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.

Despite being a successful athlete when younger, studying at a prestigious university and being an active participant in student life - even being elected as Vice President of Queen's University Students' Union, Eoin had felt his physical and mental health eroding, and his self c...
