Trainer Mandy Platt has helped a plethora of celebrities get into the shape of their lives.
The 52 year old is well placed to give out health advice after turning her life around and dropping from a size 14 to a size 8.
Speaking exclusively to OK! magazine, Mandy said: “I used to eat loads of rubbish food and although I went to the gym and spent hours running on a treadmill my body still felt flabby.
“At my biggest I was only around a large size 14, but I didn’t feel healthy. I had my lighting bolt moment when I was 45. My children had grown up and my husband was busy with his career.
“Most days I’d sit in my bedroom on my own. I had no self-worth and I felt anxious.”
Speaking about her workouts, she said: “I overhauled my family’s diet and my workouts became fun, short and effective.
“I became a toned size 8 and people were shocked by transformation. By the time I finished my course I had a huge list of clients.”
Mandy recently hit the headlines after appearing on Good Morning Britain and claiming that plus size mannequins didn’t promote healthy living.
She defended her opinion telling OK! magazine: “I’m so passionate about health and fitness and I feel that using overweight mannequins isn’t good for anyone.
“It’s just not a healthy shape to aspire to. Most of my clients start off on the bigger see but being toned and healthy is their goal.”
Many continued: “In my opinion, overweight mannequins do not promote healthy living, it’s just the same as if you had stick stick thin mannequins – neither of those show a healthy size.
“We need examples of what it’s like to be fit and healthy, not the opposite.”
