'Within two months of starting this season I have gained a lifetime personal best performance and achieved a Scottish record in my sport. In addition there have been other gains I was not expecting; the patellar tendinitis I have had in both knees for over 20 years has all but disappeared, (I can play squash again, which I thought was gone forever), chronic lower back pain has eased and I definitely don’t fatigue as easily. A small downside is that I have had to buy new belts as none of my existing ones are small enough. I have dropped 15kg and 4 inches off my waist in the last 4-5 months.'
