Henchmen: Ali

“So in 2012 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes… and probably a year in, I started to actually lose control over it.” Ali was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as an adult, just four years ago and after seeing a video from HENCH online she contacted us in the hope that she could regain control of her health. She did just this, and a whole lot more – and for this we are extremely proud. Ali is an inspiration to all of those who have been diagnosed with a condition of the body or mind by their GP, given their prescription and sent to the pharmacy convinced that a steady decline in health span and life span should be expected. We are not simply born with our genetic fate sealed, modification of gene expression by the right application of stimuli like exercise, nutrition etc. can be life changing – in a very literal sense. HENCH is dedicated to the pursuit of strength, wellbeing and resilience. Independent, locally owned since 2012. Results-driven training gym Belfast City Centre.

More impressive than losing 22lbs of body fat and packing on a stone of lean muscle? More impressive than being able to knock out just under ten Chin-Ups at over 16 stone bodyweight? What Michael has achieved transcends all of these immense feats, and in truth ...
