to 8 and a half stone."


"I would like to thank my trainer and the medical support from New You and all the team who took a keen interest in my results. Also a special thanks to my mother Christine who got me started and supported me all the way. I have to say that one of the life changing moments I have had besides everything else… is to be able to buy clothes off the peg."
