In this episode i'm joined by personal trainer Jack Anderson. After struggling to come to terms with being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in his teenage years, Jack is now on a mission to prove that pancreas or no pancreas if you put your mind to it you can pull of some pretty amazing things. Jack also shares his wisdom to help up as get more active as lockdown comes to an end. Let us know on social media if Jack inspires you to get moving!
Here's what Jack has to say about his challenge: 'On the 2nd of January 2015, at the age of 15, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I always remember being told about the implications and limitations this condition would have on my life. I have always been extremely active, playing a number of sports and thankfully Diabetes has not got in the way too much.However I am curious, I want to see what my body is physically capable of. I want to see if it is possible to complete one of the most grueling ultra events as a Type 1 diabetic. I want to inspire and motivate others with medical conditions, not to be defined by them. To accept them, to battle them and to conquer them. To not let them stop you from doing what you want to do, and not letting them stop you from becoming who you want to be. My name is Jack Anderson, I am 20 years old and I am going to be attempting an IronMan triathlon on the 17th of October, 10 days before I'm 21'.
